Most beautiful places for the Bell 47

Hi friends, please some recommendation of those most beautiful places to enjoy fantastic views through the glass dome of the wonderful Bell 47 ???.

Thank you so much.


Maybe try out the Grand Canyon, but be careful when you cross the rim, as the sudden drop off beneath you can be a bit of a stomach churner. :slight_smile:

If you, like me, likes to hunt places in urban landscapes, you will love to fly around North L. A., from Burbank’s Bob Hope airport. Heading south, you can fly over Universal Studios, then the Hollywood Bow, Dolby and the Chinese Theaters, even the Sunset’s Guitar Center store. Around there you can see the Hollywwod Sign and the Griffith Observatory. I’ve been over LACMA, The Grove, The Westing Bonaventure in Downtown, the Air and Space museum at Figueroa Street, Santa Monica Pier, etc. The Los Angeles scenery addon is better, but Asobo´s original database is good enough.


Downtown Chicago is very interesting as well, and, of course, Manhattan. I didn’t try yet nature places, but I presume that the Horseshoe Bend would be a great place to fly.

For pure landscapes try the ORBX Iceland and New Zealand addon meshes. These bring the landscape into a more realistic view.

But basically anywhere in default msfs where there are river valleys for low level, “skids wet and dirty” flying - the Mach Loop in Wales, Cheddar Gorge in England, Moselle Valley in Germany. Basically anywhere where you can fly low and below the horizon.

Just flown over New Orleans. The Aquarium, Casino, French Quarter. Lots of fun.

A sunset flight in the Lake District of the UK is my favourite at the moment. Take off from Cark in Morecambe Bay and head North.

Island hopping in the North Hebrides is stunning at dusk, and the Milford Sound area of New Zealand

I’ll give that a try. Nice to set it down on a hill or mountain overlooking a loch, shut the engines down, watch the sunset and listen to the birds. Try doing that in a 747.

I visited the southern Outer Hebrides, which are absolutely beautiful. In reality, though, there are no trees (still beautiful).

One of my favorites is to start from Imperial Beach KNRS south of San Diego and head north hugging the SoCal coastline beaches and cliffs all the way to Long Beach. Particularly with addons like the latest Global AI Ship Traffic and Los Angeles Helipad pack from The Coronado Peninsula, ship traffic entering and exiting San Diego, Torrey Pines, Del Mar racetrack, Oceanside, Camp Pendleton, San Onofre, San Clemente, Doheny and Dana Point, Laguna, Balboa Peninsula, then landing on the Queen Mary helipad next to where the Spruce Goose used to be housed, all makes for great scenery along the way. Even better on an early morning with some cloud cover.
