The Alpine Odyssey is an inspiring 1000 mile route through the heart of the Alps for chilled glider pilots and keen beginners. It starts on the Southern coast of France and ends in the lowlands of Eastern Austria - you will ascend to to tens of thousands of feet using ridge lift alone!

The Alpine Odyssey is divided into 10 stages that you can tackle one day at a time, each stage takes between 1 and 1.5 hours to complete.

If you have never flown a glider before, you can acquire the basic skills with the included practice flights and learn as you go on this gliding adventure. If you can get through the first stage you will make it to the end!

Do I understand correctly that all tasks are flown with the same weather and wind direction?



4 month(s) ago / Thanked by Floyd

Floyd, you are a genius, i usually fly the big jets, and this had made me a glider inthusiast, what a lovely way to enjoy MSFS2020. Please please do more. i love you Floyd. i just visited Gloucester with my familiy and enjoyed the loverly views close to Bristol and Gloucester gliding club, watched the real gliders soaring around, just done the same route, and it was amazing. you have changed my whole view on gliding with your Alpine Odysee. I thank you from my heart xxx

You made me wanna become a gilder pilot!

I have absolutely no idea of gliders so far, only coming from GAs and a bit bushflying... which glider do you suggest to start with and to maybe also make this trip, as beginner-friendly as can be?

Any chance of updating this to SU9, please 😊

Is this supposed to be used with the API thermals from Kinetic Assistant?

Finished Leg 10. Leg 9 was a bit of a challenge but so worth it. Nice trip, beautiful scenery, absolutely loved it. Thanks Floyd, it was great! See some more pictures, I have a few more to load.

Floyd likes to give us Rainbows. I like Rainbows, see picture!

Just finished Leg 3. I had a big grin on my face when I saw where LFHU was after going to near the bottom of the adjacent valley looking for the airport then having to climb back out and find it! Nice to have a little curved ball like that thrown in, or was it my lack of planning? Loving it so far, taken far too long on each leg sightseeing.

I'm so glad to see that the 100 milestone has been passed! I first flew this route on the Discus 2b when it first came out a year ago since MSFS first made it possible for a complete flight in reasonable DEM data. The Alps have such interesting scenery.

Very nice, thank you.

Wonderful! 10 out of 10 😊 Thank you very much! Hope you make more of these Soaring Plans!
