Hello All!I was thinking since we've all had a little time to get used to our new toy we ought to have some kind of online gathering of PMDG pilots. Would anyone be interested in for a PMDG flyin/group flight on Vatsim sometime this weekend?-Lee Barberhttp://home.nc.rr.com/uniuniunium/dvasig.jpg

I'm game for it. Let me know when and where and I am there. Let's go to a big airport.

Definitely. How about we do a cross country from say, Seattle to New York or KLAX to Miami. Those 4 airports would be large enough to accomodate the barrage of aircraft.I'm definitely up for it!Goran

I would want either New York (JFK or EWR?) or LAX to be the destination. I say we do KJFK-KLAX: KJFK KENNEDY9 RBV J230 AIR J80 MCI J24 SLN J102 ALS J44 RSK J64 HEC MITTS2 KLAX. Also, do we want to do only cargo flights, or are we allowing the passengers to come with us? :)

I will be flying PANC-KJFK tomorrow (Sunday) with the Cathay Pacific cargo version (CX083). I will start the flight at 1:00 PM mountain (20:00Z). Someone is welcome to join if they want. Flightplan: PANC YESCKA NCA20 YYZ J522 IGN.IGN7 KJFK. To get this better organized we should probably plan on doing it next week. Or we can join United-Virtual/Air Canada Virtual with their "Saturday Scramble." http://www.united-virtual.com/index.php?mo..._position=24:24

I think that would be a good idea...to wait til next week to get figures and have time to organize it. But we need a definite agreeable flight plan. Here are some of my suggestions:PANC-KLAXKSEA-PHNLKJFK-KLASKMIA-KLAXKORD-TBPBThere are a few others I like but I'll leave it there for now.Also, I wouldn't mind if we all do a round the world trip with either the cargo or pax versions. 1 leg each weekend making stops at places of interest or we could duplicate John Travoltas spirit of friendship tour.A round the world trip I made about 3 months ago was as follows:YSSY-YBBNYBBN-WSSSWSSS-VHHHVHHH-PANCPANC-PHNLPHNL-KLAXKLAX-KORDKORD-KJFKKJFK-KMIAKMIA-TBPBTBPB-BIKF (That was a long one)BIKF-EHAMEHAM-LGAVLGAV-VHHHVHHH-YSSYPlease post feedback.RegardsGoran

I would like the 'round the world trip more than a one-time weekend thing. Let's take a vote: Option 1: PANC-KLAX Option 2: KSEA-PHNL Option 3: KJKF-KLAS Option 4: KMIA-KLAX Option 5: KORD-TBPB (what airport is this?). Option 6: Write-in route. Option 7: 'round the world (the route given above). Write you options in preference. My preference: 7, 4, 3, 1, 2, 5. I will voluteer to tally votes.

TBPB is Grantley Adams International located at Barbados in the Bahamas. If you have Islands of the West Indies scenery, it's really something else to see.Goran

If we get the numbers and some keen interest, I'll compile the flight plans for use with squawkbox, fsnav(for those that have it) and fs9 and also in .pdf format, zip them up and either email them to those interested or put them up on a server for download. Failing that, I can email them to someone with web space so they can host the files for download.Let me know so we can get that part out of the way in time for next weekend.We also have to agree on a time to start this, taking into account we all live in different timezones, Friday 2200UTC through to 0200UTC Sunday is a good time for me.Goran

Funny, this thread got almost no attention for the first couple of days it was posted, I guess everyone was out flying :-PSince its Sunday afternoon already, lets put this on hold until next weekend, that way we can probably have some more participants and get a better idea of what routes folks want to fly. I'm currently in the virtual skies over the North Atlantic but I'll try to put up some proposals for routes once I get back on Terra Firma.Cheers!-Lee Barberhttp://home.nc.rr.com/uniuniunium/dvasig.jpg

I'm gonna unpin the thread for now - once someone has a firm plan in place for when this is actually going to happen, let me know via a PM and I'll pin it for everyone to see again...

You know what? I don't think it's going to happen. But, for those that are interested, I'll be parked at Gate 53 at YSSY at 9am Australian EDT in the Virgin Blue 747 and I'll be heading for WSSS on the 1st leg of the round the world trip I'll be doing. If anyone wants to join me, feel free. If you want flight plans, let me know and I'll post them here or email them. I'll be adding a few extra stops on my previous round the world trip. Some remote airports in the atlantic and a few more tropical destinations are on the list. If you do plan on joining me, make sure your 744 is EMPTY of all passengers and cargo. Some runways may be a bit small for a heavy aircraft loaded with passengers and cargo. Don't worry though, I'll make sure there is enough runway by using the charts provided.Hope to see y'all there. Maybe even some of the PMDG development team can come.Goran

I'm starting my round the world trip on vatsim at 745am Australian EDT (2145GMT Friday). If anyone wants to join me, look for the virgin Blue 747 passenger version at YSSY. I'll be going to Hong Kongs Kai Tak airport for this 1st leg. Goran

first leg went without incident. kai tak isn't in the navdata for the 747 but it was easily fixed by making a new flight plan to VHHH and then steering on a heading to VHKG.Sad to say I was the only one flying there. Surprised since there was quite some interest when the thread started. Oh well, not to worry. My next leg will be next saturday flying from Kai Tak to Tokyo and then if I have time, Tokyo to Anchorage on the same day.It'd be nice to have a group flight so I'll be looking for any 747's at Kai Tak.
