The Indian-Pacific Wing Race is only one day away as of the time of this writing.
To record your race results, please post your landing time (in UTC/Zulu) and a link to your simair.io logbook in this thread. Your official completion time is when SimAir logs a “Parked” event in YSSY, as shown in the screenshot below. The deadline to submit your completion time is 2359Z on Wednesday, April 7.
Here is some important last-minute information about flying in the race itself:
Start time: Wheels up at exactly 8am local time in Perth, Australia. Please use this countdown website for the official start time in your time zone. Do not take off early or you will be penalized.
Server: Everyone must fly on the home server of the departure airport, in this case Southeast Asia.
Leaderboard: Community member InTheBlueYonder has created a website that pulls SimAir data and displays everyone’s position and remaining distance in real-time. You can track your position in the standings at gorace.net.
Discord: If you would like to chat with other race participants, feel free to use my Discord server. I have created two voice channels, one for people who don’t mind their voice being livestreamed to Twitch/Youtube/etc. and one for people who want to communicate in private. I highly encourage everyone racing to join one of the chat channels. During the Cannonball Run a few months ago, everyone said this was a great way to enhance the camaraderie of the event and make new friends.
Questions: If you have any questions or need a rule clarified during the race, the best way to reach me is to post your question in the chat of my Twitch channel. Since I’ll be flying the race myself, I won’t be checking this thread during the event.
Charity: While the goal of this race is to have fun with other members of the MSFS community, remember that we are also raising money for a great cause, the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Please donate what you can, and if you’re streaming your race, please ask your viewers to consider donating as well.
Streamers: the following people (listed here in alphabetical order) will be live-streaming their run. Please join their streams to cheer them on and keep them company during the race!
