Welcome to the 64th flight event across both the Gunpilot’s Challenging Flights and the brand new series Whats The Plan?. This challenging Whats The Plan? flights event will be Legless In Belize , and is again guaranteed to give you more of the unique and challenging flight experience that you have come to expect from Gunpilot’s flight events.
This flight will be conducted in the rolling jungle hills of Belize, Sth America, navigating to and flying into 16 airstrips and/or bush landing sites located in this region of Brazil, and again the challenge is thrown down for all pilots to fly the route and arrive at the correct destination.
Pilots will just need to load their sim and log into Gunpilot’s server and join the Comms Radio.
You and all the other flight crew will then be provided with a starting airport code and the heading and distance to the first waypoint, then it will be up to your dead reckoning skills to find your way to each leg to arrive at the final destination. As you successfully identify and land at each waypoint a billboard will be waiting for you which will give you the compass heading and distance to the next waypoint…very simple, but a lot of fun as you are also competing against all the other pilots in the flight to be the first to reach the final destination.
And doing all this while “blindfolded”!!!
Gunpilot has also implemented a full ATC service within these flights and ATC advice to all pilots will be available along the way, especially assisting any pilot who has struggled to find a waypoint, and reducing cockpit workload to a minimum (that being to just fly each leg). ####To be able to fly this event you must be in the Comms Radio in Gunpilot’s Server otherwise you will not be able to hear the preflight briefing or be assited by ATC during the flight.####
