Mysteriously my FTX Central installer is now working Very Happy Very Happy

So now my question is .... what are the basic packs needed for flying in the Pacific Northwest, BC and Alaska.

My understanding is that the FTX Global BASE Pack ; FTX Global openLC North America & FTX Global VECTOR are needed for any other packs. Is this all I would need?

Would I get any extra benefit by having NA Pacific Northwest ?

Am I correct in thinking that the Global BASE Pack & Global VECTOR would improve all the rest of the world scenery (ie NZ ).


Thanks Very Happy

Good Morning Pete.
To answer your questions.-- IMO your 'understanding' is correct, about Vector etc.
As for NA Pacific Northwest, I believe you would get extra benefits from it , it is great scenery.
IMO your 'Thinking' about Global etc is right, it does improve World Scenery. I think It is well worth the 'moola"
Just my opinions ! Cheers. Carm.

Pete, let us say, you prefer flying in the PNW and NZ most of the time, I would rather go for the specific regions that cover this area. They are called full fat regions and they include everything including mesh.You don't need anything else. Only if you want to venture into other areas not covered by other full fat regions, would it make sense to buy Global and Vector
