Alaska

Alaska, FSX

Alaska is a state of the United States in the northwestern America. The scenery of Alaska is characterized by the cold climate and the many mountains and shorelines. Like any US states, Alaska is covered by plenty of airports and air stripes.

There is many ways to see Alaska from air. For example make VFR flights from air strip to air strip (e.g. in a seaplane) or IFR flights between the state cities or interstates. A major airline is the Alaska Airlines with a main fleet of Boeing 737s.

Major cities and airports

Anchorage is the largest city in the state. The city airport, Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (PANC), has a high-detailed scenery. Among its many approaches you may try the Highway Visual Rwy 25R/Seward Visual Rwy 25L.

Fairbanks. The city airport is the Fairbanks International Airport (PAFA). Somewhat untraditional there is a 5400 ft long water runway in the middle of the airport area.

Juneau is the state capital. There is no roads leading in or out of Juneau, so the only way to reach the city is via sea or air. The city airport is the Juneau International Airport (PAJN). Try one of the very difficult circle-to-land runway 26 procedures in a heavy jet (the runway has no straigt-in approaches due to obstacles).

To-do: PADU, 47AK, PAGY

Comments:

A lot of AI aircraft dont shoot the Juneau 26 appr properly, as ATC assigns straight in landings...so a lot of Ai arcraft will keep going missed until they disappear, because they cant descend fast enough and dont circle to land.
Fly from Lake Hood Seaplane Base in Anchorage, adjacent to Ted Stevens Intl. It's the largest floatplane base in the world. Also do a tour of Denali (Mt. McKinley) from Talkeetna. real world base for many of these flights!
Try flying from AQY. Some "interesting" terrain to inject a little excitement into your flying!
Take off from Rwy 2 at PAGY. Because of terrain you have to turn right a bit before you make the left traffic pattern. make sure you give yourself enough room to make the left turn. It was established after a plane stalled trying to climb above the mountain and crashed. Have fun.
Here's the remark for PAGY Rwy 02:
DEPG RY 02 REQUIRES A HIGH PERFORMANCE CLIMB DUE TO TERRAIN. ACFT DEPG RY 02 MAY DOGLEG TO THE EAST BEFORE TURNING CROSSWIND TO INCREASE ALT. WHEN DEPARTING RY 02 MAINTAIN RY HEADING FOR AT LEAST 1/2 MILE BEFORE DOGLEGGING TO THE EAST TO AVOID NEARBY SCHOOL AND PLAY GROUND.
the comment about aircrafts who cannot descent fast enough is false because the aircrafts AI go throu mountains
Take a ride to Adak island it is almost 2,000 miles from Anchorage.
try flying a king air from emmonak to anchorage
From Fairbanks rent a Cessna and fly to Kantishna Airport (5Z5): only 112 NM southeast of Fairbanks, this small town has about 135 summer residents (no one lives here in the winter), and is known as "The End of the Road" and "The Heart of Denali National Park". There are but two ways to get here - by bus from the Park entrance, or by small aircraft to the 1,850 foot
gravel runway, RWY 10/28. The GPS coordinates for the airport are N63.542, W150.994, but here's a simple two-leg route: from Fairbanks fly heading 226 for 45 NM to Nenana VOR (ENN 115.8) or ICE POOL NDB (ICW 525), then turn South on a heading of 193 for 81
NM to reach Kantishna. There are no published instrument procedures, so you'll need some good weather - look for a road running along the East side of the runway - it's in a canyon so be careful with wind shear. The elevation of the airport is 1575 feet. You'll see lots of the rocky stuff off to the South, and if conditions are right maybe even Denali itself.

So beautiful.
emmonak to anchorage was a beautiful flight in real time weather. King air 350. GPS nav
A game where you can build stuff, and fly planes! Its called ROBLOX.com
