Yes, very well done Andreas, excellent scores! And well done to everyone for keeping it going - it was a lot of work but I enjoyed it immensely. I'd like to think my flying is a bit better too! :lol:

Wow, I'm speechless! It took a loooong time to fly around the world, and for me it wasn't always easy to have the discipline to fly the next leg to complete the phase within time.

It has been a completely new experience for me to prepare each and every flight. Just sit in the plane and Take off wasn't longer possible. Proper Prior Preparation Prevents #### Poor Performance! How true!

Especially at the beginning of the world tour I had to do a lot of homework:

at the end of Phase 1, I found out that Mr. Smith also want have checked Aileron, Elevator, Rudder, Flaps and Magnetos. Also, the height to disable the AP is measured in AGL and not MSL was clear to me later.

But that's exactly the charm from our trip around the world: to learn and improve constantly. And that's why I enjoyed it very very much!!

:groupflip_s:

Don't get me wrong, but now I'm looking forward to fly my C185 through the bush. Without flight plan or route!

Doing some Crosswind landings like Jim Tweeto (Flying Wild Alaska). :big_boss_s:

Ole and Matt, thanks for your idea, your dedication and passion to get this Round The Worl Challenge on its feet!!

Many thanks to all sponsors who have supported us so great!

Thank you so much!

:grouprespect_s: :grouprespect_s: :grouprespect_s:

I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

I'm looking forward to tomorrow evening to fly with you all from LOWI to EAFS and would love to get to know you personally maybe on FS Konferenz 2012?

best regards

Andreas Welge

Congratulations Andreas, Gonçalo and Luke!! Fantastic scores everyone. The first round in the AFFC is on you.

And a great thank you to Matt, Ole! You did a great job organizing all this - and giving us a kick when necessary to go on. :D Thanks a lot also to the FSFS people and all the sponsors!!

Finally I would like to give my best wishes to my instructor Mr. Smith, who had to transferred to a closed psych ward after completing the RTWC with me. As far as I heard he is already improving and may be transferred to an open facility early next year. So let's see about the RTWC II when it comes along. ;)

Have a happy New Year everyone!

Congratulations to everyone for successes, perserverance and fellowship during the challenge.

It was great fun and it was great to have a purpose to my flying. I can't say I'll miss Mr Whittle (we're not speaking!). Now if only I could find someone to resurrect "Battle of the Airlines".

Is the last flight on the 15th still happening?

You won, the choice is purely your own :) If you chose to name it after yourself in hommage to your achievement that is fine with me, and really quite fitting.

As for spam..... Theres only one kind of spam at Andras Field

Ok Gentlemen

As I said in the other post (http://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/50992-christmas-celebratory-dc-3-event/page__pid__352217__st__40#entry352217 I would like to know it everybody got their prizes for phase 5.

AND - Andreas, you won the right to rename Taxiway Delta. Pick your name for it and it will be changed. Your chance to become immortal in Andras Field.

Anything goes - as long as its legal of course. I would not accept "Hitler Jugend avenue" for instance, and I am not even sure about "Richard Nixon street" :mallet_s: but I guess names like "Allen´s Alleyway" or "Gates gateway" would fit in nicely...

OR "Rover street" if you have a dog called Rover - or whatever... you get the idea, right? :big_boss_s:

Hello Ole,

I think that Andreas Ave in Andras Field could lead to some irritations. I prefer "Welge Avenue". As I taxied last weekend with my new PA46T Malibu to RWY26 to fly some circuits, a voice in my head that sounded like a navigation system said "in 100 yards turn right into Welge Avenue". And I thought to myself in a proud way: sounds realy cool!
