Flight Simulator Round The World Race

Recommended Posts

As some of you may or may not be aware, AVSIM competes in an annual race around the world using Microsoft's Platform for Flight Simulation (includes Prepar3D).  This event has been ongoing since 2003.  Its an exciting event consisting of 2 sometimes 3 teams trying to fly around the world as fast as possible given a ruleset which can vary from year to year (to make things interesting).  In recent years however interest in the event has dwindled, we have a team of about 10 members, mostly north americans at the moment but we have had a team as high as 20+ members.  

My question to all of you is would this be an event that would pique your interest?  Basically the teams need members.  You do not even have to fly for team AVSIM, you can fly for team Sim-Outhouse or team Flightsim if that is what interests you.  Please go and have a look at https://www.fsrtwrace.com and see if it is something you might be interested in.  If so, check out the Race forum here at AVSIM and the team can walk you through anything you need to do to get setup.  If you want to fly tubeliners / propliners / warbirds / slow planes then there are always legs within the race that will accomodate most of these.  Granted the race is mostly flown in warbirds but rules can be changed.

Without your support, this race may not continue.  In fact 2020's race is up in the air at the moment.

Please check it out.. Thank you,
