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.

(3) Is a Skyhawk flight from Louisville, to Frankfort, KY and on to Lexington, KY...maybe! There is a reward in (1), none in (2) or (3) . There are small downloads for (1) & (2).

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.

Take off in a Mooney Bravo from Aosta airport, Italy and fly to Raron airport in Switzerland. Pay close attention to your altitude. An intermediate level mission. The Mooney Bravo with G1000 might be a better choice. Check the Sim line in the FLT file and use the alternative if you want to.

Take off in a Maule Orion on skis at Tiksi airport, Russia and deliver supplies to 3 outposts. Then return to Tiksi. FSX scenery was added to make the outposts. A fairly simple mission. The Maule comes with the FSX Deluxe & Gold editions. Should you want a different aircraft, you can make the change in the FLT file.
