We are a group of dedicated FSX Flight Sim Pilots looking for challenging flying conditions and airports. Flying in Alaska and British Columbia in real weather conditions is where you will almost always find us. The combination of extraordinarily beautiful scenery and difficult flying conditions create a flying experience unlike any other. We especially enjoy ILS approaches with extremely low visibility through mountain passes. A few airports have snow and ice even in the summer months!

When not flying our team has produced our own highly custom textures for aircraft unlike any you have seen before. We now have fourteen free download airport scenery packages containing over 1000 airports. Most of these airports are original with unique characteristics making the approaches challenging and fun at the same time. We have also developed our own highly customized and personalized panels and gauges that are perfect for ILS and non-precision approaches.

We fly almost every night, and can be found on the FSopen Server Board under the names of “"Tougher in Alaska", "Tougher in Alaska 2" Tougher In Alaska 3"”. Coos Bay has no ATC in the sessions as we use Unicom to broadcast our intentions in the clear. Teamspeak3 is also available with quick access on the left of this page, so come on in and get to know our group. We hope that we may have the opportunity to share our experience, and knowledge to make your flying experience a fun and happy one.

Be sure to download our Airport Scenery Packs. We use them in our sessions and will make your flight time with us much more enjoyable.

Hope to see you in the sessions soon…

Thanks and Happy Flying
