Official rule book


Recommended Posts

The rules state "the first topic will contain your complete route."  I assume that this is a full listing of the individual leg starting and finishing airport identifiers.  You are not expecting intermediate navigational waypoints of each leg?  Once we have declared a routing, are we locked to only those legs or are we free to modify the itinerary as we proceed?

Hey there,

 

first of all, it sounds like a wonderful challange. :D

 

Three questions from me:

  • Real weather...well...FSGRW isn´t available for P3Dv4 jet, and P3D has no real weather function like FSX. Is there some good Freeware or an idea what I can do?
  • Is the Twin Otter a modern or a historical aircraft?
  • Where can I find the kmz files? :wacko:

 

 

I fly P3D V4.  I use Active Sky’s real weather. It works just like AS16 for FSX.

In P3DV4 I've been using the freeware FSXWX for weather. Works pretty well. http://www.plane-pics.de/fsxwx/instructions-p3d.htm

I just followed the instructions step by step for install. Happy for now!

Dear all,

indeed, a great challenge, looking forward to it :-)

Do I have to strictly adhere to the dates ? Bombay-Calcutta with 3 days during holiday season might be challenging if you are real-life traveling...

 

For clarification: is it historic or modern:

- Vickers Armstrong VC10

- DC8

- B727

- DHC6 really is modern ?

- C172

 

I assume the DC6 is historic, correct ?

 

Thanks,

Florian

When it says 7 days dose that mean that how long everyone has to do that flight and then each flight you give them 7 days to do that flight?

 

 

To stay in the story you will have to fly the leg in that time perios.

DC 6 is certainly historic.

I think we'll all be forced of our route at some point due to weather. So many old birds taking part that can't fly over big fronts.

Just a short question about a minor detail of the route. First of all as a child almost 20 years ago) I watch the cartoon version of the original story which is slightly different but as close as possible to the original - only names are adjusted and some minor changes in the story for children understanding. Just this summer ( if you can call it with all that rain here in germany) I watch it again with my children and they were fascinated. So I wanna try to do this challenge because they like it when I am flying on my simulator so I do it for them too.

Now back to topic:

In Hong Kong Passpartout and Mr. Fog are seperated. Passpartout goes direct to Yokohama while Fogg did an extra tour via Shanghai ( see in wikipedia for details).

Which "version" has to be redone? Hong Kong - Shanghai - Yokohama oder Hong Kong - Yokohama?

 

Regards

 

Jens

going to give this a try  here is a link to the original trip  http://kickasstrips.com/2014/06/around-the-world-in-80-days-phileas-foggs-original-journey/

 

So my question since I have not participated in one of these before  is how do we log our flights ??? Is there some logging software or is it strictly a honor system that we really fly these routes , If not on line Vatsim or Ivao will not have any record of the flights either .

I believe uploading some screenshots is and maybe writing a bit of a description will be good enough.

haha, I think I used up my screen shot quota on the previous round the world trip :lolsign_s:. I thought about using a DH Dragon Rapide, but it took forever on the Crete to Cape Town rally.

I may well join you, having just got back from RTW2015.

As the only airfield known to me is an old Airforce base (Al Kibrit, HE34) which is currently having its runways torn out and is now a whirlybird base only, I'm moving my landing point on Suez to Port Said, NE of Cairo.
