    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.

    best,

    .....................john

    Me too! Just wait a while so I can get the last few wrinkles outta this goddam software. Oh, and get that VSI to stop wrapping itself round the end stop. And find a way of stopping the seat slide from crashing to the backstop every time I rotate at take off (sorry, wait, that's the Piper Tomahawk, not my sim).

    Server is ready! It just needs a little more testing I think I will make it public and see what happens!

    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
    http://www.747simulator.co.uk/page70.html

    or the website of the Lead team world flight Australia
    http://www.worldflight.com.au/

    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.

    I guess fellow pilots are not aware of our FSHost and TeamSpeak. TeamSpeak is on the top menu bar, and I'll let someone else explain our FSHost server which runs all the time. Bob Reed will make sure the FSHost is in ready condition

    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
