MSFS Bush Pilots - New Zealand Trip! Queenstown (NZQN) to Manapouri (NZMO)

Good day everyone! Our next flight is going to be New Zealand, Queenstown (NZQN) - Manapouri (NZMO). 2020-09-05T06:00:00Z and 2020-09-05T18:00:00Z. Same event twice so as many people can enjoy the flight :slight_smile:

Our event will be Queenstown (NZQN) to Manaporui (NZMO). We will depart runway 23 and head straight south west where we will reach waypoint 1 (ANGUL) and and straight turning further south until we reach waypoint 3 (GULAN) where we will do a turn to right heading slight above west and then landing at Manapouri. This flight is over the beautiful mountains and scenery of New Zealand. This flight will be around 56 nm.

Please set your spawn to the ramp and not the runway thank you.

This is our flight plan

We will be communicating through my discord on the “Event Flight” voice chat.

For aircraft I’m changing it up to the Savage Cub as it’s such a beautiful piece of aircraft, however really any GA aircraft is fine for this event.

Cruise altitude will be around 2,500 feet however its not strict and if you want to change it up that’s up to you.

We will be flying on the West USA server for both times so ensure your server is set correct.

Give this post a heart if you do plan on coming <3

I have included a flight plan as well, to input the flight plan after downloading it, when your on the map in the sim you looking for the “LOAD/SAVE” button at the bottom (or you can press space by default) and then input the .pln
