stu7708 244 Posted February 17, 2016 Report Share Posted February 17, 2016 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 the section. Legs 67 and 68 have restrictions imposed on them with a Ultralight model required for leg 67, and a model with a minimum MTOW of 7,000 lbs required for leg 68. The bidding window for section 7 will open at 18:00 UTC on Friday February the 19th. As usual only bids submitted to email@example.com after the bidding window opens will be eligible for assignment. If the bid is for legs 67 or 68 don't forget to include the type of plane you plan on using so we can make sure the bid meets the restrictions imposed on the flight, and don't forget that it's possible to include more than one leg in your bid. As for leg 70, this will be flown as an online multiplayer event open for any pilot willing to fly along side the other maniacs on this forum. We will use the built in multiplayer function in FSX, and due to this fact any user participating will need to fly using FSX with SP2 or Acceleration installed. Sadly we can't connect pilots using FS9, FSX:SE or P3D to this session. In addition to this you will need a free Skype account since we intend to use this for pilot communication during the flight. Further information and a time and date for the flight will be communicated at a later date when we have ironed out the details for the flight, but it will most likely be held on a Sunday morning UK time. Departure will most likely be at around 10 AM UK time. It's also worth nothing that the PIREP will come in the form of a publicly published YouTube-video, and your voice might end up in the video as all mischief and any misconduct will be recorded. Any sign of proper airmanship will however be edited out of the final video, as evident in the two previous Finale videos If you feel like joining in for the online finale please let me know in your bid, with your Skype username included. If you will refrain from bidding for a leg in section 7 but want to join in for the online event you can still send an email to the adress above with your details so we know who we need to contact when the flight takes place. That's it for now, Safe skies Micke Quote Link to post Share on other sites
