  1. NIce pics Roman, thanks! Shot #8: that might be the aerodynamic braking? Have a look at this video here of the real thing, The Just Flight model does it really nicely.
  2. Yes, me when we get to the two smaller airports....
  3. I have made available a P3D v4 compatible Vulcan multiplayer proxy for today's flight. The link is in the MP spreadsheet. All set up for the aircraft I will be flying so with a bit of luck JoinFS should substitute it automatically. It's even same same registration as the one I'm flying 😀
  4. Seen earlier today leaving UK airspace at high altitude, heading approximately south-east....

    Greece-Turkish Zig-Zag

    I've been trying and failing to connect to our Teamspeak server for the past half hour or so. I can connect to Digital Themepark with no problem. Looks like there might be something up with our server. If it's not working, does everyone know to go instead to: ts3.digitalthemepark.com I'll be there if I can't get in to ours, but I usually need somone with higher permissions to pull me in to the room we use.

    All scenery installed successfully for the flight. A lot of nice finds there, Gunter. Just as a heads-up, I needed to disable Orbx Vector airport elevation correction for LTBJ Izmir, so you might want to check it. If you're looking for a shortcut installing some of the airports, I installed just the main scenery folders and didn't add the effects and SODE bits. It looked fine, especially in daytime. I can live without animated windsocks.

    For anyone else flying today with a F1 GTN, the flight plan in GFP format can be downloaded here.

    Wx report from Blue River: 'orrible. Unless you fancy testing your terrain warning system in fog, you might want to set up one of Mike's historical weather suggestions.

    Alps In Style

    Steve, First I upload the picture to an external cloud storage site - I use Dropbox. In Dropbox, I right-click the image file and select "Copy Dropbox link". To add the image to the forum post, I place the cursor at the intended insertion point, then click the "Insert other media" button to the bottom right of the text area and select "Insert image from URL". I paste in the URL, but change "dl=0" at the end of the URL to "dl=1". Then click the "Insert into post" button. It used to not work every time but recently it seems to work reliably. You realise of course that we will now expect to see amazing screenshots from you....

    Alps In Style

    This week sees the long-awaited tour through the Alps for more powerful aircraft. We'll start at Salzburg and hit most of the big runways in the Alps, all the way to Geneva, with a detour through northern Italy. Stops are at Innsbruck, Bolzano, Samedan, Bergamo, Milan (Malpensa) and Turin. There are going to be a lot of ups and downs on this one! Flight plans (both PLN and GFP formats) Aircraft Although the plan was designed with large four-engined props in mind, it will work well for a variety of aircraft. Target cruise speed is around 220kts, ideally with decent altitude (up to 15,000ft) and climb performance. I will be flying the Avro Lancaster, other good choices could include the Connie, DC-6, King Air, PC-12, Q400, or any private jet. Particulars Date and time: Saturday 22nd September 2018, 1800 UTC. Where: AVSIM RTWR Teamspeak - Casual Flights Channel Teamspeak Server Address: ts.teamavsim.com Cross-Platform Multiplayer: JoinFS. (FSX, FSX-SE, and P3D). If you want to help others enjoy the multiplayer experience, don't forget to enter your aircraft details on the multiplayer spreadsheet (linked here). Your courtesy will save others a lot of time and effort. Thanks!
  12. This week we tour the Orkney Islands off the north coast of Scotland. This plan was originally done in 2015, but I have lengthened it slightly. We start at Inverness, with a quick stop at Dornoch before we join the original plan at Wick. Next we head north across to the islands, where our route will include the shortest scheduled flight in the world between Westray and Papa Westray, done in the RW in an Islander. After stops on just about every runway on the islands, we'll finish at Kirkwall. Flight plans and even a short narrative (from 2015) can be downloaded here. Aircraft The plan is 186nm so there's no hurry. A Britten-Norman Islander would be ideal, as this flies the commercial routes around the islands. A Twin Otter or a C182 would also be good choices. There are some shortish runways, around 2000ft. I will be flying a small building (those who were around last week will know what I mean). Scenery Orbx Scotland will be the ideal scenery package. I believe most or all of the airports are included in P3D though. Particulars Date and time: Saturday 15th September 2018, 1800 UTC.

  13. The second unashamedly recycled flight plan seeing central Oregon in the summer. We start at Longview Ranch (OG39) and make our way first along the John Day River valley. First stop is at Wiley Creek (0OR1), then an easier one at Grant County Regional (KGCD) airport in John Day before going back to the farm strips and Hi Country No. 2 (97OR). We leave the John Day valley and head southeast to Murphy Ranch (3OR9). We then make our way north heading loosely towards Baker City with stops at Lockhart (2OR6), Unity (11OG) Bald Mountain (OG45) and Muddy Creek (OG27). Final destination for the week is Baker City Municipal (KBKE). Flight plans PLN format GFP format for F1 GTN Aircraft There are some small and sloping strips on this plan so you would benefit from taking something suitable. C185, Beaver, Kodiak or similar would all be good, but fly what you like. I expect I'll be in a Beaver. Scenery The plan is based on Orbx Central Rocky Mountains region, which will greatly enhance the experience. Longview Ranch (OG39) is available from Orbx but not required.

    Spitfire Sweep - SATURDAY 11th August

    Too busy practicing my climbs to 20,000ft to reply! 😛
  15. The population of the state of Oregon are well-known for their concern for environmental matters, so this is a special, eco-friendly flight plan that I'm sure the Oregonians would approve of. Why, you ask? Because it's 100% recycled! Back in January we did this plan with skis on. Now we'll see what it looks like in summer. We'll start in the Willamette valley at Hobby Field (77OR) in Creswell. It's just a short ride to a quick stop at Jasper Ridge (36OR) to make sure we've got our short-field skills up to scratch before we head over the mountains. Next, up and over the Cascade range, stopping at McKenzie Bridge (00S) and passing the Three Sisters peaks, landing at Sisters Eagle Airport (6K5). Then we start on the small strips: The Citadel (61OR), Tailwheel (18OR) and Wilson Ranch (OG12). A longer leg then takes us across the Ochoco National Forest to the Painted Hills (depicted in the scenery), thence to Land's Inn Ranch (49OR) and finally landing at Longview Ranch (OG39). Flight plans PLN format GFP format Aircraft There are some small and sometimes sloping strips on this plan so you would benefit from taking something suitable. I flew it last time using the C185F. It's not a long plan so we don't need much speed (120kts would be fine) but remember there are some mountains to climb. I'm thinking C185F, Beaver, Otter, Soloy 206 should all work well... but as always, fly what you like. Scenery The plan is based on Orbx Central Rocky Mountains region, which will greatly enhance the experience. Hobby Field (77S) and Longview Ranch (OG39) are both available from Orbx but not required. Orbx OG39 also includes Land's Inn Ranch (49OR) as a bonus field.  Particulars Date and time: Saturday 28th July 2018, 1800 UTC.
