Until It Ends Euro Tour 2017

Postby J Maverick 16 » Sun Dec 24, 2017 3:40 pm

I'm gonna post all the latest confirmed updates on this topic only.

Alright, because of the success obtained by the "Now That We're Masters World Tour 2017" back in July/August, I decided I had to keep this kind of event type going and the first opportunity for me to do it was this Christmas holidays.
So, thanks also to Woosh who helped me a lot with the the planning session, I'm glad to announce the "Until It Ends Euro Tour 2017", a short multi-leg event to celebrate the ending of this year and cheer for 2018 which is right behind the corner. The aim of this tour is to be relatively short (4 days, starting Dec. 26th) and with a reasonable time spent flying considering the holiday season.

Like the previous edition, it is a free-entry event, which means you can fly whatever plane you like as long as it can cruise at the specified altitude and speeds.

The timings are as follow:


TUE 26/12 LIME>EDDL - 19:00z onwards - FL330
WED 27/12 EDDL>EGBB - 19:00z onwards - FL350
THU 28/12 EGBB>LFRB - 19:00z onwards - FL310
FRI 29/12 LFRB>LEBB - 19:00z onwards - FL330


Legs are relatively short and the total event duration shouldn't last more than 2 hrs (considering t/o and landing time of all attenders)
Cruise speed will be around M0.8, specific ones will be provided the day of the leg. All voice comms will happen on a dedicated channel of the new Mumble server: itpns.ddns.net (default port)
The routes have been created already by Woosh and can be downloaded here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/733y2e0eawpf ... 1it5a?dl=0
Please try to get ready at the meeting airport at least 10 minutes beforehand in order to set everything in time.
ATCs are welcomed for landing procedures only.
Also, please be sure you're able to deal with your selected plane (e.g. how to set the AP correctly) in order to avoid delays with the group flight, so if you plan to bring a plane that you never tried before, at least have a ride with it to understand how it flies before the event starts. Thanks for your understanding.

From what I saw a there will be around 10 people joining it, not a great deal compared to last time, but still worth organizing. I like doing it so having some people attending is rewarding.
Post will be constantly updated, so keep an eye on it ;)

NOTAM: Today 29/12 is the last chance to show up!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all the FlightGear community!
Cheers, Mav

PS: If someone was wondering about the title name, I took it from the Metallica song "Until It Sleeps" from the "Load" album, I changed it to "ends" to match a bit the situation referred to the end of the year and this is the result ;).

Less than 5 hours remain till the kick off of the "Until It Ends Euro Tour 2017" from LIME to EDDL.

For this first leg we will fly at FL330 and M0.78 and follow the route available in the download link int the first post for LIME_EDDL.
Note that there are two routes, one for EDDL 05L and one for 05R, according to the weather, you can select whatever route you prefer, as long as we don't land all together at the same time on the same runway.
These are the waypoints we are going to follow (note that SIDs and STARs are not included) in case you want to input them manually:

Code: Select all
PEPAG CANNE KESEX SONOM KOVAN RIDSU ROLIS UMUPU OBOKA OLPEX NEREL LMA


As usual, I will fly the C-32J (my personal plane) so be sure you download it in time for the event ;) https://github.com/JMaverick16/C-32J .
See ya there!

Thanks to all the participants of the first leg, was fun! I counted around 8 people attending which is not bad IMO, thanks to D-SVEN for offering ATC services at Dusseldorf.

Anyway, today we'll fly the second leg (same starting time) from EDDL to EGBB at FL350 and M0.78 and as usual follow the route available in the download link first post.
This time route haven't limitations to 1 runway only, so if weather plays funny jokes there won't be that problem.
Here you've got the waypoints (including SID and STAR) in case you need to input manually:
Code: Select all
MODRU1T DL237 DL238 LMA NETEX
MODRU TORNU EVOSA NIK LUMEN RAPIX UNSAD LAM BPK BUZAD
DTY HON

@merspieler Thanks for them, really nice!

Again thanks to all the attenders! I counted around 9 people at the most busiest moment, thanks to D-SVEN for providing arrival ATC coverage.

Third leg today from EGBB to LFRB at FL310 and M0.78 starting at the usual time following the downloadable routes.
Here you've got the waypoints in case you need to input manually:

Code: Select all
CPT PEPIS SAM KAPEX MARUK LELNA DOMOK BASIK ANLEV


Today I'll leave my C-32J at the maintenance hangar and get the C-32J-20 (it's in the same folder as the C-32J so no need to download anything, just letting you know ;) ).
See ya there!
Cheers, Mav

Thank you V12 and merspieler!

Was much fun yesterday thank you guys! There were around 9/10 people attending, I think we scared off that poor ATC attempting to control us at Brest lol.
Today's the grand finale with the last leg starting 19:00z as always, starting LFRB and arriving at Bilbao (LEBB); cruise will be at FL330 and M0.76, route linked as usual.
These are the waypoints if you have to input manually:

Code: Select all
QPR LIRMA NOVAN PEPET NENEM BAGAS CEGAM


From Woosh:
Code: Select all
WARNING <<<< FOR THOSE WHO LOVE CIV/MIL INTERACTION >>>> WARNING

At South Brest there is a STRICT EXCLUSION military zone :: P112.
Orders in case of airspace violation are :: fire first, talk after ::

RWY 25L SID QPR6F / QPR6X include 2 turns VERY sharps
1 left coming back on the airport
1 right on the south

If you miss the 1st turn you overfly LANVEOC P112 and ...bye bye.

You may instead use RNAV SID RB003 RB005 RB007 which turn over by north.


Image

Again, today I'll be using the C-32J-20.
Last chance for some nice airliner group flying of the year, try not to miss it!

Just neglect them, when they start glorifying violence.

May the peace with you
