BC PNW Whistler. Welcome to Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Included in this scenery enhancement: Whistler-Green Lake Water Aerodrome (CAE5), Whistler (Hospital) Heliport (CAW4) and Whistler (Municipal) Heliport (CBE9). Several custom objects were created for this project. This scenery was designed for Orbx's FTX NA Blue Pacific Northwest (PNW). By Mike Mann.
This scenery will provide you with a float plane base as well as two heliports. The float plane base, which is located on the southwest end of Green Lake, is known as Whistler-Green Lake Water Aerodrome (CAE5) and is the home base for Whistler Air. The Whistler Health Care Centre has a helipad, known as Whistler (Hospital) Heliport (CAW4) which is located right in town. The other helicopter base is Whistler (Municipal) Heliport (CBE9) which is located just east of the northeast end of Green Lake.
I also recommend that you download my BC Coastal Beaver Repaints package (the file is named bccoastalbeavers.zip at both sites). This will give you a number of repaints for the default FSX Beaver, including the one for Whistler Air. This will give you an authentic experience while flying in the Whistler area.
This scenery enhancement was designed to be used with Orbx's FTX NA Blue Pacific Northwest (PNW). To install the scenery-
1. After unzipping the whistlerbases.zip file, copy the BCPNWFloatBases folder into your Addon Scenery folder \\Program Files\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Addon Scenery.
Note: if you have installed any of my other FSX BC PNW sceneries then this folder will already exist, so just add the additional files.
2. Copy the file CAE5_Whistler_Green_Lake_Float_ALT.BGL in the WorldScenery folder into your Scenery\World\Scenery folder \\Program Files\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\Scenery\World\Scenery.
3. Add BCPNWFloatBases through your scenery FSX settings and make sure it is above all the Orbx PNW entries.
Note: if you have installed any of my other FSX BC PNW sceneries then this folder will already be enabled.
4. This scenery was designed for a mesh resolution of 10 m. Set your FSX – Settings – Display – Scenery – Mesh resolution: 10
