I always love to try out new missions when using a flight simulator and this mission seemed to be right up my alley! Oregon Ablaze put you in the position whereby you had to get out there and help the good people of Oregon deal with the fires that break out from time to time.

Preview screenshot

With fires to the East you need to set out like the hero you are and dispose of them, keeping the good people of Oregon safe once again from the hazards of a fire. This is a truly interesting mission, and one I really would recommend to anyone to try.

The whole package is designed to ensure that you can get the details that you require before the mission starts, which is a nice touch. Lots of mission packs send you out into the mission and don’t give you a clear enough detail; this, however, is clear as day.

Now, you can just enjoy the mission instead of always worrying how you are going to get back in the first place! The entire plan of what you are dealing with in this mission, though, is to fly around from the northern short of the Agate Reservoir to deliver the help that people need. You’ll be heading to and from flash points handling the damage, and I have to say that it’s impeccably done.

The author, Phil Stokes, put a huge amount of time and effort into creating fun missions that ensure you will have more fun getting used to the flight format than ever before. Instead of just A to B journeys this requires you to get involved and work with the other groups to make sure you can get the fire dealt with.

All you need to do is fly over to the Command Post and get your next objective, so that you can then keep on moving with the mission. It can be hard enough to stop flames but when you aren’t working as a team it’s nearly impossible! However, I loved this entire approach of the system as I made it easier than ever to enjoy yourself and just have some fun as you fly. Around the globe.

The entire project that you work with has been built around realism, and I would admit that this even surprised me at how detailed it was – an absolute must for fans of fire rescue and for anyone who wants a new mission style to play that is challenging and unique yet incredibly fun.

I'm at the location the photo of the map tells me to be at but I don't see the command post at all. Can someone help me?

GireFri, 07 Feb 2014 22:14:16 GMT

How do you re-fill the tank and pour the water over the fire? Which are the controls assigned for that? I really wanna do this mission!

skiropeMon, 25 Nov 2013 15:04:32 GMT

OMG this is old but i am the same as trades82, everything works right, just no clue what to do!

Matt GeorgiadisSat, 10 Nov 2012 07:11:16 GMT

The mission looks great, I have fixed the building crash glitch but I can't complete the misson because I can't find the fire boss who's supposedly getting onto the aircraft. Where abouts do we have to get him from & is there something we have to do before we can pick him up?

billhSun, 24 Jul 2011 13:29:44 GMT
Thank you very much for this mission. I have flown it several times, works great. Thanks!!
dustin3888Sun, 24 Apr 2011 00:21:36 GMT

jbealeThu, 17 Mar 2011 19:23:07 GMT
this is a very fun mission that is very challenging and it comes with a nice heli that is fun to fly in free flight. I give it a 8 because when you go back to the command center it doesnt do any.thing
BOELMANWed, 09 Feb 2011 08:03:05 GMT

How do I download it correctly?
benbasolThu, 03 Dec 2009 07:15:14 GMT
Great mission. simple and fun. no long distance travel that just wastes time.
rafiquetennis2Fri, 26 Jun 2009 03:23:56 GMT
If somebody is having trouble getting game started because it shows "building Crash" as soon as it loads, you can fix it by doing following: open the missions, emergency and oregonblaze folder. Copy and paste the "OregonAblaze.flt" file to another folder like desktop. Open the file using wordpad or notepad. Locate "simvars.0" attribute, it is towards the end of the file. Now you have to change the last part of the value of both latitute and longtitute by very minute value. I changed them both by only .1 So if value shows 44.45, just change it to 44.35. Do this for both longtitute and latitude. You are basically just moving the initial placement of the helicopter by a very small amount. Now save the file. Delete the original file in oregonAblaze folder and replace it with the one you just update. Close and restart the simulator and hopefully it will fly. It is virtually impossible to put out the fire IMO. I tried to do it for an hour by couldn't. Good luck

Good Work. Well thought out and fun to play.
thesarge008Mon, 14 Apr 2008 14:18:28 GMT
Looks good but when I load it up it says building crash It puts me half way in the building when it loads. If anyone has any ideas to fix I would appreciate it
eamonngilmoreSun, 24 Feb 2008 12:04:42 GMT
very Good simulation works best in Flight simm 2004
opietTue, 14 Aug 2007 04:04:18 GMT
it wont load the chopper for me
MschumiSat, 14 Jul 2007 23:59:45 GMT
Nice Chopper, the water tank re-fill etc works well. My only problem is when I landed at the Command Post it wouldn't do anything, so I took of to fight the fires it told me I still needed to land there but hey. Yeh I would've just downloaded this for the aircraft.
eatmeTue, 05 Jun 2007 21:41:08 GMT
