The English Lake District for Prepar3D V4 only.
This product is also available for X-Plane 11 here.
This is going to be my first of many guides to the Lake District for people who simply want to know more about this diamond in the crown of England. I am using Alfred Wainwright’s love of the lakes to help me take you on a tour of the walks of the Lake District. You will see things AW wished he could have seen and Kris Pye has been kind enough to let us use his Altramax Microlight.
Most of the walks take anything up to 8 hours trudging over the fells, in the Altramax it will take us 30 minutes at the most and I have supplied a few arrows to help guide you on your way and don’t forget each of the airstrips have there own GPS which can be seen on the GPS/Map.
The tour requires Prepar3D v4 and one of these photographic scenery packages:
- Megascenery England and Wales
- Just Flight Photographic Scenery Vol. 4 Northern England
- Playsim Photographic Scenery Vol. 3
These flights are only made possible thanks to Megascenery, Just Flight or Playsim’s excellent photographic scenery. This program was designed using a 10m mesh so there may be some anomalies with Playsim’s 5m mesh (fence may be slightly mis-aligned).
The 35 page guidebook is the heart of the tour, offering maps, photos, instructions and a detailed week-long itinerary that will guide your flights to the best parts of the scenery. Also included are Kris Pyatt’s Altramax, the ideal aircraft for exploring, plus flight plans, and scenery with sounds and effects.
