Now that the gang is mostly here.

Recommended Posts

I want to say its great to see you guys again. Despite my intentions I wasn't able to see you guys over the course of the year. I'm sure we've got some interesting stories to tell over the course of the race.That being said. I think it's time to start arranging practices. This race will probably be one of the tightest we've ever seen. Both Flightsim and Sim Outhouse have already begun practices. I know I'm somewhat the new guy here having only participated in the 2006 RTW race. However if no one has any objections I'd like to set up and run a practice session this weekend.What do you guys think?

I think I'll be holding practice either Saturday or Sunday.MetroAir is having a birthday event this Friday that I've been committed too by my boss there ;-) so I'll have to run this around it.I'm thinking of maybe running a relay from say Detroit to Seattle and back, focusing mainly on completing the run with as few errors and penalties as possible, practiceing the forum posting procedures and running the Duenna program. This would be a tremendous opportunity for the new pilots to get to know the procedures and as a nice refresher course for the rest of us as well.If I get enough interest I may split us into two teams and make a little mini race out of it.Thoughts? Still got a week to work this out and I'd like this to be something everyones interested in. I'd also like to hear from some of the more Senior folks. Don't want anyone to think I'm trying to Hijack anything here ;-) Just real anxious to get started.

I'm not sure if I want to self identify as a "Senior" folk but I guess I qualify. ;)Thanks for taking the lead in getting practice sessions started. The sooner the better. I will not have as much pre-race time available as I did last year so any and all help is appreciated. You can probably use bushnet for on-line multiplayer and teamspeak for the initial practice runs. Good luck. I will join you if I can.

I'm up for that. Granted, I'm not too hopeful for an SST this year (MAJOR HINT), but it's always good to be ready for surprises.

Hi Guys,I find that more and more real-life things are talking time away at this time. I might be able to join you guys for a Lawndart run, but let's see. In any case, the idea is good. I remember last year, where we had *lots* of problems during training. If I remember correctly, it took a few tries to get everyone from A to B on one piece.BrgdsSven Sorensen, EKCH

Hi All,As the training run is nearing Hawaii, we might consider this a chance to roll out the Lawndarts PHNL-KSFO.Just a thought :)BRGDSSven Sorensen, EKCH

Which concord are you flying? I have been looking to get 1 because it is not something I have at this time.

Hi,Well I have both PSS and SSTSIM Concorde, but have mostly flown in PSS. Not because it flies better (after the latest patch, quite the opposite in fact), but I'm simply more used to it. Also, while it may be more authentic to use the INS, I really HATE having to enter all these long/lats every time, there is no way to save them - even if there was in the real Concorde.I don't think either of them are FSX compatible.I have the ITTV Concorde DVD - *really* nice stuff and a lot to learnBRGDSSven Sorensen, EKCH
