I have slope soared almost every plane in the menu on the Sierra Nevada Cliff. It is so fun. And amazing. You can kill the engine before you launch this way: reload the plane with the retracts up. When it reloads, the engine is instantly killed and there has been no forward movement. Now, pop the landing gear down. The aircraft will roll down hill and take off and you are slope soaring!
