Just happened to land at Molokai at 4am, and caught a 3000xp 'Sugar Mill', just before the runway.
Couldn't find it on the list.
Any one know?

It appears that MS has unlocked all aerocaches of the day. Don't know how long this is supposed to last or even if it's intentional. Never heard any announcements about it.

Avsim Forums (http://forum.avsim.net/topic/374947-two-aerocaches-today/) has a topic discussing all of the aerocaches that people have found that aren't listed in the aerocache menu.

Thanks for posting the location of the sugar mill. I've been looking for that one actually.

OOPS!!
Sorry, it's on Maui, in front of runway 2.

Oh well, I must have it already. Had already checked Kahului's runways for it.

Based on some flights I've conducted over the last couple of days, as far as I can tell, not all past AOTD aerocaches are available - only those listed on the Aerocache page (https://microsoftflight.com/en-us/aerocache/) on the Flight website.

For the Free-To-Play (Big Island) subset, there are six aerocaches listed on the website that are not shown in the game as collectable:

BIG ISLAND COFFEE
HAKALAU BRIDGE
HONOKOHAU MARINA
KOLEKOLE BRIDGE
KONA COAST SHIPPING
POHAKULOA TRAINING AREA

For the Hawaiian Adventure Pack subset, there are 27:

ALA WAI HARBOR
BIG BEACH
HALEAKALA CRATER
HANAUMA BAY
HEEIA PIER
HTS OAHU
KAANAPALI BEACH
KAHULUI HARBOR
KAHUKU ARMY AIRFIELD
KILAUEA LIGHTHOUSE
MAKAI PIER
MAUNA LEI GULCH
MCAF
MIGHTY MO
MOLOKAI VORTAC
MOUNT KALA
NAWILIWILI HARBOR
NUAAILUA BAY
OLOMANA PEAK
PALI HIGHWAY 61
PORT ALLEN MARINA
RED AND WHITE TOWER
SOUTH KAUAI VOR
SUGAR MILL
WAILAU VALLEY
WAIMEA BEACH BRIDGE
WAIMOKU FALLS

Some of these have already appeared as AOTDs, so if you collected them in the past, you will not be able to collect them again.

If you collect them now, and they subsequently show up as an AOTD in the future, they will show up as collected. (This was the case for me with the current ALA WAI HARBOR aerocache)

Other previous AOTD aerocaches that you did not collect on the day are not available, based on my testing.

Hope this helps with your aerocache hunting. Have fun!:)

mmm, Kilauea Lighthouse on Kauai , east of Princeville, does not show up on my Hawaiian pack, as you said, but I just found it flying around, 3000xp, just now.

thanks for the tips.

Good to hear.

FYI, by my calculation, as of today, there are a total of 152 aerocaches that could have been collected since Flight was released:

Free-To-Play:.......................19
Hawaiian-Adventure-Pack....67
AOTDs.................................66
Total..................................152

I should also add that actually, only 151 could have been collected. One of the AOTD aerocaches - Maluaka Beach - had a bug & was unobtainable, so was replaced that day with Maui Wind Enery Project, which carried over to the following day.

Too bad if you find an AotD, it doesn't stay in your list in-game so you know you found it already.

Yes, it would be nice to have the AOTDs added to your in-game list of aerocaches.:)

The following list may be of interest or help to some folks.

It is a list of all the daily aerocaches to-date, based upon ones I have personally collected, plus the names of others gleaned from other forums and help from other users (so this list should be seen as a community effort)



A few caveats and notes on the list to be aware of:

This list has not been corrected to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) time. Depending on where you live, your timezone may obviously be different than mine. So, my "today" may be your "tommorow". Or, to give an example, the aerocache I list for "April 15" would have been seen by you on "April 16".
There was a period roughly between April 17 & May 19 when there were two aerocaches of the day. One had the choice of collecting one, other or both. So, depending on what you chose to do, your aerocache(s) of the day during this period could be significantly different than mine.
There were a couple of days (at least) when there was an AOTD "Glitch", resulting in the bad aerocache geing removed & replaced by a new one.
There was a period when I was not online, so do did not collect the AOTDs, nor have I been able to determine the name. These are therefore listed as "UNKNOWN". If you happen to know the name, please let us all know.
The names shown in parentheses are the names that may well be wrong. If you know the true name, please let us know.

Yo, very nice work you made there FS Tester !!

I permitted myself to relay your post and precious informations to the AvSim Flight forum.

This link to another Flight forum may help too, it contains a kind of listing day by day, with some pictures and tips sometimes :

Thanks, DreadMetis. No problem posting this information elsewhere, as I don't have the time to view or participate in every Flight forum out there, and the more folks this information helps within the Flight community, the better!

FYI, I've also posted a GUID-to-Name list here (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2730411), for those that might be trying to match the preview pictures in the aerocache folder to their names.

The aerocache on Turtle Bay does not show. Anyone has an idea how this can happen? Tried in 2 different days. (via Steam)
