Italy IFR Turboprop Tour 2013

Recommended Posts

LEG 7: Brindisi Casale, LIBR - Aristotelis, LGKA
Route: GOKEL M603 KAS
Allowed altitude: FL110 to FL270 Inclusive

A little hop outside italian boundaries. The next leg will take us to a small airport in Greece, surrounded by high mountains.
Now that P3Dv2 is out, why not get back to the oldie goldie FS9? :D

I still have it alive and kicking, a great sim despite its age.

ROS-2013-dec-7-003_zps3e3f15dc.jpg

There were tons of dust on this Aircraft, but we are safely airborne:

We have performed a standard traffic pattern, the airport is VFR only:

A loooong float over the runway, but we have landed at least:

Only 3°C outside, time for a hot cup of tea.

The cabin heating is working good anyway:

In a few minutes we reach the top of clouds:

LEG 10: Pescara, LIBP - Rimini Miramare, LIPR
Route: INKIM Y579 NUTRO L612 ANC
Allowed altitude: FL120 to FL180 Inclusive

I have to stop reading MH reviews! :D
Don't tell wifey, but I couldn't wait to fly the newest addition to my hangar. A brand new, sleek, fast turboprop, well suitable for this tour.


2013-12-20_14-58-36-275BMP_zps1fa4d8bc.j

Weather is awesome, but we expect low visibility in Rimini:

2013-12-20_15-15-22-514BMP_zpseaadc1d7.j

ATC vectors us enroute:

2013-12-20_15-28-21-779BMP_zpsba4ee229.j

After a really short cruise, we are cleared to descend when near Ancona. Some memories, I did the first month of military service here.

2013-12-20_15-56-14-633BMP_zpsdffa4a21.j

ATC vectors us for a visual approach to runway 13. Gear is down and we are potentially ready to put her down, but visibility is really low.

2013-12-20_16-20-17-615BMP_zpse79497cf.j

How do they say? "When in doubt, go around". It's hard to explain why you didn't.

2013-12-20_16-22-3-410BMP_zps5c49c3f9.jp

So we request a safe ILS app for runway 13:

2013-12-20_16-42-22-33BMP_zps902b1e8c.jp

And is nice to be on the runway again:

2013-12-20_16-44-9-496BMP_zpsd50a5141.jp

Time for a beer on Rimini seaside:

LEG 12: Padova, LIPU - Portoroz, LJPZ

Route: CHI M167 ROTAR

Allowed altitude: FL100 to FL180 Inclusive

I do love these short legs, where climb, cruise and descent follow one another quickly.

Padova is a small airport, but has some nice procedures.

We will depart from runway 22, so let's check the initial climb procedure and the SID.

After the initial climb procedure we will reach SELIK intersection, the track the 283° radial to CHI VOR.

Radios are set, engine is spooling nicely, we can start our flight.

2013-12-21_17-43-37-563BMP_zps0b69356c.j

And we are cleared for takeoff:

2013-12-21_17-45-7-559BMP_zpsf46cae30.jp

Following the needle to Chioggia VOR:

2013-12-21_17-50-22-661BMP_zps1aaa6765.j

Cruising at FL120:

2013-12-21_17-54-16-945BMP_zps023f314c.j

We do not have so much time, let's check the approach charts to Portoroz. According to the METAR, we can expect a VOR approach to runway 15.

Time to start our descent to 2.700':

2013-12-21_17-57-30-134BMP_zps3cf80a5c.j

A short procedure, and we are on final:

2013-12-21_18-22-21-883BMP_zps4375483c.j

Lining up:

2013-12-21_18-24-9-724BMP_zpsd5a48e07.jp

Backtracking the runway:

2013-12-21_18-26-16-922BMP_zpsad7feada.j

Thanks for Flying with us today! :)

Route: ILB N737 ARLON/N0220F135 VFR

Allowed altitude: FL110 to FL230 Inclusive

Dispatcher comments: FILE A Y FLIGHT PLAN

Another leg out of boundaries, to a small airfield in Slovenia.

And another change of Aircraft, the latest addition to my FS9 fleet (still growing despite the simulator age).

ROS-2013-dec-22-001_zps4b32fa83.jpg

At holding point, we will backtrack and take off from runway 33:

ROS-2013-dec-22-002_zpsadd9b744.jpg

The C90 is in the air pretty fast:

ROS-2013-dec-22-004_zps2fb62f17.jpg

Climbing to FL130, above a thick overcast:

ROS-2013-dec-22-005_zps23d8816d.jpg

And in an eyeblink we are cruising:

ROS-2013-dec-22-007_zpsa8bece03.jpg

We are descending to the last IFR point of our route, ARLON:

ROS-2013-dec-22-013_zps1fd88120.jpg

From now on, we are on VFR, even if barely VMC:

ROS-2013-dec-22-014_zps41b5d9b0.jpg

Field in sight, let's join a right traffic pattern, with a sharp eye to the Hills around:

ROS-2013-dec-22-015_zpsc40289e9.jpg

On short final:

ROS-2013-dec-22-016_zps8b45616e.jpg

Taxiing to the gate, I see something particular in one of the hangars:

Shutting down. I'm in a hurry, I have to see:

ROS-2013-dec-24-018_zpsfa85e7a9.jpg

Yes! It's a Regia Aeronautica BF190. I have to jump over it. Some papers to sign and I'm ready for a single traffic pattern:

ROS-2013-dec-24-019_zpsf4d623ea.jpg

She still flies great:

Heading to the sea today, even if weather is not so encouraging at destination.

