Round The World Trips In FS2002.

Fri Dec 17, 2004 10:23 am

Does anyone know a good round the world trip from a european city (mainly DUB, SNN, LHR, CDG, AMS or FRA). It can take me over the North Pole, Atlantic Ocean or the South Pole. The airplane I will most likley be using would be an A330/A340, B737, B777, B767. Could you list them in order of visit.

Also what do you do in a world trip?...Do you- Put all of the destinations on the GPS as way points, land there then save it. Then continue on to the next airport as one whole flight.
Or When you land at each airport, you exit the flight then start from the airport you left off and go to the next destination and do the same. Therefore making a lot of seperate flights.

Well I was planning on doing a round the world tour in FS9 (FS2004) on as many airlines as possible and as many diff a/c types as possible. It went something like if I flew in Canada, I flew on AC or Westjet. In the US, I flew AA, NW, DL, etc... you get the idea.

As for the routing (by country, too long to make it by airport) went something like:

Canada-USA-St Maarten-Curacao-Suriname-Brazil-Uruguay-Argentina-Chile-Peru-Ecuador-Colombia-Panama-Costa Rica-Mexico-USA-Canada-USA-Russia-Japan-Korea-China-Philipines-Fiji-Australia-New Zealand-Australia-Singapore-Thailand-India-Pakistan-UAE-Israel-Egypt... And it went on along Africa's coast, then North to Europe through Spain-France-Ireland-UK-Netherlands-Denmark-Germany-Czech Republic-Austria-Italy-Switzerland-France-Iceland-USA

I did about one leg per day, 'cause I don't have the time to do it all at once! But you probably got the idea

Yeah I just been around the world (finishing of as it happens, two legs left) anyway, the route that we took was as follows.

EGLL-WSSS
WSSS-YBBN
YBBN-YBCS
YBCS-PHNL
PHNL-PANC
PANC-BIKF
BIKF-EGSS

The route is entirely up to you. You can go wherever you wan make as many or as little stops as you like.

As for the GPS thing. Well I don't use default panels/gauges. I use payware aircraft all that have an FMC/MCDU. Below I will explain what aircraft I used on the routes.

EGLL-WSSS B747-400 (By PSS)
WSSS-YBBN B747-400 (By PSS)
YBBN-YBCS B737-800 (By PMDG)
YBCS-PHNL A340-300 (By PSS)
PHNL-PANC A340-300 (By PSS)
PANC-BIKF (Still to fly this leg)
BIKF-EGSS (Still to fly this leg)

So dependent upon the flight time and personal preference then it is entirely up to you what you fly.

I will now include a link of URL web links to the relevant creators/designers of the aircraft named above.

Many thanks and have fun!

There is no certain way to do this, do it in a way that's sounds enjoyable to you. Personally I like to fly at the accurate time of the time zone I am in.
