Gunpilot's Challenging Flights - "The Pitfalls Of Pinball"

Welcome to the 13th flight event in the Gunpilot’s Challenging Flights adventure series. This challenging flights event is located in the European Alps, and is again guaranteed to give you more of the heart pounding and sweaty palms experience that you have come to expect from Gunpilot’s flight events.

This flight is arguably the most challenging to date in the series and will really have you bouncing around in the cockpit. No more details as it would be a shame to spoil the surprises that this flight will deliver. But, as usual, you can expect a very difficult glide challenge that promises to test even the most experienced Grand Caravan pilots’ ability to stretch their glide all the way to the destination runway. As a final footnote, no amount of duc tape will save you in this flight if you have a habit of overshooting approaches or stalling your aircraft on landing…as the promo screen says…“Watch Out!”

When: Sunday 21st Feb @ 2330hrs UTC

Where: Alps

Flight Duration: Approx 3hrs (depending on numbers attending)

Aircraft: Cessna Grand Caravan (as always as flight planned around Caravan performance)

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

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

  3. Bring plenty of Duc Tape for running repairs

  4. Crash Helmets are optional, Prayers are advisable

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

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

  7. 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.
