The Festival of FlightGear Spring 2019

Postby legoboyvdlp » Thu Nov 08, 2018 9:07 pm

Hi,

It seems that last week's Festival event didn't really succeed all that well, OPRF had a major event at the same time (which was by far our best ever event) which kind of detracted from the main event, since none of us were available to fly into Oslo. Unfortunately traffic levels were very low.

I think one of the main problems was that this event was not much coordination between the different platforms / forums. In fact, I'm sure very few users here were even aware of said event? That being said, hopefully by a little more advance notification the festival next spring (and fall) can be a bit more successful.

Location - are there any suggestions for location? Please go ahead and submit any :) The precedent is that the Spring candidate should be outside Europe while the Fall candidate should be within Europe. However, if a majority desire it, this can be reversed.

So far suggestions at either forum includes:
- Venezuela / Colombia: Andean airports
- California
- Korea
- Central Russia
- Tierra de Fuego: Southern Andes
- New Zealand
- Central America
- Carribbean Islands

It's not really finalized yet - but as far as I can see two polls will occur, one here and one over there with equal weighting, therefore allowing for a fair selection of candidates.

I think the poll should occur at the beginning of December to allow five months for scenery development if that's ok with everyone?

Date: 4th and 5th of May 2019 - it has been habitually the first weekend of May and the first weekend of November - are those dates ok with everyone?

As well as the Northern Andean airports suggestion, what about returning to our roots and visting California again (San Fransisco area in particular)? :)

Merida Alberto Carnevalli please... But someone should build airport layout, in FG is only basic runway and taxiway.

Yes, we will have six months to develop scenery.

On Monday I remembered that we had a fall festival. So I think your statement there is correct. This is totally unrelated and unproductive, but I think there should be more communication on this forum so people know about it or remember it is a thing.

Mimimo suggests Korea, singapore or Central Russia.
Pinto suggests New Zealand, Central America, or Tierra de Fuego

Edit: Singapore was done in May 2017

Saba ? For helicopters ? But Sint Maarten is perfect choice. My favourite airport.

I though maybe Saba would be nice for a DHC6 trip (the aircraft used IRL).

Any objections to starting the polls this week? I think there are plenty of candidates so far...

It would seem that at least three people are willing to participate as ATC based on a poll at discord which will hopefully be sufficient.

SHM suggests East Australia.

I'll open the poll if there are no more suggestions on the 19th.
