  1. Apologies for any confusion. Whilst the total distance is correct, the individual sector distances in the Navigation Instructions for Flight Leg 4 are incorrect. They should read: 58 nm, 38 nm, 37 nm, 80 nm, and 82 nm. The document has been amended and will be available on the MEBAR Downloads page later today. Regards Andrew
  2. To all MEBAR Pilots: Due to RL commitments I won't be around to update the Results and Target Times spreadsheet on Wednesday. Normal service will be resumed on Thursday. Thank you Joe
  3. There seemed to be some confusion on the flight numbers to be used in the PIREP form. We were getting VA flight numbers and tail numbers so we didn't know which flight to assign the time to. So.. I have slightly changed the PIREP form and relabeled "Flight Number" to "MEBAR Flight Number" and only allow MEBAR flight number to be 1-2-3-4-5. If you want to add any extra details then please use the message box. Thanks.. Joe On behalf of the Rally Organising Committee.
  4. The MEBAR is designed to be challenging in various ways. You will soon discover that the weather is quite challenging on some of the Flight Legs for this year. I attempt to make the weather scenarios as realistic as possible for the location and time of the year and use historical data extensively for this. This year, Flight Leg 2 probably has the most challenging weather and you may find the cloud base is below the surrounding mountains around the two airports at which you have to conduct the "touch and goes". So, let me provide an explanation to the weather scenario for Flight Le
  5. Discrepancies have been encountered when using Plan-G to determine the cruising altitude for the MEBAR Flight Legs. Consequently, it is highly recommened to use the free, online flight planning tool, Skyvector, for accurately determining your cruise altitude for the Flight Legs and to avoid hitting solid clouds. https://skyvector.com/ Cheers Andrew
  6. You have been waiting patiently for the flight situation files, weather and event briefings, now they're here! I am pleased to announce the MEBAR is now fully Live. Don't forget those PIREP dates, if any of the dates are inconvenient for you, don't forget you can fly and send in PIREPs ahead of time but they will not be processed and published until the due date. Happy flying, and be safe out there!
  7. NOTAM An amendment has been made to the MEBAR Airports Chart Pack produced by John Allard. If you downloaded this pack prior to 29 Mar 17, you will need to download it again to get the updated pack.
  8. The latest version of the Operation Chastise Training Mission has been uploaded to the MH File Library - you should find it here: http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/files/file/2240-operation-chastise-training-mission/ Why not have a go and see how you'd compare with the pilots and crews of RAF 617 Squadron when they attacked the Ruhr dams with 'Upkeep', Barnes Wallis's Bouncing Bomb. Although the mission was designed for the MKIII Lancaster, you can fly an aircraft of your choice (as long as it will attain 200 KIAS!) Post your screenshots here - Thanks! And Thanks
  9. Airport Complexity Score We no longer have a file library and only a download capacity for airport diagram bundles. Therefore this complexity score is no longer visible to anyone except Airport Diagram subscribers, who still get it for individual airports with their daily e-mails. If you don't use the airport diagrams from the file library, there's no reason to read this thread. I've developed a "Complexity Score" statistic to give users the ability to judge at a glance how an airport stacks up against others. The score will simply be a number and it will b
  10. Interesting problem cropped up this afternoon. I was originally going to post this in the AH forum, but I did a bit of flying in another aircraft and (discovered??) found the problem appears to be NZNP related rather than aircraft or AH. Flying TO NZNP in either the Beaver (which I was using for AH) or the default C-172. Every time I brought up the "Procedure" function on the GPS, the sim froze. It never dumped me to the desktop, just went into a permanent hold. This was a bit exiting in that it first occurred on a revenue flight from NZWN to NZNP. This could have been reputation-disas
  11. It seems some participants expect perfect weather all the way. The MEBAR is not an all fair weather event. As per the Event Overview on the MEBAR Home Page and also on the Rules page, please note the following. The flights involve either and / or a combination of VOR, NDB and "dead reckoning" navigating under day Visual Flight Rule (VFR) and / or Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) conditions. Variable departure times and weather conditions will also exist for each flight. Happy IFR flying!
  12. Hello every one. The exact timing for the online flight is still undecided, but the preliminary date at this time is on March 13th. More details on the exact time will be published in this topic when decided. But in the mean time I thought I'd publish the flight plan and some further details so you all know what we will be doing once we are in the air. The attached zip-file contains the flight plan in both Plan-G and FSX formats. En route from Calais to Southampton we will pass by, and preform a Touch & Go at 12 other airports (EGMH, EGKE, EGMD, EGKH, EGTO, EGKB, EGKL, EGKR
  13. Loaded up the test flight files, tuned the REN VOR to 109.25 and had no ident ... checked it out to find it should be REN VOR 112.80 ....just a heads up for those using FS9.

  15. The navigation instructions for Flight Leg 3, Waypoint 3 should read: Navigate to Waypoint 3 (Lac de Payolle) – intersection of 166 deg OB radial from TBO VOR and 334 deg bearing to TL NDB.
  16. Hi gang, After just over 13 months on the fly transporting our baton around the world we are now entering the final section taking us full circle around the globe back to EGHI. But before we get there we have another 10 legs to fly! These legs will take us up north through Libya, and jump across the water to Italy. After a few flights over the land of Pasta and Pizza with a slight detour to Croatia we do a quick stop in Switzerland before we head on through France and back to the UK. As evident by the list above all legs with the exception of leg 70 are open to bidding in
  17. The Rally Co-ordination Team are pleased to announce the MEBAR will be returning for it's sixth event! For those not in the know, the Mutley's Easter Bunny Air Rally is an event in which individuals participate against their own flying ability by navigating over a series of flight legs on which they are aiming to fly as close as possible to an individually calculated "target time". Flight legs can involve either and / or a combination of VOR, NDB and "dead reckoning" navigating under visual flight rule (VFR) and / or instrument flight rule (IFR) conditions with variable departure times a
  18. Capt Brown also held the world record for flying the greatest number of different types of aircraft - 487. During World War Two, Capt Brown, who was born in Leith in 1919, flew fighter aircraft and witnessed the liberation of Bergen Belsen concentration camp. Capt Brown, who had been appointed MBE, OBE and CBE, died at East Surrey Hospital after a short illness. A statement released by his family said: "It is with deep regret that the passing of Captain Eric Melrose Brown CBE DSC AFC is announced. "Eric was the most decorated pilot of the Fleet Air Arm in which service he was universally kn

  20. Was just mooching at the Flightstore website and they are clearing out a selection of photoreal scenery add ons, mainly UK2000 and Playsim titles. Some are going for £5 a piece. If you're looking for a bargain, go take a look, but beware, a few are for FS2004 ! Edit: There are also some aircraft on sale for £1 ..Hellcat, Panther, RV8 and the Stearman too
  21. A new year, and a new string of spam emails from PFS (Pro Flight Simulator for those that haven't had the misfortune of coming across it) To quote their words " You've got to check this out...[AMAZING]" ... what, $97 for something that is Open Source anyway ? Oh, and wait, the price is going to go up in 24 hours !! Really ?! Please don't be fooled by this 'offer'. Steer well clear !
  22. Cheers gang Just a heads up to everyone involved in the ATWC SiX. During the coming holiday, and up until new years I have limited possibilities to update the departure board due to visitors at home staying in the room where I have the computer with the necessary software for updating. So if a leg is finished and you are next in line, assume you have eight days to finish it and post your PIREP even if the departure board isn't updated to reflect this. Once we get past new years the deadline once again goes back to the regular four days. Take care and have a stunningly great ho
  23. Hi gang. With section 5 done, and the baton waiting with me in Barcelos, it’s time to open up section 6 for bidding. The bidding window will open up tomorrow, December 12th at 13:00 UTC. See the image below for the available legs. As usual bids shall be sent to atwc@mutleyshangar.com and only bids sent after the bidding window opens are valid for assignment. One leg, leg 58, have a restriction imposed on it. If you bid on that leg make sure to include the plane you plan on using so we can make sure it meets the restriction criteria. And as usual it’s possible to include more than one le
  24. Due to a scenery error in the default scenery for SWTP Tapuruquara (The runway is located on water, so I'm not sure it's possible to land without problems) the destination for leg 50 will be changed to SWBC - Barcelos. Subsequently the departure airport for leg 51, more on that leg later, will be relocated to SWBC as well.
  25. Yesterday, I booted up AH with the intention of doing some business. Did I ever! During the process, the AH "Fleet" page was open. I always check this first to see if there's any maintenance (or hopefully not, repairs) needed before the days flying starts. One thing I noted is that my TrackBall was a bit 'draggy'. This happens periodically unless you pull out the little ball and clean the contact points as they build up a bit of dust. Kind of like what your wife calls 'Dust Bunnies' - you know, the ones that live under the bed. Imagine my surprise (read chagrin) when I completed t
