It is highly recommended that you download BOTH POI folders. You will be assigned one of two flight plans after arriving at Minot AFB. The POI markers are matched up with corresponding flight plans. (edited)
“Join when you can, leave if you must” is the philosphy when it comes to attending the FSB group flights. It is totally fine to arrive late and join up whatever leg we are currently on. Or even mid air! Voice channel highly recommended, even if you can’t speak, for breaks, and other info! We understand some people can’t chat cause of families, etc…
INSTRUCTIONS & RECOMMENDATIONS
For the POI markers, unzip BOTH folders and place both folders in your MSFS 2020 Community folder. The folder names are the same names as the zipped versions. The ‘team’ flight plans both return you to Minot AFB, which is where the mission ends, but the flight plan requires a final destination that isn’t the departure airport, so that’s why there’s a final leg to Minot Intl Airport a little further south that we won’t be flying.
Use the .PLN flight plan if using the stock VFR map. If using other software that will open up and access the LittleNavMap plan, use the .LNMPLN plan. Start the flight in your fighter jet using one of the “Part One” plans. I’ll assign everyone either the November or Oscar teams plan just prior to the break. Fly any jet fighter/helicopter you wish, but try to choose a military livery if possible. If you don’t have or can’t find one, choose a solid, dark color one, or camo livery. This is for better looking screenshots.
The helicopter flight during Part Two is a competition between Oscar and November teams. You will receive a mission briefing once you’ve mustered with your fellow teammates covering the rules of the competition. I will serve as Team Leader for one of the teams, and looking for a volunteer who’s a decent helicopter pilot to lead the other team.
