NOTAM: At the end of each leg, the weight of the cargo onboard was to be reduced by 25lbs upon full stop. However, due to recent changes introduced in SU8, this functionality is broken and is no longer working. This does not affect the functionality of the mission itself which remains very much flyable.

I have been in touch with Microsoft to find out what happened and will keep you updated. In the meantime, you can adjust the cargo weight in the aircraft by using the Weight and Balance tool in the sim.

===

You've been assigned the task of delivering COVID-19 vaccines to remote villages in the Himalayas to keep the locals safe as the Omicron variant sweeps across the region.

Your flight starts at Hamid Karzai International Airport (OAKB) and will take you over some of the tallest peaks in the world and through beautiful valleys in northern Pakistan and India.

This journey is going to be a challenging one. You'll be flying with a full load in the cargo hold of your Cessna 208B Grand Caravan EX, which means you'll need to give yourself plenty of space to climb after takeoff. Additionally, your last supply drop will be difficult as the landing strip is very hard to see, so be prepared to go missed on final approach. While the flight plan has been designed to help you get to a safe altitude, don't be afraid to deviate from the flight plan and circle in case you need to gain/lose altitude.

Your aircraft is sitting at parking spot 38 and is being refueled. Let's get her up and running and let's get these vaccines delivered to the local villagers.

Installation
1. Download the archive and extract the files.
2. Drag the "mission-OAKB-VI66" folder to your Community folder.
3. That's it!

Necessary Addons
In order for this bush trip to appear in the simulator, you'll need to download the Cessna 208 - Medecins Sans Frontieres / Doctors Without Borders livery by Squidfall and place it in your Community folder.

With 1.0.2 update it is working fine for me. Of course, the livery needs to be in community folder. Maybe it will be an idea for next version to have instructions to change the plane or an alternative download with a aircraft of the standard edition.

Great Trip, nice idea. Thanks for this

Hello,

Thanks for your bushtrip but, like some others, and though I have the livery "Médecins sans frontières" in my community folder, I don't see your trip in the sim.

Thank you for solving...

downloading the recent version, still not visible on the custom content of bush trips on my msfs screen??

You should look into 'The Skypark' add-on for MSFS, they have missions like this. You can probably submit this version to this so that more people can play it maybe.

Indeed, when i select activities, community part of this, the mission addon is not presented ...

Hi sir,

This addon doesn't work with the last msfs version 1.22.2.0; why??

I saw that in the image map that most items are png files; is this OK. After conversion to jpg, still the missionproject can't be seen in the activity custom community map.

  • Version 1.0.2 February 02, 2022

    - Due to a developer-induced naming convention (read: I made a horrible mistake), the bush trip wasn't appearing in the sim. It was, however, appearing in mine. This has now been tested and is verified as fixed. Many thanks to BuffyGC for assistance in troubleshooting.

    Please accept my apologies for the multiple code fixes and emails in the past 24 hours.

  • Version 1.0.1 February 01, 2022

    - Fixed a bug where the bush trip wasn't displaying correctly in the sim. I suspect this has something do with it being compiled for the pre-Australia version of the sim. Thanks to ldbfsxbelgium for pointing out the issue.

    Initial release of this file just launched. Welcome aboard!
