LFKR to LFLJ Soaring Task
Saint Remy De Maurienne to Courchevel

With recent developements in both MSFS and the soaring community at large, as well as enthusiastic third party developers, it is now nearly possible to create a soaring task within MSFS. This is my humble attemt at doing so with the current technology known at this moment in time.

I have to thank first of all f99mlu creator of BushMissionGen for his help in assisting me with getting some specific coding to allow some very unique features with the Bush Gen app. There are lots of cool features I was able to add, such as TTS (text to voice) alerts and hints as you fly through way points and other areas. There is also an altitude limit to level the flying field for all pilots so no one has an unfair advantage. You will be warned if you exceed this limit, and disqualified if you continue. How? try it and find out :)

So this is not your typical bush mission, but if you simly want to try soaring in MSFS, you can just load the st-remy-courchevel folder in your community folder and fly. (you will need to download the glider and a winch app) Please see the links below. In this case you'll be limited to the default moving map, but if you click the ISOline slider on the map you can have a basic Topo map to see the major mountains. I would encourge anyone using the stock MSFS Bush mission in the sim for flying this task to disregard the warning that you won't get Brownie points for using the back on course button, this is realy pretty neccessary to complete the mission, it will locate your sailplane on the map for a few seconds and give you a vector to the next POI or as we say, Waypoint. This will give you a good chance at success.

For those who want a more authentic soaring experience, and who have done this kind of thing before, I have taylored this around the use of Little Nav Map a flight planning utility which is very popular. It will provide an authentic and highly detailed moving map, and with the included plan file can be loaded parralell to the sim on the same or separate monitor or device. Now you will have a good way of tracking your progress with VFR landmarks to supplement the sim.


You will need the Touching Cloud DG808s and Kinetic assistant to fly this task available at: https://msfs.touching.cloud/

The task is not too difficult for experienced flyers, and takes from 25-35 minutes to complete. I completed the task with much less wind in trials, but it was a challenge, I wanted this to be doable by anyone, so I set the wind at 19 knots. a bit less than the last task, just trying to see what makes it workable for most pilots. The end, landing at Courchevel is a challenge initself, while not an "official" landing challenge, see if you can skillfully land the DG and stop on the apron at the top.


All the instructions you need are in included PDF file, and the mission start up, Read the mission notes and wait at the start (after you press the fly button) for a voice message that will get you set to go. Hope you all enjoy it. I'm RHB on the discord soaring club server, and soarscale on MSFS forums if you have any ideas or questions. A copy of the map is included fo those without LNV

    This was a really nice task, and rather easy except for the landing.
    With the X-wind the approach was under 30 degrees angle but still managed it.

    Ca, c'était une bonne idée de faire un défi en planeur +1

    I can do practise winch launches ok but when I try to launch in the task the winch starts ok but then keeps dying on me so not able to reach any sort of height ???

      The winch is tricky, best results I found was to use one degree of positive flaps (down) to get the sailplane to climb. or try two. sometimes the winch will slow down for a while then pick up speed. to save your time just practice without starting the mission.
