Hey Norm,
I'm old but not quite that old.  The F4U was retired in 1953 only 8 years after WWII.  My attack days were in the 'Spad' A-1 Skyraider.  Last fixed wing was the SP2H transitioned to Rotary wing and was instructor in both fixed and rotary wing.  At least I missed out on LTA (lighter than air BLIMPS).  Although last fleet location was NAS Lakeview next door to the old Hindenburg hangar. (no I wasn't at the crash!!! ::))

lol Sorry bout that Spud.

A-1 Skyraider.. also fantastic plane.. but I don't have one in my sim!! (I'll have to find one for sure now!!.

I have a special place in my heart for the A1.

http://www.fsfiles.org/flightsimshotsv2/image/GIbd

Here's the only picture I have of an A1-H named for my mother Nancy Lou Allen. My father, CMSGT George B. Allen Jr. was the maintenance crew chief for a squadron of A1's named the "Zorro's" who were based out of Nakhon Phanom during the Viet Nam war.

(22d Air Commando Squadron (re designated 22nd Special Operations Squadron August 1, 1968), 27 November 1967 - 30 June 1975, call sign "Zorro":(A-1E/G/H/J, Tail Code: TS)

I actually own a die-cast model of her too.

Hello!

Still I am amazed about the huge information I have here! I was looking for some kind of missions for bushflying and never found anything until this weekend looking for Bush Flying VAs in AVSIM forum someone mencioned this place.
And here I am... trying to configure everything, that is not an easy task. Really thankyou for all your effort. See you in the skies!

Hi Japo32,
Welcome to RTMM. There is a lot to see and do at RTMM. To make RTMM "work" just make sure you have all of the required ORBX, and TF base scenery installed and running first. Then download and install all of the required RTMM object libraries. Then start downloading and exploring RTMM scenery files one by one to get a feel for what RTMM is all about. There's a HUGE virtual world available here.

Hey there Japo32.. and welcome.

RTMM has a full place here of sim add-ons and enhancements but for clarity, RTMM is not a VA in the sense that I think you are referring to: This is not a VA environment as in flying/filing/submitting flight legs for approval for earning VA pilot flight hours, flying tours etc in a VA environment but it is a site that provides great custom add-ons and enhancements for those areas.

So here there are many scenery custom add-ons, enhancements as well as flight plans - and all freeware). If you want to fly bush in Alaska, BC and Yukon, these add-ons provided here indeed make your sim come alive: from custom scenery locations to so many other enhancements plus many other items to help you fly these locations such as flight plans etc on the Here to There page. (FSX/P3D).

If you are also looking for a real "Bush VA" that operates in these same areas of Alaska, BC and Yukon there are only a couple but only one VA that I know of that is totally bush and actually incorporates custom RTMM scenery add-ons into their VA systems. Partner site: Alaska Adventures VA. (I am involved with both RTMM and Alaska Adventures).  At AKA, "No tubes" - It's all bush, over 2000 flight legs, scenic tours and many of the tour incorporate RTMM scenery in a VA environment, but if you don't have the custom RTMM scenery add-ons in your sim - well you can't see or land at many of the required locations. SIMS: FSX/P3D and some X-plane users can fly some of the stuff that is not RTMM dependent. Anyways you can take a look at Alaska Adventures VA if you are looking for a bush VA that covers the same area as RTMM - http://www.flyaka.com/ .

Welcome aboard Jappo,
seems as if everyone else has already chimed in to say HI!  They have all mislead you, after getting all the good "stuff" at RTMM your required to meet the gang at Misty's Place and buy us all a beer!
At the moment lots of folks are switching to P3D (Lockheed Martin) and there are some changes being made to files etc. so keep active on site and you will be OK.
Later,
Spud

Sure that beers!
Yes but I see you are very active in P3Dv4 and that is fine! yesterday I could make my first M001H without any issue once I configured everything (that is not short to do it, but easy following the instructions)

cheers,

Javier
