Swiss Seaplane Pilot

This Addon comprises:

  • 80 lakes reworked for seaplane flying based on Switzerland Pro X by Flylogic
  • Most lakes are equipped with a jetty to park any seaplane and with fuel stations.
  • Some lakes are frozen during winter time and prepared for landing and takeoff. Some of the lakes have a marked runway on the frozen surface (FSX only).
  • All barrier lakes in the mountains have masonries.
  • Piper Super Cub Amphibian
  • 3 FSX missions to explore the Swiss lake scenery (FSX only)
  • Manual in German, French and English

Pre-conditions:
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator FSX with SP2 or FSX Acceleration Pack or Lockheed Martin Prepar3D
  • Switzerland Professional X available from www.mailsoft.com
    The Swiss lake scenery is neither compatible with the FSX default scenery nor with FSGlobal.
   
The Swiss Lake Scenery
   

The surfaces of the Swiss lakes are too bumpy for Seaplane flying when using Switzerland Pro X by Flylogic. The water along the shore lines is not flat and is climbing up the hill a bit. With the addon "Swiss Seaplane Pilot", 80 lakes are flattened and corrected along the shore lines. Therefore the lakes are well prepared for seaplane flying. The images to the right show the comparison.

Most lakes are equipped with a jetty to park any seaplane, some of them have a fuel station.

The reworked barrier lakes are all equipped with masonries.

Some lakes are frozen during winter time and the ice surface is prepared for takeoff and landing. On some frozen lakes there is a marked runway available.

The following link opens a list with all reworked lakes. The list also shows the jetties available, how the lakes can be reached and which lakes are frozen in winter.

The Piper Super Cub Amphibian
   

The Piper Super Cub Amphibian was designed by Simon Smeiman. The two classical Swiss paint schemes were designed by Kurt Stöckli and correspond to reality.

Furthermore, the following features were implemented:

  • Combination of landing gear and floats. The landing gear can be extended to land on hard surface and on the ice of frozen lakes.
  • Two Swiss paint schemes HB-OPP and HB-PQJ
  • Standard animation of all movable parts.
  • Detailed and very realistic virtual cockpit.
  • Very realistic engine sound.
  • In case the aircraft is placed on a high altitude lake, the mixture control is set automatically.

The original manual by Simon Smeiman comes with the addon.
