Grand Canyon air race

Postby V12 » Thu Oct 17, 2019 6:10 pm


I'm playing with crazy idea - MP airliner race through Grand Canyon from Page (KPGA) to Las Vegas (KLAS). Winner is not pilot with fastest time, but pilot with lowest average altitude on route.

Rules :
3 category - prop / turboprop, jet liners, military planes (attention to fuel consumption)
mandatory usage of blackbox protocol with lon/lat coordinates, speed and MSL altitude (data from property tree position/), I will develop this protocol
minimal speed 150 kts
crash or contact with terrain = disqualify

Who is crazy enough to take part in this race?

Fly high, fly fast - fly Concorde !