At the moment, we enjoy the nice weather in Bolzano:

ROS-2013-dec-25-001_zps8d81007e.jpg

The standard departure procedure gives a nice view on the valley:

LEG 17: Lugano, LSZA - Sion, LSGS
Route: OMETO UL615 AOSTA UZ637 BANKO DCT VALOR
Allowed altitude: FL200 to FL220 Inclusive
 
Seventeen, not the magic number! In my house, at 6th floor, the three apartments are numbered 16, 16-bis, 18!  :D 
More, the ISG LOC 25 approach is a scary dive through the mountains with a descent rate of more than 6°.  :faint:

2016-2-3_17-53-55-325.BMP.jpg
 
The takeoff run is short and we are quickly up in the air, with a remarkable climb rate of 3000 ft/min!

Allowed altitude: FL190 to FL230 Inclusive

Notes: AFTER VANAS ODD LEVELS BETWEEN FL210 AND FL230 INCLUSIVE

 

Sunday morning in Sion, we are ready for an early departure to get finally back to Italy:

 

2016-2-7_8-42-23-394.BMP.jpg

 

Weather is cold, but no rain nor snow today:

 

2016-2-7_8-48-17-102.BMP.jpg

 

As for the landing procedure, even the SID requires a scary ride through high mountains:

During the standard approach procedure, we overfly Turin. This was the Capital in 1861, as Italy was just born:

 

2016-2-7_9-26-37-818.BMP.jpg

 

Turning right to the IAF:

 

2016-2-7_9-28-16-888.BMP.jpg

 

Visibility turns to about nothing as we establish on ILS 21:

 

2016-2-7_9-34-10-307.BMP.jpg

 

At minimums we have the runway. AP off and cleared to land:

 

2016-2-7_9-38-2-813.BMP.jpg

 

Poor Dizzie:

 

2016-2-7_9-40-23-958.BMP.jpg

 

At the gate! I'm working on this airport with ADE, reworked parkings, taxiways and buildings to reflect the actual airport layout. It's coming along nicely.

Gorgeous last few legs. The Malibu and Duke were lovely legs. I have the MalibuTurbo, not the Duke. Glad you are enjoying the Metroliner. You showed it very very nicely.

Crossing the pond today, with a nice trip to Sardinia Island. It's a bit rainy in Florence, but we enjoyed a great stay here:

Ever seen an airport with a big hill just beyond the runway?

Climbing FL190:

Flying into the sun,I'll better wear my sunglasses and put that shade down:

LEG 21: Olbia Costa Smeralda, LIEO - Foligno, LIAF

Route: BATOX L5 VALMA L865 GITOD/N0220F145 VFR

Allowed altitude:FL100 to FL180 Inclusive

Notes: file a Y flightplan

 

A nice leg today, with a flight that will start IFR and will end VFR.

Weather is nice at destination and we should have no surprises. We are only a bit worried by the strong winds.

 

Engine 2 started:

 

2016-2-10_18-38-40-288.BMP.jpg

 

Taking off against a strong 25 kts headwind:

Climbing through the SID to BATOX:

 

2016-2-10_20-0-17-34.BMP.jpg

 

Cruising at FL180 inbound TAQ VOR, we have a nasty 89 kts crosswind:

 

2016-2-10_20-18-49-946.BMP.jpg

 

2016-2-10_20-17-41-871.BMP.jpg

 

Descending to 14.500' VFR flight level, we have Bolsena Lake below. So many holidays spent there!

 

2016-2-10_20-26-30-479.BMP.jpg

 

Winds are calm in Foligno, joining a left traffic pattern:

Turning to final:

This was an important military airfield during WWII, now it's mainly used by gliders.

Forgot to mention that LIAF is not a default FSX airport, so I had to design it myself from scratch. Not an hard task, anyway. I've managed to precisely put the main elements on the airfield, updated to the last AIP charts. With some spare time I'll add more clutter to this nice little airport.

I really enjoyed this one, love the mixed flightplan.

LEG 22: Foligno, LIAF - Napoli Capodichino, LIRN
Route: DCT GITOD/N0250F170 IFR Y106 TIBER L995 AKAMO
Allowed altitude:FL115 to FL175 Inclusive
Notes: FILE A Z FLIGHT PLAN /// AT GITOD ANY ODD LEVEL FROM FL110 TO FL190 INCLUSIVE

 

A zulu flightplan, first VFR then IFR, to get back home.

Time for another aircraft change. Looks like the issue I have with this aircrat (engine quitting when a tank goes dry) does not happen when using models fitted with auxiliary tanks.

So, it's time to go.

Starting left engine:

Leaving Foligno, then heading south-west VFR, climbing FL115:

Over GITOD, turning left enroute IFR and climbing FL150:

Some snaps at cruising altitude. Loving this model:

We descend 7.000' following AKAMO 1A STAR, and soon we are established on the long localizer run to Naples, with Mount Vesuvius on our left:

On ground, not one of my best landings so far, I have to get familiar again with this aircraft:

Closing the office. I'll call a taxi to spend some time home with my family. Baba cake anyone?
