Mountain Flying in Switzerland
Welcome to beautiful Geneva, Switzerland. Today is a gorgeous day to be taking your first mountain flight in the Swiss Alps. Your round trip will take you over two mountain passes, an airport in the middle of a steep sided canyon and another airport in the heart of the Alps. Each add-on mission for FSX includes:
- Detailed aeronautical charts of your departure, route, and arrival
- FSX Nav Log, Flightplan and GPS with programmed waypoints
- Real world voice actors with written text of entire dialog
Part 1: Col de Coux
This first leg takes you from the grass runway in Geneva up and over a mountain pass named Col de Coux and down to an airport in a canyon. Along the way you’ll be able to enjoy all the beautiful scenery, including incredible views of the snow covered Alps and Lake Geneva, with its world famous jet d’eau. The chief flight instructor from the Aeroclub de Genève will help you navigate and also handle all the radio communications, but it will be up to you to safely arrive at your destination. You are the Pilot in Command!

Part 2: Sanetsch Pass
This second leg picks up from where you left off, in Sion. You will need to climb to 9,500 feet ASL to make it over the Sanetsch Pass, which is located very close to the Sion airport. Once over the pass, it’s a beautiful descent into the valley, where you will overfly Gstaad while maneuvering to land at the short runway of Saanen. You won’t be able to see the runway of Saanen until already on base, so listen carefully to the flight instructor, who of course is with you again for this leg. She’ll help you navigate and handle the radio, but once again it will be up to you to safely arrive at your destination. You are the Pilot in Command!

This last leg of your round trip flight takes you from Saanen, over Château-d’Œx and up to the Col de Jaman mountain pass. After successfully crossing the pass you will be rewarded with an amazing view of Lake Geneva. Your scenic flight also takes you over Evian, France, the home of the world famous mountain spring water. The chief flight instructor from the Aeroclub de Genève will help you navigate, handle all the radio communications, and point out some areas of interest along your route. As usual, it will be up to you to safely arrive at your destination, which on this leg is back on the grass runway in Geneva. You are the Pilot in Command!
