Skyvector Plan

FSX Flight Plan


Choose aircraft that you plan to fly in the race.  It is a daylight session so fly the legs as fast as you can and land safely.  Let's tune up those racing skills.


Team members are encouraged to participate in this session. Any new race team members should make an effort to participate, as this session will provide an excellent opportunity to meet your fellow teammates and experience what the race is like. There will be experienced race members who can assist with any configuration changes required for the race, teamspeak, recommended race aircraft, and any other questions that you may have. The practice session will simulate the race environment including the following:


• Duenna validated legs with server tracking enabled

• Teamspeak communications

• Baton and Wingman with posts on the forum.

• Real time baton transfers and handoffs (if needed)

• On-line multiplayer using JoinFS


The practice session will start at 15:00 UTC (10AM EST) and will continue till 17:00 UTC.  Remember to change the event in your Duenna to "AVSIM RTWR Practice "

I noticed today between KEST and 1S5, on a bee-line course I flew over the Yakima Training Center red zone, so marked on my Little NavMap display.


Is that a race violation?  Do we have to avoid overflight of restricted airspace like this?

Well spotted Dan.  No violation in this case.  We are not required to observe real world airspace restrictions.


That said, when the special rules are released (just prior to the start of the race) the committee may designate flight restrictions in certain areas.  We will have to observe those or we will be in violation of the rules.
