An Idea For Choosing Your Fs Flights.

Tue Aug 09, 2005 9:50 pm

www.azworldairports.com
list thousands of world airports most you can fly into using 747 or 767 the smaller ones have long enough runways for 737's and most have ILS.
As an idea if you get stuck deciding where to fly to next ;what ive been doing is starting with the 1st airport listed under 'A' then flying to the next airport listed , from then on flying onto the next listed airport from the nearest airport on the list ive already flown to.So flights should get progressively shorter.
Ive been using the 763 for long flights and the 737 for shorter flights and for airports with short runways.
Ive had to make unscheduled landings three times,a emergency landing in Africa so i could get to work on time, and on another flight i had to stop for fuel.Ive also had to divert in Australia because of zero vis on a non ils approach.
By the time i get to Z ill be a  old

If you want some mystery try selecting an airport but conceal the airport pulldown menu and just scroll up and down the airport list and click and try to guess where you are when the game opens.

its too bad that you have a good chance of ending up at a private grass strip. I hope fs2006 will have an option for runway lengths and stuff.

Yes ive already tried this,and you can conceal where you are going until you begin your descent.When you get ATC clearance you have to put your fingers in your ears and cover the screen at the flight planning stage.The problem is about 75% of the flights you end up in the US.
I once did a random flight from USA -baghdad both the departure and arrival airport were randomly selected.
