I wish I could make this flight. I’ve been to Hope, B.C. for a Hockey Tournament years ago and flown into KORS for a fly in event before.

If I can get home soon enough I may try to roll somewhere near the group or wait at an airport along the route.

I am getting an error with the flight plan. Please can you list out all of the airports and waypoints

The plan is readable in a text editor.

Since I crashed my plane again…

i crashed twice, neither on landing, lol !!
first was that bumpy “runway”. thought i could go airborne after that first hump during takeoff. that was a bad assumption.
second, i taxied right into a tiny patch of water…fail.

great event, i’m catching up to everyone now. i punish myself for the fails by starting at the beginning and then catching up.

Great to have you and glad you enjoyed the flight! Next time, if you crash out, you can start from the beginning but slew over to us, that way you can keep the flight plan. You can slew with Y and F4 to pick you up. Use the num pad keys to move around.

That was a great flight with everyone.
V3ER planned an awesome route that showcased a great variety of southern British Columbia’s natural beauty. Well done! :small_airplane:

It was a lot of fun flying with you guys last night. It was my first community flight and it was great. Chaotic at times due to the sheer number of planes in the air or on the runway at once, but a ton of fun. Some great stories and great laughs were shared on Discord. I’m giving it a 5/5 rating!

Thanks to @SizzlingP6672 for setting this up, and thanks to V3er for leading us along this beautifully scenic route and providing information about each location we visited. It made the flight as interesting as it was fun and beautiful.

And of course, we can’t forget thanking the stunt pilots in the group (sorry if I forgot most of your gamer tags already) for the the shows of inverted flying, jet aerobatics in the Aeromacchi, and VTOL displays from playing with wind settings. It was highly entertaining!

Glad you enjoyed!

We’ve got some great flights coming up over the next couple weeks, which I’ll post the details in the upcoming days.

Glad to hear. I’ll try to join in with more of them. Most of the evening (my time) flights always seemed to land on clear nights here. My other hobby is astrophotography, so when I have a clear night I can get out, I’m out taking pics. Now with winter on our doorstep and weather in this region of Ontario not being very conducive for astrophotography in winter, I’ll be available more often. I look forward to joining you guys more often.
