China Special- Yangtze River Special Event




Welcome to this special flight event. This challenging activity will take place along the mighty Chinese Yangtze River, including the Three Gorges Dam.

Have fun with other pilots from all over the world as we all do our best to land our caravan on some very unusual landing spots along river banks, mountains and even the Three Gorges Dam itself.

This event is one you don’t want to miss.

Cessna Caravan as all landing and other challenges built into flight are
tailored for this aircraft specifically

Turn Damage mode off as you will most likely suffer at least hard
landings if not full on crashes

Bring plenty of Duc Tape for running repairs

Crash Helmets are optional, Prayers are advisable

Embrace “SLEW” as it will be your friend by the end of the flight

Practicing to make Caravan landing approaches at IAS of between 40-50knts max will see you nailing difficult landings with ease and precision.

If you are new to these Gunner Downunder Challenging Flights, ensure you download the Caravan mod which can be found in the #Add-ons-and-downloads channel (mod is pinned to the top RHS of this channels screen) in Gunpilot’s Server. Download and extract into your Community folder and you will have the real life SUPPER 900 kit that is installed by Texas Turbine Coversions in the USA. Improved performance both in the air and on the ground.

Make it easy on yourself to navigate around the route and accurately pinpoint the exact landing areas by downloading and using the free “LittleNavMap” s/w you can get on the web - you will never open the standard sim VFR Map again once you have tried this fantastic app that integrates seamlessly with MSFS2020.

From time to time in Gunpilot’s flights there will be music tracks played. By right clicking on the MEE6 nametag in the Comms Radio section of the server you can adjust music volume to your liking.
