More X-Plane gliding: ridge-soaring the ASK 21 over Aoraki/Mount Cook, New Zealand. 😎

12,800 ft on the clock. I'd been another 100 ft or so up at my highest point. This is looking back the way I came, up the ridges on the right.

@Trooper117 I´m planning on getting SC too! Hope its easy for beginners of that gerne of game.

 

Trooper's screenshots are of Elite Dangerous, not SC.

 

More X-Plane mountaineering, this time in the Andes. That's Aconagua in the distance, at 22,837 ft the highest mountain outside Asia.

28 minutes later, I'm at the top. Or rather, 300+ ft above it, in a healthy updraft. Hard to get any higher though, as the area of lift gets smaller as you climb.

I've done Everest too, but I cheated somewhat by starting with a winch launch from Syangboche airstrip, at 12,500 ft.  I'll probably try it again sometime from an airfield I can actually get back to. Not sensible with Syangboche, as I'd be landing downwind on a short runway with a mountain face at the end...

 

Anyone else trying this in X-Plane should remember to turn off hypoxia.

At 50,000ft one surely has slipped the surly bonds of Earth.

She doesn't quite like it up here - I'm in moderate buffet all the time.

Turning base. Quite a nice view this evening.

Base-to-final turn. Dirtied up, she flies like a champ, too!

I guess that qualifies me for the Mach Busters Club!
