In association with PC Pilot Magazine and official sponsors PMDG, ORBX, Addictive Simulations, Just Flight, Buffalo Virtual Airways and United Virtual, the very kind support of the AVSIM team and many others we can now announce that a special series of flights will now be flown on VATSIM, starting 23.59GMT 18.59EST on the 18th Jan (next Friday).
Pilots are invited to fly a tour of Canada and the USA on VATSIM, joining with PC Pilot writers and others from within the flight simulation hobby. The full itinerary will follow shortly over the next day or so.
Not only that, the entire event will be broadcast using live streaming to Youtube and other broadcast sites who are helping us provide live cockpit video. In addition to cockpit video Peter Wright will be providing a realtime commentary and also interviewing many flight sim developers and simmers, in what we hope will prove to be an entertaining weekend. There will also be a series of competitions and prizes as part of the broadcasted events. This is destined to be one of the most exciting FS events in some time!
