Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 New Zealand Videos

Postby Radar88 » Sat Aug 01, 2020 12:57 pm

A repository for all Microsoft Flight Simulator related Videos covering New Zealand.

In case anyone missed my other posting here's the 1st video done by The Flight Sim Deck YT Channel. His video showcases the Beta Preview of NZQN Queenstown Airport with a 20 minute flight around the Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown area.

The Flight has been done in the Yellow Savage Club with some Bush Flying Landings alongside Lake Wakatipu and also on the hillside near Cecil Peak above Lake Wakatipu overlooking Queenstown. It's well worth the watch, not to bad for a non New Zealander being a Southern Californian Flight Simmer content creator from America who's never been to NZ before.

Next up is another one from Juan-Peter (JP) Schulze aka the_candourist who's an American real world adventure Pilot now living in New Zealand, check out his Youtube Channel. Not sure if he's a NZFF member but congrat's if he is, welcome and well done.

He's been on the Alpha program and has now a Beta Preview of NZAA in this video Microsoft Flight Simulator NZAA Flight Pity about the large amount of Trees around NZAA hopefully it will get sorted in time.

Brilliant thread.
I would think that NZAA would be a great candidate for a custom airport, in fact I've imagined that maybe there isn't too much effort gone into it in MFS simply because Flightbeam will handle this....

One other bizarre, random video with a NZ link -- here's a video promoting MFS as a photography preview/planning tool, and includes a view of the Wanaka Tree in MFS:)

From Squirrel Youtube channel with a NZCH take off for a quick trip Sport plane flying @19:20 NZCH - NZFF Forest Field Aerodrome a small private airport 10 nautical miles to the northwest of Christchurch International Airport in Canterbury, with some Crazy Multiplayer Fun flying Take Off's @ 22:20 in A320 and 747 Tubeliners from NZFF Forest Field Aerodrome.
What's Multiplayer Like in Microsoft Flight Simulator? (Bush Flying, Storms, Jets)

Also from Drawyah Youtube channel a 1st look at the Nelson Golden Bay area with a 40 minute coastal scenic VFR flight from Nelson NZNS to Takaka NZTK.

Looks like Nelson could do with a bit of TLC from some of Rob's Godzone scenery magic, who would've thought Nelson as being the Gold Coast of NZ in the tropic's with Palm Tree's.

Yeah, one thing obvious from this steam -- Milford Sound is munted, just like in FSX. There's no Mitre Peak at all. I used to think that this was just a bad SRTM mesh back when FSX was released, but surprised that's this is still bad.

The stalling and spinning sure looks realistic. Impressive.

Found this one of a short 7min Twilight 5:40pm flight below 1000ft from NZAA taking off on runway 23 in an Icon A5 overhead the International Terminal doing a circuit loop around and out towards Mangere, taking in suburbia of Favona and Mangere East then heading towards Papatoetoe.

Kiwi Mace has shown a few NZ airports, NZAA, Ardmore, North Shore, Taupo. Ardmore has a lot of buildings, which is great, but far too many trees in the area!

And another look at Auckland, from MrYorkiesWorld.

I haven't mentioned the Skytower before, as I didn't want to disappoint. And the bridge is there, but not harbour bridge-shaped. Still the city looks great.

For Kiwi's by a Kiwi courtesy of the NZ Propeller Aviation You Tube Channel.

Check out a default Cessna 152 in a Winter take off from Mount Cook Airport (NZMC), circle up and down along the Tasman river until a safe altitude to bypass the peak of Aoraki / Mount Cook then descended back down and landed back at NZMC.

Here's a particularly good look at NZ -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Hu_xQdl-V4
At about 5:00 the misty look is freakily real.

Hey, I saw my sister's house at Ashburton:) She's coming for lunch tomorrow, I'm pretty sure she won't care...
Ashburton is a good example of a NZ town, it looks decidedly realistic, and as I've modelled the airport before I can instantly recognise everything there.
However that stall warning really freaked me out, I had to turn the sound off.
