With thanks to Trucker17 and msFlights.net, AVSIM is pleased to announce the official details for the 2nd Annual Tom Allensworth Memorial Flight.
Who: All who wish to attend.
What: A gathering of friends from around the world to honor Tom Allensworth -- the founder of AVSIM -- who loved the community very much. Knowing Tom, and his selfless nature, he wouldn't want us to grieve or be sad that he isn't here with us, but rather, he would want us to do something in his name that brings joy to us for many years to come. What better way than flying that brings us all together in his memory. The AVSIM Staff and Allensworth family thank Trucker17 for starting this tradition.
Server: SimLink - Details on how to connect can be found by clicking here. We will be using SimLink software so that all platforms of FSX can fly together (i.e. Classic, P3D, Steam).
Departing: April 9th @ 7pm UTC (3:00 PM EDT)
Flight Plan: KAVL>KTRI>KROA>KCHO (*PLN file available here)
Communications: We will be using a dedicated room on msFlights.net TeamSpeak server. Server address: ts3.msflights.net. In the interest of cross-community relations we would recommend placing your main community in your Name (eg. [MSF]Novawing24, [AVSIM]trucker17).
- General Aviation
- WWII era fighters and bombers
- Any aircraft that can safely take off and land at these airports
- Additionally there was a discussion around a repaint tribute to the work Tom did in the Navy, so a repaint of the default Super King Air 350 has been created and released and is available on the AVSIM library. (Thanks to Tristan "Novawing24" Ayton)
Memorial Video: A memorial video will be produced using the screenshots and videos taken by community members. We will then provide this memorial video to the Allensworth family and share with the community our gathering. We appreciate any media you can provide for this effort. Links to videos (i.e. YouTube) or screenshots can be shared directly in this thread to keep it all in one place.
Flyby's and precision flights are welcome.
If you need to set your system up with the systems we will be using before the flight - please set it up and test it before the flight. We want everyone to have an enjoyable flight.
