Team AVSIM 2016 RTWR Practice Thread

Recommended Posts

Time to begin RTWR Practice. 

 

The practice legs should conform to the general rules, leg length (<750nm), time (< 2hrs), white list aircraft, real world weather. You can chose whatever time of day suites you but it is good to do some night flying.  Fly whatever aircraft you intend to fly in the race.

 

Do the full leg documentation.  

Baton claim post with aircraft declaration and origin - destination airport.  

Baton release post with Duenna & txt file.

 

Pilots may fly consecutive legs if the baton has been idle for at least one hour.

 

-Start airport is KMRY, Monterey California

-End airport is FACT, Capetown, South Africa

Well????? Ron???? are you going to bite the bullet & start us off? LOL  

 

Where's that Chalks paint? Looks great!

 

To others - Shall we directly upload to Avsim to practice proper posting? If so it may be time to clean up one's attachments as only 1.46MB worth are allowed. (My control panel  → Settings  → Manage Attachments)   -or- can we direct link to the jpg output/txt file from fs-duenna.com/flights/ShowFlight.php?flight=(my flight) . I'm thinking direct upload unless absolutely required that one could not do it.

 

Ron, there's a new epic! Not for prime time use yet but OH BOY! -

Baton free.

 

Landed KONM

 

iii. Time limit There is an absolute time limit of 3 hours for any leg. Legs exceeding this limit are automatically invalid. Legs lasting for more than two hours are automatically penalized by three minutes for each minute by which the previous leg exceeded this two-hour limit.

 

The baton time was 2 hrs 21 minutes but the time between the baton claim and baton free post was 2 hrs 33 minutes.  That means that we must add 3 x 33 minutes penalty time, so total leg time is 2 hrs 33 min + 1hr 39 min = 4 hrs 11 minutes.     :smile:

I have the baton.  KMRY-KONM in the Aircraft Factory P-51H

 

At first I thought that Ron had exceeded the 3 hrs but reviewing his post times I realized that he had not exceeded the time limit, so this is a wingman leg, not baton leg.

 

ARRRGH!!!  crashed enroute,  missed tank switch while posting to the forum.

change from baton to wingman, then update for crash.

So my Photoshop skills were a complete waste then? :Hmmmph:


Wingman.  KMRY-KONM in the Aircraft Factory P-51H

Why are you still a wingman if my flight to KONM was legit? (albeit lengthy) :smile:


Even proven facts start out life as theories. Don't knock 'em. 🙂

OK,  This wingman leg is superfluous.  When I first posted I stated that it was a baton leg because I thought you had exceeded the 3 hour max.  I was enroute when I realized that you had not exceeded the 3 hours so I amended my leg post to make it a wingman leg, then when I got back into flightsim I found that I had missed a tank switch and had crashed.  Now I am re-flying the crashed and unnecessary wingman leg because I am not goint to bed with a red Duenna.  :smile:
