Cockpits in action
Hi to all,
What about an idea to put all our cockpits in action somewhere online one day per month? Can an event like this be organized by the staff? IF of cource the members of this forum would aggre and like something like this idea.

Count me in.. Umm wait, I need to finish my build first LOL
When you have a date in mind, post it in the forums, and see how many show up. Bob Reed was talking about using an FSHost server, perhaps you guys could all get online there. Wither that or on VATSIM

mmmmm. I really do not have any idea about the date. Maybe the staff can make a pole with some possible days? Lets say the first Friday of the month or something else?

I think it is a GREAT idea. Once the "tradition" is established, the participation will likely build. Hopefully the MyCockpits FSHost flight server will be back online soon (Bob?)
My suggestion is to post a specific "flight" each month. Make the flight time about one to one and-a-half hours long. For many, that is about all the time they can find at one sitting. And chose the airports to be suitable to a number of aircraft types.....since we'll probably have everything from Lears and CRJs to 747s and A380s.
One REAL problem is mixing small GA people with the heavy metal. (Disable wake turbulence in ActiveSKy!) The speeds just don't match up for an airport to airport hop.
BIG caveats always revolve around time zones. What is early evening for those in Great Britian is mid afternoon for those on the east coast of the USA,....... and is the wee hours of the morning for those in Asia.

In case of FSHost we need also a teamspeak server in order to syncronize.
In case of online (Vatsim or Ivao) we can have ATC support.

We have already beaten you to it on this one although it is only once per year
the event is called World Flight and its starts on 2nd - 3rd November depending on where you are located on the planet.
this year it looks like there will be approx 12-15 full size sims taking part including my own. there are 45 different legs and the event will have Total VATSIM Coverage. we will be flying 24-7 for one week !
we are all raising money for our individual charities and welcome your support.
Each year there are many desktop sims follow us round and there is no reason why any of you cant do the same in your sims.
to find out more about the event visit my own website
or the website of the Lead team world flight Australia
You can also view our promo which was filmed in my sim last year during the event http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqaE1pheKBg
Best wishes John

The Teamspeak server is up and running! (Thanks Dee!)
Yes, time zones figure in pretty strongly. I would love this. Once a month would be good. We can make it a 'Tour the World' trip and do a different leg each month. We should hit every country/state/province in the world. That will give us more than enough stops to last for some time.
And plan it so that we all are landing pretty close to each other. Give ATC a real workout. That means GA will be first off and last in.God's in command, I'm just the Pilot.

Team Speak and FShost is already here
I love the idea of organizing a day of flight. I don't care what kind of cockpit you got, this should be lot's of fun
