We'll head out of China Lake Naval Air Warfare Station, California to fly SIDEWINDER and the JEDI transition (AKA "Star Wars Canyon"), the legendary low-level flight training route in California, USA. Used by the USAF, US Navy and allied nations for training in F22's, F18's and many other aircraft as they zip through narrow canyons and over mountain ridges at 200ft AGL and 500 knots.

We'll be flying two passes through the canyon before returning to base. The ideal plane for this is the Aermacchi MB-339A, a venerable jet trainer first developed in 1974 and still used by the Italian Air Force and a number of other nations. The MB-339A can reach up to 400 knots and is highly manoeuvrable, so ideal for this quick jaunt. Developed by IndaFoxtEcho, the 339 can be purchased from the Marketplace or from a number of add on vendors. I'd also suggest getting the fictional US Navy livery available from this site.

If you don't have the payware MB-339A, try the trip in the Daher TBM 930 turboprop instead. The TBM's maximum manoeuvring speed is only 158 knots, but that's still plenty fast enough!

The route is based on published military procedures,

Installation
Just extract the *.PLN file from the zip folder and save it somewhere convienient. You can then load the plan from the World Map screen. Turn on the onscreen waypoint indicators to learn the route, but once you're confident with it you should be able to do it purely VFR!
