Adventure Mississippi River

Nordheim Missions


5/5 (2)

A journey along the Mississippi is a journey through the history, culture and nature of North America. It begins at Lake Itasca in northern Minnesota, where the river arises from the lake as a small stream. From there, the river flows southwards through ten US states, passing through cities such as Minneapolis, St Louis, Memphis and New Orleans. Along the way, you can admire a diverse landscape of forests, prairies, floodplain forests and marshes. The river is also home to a variety of wildlife, including beavers, otters, bald eagles, pelicans and alligators.

The Mississippi is not only a natural river but also a culturally significant one. It was an important trade route for Native Americans and later for European explorers and settlers. It has inspired writers like Mark Twain, musicians such as Louis Armstrong and artists including George Caleb Bingham. It was also the site of historic events such as the War of Secession, the Civil Rights Movement and Hurricane Katrina.

The journey ends at the mouth of the river in the Gulf of Mexico, where the Mississippi Delta is located. The Delta is a region formed by sediments deposited by the river over thousands of years. It is an important ecosystem for fish, birds and plants, but also for the people who live and work there.

A journey along the Mississippi is a journey rich in beauty, diversity and challenge. It is a journey that offers a glimpse into the heart and soul of America.

You can fly the bush trip in either the DR 400/100 Cadet, Cessna 172 Skyhawk or Robin Cap-10. Each of the 16 stages lasts approximately one hour. You can adjust the pre-set live weather to your needs during the flight, as well as most of the assistance options.

This pack also includes two Landing Challenges and two Discovery Flights. Complete a routine mission in the F/A 18E Super Hornet at the military base near New Orleans. The second landing challenge is in the DHC-2 Beaver at St Paul. Discovery flights take you to Memphis in an XCub and to Saint Louis on the Mississippi in the Spirit of St Louis.
