THE LAST LEG OF THE RTW RACE: POLL

Recommended Posts

OK, we're getting down there now where we have to start thinking about the last leg, and the special rules that I alluded to in my original rules post.You have a choice:OPTION 1:Race the other forum to KLGA in New York. Whoever gets there first is declared the winner. The winning team waits there for the other team to arrive, then both teams travel on the final leg to Boston together. Once we arrive in Boston, there will be options to do group flights, aerobatics, formation flying, group flyouts, whatever. Bottom line: General Festivities to celebrate. I'd make a seperate post and invite everyone on both forums to join, regardless of whether they participated or not. This seems to me like the best option, but once again, it's up to the teams.OPTION 2:Do separate groupflights for each forum whenever they get to the airport where they plan to fly to boston from.I will post more info on whichever one we choose once we have reached a decision.Regards-

This might take some planning but maybe for the next around the world race set up the race like this:1) Avsim vs Flightsim2) The race will consist of checkpoints located in every Capital City of every country in which a full stop will be required.3) The host of the event will include a list of each Capital City that is requires a full stop landing. 4) In the event more than one field is located in the Capital City, any one of those airfields can be used otherwise, the International Airport of that City will be used.All other rules would be the same from the current race. Since Avsim uses a majority blue logo and FlightSim uses a majority red logo the teams will be considered as such (at least if Matt does another great map).Kilstorm

option 2) obviously. Otherwise we'll loose our (by now approximately) 12 hour advantage (unless we'll be allowed that headstart from LGA of course).

I'd go for option one... It's whoever gets to KLGA first that wins, so the trip to KBOS can be done together (winning team first of course)I'd suggest one more thing... that each team arrives to one New York Airport (LGA and JFK) and then depart from there to help unclutter the airspace. If this does not happen we can have guys waiting hours to be dispatched, and it wouldn't be fun.RegardsFrancisco Leit

I'll go with the majority, but remember it will be a long wait for us given our current position :-lol

Option 1. The folks over at FS.Com have also done a great job, and merely getting around the world is a feat in itself.--M

Option 1.Yes, we all want to celebrate the endeavor itself. Absolutely terrific idea, Matt (Smith).Mike----Matt, might you make a quick ruling on this? Team AVSIM will be in KLGA this morning -- awaiting further orders.

Option One sounds like it'd be the best, but we could always fly to Boston, turn back, have dinner at the Tavern on the Green, then escort our FS.COM friends up to Boston! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -Although I haven't the skills to do it, someone should write a web-based online "race" website, dedicated to pass-the-baton type races.My Virtual Airline has the capability of using FS Flight Tracker to display my virtual location, realtime, on a map. This type of system could be employed to make the progress map more "live".Also, those with ACARS-style programs (FS Flight Tracker, etc) could use it's VA reporting features to automatically inform the host site that they have touched down. Between the "realtime" updates through FSFT, and it's ACARS touchdown notification, this imaginary website could theoretically post a "20-miles out" or a "leg complete!" message, or even shoot an email out to the next pilot in the queue. That pilot doesn't "log in" and claim his slot, it emails the next pilot in the queue. The whole system could provide a nice layout of the legs flown, and could spare us from having to navigate threads to find out the progress.Just an idea for you intrepid web developers! Probably more work than is needed for a race, but it would be kinda cool to do!
