Tipella, BC Canada is located in the quiet backwaters of the Pacific Northwest. In the early days over 3000 miners and fortune seekers made their way to Little Tipella Creek on Harrison Lake in search of the elusive, noble metal. In the early 1900's real estate developers speculated on the land itself, but the venture failed and the area was eventually transformed into a logging camp that still operates today. ORBX has  created Tipella CBB7 for those who wish to experience the sense of romance and adventure that makes this area a bush pilots favorite.

 

Tipella CBB7 is a challenging little grass & gravel strip that bush pilots will love. Approaches require skill  and knowledge of the terrain, weather and winds. A successful first attempt is rare and a few go-arounds are more likely than not.

 

ORBX will be releasing CBB7 as a freeware add on for everyone's enjoyment, but this little backwater strip should prove to be a special treat for PNW bush aviation enthusiasts and those who love float planes adventures.

 

Screens from the devs desk.

Enjoy.

 

Welcome to CBB7 Tipella, BC Canada

you can populate from here via the FSX free flight menu or taxi up at the end of your flight. refueling triggers are inside or at the fuel dock

Let me be the first to say "That's what I'm talking about!"   If this is your first work for ORBX I suggest they keep you on their staff!   Amazing looking scenery.

    Gordon, are you from BC?, cause it looks like it.  The grass, weeds, and bush are impressive, but boy do they look good on the water.  If you've spent any time on a lake in BC you know that there are weeds a grass in the water. Impressive.

I'm not from BC, but I spend a fair share of my time in a float tube in the Sierra Nevada high lakes around Mammoth Lakes, CA where I have the privilege of residing. I've had so many incredible views kicking in and out of the grasses and stumps that this aspect of the design was just second nature. Thank you all so much for your incredible support and kind comments.

Cheers
