Level of altitude in Flightsimulator X?
« on: 13.12.06, 17:33 »

Hi folks

I'm new to this forum. Hope everybody's having a nice time. In christmas spirit? Well, I was wondering.
How high thmbup can I go in Flightsim X ?
E.G. an ordinary aircraft can't get into space for obvious reasons. Why I ask, is because I saw this: http://www.captainsim.com/products/s001/

Actually an aircraft CAN go into space...with a little help of our friend - the Slew  Grin

Altitude in Flightsimulator X?

Hi again folks.

Well, I've answered my own question.

I got the Flight Simulator X deluxe version, so I slew'd my aircraft. Suddenly I found myself in space.
My reaction when I passed the 100.000 ft mark was, WOOOOOW

So I took some pictures for you to see. I'm calling the collection: Cessna In Space  Cheesy

Aircraft: Cessna C172SP Skyhawk
Place: Over Roskilde Airport, Denmark
Altitude: 1.320.000 ft. (exactly the same altitude as The International Space Station)

You can see the following countries:

1. Norway, Sweden and Finland


2. Italy, Spain and Great Britain


3. Great Britain


4. Denmark


ENJOY, and have a merry x-mas and a happy new year. Christmas smiley

Hmmm... now try setting the TAS to orbital velocity. If the atmospheric model and physics model are both right that far out, it should work. Somehow I doubt it though... Smiley
