C152 as the Asobo version has no autopilot or GPS equipment. Also, fying at 100knots, you can use the predetermined times and vectors for the wind (to be issued just prior to the event for best accuracy).
We will land at Coffs Harbour(YCFS) for a 10 minute break before continuing on to Balina(YBNA).
IMPORTANT: In the interest of keeping it REAL, please refrain from selecting inappropriate aircraft, like airliners. This only detracts from the immersion of the flight.
