Hello captains,I've been having the NGX for a long time now. I've flown to pretty much every city in Europe (the bigger cities), but also smaller airports. So I got to the US, flown to big cities like LA, SF, NY, Boston, Las Vegas, San Diego, Seattle, Boston, Miami, Denver. So I'm now out of ideas again. How do you guys pick the destination to fly to? I just pick a city I know for example. Isn't there some kind of map somewhere on the net, with all the airports on it, so I can pick one?
Please donate today!

Here is a pretty complete list of all the airports in the US. You can navigate and find all the airports in the world. Right now, I'm on a tour of all military airbases, just for fun.http://www.aircraft-charter-world.com/airports/northamerica/usa.htm

i agree with you, but fly with me on `vatsim! EBBR- EGKK, KJFK-EGKK, EGCC-EGKK, there's ton's of controllers on the UK, you have to try, by the bay, yes payware scenery is so different then the default one, now that i have my new machine, in two month i'll forget how'r the defaults looks like.
Come and fly with me on IVAO. LLBG- LEAL LEDA SCEL SBGR SBSP SEQU MROC MMSD MMPL HAWAI AND FULL ORBXHave tons and tons of sceneries so i only fly from a payware scenery to another: do not remember what a default scenery looks like ! lol

Lately i have been flying around in Alaska beautiful country try do a flight from PASI(Sitka) to PAVD(Valdez Pioneer) both have 6000+ feet runways and you won't be dissapointed landing there besides along the flight you will be mostly over water and have mountains on your right side always something to see

Awesome thread! May I suggest South America and Africa?I began South America and it's wonderful. Then i want to do African routes going to places like Accra, Nairobi, Legos, Entebbe and a trip to Madagascar. The African routes, I think, are going to require a bit of research.Another thing i'm wondering is if there are any airports in Antartica. I'd try those out.One of the last ideas I have to share, is when the 777 arrives, maybe I can pretend (or simulate if you prefer) to live the life of a UAE pilot. Maybe do intra middle eastern routes...

Guys, thanks a lot for all your suggestions! I'll give some of them a go.
Awesome! Would be great if you'd post it on the forum, or made it available for download!
I'm compiling a list, on a database, that has all the airports in the world that have a runway of 6000 ft. or greater. It's incredible how many there are. 853 in the US alone.

that's exactly what i was thinking to myself, when the triple 777 (tripple for the american?) arrives, it'll be so fun to do a long haul flight's like Europe (UK(: ) to US.

I think CYLW Kelowna, British Columbia Canada is a challenging destination with beautiful scenery. I drive past it in an 18 wheeler a couple of times a week and watch the WestJet guys coming & going. I've tried it a couple of times in FSX, fun to say the least :)
Always welcome up in Canada. WestJet has an extensive network up here. Lots of nice places to fly into!

I've been flying SAS routes. They have a nice assortment and a lot of great addon airport scenery from simmarket and aerosoft for their destinations. My favorite is SAS4653 ENVA-LEAL or SAS1845 ESSA-LMML and so many short hops, ESSA-ENVA-ENGM-ENBR-etc

Lots of interesting flights in Norway imo, for example ENBR-ENVA :) There's a really good freeware version of ENBR (ENBR Beta 17) on flightsim.no and a decent version of ENVA (Airports of Norway 3.1) along with a quality mesh (Norway Quality Mesh) and landclass (Norway Scenic X II).

Buy Airhauler as an add-on.It will give you random destinations to fly and it will give you a reason to fly.Your flights will give you rank, money to expand your company and also if you fly in career mode it will give you the satisfaction of growing your mtow with your flight (i take i believe only 100 flights in lighter craft before you can fly the ngx)I have my ngx as one of my planes in airhauler and since then i have never been in need of a destination.Airhauler will generate the flights randomly from the fs database.
