To all racers,

Hope everyone had a great summer!!

With the race coming up in a few months, we are trying again to gauge interest in the race.  As you know, the race will require approximately 10 pilots and I know historically at AVSIM, we have had more than that.  So are we interested in holding an event this year?

Also, Duenna version 3.  Please download it and test it on your PC if you wish to join in the race, the more notice I can get for any potential issues the better. 

If you wish to add ideas on how to reinvigorate this event, please post in the official race forums at http://www.fsrtwrace.com

Thanks,

Count me in.  Have a new PC and am running FSX:SE.  Very stable now, which is a nice change of pace, and everything works like it's supposed to.

Speaking of which, did something happen to the team forum, or my membership therein?  I no longer see a link for it when I log on here at AVSIM.

Craig, PM Jeff, I believe he is the only mod of this forum and I believe he can either change that or knows who to contact.  I had a similar issue a couple months ago.

Gunter,

Shame you won't be able to make it. We could use a REAL pilot on the team.

As far as I know I will be available, and looking forward to another race.

I can't seem to find the race dates anywhere...what are the dates in Feb. 2019?

Kind Regards,

Traditionally, the RTWR starts on the first weekend after Valentine's Day. If things follow form, that would probably mean a start at about 0001 UTC on Saturday February 16, 2018. (While the past has served as a guide, things may change if absolutely necessary.)

What if we have the additional rule that we must run with engine stress causes damage  on? and then on the more realistic planes? like warbirdsim and a2a milviz etc? that would make flying on the limit a bit more interesting, but then again,  who am i?

Leon,

The one problem with this is availability.
The race executive team requires that an aircraft "type" be available to anyone - from FS9 thru P3Dv#, freeware or payware. 
Restricting to failures would negate all the above because almost 90% of the aircraft that have extensive failures are payware and are very limited (if at all) to FS9 aircraft.

would we still want FS9 to be in the list, or do we move on to FSX P3d and X plane

i think adding an extra dimension, so that we cant fly full power all the time is a challange that is welcome to revive the event.

best regards

 

Leon
