*** EVENT CANCELED DUE TO LACK OF PARTICIPANT RESPONSE ***

updated Thursday, July 8th, 2010 @ 0700 UTC

Hello, friends and fans...

It is with great regret that I must announce that I am cancelling TGA12 and future TransGear Airways events due to a lack of continued participant interest. I have had a fantastic time organizing these events for almost a year. Believe me, eleven great events is about ten more than I ever expected us to be able to hold, and I have nothing but fond memories of everything that has happened here. Thanks to all of the previous participants for making these events what they were -- exciting, fun, friendly, enjoyable learning experiences for all involved, myself included.

How long the website remains active will pretty much be up to Bob Faulkner ("yourgod") who has graciously provided hosting services free of charge for the ten months the website has existed. My special thanks go to him for that service.

I truly appreciate the friendships I have developed with those who have supported these events. While these gatherings may be no more, I hope that the bonds that have formed during this past year will endure. I invite any and all of you to keep in touch.

Sincerest thanks to all who read this,
-R. (MD-Terp)



Hello friends!

I am safely back from a fantastic trip to Orlando, Florida with the family, and although I still have a million and a half things to catch up on, it's already past due time to start figuring out pilot assignments for this month's TransGear Airways event! I've already been working with the controller staff to start getting set up, but now that I'm back in the Captain's Chair at TransGear Central Command (lol!) I'm ready to start taking pilot assignment requests.

If you've never flown with us before, the requirements are pretty basic -- if you can take off and land, and do a reasonably decent job at holding altitudes, headings, and airspeeds, you have all the skills needed for the event. A working installation of FGCom is the only other requirement, but even if you're completely new to aviation communication you are more than welcome to join us and learn. There are lots of resources available to help you get going (including a nearly word-for-word phrasebook you can read from if you need to), but it's perfectly acceptable to "learn on the fly" as they say.

Route assignments are first-come, first-served -- consult the list above to see what's available, and then post a response here on the forum or e-mail me to reserve your route. You are encouraged to reserve the entire three-leg trip if your time commitment permits, but are welcome to take individual legs if you desire to participate for a shorter duration.

Much information is available at the organization's website -- but feel free, If you have any questions, to post them here on the forum or e-mail me.

Happy flying!

Hey MD-Terp.

I have a question. When you say a reasonably decent job at holding altitudes, headings, and airspeeds, do we manually fly without the autopilot? I think I have rest of the skills down. I've been practicing a lot on my landings, take off, and maintaining altitude manually as much as flying via Autopilot so I'd love to join. :D But that last question lingers for me. :)

Use the autopilot if you know how, by all means, please :)

I'm kinda going to be at a summer camp-like thing, so I wont' be part of it this time. Next month I should be able to participate, though. I'll see you peoples then, though I may be in a plane that's not the 787 (because it might have a cockpit that isn't useable in flight).

Sadly, I probably won't be able to make this one, but I'm almost certain that I'll be able to come along to TGA 13!

Hi Rob,

I'm very sorry to hear you've not managed to find a sufficient number of participants for TGA #12, and feel you don't want to continue running them.

Can I ask that you reconsider, and instead postpone the event? Previous TGAs have been very well attended, and I suspect that the only reason this was hasn't had more people signing up is a combination of the time of year (many people are on vacation) and the relatively short notice.

That's really too bad. :(

TGA was/is a shining light in flightgear and really helped introduce many people to more realistic flying, planning, and atc interaction...and helped generate much interest in more realistic multiplayer scenarios. I do hope it will find a way to continue as it will be missed by many.
