I've updated the approved list with the links for the Dash-8 and Tri-Star; while looking at the latter I also discovered that was the host site for the 747-400 so I updated that as well.

Those of you flying into KBWI -- as you are well aware, real-life arrival and departure procedures are optional. However, I am prepared with a full set of charts so that I'll be able to work with those of you who choose to use them.

Talk to you all in about 14 hours!
Cheers,
-Rob.

During my prep flight for tomorrow I noticed some of the fixes had bad location. It turns out I have messed up the coordinate conversion for fixes with single-digit minutes :oops:
I hope I have the correct version now - download here. I wouldn't want to see anybody fly into a mountain.

By the way, TGA294 will depart Austin at 13:30 UTC and flight plan contains LEEHY3 arrival with HELPR transition.

Mixed up?! Boy, I'm glad I didn't download it yet. Been busy with finals. Finally, I am free for the Winter Break!

Well, I didn't look to see how the buildings went at KSLC. I'll probably get some screenshots.

Ok, I am going to hit the sack. Hopefully, with 2 alarms by my side, I will wake up early enough to get in a good mood for my ATC position, instead of that cranky feeling I get every time I get up. So, a 2 hour jump start seems okay for me. But this means....I only have 3 hours of sleep left and I am not even at my room yet. AH!

Well, at least my computer is fully charged this time. :D :D :D :mrgreen: :mrgreen: .

If the dash 8 doesnt autostart, simply in cockpit view click the two condition levers to the right of the throttle, it will start from there

I don't know how you manage to run FG on battery, FG drains my battery in about 20 minutes :P

Hi,

I have noticed that the 737-300 I was planning to use is slightly different to the one that is linked on the TGA site.

The main differences are that the wheels touch the ground properly, and it has livery select.

It is hosted here: http://www.mediafire.com/?mnynteruhmb

If the model's "-set" file is named the same, each local player will see the "regular" 737-300.

The event has officially started... but, still, if anyone sees an open flight that they can do and want to jump in "just in time" or even a few minutes late, as long as no one else has claimed that flight in this thread, you may feel free to do so.

All pilots, rememeber:
(1) use the TGAxxx callsigns!
(2) take some screenshots for me!

KBWI tower will be active at somewhere between 1400-1430 UTC. I don't know what time wookierabbit plans to be up and running, but to minimize battery drain, 1430 is a good recommended start time.
Cheers,
-Rob.

Unfortunately, it just happens to be raining at koak, so, I'll have to use fair weather. If someone could let me know whether it's raining at KSLC or not when I arrive, I may be able to switch back to METAR.
Okay, I am now cruising at FL410 at 481 KTAS. I should be in the area in about 2 and a half hours.
