This flight takes us from Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, to Oban, a picturesque town on the west coast of Scotland. It mirrors a flight I made in real life in my microlight (also known as a trike, flexwing or ultralight) in May 2009.

Pictures from the real flight can be found here: [1]. That particular flight actually took off from my home airfield of East Fortune, and took 2 hours at 70mph, but that runway is a bit short for most GA aircraft, and taking off from Edinburgh shortens the flight slightly.

For those not using Terrasync, the required scenery is w010n50.

Our flight starts from Edinburgh International Airport (EGPH). I would suggest using a GA aircraft. So, those using the command-line may enter:
