(POSSIBLE) AUSTRALIA + NEW ZEALAND ALPINE TOUR.

Post by connect on Tue Sep 13, 2011 12:02 am

Hello,

Upon my return to regular FG-ing and Merlion-ing, I am proposing two tours of vastly different places. The alpine region on the south island of New Zealand (flying around Milford Sound, Queenstown, Cardrona etc.) and also a tour of a decided place in Australia. (Barrier Reef or Desert.)

Aircraft, route, time, date etc. can be decided at a later date. But, is anyone interested in such a tour?

Alright, it's settled! Merlion's next tour (the coming Sunday) WILL BE ORGANIZED BY CONNECT!

I've heard that place has some of the most beautiful sceneries in FlightGear.. Sam, can you get up a good route, and time? The tour should be on a Sunday and preferably the coming one as we didn't have a tour for the last 3 weeks.

I hope we can do this tour in a DeHavilland Twin Otter DHC6-300 as we bought 5 of them for our tours. Liveries available in merlion's download page.

And other than that, Sam what happened to your facebook account?

Alright.

Now I've been thinking on this so here goes;

Tour Name: Le Tour de Awesome.

Tour Group: Merlion Virtuals Tours Ltd. (part of the Merlion Virtual Group of Companies)

Tour Date; 18th September, 2011.

Tour Time;
START: 0400 UTC END: Unknown, will have a go myself to find out.



One tour will be divided into * 2 * sections, one for NZ Alpine, and one for the Ayers Rock Landing Challenge/Tour. + Shute Harbour Approach Tour.

Overview:

NEW ZEALAND:

NZ Alpine;
Takeoff on rway 29 at NZMF (Milford Sound) climb to -insert altitude here- and turn to a heading of 110. Proceed enroute to navaid "CRDRNA" where we will start our approach to the controlled airport, NZQN- Queenstown International. We will conclude our tour.

AUSTRALIA:

Ayers Rock Landing;
2 weeks later (FG time Very Happy ) our tour group have arrived in the middle of Australia. We will take off from YAYE (Ayers Rock Connellan) and turn towards Ayers Rock itself (YOU WILL SEE IT AFTER TAKE OFF !!!) perform a regular approach, and land ON TOP OF THE ROCK Very Happy Now, takeoff and land back at the airport.

Shute Harbour Approach Tour;
A few days later, our adventurous tour group have landed at Hamilton Island. They have asked us to take them to their final destination, the Airlie Beach Hotel ( 5 * hotel Wink ) so, we agreed. We'll take off on runway 14, climb to an altitude of 2000, continue for about 5 or so nm before making a right turn. Once close to land, make a right turn and approach the runway.

Basic overview:


Distances seem short on that as they are direct. Flight times will be longer than suggested on gcmap, through their being a group of us flying indirect routes.

REMEMBER THAT YOU _NEEEEEEDDDD!!!!_ TO HAVE A WAY TO NAV, be it in game map, atlas or the mpMap.

SCENERY TILES: e160s50 ; e130s30 ; e150s20 ; e150s30


Oh BTW, I de-activated my Facebook account.

Looks like you can do the NEXT event.

All parts of this event are made to a minimum so as the overall time can be shortened.

If you would like a longer NZ leg, you organize the next event.

Cheers,
