Lukla Warmup in Papua New Guinea

Recommended Posts

Lukla Warmup in Papua New Guinea

We are flying into and around Lukla in the Himalayas this Saturday. Josh suggested that we might "warm up" our Twin Otter skills by revisiting some of our familiar haunts in Papua New Guinea. Nice chance to practice control and handling short vertical airstrips – not to mention practice our aircraft repair skills.

Accordingly, here is an event for this coming Wednesday, March 18, 2020. We shall fly from Kokoda [AYKO] to Woitape [WIP]. The route includes the challenging airstrips included in the Orbx Tapini package: Kokoda [AYKO], Asimba [ASB], Yongai [KGH], Kosipe [KSP], Tapini [TAP], Fane [FNE], Ononge [ONB], and Woitape [WIP].

The flightplan is here. (Note that the flightplan starts and ends at Port Moresby Jacksons [AYPY]. We shall ignore the AYPY endpoints: we start at Kokoda and end at Woitape.)

Aircraft. This is something like 97nm plus some circling to land as well as to climb over a few ridges. Recommended for the Lukla experience and thus here is the Aerosoft Twin Otter. (If you have the Lukla scenery, you also have received one instance of the Aerosoft Twin Otter.) While the Twin Otter is recommended, you should fly what you like.

If it is convenient, you might choose to fly the same aircraft and same livery in both the official Saturday Lukla flight and this PNC warmup event. (Doing so will allow your fellow pilots to have the appropriate aircraft-livery combinations already set up for both
events.) You can enter your aircraft details on the multiplayer spreadsheet (linked here).

Scenery. We shall need the two Orbx PNC packages, Jacksons and Tapini.

Date and time: Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at 1900 UTC.
(3pm EDT, 2pm CDT, 1pm MDT, and 12noon PDT.)
