Thanks for joining us, Tim and Thanks Joe and Kieran for putting up as well. Last year we used the DC-3 for GAAR, the Shorts "Flying Brick" for MEBAR and the DH-104 Dove for GARSA. Please post your prefered aircraft - it doesn't need to be one we've flown before, but it should be freely available and suited to the sort of challenges that young Andrew is likely to throw our way!

BTW, I'll most likely be doing GAAR 2012 separately in the DCA DC-3, so I've no axe to grind... :whis:

Hey - I'm really looking forward to this! :clapping:

Cheers - Dai. :cool:

P.S. Thanks for the promotion, Boss!

Currently, we have 5 pilots for Team-Mutley: Joe, Rob, Tim, Kieran and me (Dai). The basic rally roster looks like this:

Great Australian Air Rally 2012 - Team-Mutley Roster
1.	Cairns (YBCS) to Pormpuraaw (YPMP)		283 nm		xxxx
2.	Pormpuraaw (YPMP) to Murray Island (YMUI)	361 nm		xxxx
3.	Murray Island (YMUI) to Port Moresby (AYPY)	189 nm		xxxx
4.	Port Moresby (AYPY) to Saidor (SDR)		283 nm		xxxx
5.	Saidor (SDR) to Mendi (AYMN)			177 nm		xxxx
6.	Mendi (AYMN) to Tabubil (AYTB)		        154 nm		xxxx
7.	Tabubil (AYTB) to Morehead (MHD)		298 nm		xxxx
8.	Morehead (MHD) to Coconut Island (YCCT)	        118 nm		xxxx
9.	Coconut Island (YCCT) to Lockhart River (YLHR)	165 nm		xxxx
10.	Lockhart River (YLHR) to Cooktown (YCKN)	193 nm		xxxx

We haven't assigned pilots to the individual Legs, yet - have you any preferences? I don't mind flying Leg 2 - there's a nice short field at the end of it... :whis:

Also - and this is important - we haven't decided on an aircraft. Kieran has suggested the P40, which sounds exciting, but maybe you have another choice?

Please post your Leg/Aircraft choice(s) - first come etc...

Lastly, there are 10 Legs, so we welcome additional pilots to join Team-Mutley. I'm flying the whole Rally in the DC-3, so I need only do 1 Leg.

Cheers - Dai. :cool:

The default DC-3 is probably the most straightforward aircraft in anyone's hangar, so she'll be difficult to beat on that score. As each Team-Mutley member has to fly the Test Flight, we really ought to decide by, say, the 25th (next Wednesday). If no other aircraft has been put up, we'll go with Ms Dizzie...

And remember, any else who wants to join the most exclusive club in the flight sim world - more exclusive than even the MS FLIGHT beta - please add your name to the team! :thum:

Cheers - Dai. :cool:

Does that look all right with you guys? And could Tim/Joe spin a coin for the privilege of starting... :whis:

As for the Team-Mutley livery, wasn't that for the AH/JF Dizzie, Rob. Have we all got this add-on - let us know...

Cheers - Dai. :cool:

Hi Team!

If you're going to fly the Test Flight, can you aim at a TAS of 140 knots, please? (Give or take 5 knots) This will allow for Borneo highlands and high humidity in the tropics...

Oh Yes - And don't forget to post your time here! Thanks. :thum:

Cheers - Dai. :cool:
