Drama on the Gauligletscher   

November 19, 1946, After WWII in Europe, a C-53 Dakota with US-Generals with their wives and a little girl on board took off at Vienna heading toward Pisa. A heavy thunderstorm drifted the airplane over the Swiss Alps. Like a miracle the pilot could fly around the dangerous peaks of the Alps until it crashed on the Gauligletscher. Then the spectacular rescue operations in the Swiss Alps began. 
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.



he glacier landing fields of Volume 2

The glacier landing fields designed for this addon are also used for real glacier flying in Switzerland. Usually airports in FSX are designed in a flat environment. The glacier landing fields are designed with a slope between 3.0° and 8.4° 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:

  • Allalin
  • Gauligletscher
  • Glärnischfirn
  • Grand Gombin
  • Griesgletscher
  • Les Diablerets
  • Monte Rosa
  • Pigne d’Arolla
  • Plaine Morte
  • Plateau de Trient

Special features of the glacier landing fields:

  • Specially designed landing fields with a slope of 3.0° to 8.4°
  • 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 takeoff 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 to be switched on and off by means of the COM1 frequency
  • Static aircraft and other 3D objects on the landing fields




The Fieseler Fi 156 Storch

The Fieseler Storch was designed by Simon Smeiman. The version with wheels combined with skis was specially designed for Swiss Glacier Pilot Volume 2. The four classical Swiss Air Force paint schemes 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 Fieseler Storch:

  • Combination of wheels and skis. The skis can be lowered for landing on glaciers and raised for landings on hard surface.
  • Two models with or without shooter on the back seat.
  • Four Swiss Air Force paint schemes A-96, A-97, A-98 und A-99.
  • Animations of all control surfaces.
  • Detailed and very realistic virtual cockpit.
  • Very realistic engine sound.
  • Automatic activation of the parking brake when trying to take off on a concrete runway with the skis in lower position.
  • When placing the aircraft by means of the FSX menu "go to airport...", the mixture is set automatically to the actual altitude.





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 landing field

  • From Wangen-Lachen to the Glaernischfirn
  • From Sion to the Plateau du Trient

Flying between three glaciers

  • From the glacier of Allalin via the glacier of Monte-Rosa-Gletscher to the glacier of Theodul
  • From Plaine-Morte via the glacier on the Wildhorn to the glacier on
    Les Diablerets (this mission only if Volume 1 ist installed)

Special features of these missions

  • Voice over for each language version in order to guide through the mission.
  • Specially designed medals and certificates.
