Take-off in an Agusta Westland helicopter from a very interesting fictitious Montenegro Resort airport LYDR with a cliff edge threshold to search for a crashed helicopter in a deep mountain ravine and rescue any possible survivors. Another surprise rescue awaits you on your return but you can decide if you wish to carry it out or not. The Westland is a very easy chopper to fly. Flying Realism is set to relaxed and the Crash Behavior set to "User Specified" so you don't have to worry about it ending your mission if you happen to clip a tree or land a bit too hard. Enjoy the beautiful orange Montenegro sunset and the scenery.

Watched the Tour de France 2017. Stage 18 looked sort of interesting as a possible mission, so that is what I've made. In the actual tour, there are bikes, motorcycles, cars and helicopters used along the route. A map of stage 18 has been provided. I set out points of interest about 10-15 miles apart. The route is in the Alps and is 179.5km (111.5 miles, or about 100nm) long. The final destination is essentially at a mountain top. Take off in an AirCreation Trike Ultralight from Briancon, to St. Crepin airport to Embrun to Le Sauze du Lac to the airport at Barcelonette to Guillostre and land at the high region of Col d' Izoard. Should you prefer to use a helicopter, feel free to change the trike, say, in the FLT file. In any case, Touch & Goes at each point of interest and land at Col d'Izoard. I added crowds at the points of interest. That has required the use of FSX Acceleration or Gold.

There is a sailplane tutorial & mission in FSX. This hang glider mission is placed in the same region. For a better experience in this hang glider mission, I found it fun to use the thermals in the area. In your settings, choose weather and the option of schematic to make the thermals visible. When you lift off from the mountain, perform about a 180 degree turn & you should see a high thermal spiral very close by. Lift off is from about 11,560'. By circling within the thermal, you should be able to reach 18,000' to 20,000' without too much difficulty. This opens up the possibility to reach some distant airports at over 50 miles away.
