2008 RTW Practice #4

Recommended Posts

We are going to work our way down to the tip of the continent and then back up. I have not visited all of these fields yet, just using google earth to pick out a route that sticks to the mountains. Some are shorter, I have no idea about lights on the fields, but we need to practice flying into places at night as well.A lot of fields are on the shorter side, so practice your slow flying skills on approach and land with as little airspeed as possible and try not to bounce. This should give us good practice at deciding to go around. In the race it is more important to go around and not crash than it is to try and save a botched approach.SCDA - SCPESCPE - SCESSCES - SCECSCEC - SCTLSCTL - SCFTSCFT - SCHRSCHR - SCNTSCNT - SAWH

Crash - No lights on the field in a populated area. Got a little vertigo and looked to be landing long and lost control when I decided to go around and try again. Dropped the wing and it was all over. Watch that torque!

We are going to add a leg to the route.Change SCTL - SCFT to SCTL - SCPCThen SCPC - SCFTSCFT is an extremely challenging field with FS Genesis mesh. It would suck to fly 400+ miles and crash and have to refly. This new leg splits it in half.If you want to divert to somewhere nearby and then make a run into SCFT, feel free to do that as well.
