The final flight back to Paderborn

Recommended Posts

After 2.5 years our trip around the world comes to an end.

For the last flight back to Paderborn, from our 2nd-to-last fields Andras Field or Innsbruck, I suggest:

saturday 26th of august, 1800utc, using JoinFS for flight sharing online and Teamspeak for speech.

Details we can share later.

Dear all,

 

due to real life catching up, I'd like to move the last flight up 1 day: sunday the 27th of August, 1900 utc.

I hope all can make this. I'll post details on flight server and teamspeak server soon.

I've a bit of work to do in order to catch up with you guys. I only have 1 leg done from the last batch. I've spent the last week playing about with the new CRJ trying to figure it out :lol: I probably should have been more productive on our tour, but y'know, new toys are kinda exciting lol.

 

Anyway, I'm currently not in a position to fly online so I think I'll have to give it a miss, and just do it offline.

Hi all,

I do not know anything about flying online so I will fly offline too.

Have good flights.

Freek.

...hmm, I didn't use JoinFS up to now, but Teamspeak is no problem.

Ok guys, for those of you unfamiliar to online flying, I'll set up a quick tut below for both JoinFS and TeamSpeak. Both are really easy to set up and use, but I guess that can also be subjective ;-).

For JoinFS, install and follow here: http://pmem.uk/joinfs/manual.html

 

After install, just follow the quick start and you're set. To link up, I suggest using the FSFlyBoys hub. If problematic just shout out via TS (tut following) for my personal IP to lock on to. The end result is that everyone can see everyone else in his flight, regardless of used sim.

 

For those who'd like to test with me, drop me a PM.

 

edit:

For TeamSpeak, just get it at teamspeak.com if not done already. You can set it up for any kind of microphone, and I suggest you use a "push to talk" or voice activated setup.

The server I normally use is detailed in the pic below (yes, it's German). Upon logging in you'll come into a welcome lounge, after which we can take one of the Treffpunkt lobby's to do our talking to eachother in. We can use it for chitchat, our flight progression, of even appoint a tower/ground for Paderborn.

 

Again: for those who'd like to test first, drop me a PM.

Hello everyone,

 

I have been flying around the world with you all but due to real life getting in the way I am a little way behind, well make that a lot, I'm currently in YHID - Horn Island in Northern Australia having so far completed 75 legs in my faithful Q400. I do intend to keep flying the legs when I can get back into it but I will not be joining in on the final flight. I've really enjoyed reading everyone's trip reports though and learning a lot about my plane on the way.

 

Kind regards and blue skies to all!

Well, it must be confessed that someone was confused about time (thinking 19:00 was the departure, not arrival).  So, a big thanks to my friends for patiently waiting the minutes for my arrival, that was so special.

Our last flight. online this time. Me, Gernot, Axel and later Dale joined in on JoinFS and Teamspeak, with Dale having TS issues due to mic problems, but we could chat so all went well.

 

I loaded up my Mustang in front of my own house and hangar at EAFS. Startup was easy enough and I taxied via the airpark to rwy 27.

Meanwhile Gernot started up his Airbus and came in from the other end of the field. Waiting a little with all cooling vents open so as to not overheat the Merlin I took off just as Axel logged on from LOWI Insbruck. With clearance I took off, Gernot close behind me.

I took on a direct VFR course towards EDLP, using skyvector.com as my prime referential for landmarks. Sure enough I encountered the ones I noted down: airfields left and right, rivers and bridges, power stations and the like. Meanwhile Axel was getting over the Alps while Gernot got into a holding pattern to wait for Axel.

Around halfway the weather seemed to turn. Clouds became thicker and lower and the sun began to set, making the whole flight somewhat darker. I turned on my panel fluor lights for better reading. Axel was closing up on me and Gernot was mistakenly still in his holding pattern so started to pursue Axel. At this time Dale began hun startup at LOWI.

With clouds becoming ever more a hindrance, a quick glance in ASN weather map showed the latter part of the journey and subsequent landing were going to be "fun".

In the meantime both Axel and Gernot landed on the ils of rwy24 at EDLP. I set up a left hand circuit based on my gps, with visibility a mere 5000m and a ceiling of 500ft. Tuned in my ils for good reference but in the end I did not have to use it, using my gps as a guidance and catching the runway well in advance to make my final landing in this tour a good one.

After that a shutdown and parked between the 737-800 of Axel and the Airbus 320 of Gernot. We waited some 20 minutes to hail Dale in, chatted some more and made some group pics. We've done it! The Mustang, having had an overhaul before we went underway, has clocked 199.8 hours to circumvent the world and a lot of continent contours. I had a blast, thank you all!

Hi Dale,

it was fun to fly with you, Axel and Toby the last leg of the Aerosoft Worldtour 2015 online.

Unfortunately we could not talk nor listen to you, but Toby informed us about the ongoing written communication between you and him. But it was great watching you arriving at Paderborn an taxying in the dark night to the gate.

 

Toby thanks for the pictures. I have only three screenshots from this final online leg which I took with my mobile (bad quality!). I accidently changed in the last minute the folder to save the pictures, so snapper.exe was in the background constantly asking for the proper destination but did not save any picture.:mellow:

 

Parking at the gate in Paderborn next to Toby in his Mustang. Axel was invisibly parking behind the Lufthansa B737.

We turned on all availables lights to welcome Dale in his A320, watch for Dale's red/green navigation lights. ;)

And finally another view of Toby's picture above having all four of us together.

In the middle my A319 GAF 15-01, on the right edge Toby in his Mustang, and above the A319, are two shadows - to the right is Axel's B738 and to the left Dale's A320. :D

Well of course I was not satisfied with such a poor outcome with respect to pictures. Therefore I did a second flight after leaving the online session. I will post these pictures soon.

Leg 130 - LOWI - EDLP

 

A pretty uneventful flight. We left Innsbruck from runway 26. I'm using the beautiful P3Dv4 compatible beta Orbx Innsbruck scenery (sorry, Aerosoft lol) . We flew via Stuttgart and Frankfurt. We took the ILS approach for runway 24 at Paderborn. I would have loved to have used Aerosoft's Paderborn. I have it, but I'm reluctant to install it into P3Dv4 in case it messes things up. We parked at stand 3 at a very quiet Paderborn.

 

A few weeks behind everyone else, but I made it at last. Thanks everyone for sharing what has been a very enjoyable 18 months. Looking forward to the next tour.

Welcome back, Neal.  Come in an' have one on us.

 

I only can support this warm welcome! Meanwhile even the Summer is leaving here. Luckily here the announced storm didn't really appear here (not comparable with those Caribbean monsters), but it's rainy and the temperatures will drop below my personal a-T-shirt-is-sufficient-border (yeah, I'm mollycoddled :unsure:). Usually it's for me the right moment starting the FS Winter-season.

However, our ways may cross again.
