Microsoft Flight Simulator: Bush Trips: Everything You Need to Know

In this video, Ben goes over some frequently asked questions regarding the Bush Trips in the new Microsoft Flight Simulator(MSFS) and describes tips he found for the Breckenridge to Mariposa-Yosemite bush trip.

Is your progress saved if you land/exit the trip?  Yes.

Can you land at an airport other than those included in the trip? Yes.

Do you have to follow the nav log perfectly? No. You can fly a direct route to your next destination.

Do you run out of fuel / how do you refuel? Yes you will run out of fuel. Currently you need to bind a hotkey to Repair + Refuel

Can you refly a leg without resetting progress? Yes.

Can you fly singular legs to get the Goldrush/Anemoi/Fire and Ice achievements without restarting? No. You have to do the entire trip without assists.

Tips and tricks:

  • Watch your fuel 
  • Fly how you want
  • Use a sectional chart and/or Bing maps
  • Not all airports are on VFR sectionals
  • Enjoy it!
