Might be able to make it then. The main thing is we get a flight going and people have fun. I would start thinking about voip. Fgcom hasn't been working for me. I would consider mumble or discord. There is already a discord Flightgear server with about 250 people. Maybe some others on there will jump in. There are plenty of voice channels on that server.

That sounds like a plan to me. KB7 lets do that.

Those who are attending should list the plane they are flying if you don't mind. I personally don't like looking at gliders. ;)

@Swamp: May I suggest a first post update with the official write up of the event in order to get all the information quickly and clearly in a single place?

"KB7";p=332982]Just a thought.... The route splits in half at about PAVD. If a group wants to start out at Homer (PAHO) at a given time, then 2 hours later have a start at PAVD, then 2 hours later everyone can land at Yakutat (PAYA). Anyone wanting to boost faster than 120 (say 160ish in a DHC6 does for 3 hours total whole route) can start at a fractionally later time.

The key will be to set an actual date, since we're already in June. How about Sunday, June 24, 18:00 UTC (1 PM Central) for start at PAHO, 20:00 UTC for PAVD starters, event ends around 22:00ish? If I'm coordinating I'll say let's use Mumble for voice comm.


This is the plan. If you are coming please post what plane you will be flying so those that don't have it can get it. Thanks

I'll most likely be in either a DHC-2 or a DC-3.

Sorry, now I'm the one who has had RL intrustions including death of hardware. I'm going to try to know this evening if the 24th still works for me.

The 4 hour track is based on 120 Kts speed (never known if Skyvector figures ground speed or TIA...) We're happy at any speed.

I think I'll probably be doing the detailed Cessna-172 and if my new graphics card and monitor allow it, I'll provide Easy ATC progressively along the route - maybe. That's if I can do it at all.

Also note that if you're not using the FGADDON repository we need to know how to get your aircraft, too... :D

One goes up... one goes down... ;)

Hello gentlemans, I'm planning next leg of the World challengest approaches and don't want to collide with this flight. When in June will be this adventure ?
