X1SOFTWARE announced an add-on for FSX. “…….. Alaska AdventuresÂ – this is the name of the add-on for FSX which is currently under developement and planned for release in July 2008.

“….. InÂ bonus missions, you will fly the Grumman Goose. Two of the missionsÂ require the DC-3 on skis built by Jon Murchison and James Eden. Flight conditions vary widely as do levels of challenge. You will fly in daylight and darkness and a variety of weather conditions in both winter and summer. These adventures are built primarily around the DC-3, but you will also fly the DHC-2 and in bonus missions, the Grumman Goose in northern Canada and Alaska. The DC-3, Beaver and the Goose have long been mainstays of exploration, hunting and fishing lodges, and service industries that supply remote and rugged locations in the wilderness. This package adds some additional liveries for the DC-3 and Goose and reduces the total power output for the DHC-2 Beaver. It adds new scenery to many locations in Canada and Alaska, including Skagway, Yakutat, McGrath, Nome and other settings.
There are two missions at a basic level. There is one mission set designedÂ to be flown in sequence that will take you from Anchorage in the south to Tin City in the North. Start with Alaska I and finish with Alaska V. In order to fly Alaska V you must download the AWESUM 4SOME DC-3 set built by James Eden and Jon Murchison. Go to AVSIM, enter the FILE LIBRARY and search for DC-3 in the FSX – Aircraft Repaints section. You may also be able to download the individual all metal DC-3 on skis from Combat.
