FlightNight Jan. 23rd - GA and Choppers to Brussels!

17 Jan 2021 18:04 - 18 Jan 2021 12:13 #49471 by Vodoun da Vinci


We'll meet at the appointed hour of 8 pm London tome at Gatwick Airport- ICAO: EGKK. Please bring the Aircraft of you choice from the FGUK Hangars that can attain/maintain 120 KIAS at altitudes up to 5000' and sustain for at least one hours duration. Ideally a GA Aircraft of Chopper. From Gatwick we will depart Northish to EGTF, EGLL, EGLC, and land for refresh/refuel at EGMH - Manston on the East Coast.

After refresh/refuel we will depart Manston and climb directly to 5000' and fly directly to EBBR - Brussels Airport in Belgium. We will arrive at dusk and try to fly real weather so bucke up as it'll be dark and possibly raining or snowing.

Lots of cool airports (Gatwick and Brussels are both outstanding) and we'll be flying right past London for a long period pretty much West to East along the Thames late afternoon....we are looking for a depart time of roughly 1400 local time. Hope to see as many as possible!

Oh I love a 'piss off the self imposed ATC' flight.
Sorry, I mean trip across the channel ;)

I really aren't sure If I can make it but can I afford to miss out on the fun?....might have to move some plans around and get some beers in for this one.

Yes, but wouldn't it be better if when you select it there's not a corresponding replacement of the offending model with about 0.5 sec of explosion / fire effect and a loud "popping" noise?

Harrass my ass!

Those kids know nothing about the shit they're bragging about and break apart as soon as the work load grows a little. Patience, calmness and determination - qualities a controller needs - nothing I can find with these wannabe ATCs. Just a bunch of kids playing.

Ignore them or harrass back. I have no sympathies at all.

I hope, I can make it.

I'm with you Geed. I've tried many times to engage with the 'ATC' in FG. They are, at best, using outdated procedures and charts on systems that don't reflect what either side are seeing.

If you want to play ATC I think VATSIM/IVAO are the only way to do it in FG

Totally agree. There are quite some good ones on VATSIM. I tried IVAO but that was a long time ago.

It is possible to use FG with VATSIM out of the box now, isn't it?

Please please, if anyone has the time, grab the nightly build of FG and the Ortho scenery for this. It is just as simple as any other scenery and the result is quite simply a different simulator.

It's entirely VFR, real world navigation capable. The detail and realism is years ahead the current FG release. I'm genuinely stunned at these results.

Sorry for the spam but I genuinely can't believe this is FG I'm seeing this in.

For windows:-
download.flightgear.org/builds/nightly/F...4.0-nightly-full.exe

Voodoo, this means Terrasync includes a full world build of OSM Road, rail and buildings ( the fancy shit with the cars on the roads ) and it supports Photo scenery. In the Dev drive/ Scenery folder you will find an "England" folder. It is work in progress but has the photoscenery covering tonights flight. To install it Just follow the instructions on the public "Scotland" scenery release. It will work just the same.

Soooo,

Your recommendation is to uninstall 2020.3.4 and reinstall 2020.4.0 a couple of hours before the Flight ?

Hmmm - I think I'll rough it for tonight ! lol :)

Yeah - I get the premise.

The Dover Docks in your pic look blurred/blurry though ?

Just an observation....
