The third part of the Russia Ultimate Series will take you to the southernmost part of Russia with the Black Sea, the Greater Caucasus Mountains and the Caspian Sea. We will visit the most popular resort towns at the coasts, the most scenic parts of the mountains and all the autonomous republics of the traditional mountain people of the North Caucasus. On our route we will also come close to the border to Georgia. As always on my bushtrips you won't just fly from A to B but I will also give much information on the cities, the history of Russia, the characteristics of the landscapes, the infrastructure etc... When this series is finished, the whole route will be more than 50.000-70.000km long, splitted into probably 15-20 parts. So if you are only interested in certain regions, you can skip the parts you dont want to fly, so that everyone get's what he/she wants.
To avoid misunderstandings: This Bushtrip series is about Russia, a country that is currently engaged in a war of aggression with Ukraine that violates international law. The trip takes place on Russia's internationally recognized territory and includes historical facts that depict significant events in Russia's history, but not current events. This content is primarily intended to educate and entertain people, who are interested in geography, history and the post-Soviet hemisphere. The largest country in the world may never have come to terms with its past, resulting in imperialistic efforts, but that is no reason to drag Russia's geographic beauty into it, in my opinion. In the future I'm sure I'll address other post-Soviet countries, but with the war going on in Ukraine, plus the ongoing Azerbaijan-Armenia conflict, I didn't want you to fly over towns and villages that look completely fine in the simulator, but were actually bombed to pieces and I'm pretending nothing happened...
Places you will visit on this Bushtrip among others:
- The Sea of Azov with historic cities like Taganrog and Azov
- The Kuban region with Krasnodar and the Taman peninsula
- The most popular vacation region in Russia at the Black Sea Coast

You will fly in a Cessna C208 Grand Caravan, the perfect aircraft for this route as we have to climb to high altitudes at many points. Welcome aboard!! If you want to change the aircraft you can do it via the developer mode -> Windows -> Aircraft Selector
You will also be able to change the time & weather via the default toolbar according to your liking. Default is Live Weather & 1 hour passing by with each flight
I have also added the TTS for Waypoint info with Copilot voice so it feels like there's someone in the cockpit telling you where to fly to. (only functional with english language)
The trip includes auto-translations for German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian languages.
For the perfect experience I highly recommend some scenery and improvement mods, the more you install, the better the experience:
