11.11 FLIGHT DETAILS
We will start our flight on the south apron of runway 25 at the famous Leonardo Da Vinci airport (LIRF) on the ocean coast not far from Rome, Italy.
With Elaine as our tour guide, we will be flying south for our first landing on the Ostia beaches. From there we head inland to Albano Lake and the Gandolfo Castle. This area is where famous wines are made like Frascati. As we proceed further north-west, we arrive at Tivoli, home of great wine and marble quarries.
We proceed into Rome, where you will be treated to some monuments of ancient Rome, newer structures, history and excellent visuals along the way. We will have two landing challenges, one in Circo Massimo (Circus Maximus) and another in St. Peter’s square in the Vatican. There isn’t much room for error on this landing.
We will finish our journey south following the Apian Way and land at Ciampino airport (LIRA) and possibly back to Leonardo Da Vinci (LIRA).
We will be taking the Icon A5.
Starting airport is LIRF. Please load your aircraft 15 minutes prior to take off and taxi over to the taxiway or parking.

It is advised in this flight to turn off both aircraft collisions and terrain collisions. If you do crash, you can use “slew” mode to join the pack. If the pack will be too scattered before the first stop, we will use slew on a defined point to regroup.
