1U7 Bear Lake County (X-Plane)

1U7 Bear Lake County (X-Plane)

Bear Lake County Airport sits just north of Bear Lake along the Utah / Idaho border. It averages 200 hops a month, with only four GA aircraft based an the field full-time. This strip is a nice stopover for your flights from the mountains and National Parks of Wyoming and Idaho to those UT. To use this scenery you will need these libraries:

It also benefits from Airport Environment HD, as do all X-Plane airports.

This scenery is good for XP 10 and 11. The attached screen caps are with my own orthophoto tile underneath and World2XP America / HD Mesh 3, but note that this scenery has no embedded ortho images.

This scenery is freeware and may get it here at the .org. Thanks for looking and happy flying.

Place-To-Place Update

As I noted here, I’ve started flying a Piper Saratoga place-to-place in the sim. The first leg was KSLC to 1U7 Bear Lake Co. Yesterday I continued the journey with a flight to KWYS Yellowstone (via the Jackson Hole VOR and on PilotEdge), and today went on KSUN Friedman which is the local strip for Sun Valley, ID. My goal is to continue making my way up to Spokane to enjoy the PilotEdge expansion field of KGEG. I’ll see what seems interesting from there.

For the Yellowstone leg I built custom scenery for 1U7 and KWYS both, as the in-game and .org offerings were pretty meager. I’ll upload them to the .org in the next day or two and post them here as well so you can have them if you’d like them. I also shot video of the entire 1U7-KWYS flight, and I’ll be uploading it soon as well.

Finally, I thought it would be cool to take screen caps of the virtual Saratoga at each stop along the way. I missed KSLC and 1U7, but here are the rest.
