So before I knew about this section of the forum and how other people are chronicalling there adventures, I started the first part of this thread here: [unofficial] GAAR 2016 Leg 01 However now I (think) I understand how this works, I'm going to chronicle my adventures in a single thread per area. This one for the 2016 GAAR another for the NZAR 2016 etc. Anyway, go read the first part if you haven't already and I'll get on with the next part of the journey.
C-17 [unofficial] GAAR 2016 Leg 01
OzWookiee posted a topic in ScreenshotsAfter (unofficially) completing the MEBAR I've decided to use another Air Rally as a chance to learn more about our hobby and a new airframe. Now in this particular instance my choice of plane is completely against the theme and I'm sure the intent of the GAAR originally organised by Bluegrass Airlines and I believe our very own @Andrew Godden (please forgive me but I haven't gotten my old birds in the hanger yet and I really wanted something to learn the systems on this baby.), who I will just have to beg his forgiveness and indulgence, however I have decided to use the C-17 Globemaster III b
MADE FOR GAAR
Quickmarch posted a topic in GeneralI mis-spent a few hours this afternoon messing about with 2D panels for the DC-3.

Join In! Team Mutley for GAAR 2013
ddavid posted a topic in MHFC Captains LoungeIt's that time of year again! Andrew Godden has just announced GAAR 2013 - it looks like this: 10 fairly straightforward flight stages (Not if I know Andrew! - Ed) and another opportunity for Team Mutley to shine (we were World Champions in 2012). To date, we have several stalwarts lined up for Team Mutley - Joe, Andrew and Brett have all shown their interest. Anyone can join in and being a member of an experienced team is a great way to get involved if you've not flown this type of rally before. So, let's hear from you! Last year we fielded 2 teams for the Mutley's Easter Bunny Rally, so
GAAR 2012 - a diary...
ddavid posted a topic in Flight Sim AdventuresThanks to Andrew Godden, of Bluegrass Airlins, and Mutley's Hangar, of course (!), we have a new challenge - the 2012 Great Aistralian Air Rally - GAAR 2012. Starting from Cairns International, this year's GAAR takes us around Papua New Guinea and the northern section of the Barrier Reef before returning to Cooktown, just a few nautical miles from the start, 10 Flight Legs later. The first Leg, from Cairns to Pormpuraaw, looks like this (thanks to Tim Arnott's Plan-G): It's a nice afternoon at Cairns. The old DC Airways DC-3 is ready to go: Climbing out and on our way to the first waypo
