Pre-conditions:
  • Flight Simulator P3D Version 4.1 or 4.2 by Lockheed Martin
  • Switzerland Professional X available from www.mailsoft.com is recommended but not mandatory. See support page
    The Glacier landing fields are neither compatible with the P3D default scenery nor with FSGlobal.
   
The glacier landing fields
   

The glacier landing fields designed for this addon are also used for real glacier flying in Switzerland. Usually airports in P3D are designed in a flat environment. The glacier landing fields are designed with a slope between 2.5° and 10.5° in direction for landing and takeoff and are a special feature of this addon. Take the chance to experience flying on the photorealistic glacier on the basis of Switzerland Professional X.

The landing fields on the following glaciers are included:

  • Kanderfirn
  • Petersgrat
  • Jungfraujoch
  • Clariden
  • Wildhorn
  • Allalin
  • Gauligletscher
  • Glärnischfirn
  • Grand Gombin
  • Griesgletscher
  • Les Diablerets
  • Monte Rosa
  • Pigne d’Arolla
  • Plaine Morte
  • Plateau de Trient
  • Rhonegletscher
  • Vadret Pers

On each of these glaciers 1, 2 or 3 landing fields are designed.

Special features of the glacier landing fields:

  • Specially designed landing fields with a slope of 2.5° to 10.5°.
  • Ski tracks on the landing fields for better visibility.
  • Acoustic effects: Combined touch down sound for snow surface and concrete runway.
  • Visual effects: Snow cloud during take off and landing and with higher motor rpm.
  • Snow surface on the glaciers for realistic behavior of the plane on snow.
  • Red marking frame of the landing fields for better visibility when set the scenery density to "Extremely Dense".
  • Static aircraft and other 3D objects on the landing fields.

The Piper Super Cub and the Fieseler Storch
   

Piper Super Cub,
The original model of the Piper Super Cub for the Flight Simulator was designed by Simon Smeiman.
The 4 classical Swiss paint schemes were designed by Kurt Stöckli and correspond to reality. 4 civil versions HB-PHZ, HB-OBY, HB-PBA, HB-PMN and 2 versions of the Swiss Air Force V-654 and KAB-101 as used from 1964 to 1976 are included. 

Special features of the Piper Super Cub
For this addon, some of the aerodynamic parameters were slightly adapted in order to reach the glaciers between 8700 feet and 11700 feet.

The following features were added to original the piper:

  • Automatic activation of the parking brake when trying to take off on a concrete runway with the skis in lower position.
  • Automatic activation of the parking brake as soon as the skis are retracted (higher position) on the glacier landing fields.

The Fieseler Storch
The original model of the Fieseler Storch for the Flight Simulator was designed by Simon Smeiman.
The version with wheels combined with skis was specially designed for Swiss Glacier Pilot Volume. The 5 classical Swiss Air Force paint schemes and 1 civil repaint were designed by Kurt Stöckli. 

Special features of the Fieseler Storch
For this addon, some of the aerodynamic parameters were slightly adapted in order to reach the altitude for the glaciers up to 13'000 feet.

The following features were added to the original Fieseler Storch:

  • Combination of wheels and skis. The skis can be lowered for landing on glaciers and raised for landings on hard surface.
  • Automatic activation of the parking brake when trying to take off on a concrete runway with the skis in lower position.

The glacier missions
   

The glacier flying missions are available in English, German and French. The preferred language version can be selected during installation.

The Missions are grouped into three different types of flights: Flying from an airfield to one of the glaciers:

Rescue on the Gauligletscher
- The Mission „Rescue on the Gauligletscher“ takes you from the airport
  Meiringen to the location where you can see the crashed C-53 Dakota. After
  that you proceed to the landing field on the Gauligletscher and then back to
  Meiringen.

From an Airport to a Glacier
- from Reichenbach to the glacier Kanderfirn
- from Mollis to the glacier Clariden
- from Sion to the glacier Wildhorn
- from Wangen-Lachen to the Glärnischfirn
- from Sion to the Plateau de Trient

Flying between two glaciers:
-
from Petersgrat to the Jungfraujoch
- from Kanderfirn to Wildhorn
- from Allalin via Monte-Rosa-Gletscher to Theodul
- from Plaine-Morte via Wildhorn to Les Diablerets
- Training flights on one glacier

Training flight on:
- Kanderfirn
- Clariden

Special features of these missions

  • Voice over for each language version in order to guide through the mission.
  • Three different skill levels of missions, Intermediate, Advanced and Expert are available
