RELEASE: //42 Sunset Strip Scene for MSFS on PC & Xbox

Hello Captain,

It's a bit of a bittersweet moment as we wrap things up in Northern California (for now, at least). As our final contribution here, we've gone all out, pouring our passion and soul into crafting an experience that captures the essence of this region. Get ready to chase the sun as you explore the golden skies of this epic destination.

While we bid adieu to Northern California, know that this is just the beginning of our journey. We're excited to spread our wings and take off to a new area, crafting even more remarkable experiences for backcountry enthusiasts around the world. Stay tuned for what's next because the sky's the limit, and we're soaring higher than ever before!

Our scenes are challenging strips with immaculate vibes; whether it feels remote or cozy will depend on each scene. They are also perfect places to play with //42 Campout as they were designed with plenty of plane camping space.

42SS - Sunset Strip

A strip located near Finley Lake, California.

After a day of flying, Sunset Strip is the perfect spot to unwind. Surrounded by scenic valleys and just a short 5nm flight from 42HV High Voltage, it's a sanctuary for STOL aircraft and helicopter enthusiasts.

Pilots who enjoy precision flying will find a challenge here, with landings and departures possible in only one direction. And when the sun sets over the surrounding valleys during your approach, it's a perfect backdrop.

There are no services, restrooms, or electricity. At Sunset Strip, it's all about reconnecting with nature. Enjoy the tranquility of Finley Lake, spot bald eagles, explore the nearby Red Bluff Trails, or grab a meal at the nearby Hungry Bear food truck in a Juice Goose.

This strip is a fantastic place to fly in from other //42 properties, such as Bluffers HillSharktooth RidgeHogsback Ranch, or Mr. Goodbar.
