Practice thread #8

Recommended Posts

We are repositioning the baton to WAPL in Indonesia. The team consensus is we need the most practice right now in the South Pacific.The first leg will be WAPL to YBAM to touch the Australian continent. After that, continue eastbound and try to keep the legs at 2hrs or only slightly over. The goal here is to find a route accross the South Pacific without using any of our wildcard (more than 2 hour) leg(s). If we are going to take penalties (every minute over 2 hours is a 3 minute penalty), we need to minimize them.Baton free at WAPL.Good luck on this navigation challenge!

No idea. But it seems to run correctly anyways. I just make a note of the time and hold myself to the 2 hr limit.

Just thought I should warn you, I just installed the Vista Australis scenery package, and the runway of YBAM floats in the air and has got a couple of trees in the middle of it. I'm not sure how it looks with the default FS scenery, but my guess is that you are alright if you're using the default...edit: to answer your question, it's forum time.

default scenery is nice and flat, runway on the ground where you'd expect it.No lights though.
