08 Sep 2021 11:13 - 08 Sep 2021 22:32 #51087 by Vodoun da Vinci


We'll meet at the appointed hour of 8 pm London time at ICAO EDTF - Freiburg Airport in Germany. Please bring the 'Chopper of your choice from the FGUK Hangars that can attain and maintain a speed of 130 KIAS to altitudes of approx. 7000'. Much of this trip will actually be done at AGL 900

We will depart the starting airport and fly directly to: LFSC, LFSB, LSZH and land at LSMD - Militärflugplatz Dübendorf as our midpoint refresh and refuel airport. After refueling we will depart and overfly LSME, LSZC, LSMF, LOIH, LSZR and then land at EDNY - Friedrichshafen Airport in Deutschland once again.

I have encountered an awful lot of really cool terrain/topography and Urban stuff and some pretty nice airports on this route and so hope to share this with as many FGFS/FGUK Aficionados as possible!

As a word of warning - maybe practice a bit on spawning at many of these waypoints as apparently well meaning folks have placed crash able objects/aircraft/buildings in more than a few spawning locations and if you originate there yer Dead on Arrival. Pick your points to launch from carefully as many of them will spawn you in a building, on another aircraft (a fixed position aircraft that will kill you) or some odd impossible location. Just....be aware. Especially LSMD - I spawned at at least 6 different points and *ALL* of them killed me as I tried to take off. If in doubt use an active runway and go where it's safe.

I'll be at the Memorial Flight, in a F-35B because I've lent my HOTAS unit to a friend and I can't do helicopters very well with it anyway.
At least in the F-35 I can use keyboard/mouse & AP.
So I will be with you on the next 1. Looks like I'll be missing some stunning scenery :(
Sorry.

We'll miss you guys but the grief is mitigated by the awesome Orthographic scenery.

Super thanks to Oly again!
