  1. Guys, Just to let you know there is a major feature on Andras Field in the forthcoming issue of PC Pilot Magazine. A review and overview of the field written by myself along with the official video on the coverdisk. Hey, maybe I should apply as Publicity Manager when I get back from my surgery next week Seriously, I hope that it helps bring more pilots to Andras Field and helps spread the word. JaneRachel
  2. Hey Gang, Due to an urgent family committment, Craig is not able to judge the contest until 9PM UK time, 10PM CET. Competitors are welcome to practice as much as they want over the field until judging commences JaneRachel
  3. that is 1 in the afternoon, Eastern US time. all the best JaneRachel
  4. Bernhard, just had a couple of people here in the UK test it on IE8, and it doesnt display fully? This is what I see on my machine. Great VA incidentally! Such a superb idea all the best JaneRachel
  5. this is a great idea, lets do that!
  6. Hey Gang, Just to confirm, the aerobatic event is scheduled for this saturday 14th Aug, from 7-10 European time, 6-9 UK time. You can do one of three things:- 1) Just turn up, watch, have some fun and fly some circuits if you want after the competition 2) Be a competitor. Feel free to fly a plane of your choice and do some aerobatics over Andras Field and be judged as part of the competition. Entrants, please could you register by putting your name here in this thread 3) Do aerobatics but ask not to be judged on them, if you do not want to be an official contestant. Again, I stress this is open to everyone, no obligation to fly. Free entry to the server. It is all very friendly and informal! Everyone is welcome! The aerobatics competition will be judged by a couple of judges to be confirmed (not me, as I am going to be helping out on the ground). Craig Hobson, our online Manager is a confirmed judge at this time. Now for the exciting part, the winner will receive, a free download copy of the newly released Addictive Sims Pitts Special (it received the Avsim gold star and was rated alongside PMDG and RealAir for quality). As the winner you will receive this aircraft absolutely free for both FS2004 and FSX! See you Saturday!
  7. and don't forget the Addictive Simulations Pitts, which has just been reviewed by Avsim in the last week or so as one of the best ever aircraft in FS! www.addictive.it/pitts
  8. Hi Jan, It was a deliberate plan not to organise anything specific for last weekend. The reason was that it was open house to get used to the server and being online. In fact, Craig and the guys were great dealing with helping a lot of people get their equipment set up, which was a major part of the aim. As we go forward there will be more structure, but I felt this would have got in the way on Saturday, which was a come to Andras and say hi kind of event. all the best JaneRachel
  9. Hey Mike, We will always meet at Andras Field, unless otherwise stated all the best JaneRachel
  10. Hello All, I would like to thank all of you that attended our first event last night, which was an unqualified success. From the feedback received, everyone who was able to attend really enjoyed it! Thank you to our Online Director Craig and the VAE people who worked very hard last night to help make things go smoothly! It is very much appreciated. For those of you who were unable to attend, we hope to see you next week, as you are very welcome! see you at Andras Field JaneRachel
  11. I look forward to seeing you there! JaneRachel
  12. Hi, Just to confirm it is on the VAE server. The info for registering is in a separate thread here in the events forum. all the best JaneRachel
  13. Hey Gang, For those wishing to take part in the community events, please be aware that we will be using the VAE server.If you haven't already, please register on the Virtual Aviation Experience website to get access to the server! http://www.virtual-aviation.org Once registered you will need to download the pilot client software. Don't worry, it is easy and even I was able to do this successfully and connect to the server. Ray and Robert at VAE are also on hand here to help out anyone with an issue. This is really important as you need to register and download this piece of software to gain access to the server. This is a once only thing. Once you are setup, you are good to go for every event! It is also completely free, which is my kind of price! all the best JaneRachel
  14. Hi Paul, If I remember rightly, I wrote the Cheyenne review too. It is certainly one of the aircraft that I still like to fly. As Deputy Editor of PC Pilot I get to fly just above every released aircraft and I only keep the real standouts on my hard disk. The Cheyenne is in that list. all the best JaneRachel
  15. thanks Ray, file downloaded! Now to set it up PS Please check your VAE email as I have just got in contact. I feel a Catalina at Andras sort of afternoon coming on after setup! Thanks ever so much JaneRachel
  16. Ray, I registered at VAE, got my account back really quickly (thanks for that!) However, when I follow the instructions for connection and trying to download Squawk Win, when I click the download link in the instructions I get:- "Sorry, this area is non-existent or unavailable" Any advice please? many thanks JaneRachel
  17. I flew the Twin Otter for PC Pilot magazine review, fell in love with it and keep on flying it! Ditto for the BeaverX, which I also reviewed. Both are very treasured aircraft in my hangar. No, I am not on commission for Aerosoft, but I have to say if you are wondering about getting the Twin Otter it is such a great aircraft to fly in the sim. Highly recommended!
  18. You will have to remember guys that I don't drink alcohol (I cannot get on with the taste of the stuff), so would someone please remember to bring chocolate milk for me? JaneRachel

  20. I have no problem with the C-130, Vampire aircraft or any other using the field. If you can fit it on the runway safely, you are welcome to fly your warbird in! It just has to be, well, relatively old, hence vintage The C-130 has been around a while so it just gets away with it I will plan an event for us all! In addition, I will sit down this weekend and work out a structure for this little mini club at the field Any ideas are gratefully received all the best Jane
  21. I totally concur with how this is panning out. I think the easier the taxiways the better, so the more we can simplify, whilst still avoiding all the issues works best for me take care Jane
  22. yep landed both safely. I will do it again and grab some pics. Even with the elevation, there is stopping room for a lightly loaded heavy all the best JaneRachel
  23. yep I consider these mini events. What are you doing Ole thanks Bernhard, I have had terrific fun today flying around the area in the Catalina puddle jumping in and out of lakes! I really enjoy these little missions you are sharing with us all! Thank you! all the best JaneRachel
  24. you two have now got me wanting to mess around with flying the MD11 and 747 into the field! There was I, planning a quiet night in front of the tv and look what you have done to me )
