The usual times for onlive fun and frollics 1900 UTC onwards ;)

But Matt. Are we to fly this challenge together? or individually? If the latter, then how do we document it? it will be pizz dark as usual at these hours (Oh come July ye Might) so screens will be hard to see anything exciting on. sad.gif

I put my faith to a united flight, and Ill tail you all the way Matt - claiming excellent navigation skills afterwards - lol. (I only hope you dont lead me astray... blink.gif )

One way to go is to have everyone set their clock to 12:00, therefore, all will have the same weather etcetera. Just a thought.

Yea a good idea, but I think there might be a build in option in the online service that does not allow to change from real time.... Im actually not quite sure about this, but I think so. If NOT, then its an excellent idea so we do not always have to fly in the dark.

Failure.... Could not get the online thing to work. After I changed the wireless router, All the ports I once opened (with Help from Craig) was closed again, and no way I could remember how to do it. Ill need some help tomorrow to do that. :wacko:

Chompski,

mind that the original coordinates are incorrect.

Lat 48.21 is a bit too northly, 47.55 is safer landing-wise. But the original Lon 11.73 is impossible (every degree has 60 minutes, so .73 is not a valid longitude).

Matt corrected the Longitude in this thread after we spoke last night on TS.

OK, will do. Hope your get your system woes worked out. It was a shame I was the only one online last night, navigating my BushHawk XP around....

I made screenshots and a screendump of the in-FSX Flight Analysis, showing my route.

I didn't hit the first spot exactly because of low cloud cover and sail boats in my projected landing route. Apparently, there is a marina very close to that point, so had to go around blink.gif.

I hope I can join again next week (winter is coming back next week, so my RL job will also get busier again), maybe I'll take the Catalina then for added difficulty.

This weeks wednesday challenge:

Choose your favourite aircraft, and fly to grid: N47° 23.12' E9° 42.03' Now head off to N47° 51.53' E10° 00.87' Finally from our last grid ref fly a heading of 110° and tell me what landmark you come across.

Screen shots of you flight can go in this thread

I flew the challenge but didn't see the landmark on the final leg - visibility was lousy so quite possible I missed it. A clue as to how far from the second waypoint would be nice - then you know at what point to give up and admit you've missed it! Pics in the screenshot thread as soon as I can get them done.

Edit: can't get onto Photobucket so the pics will have to wait.

The landmark is roughly 30 nautical miles on a track of 110. No more clues though lol. And seeing as Luke managed it so quickly next week's challenge will be really hard :lol:

Righty ho then, this week's challenge which will run until next weekend. Hope your all ready for this...

Depart from everyone's favourite airport and fly to N47°44.10' E11°14.97'. From this position fly the 192 radial of the EUR VOR for 51 nautical miles. Then turn left heading 146°, after 30 nautical miles on that heading what are we overhead? From here fly to N46°32.07' E9°53.03'. What are you overhead? Now fly a heading of 001° for 65 nautical miles, then turn a heading of 090°. What navaid does this final heading put you on?

Assuming the semi circular rule what altitude should you be flying for the second and penultimate legs?

Good luck and I hope you radio nav is up to scratch, it should keep you busy for a good hour or so :lol:
