FLIGHT DETAILS

Join us this week as we do a group flight with the creator of Bushtalk Radio - an awesome mod to listen to audio recordings about POIs along your flight! We are excited to fly around a few of the islands in Indonesia and learn about its history. He says,

“I chose this flight plan as the area is beautiful and full of interesting tidbits along the way - first we’ll fly over Komodo Island (home of the Komodo dragon) and then make our climb to Mount Tambora and learn a bit about the 1815 eruption and how it changed weather patterns around the world.”

AIRCRAFT

Recommended aircraft: One of the quicker propeller planes (140KTAS+), with a good climb rate as we’ll need to go above 9000ft at one point to clear Mount Tambora, such as the Beechcraft King Air 350i

We will be starting at WATO. Please load your aircraft 10 minutes prior to take off and taxi over to the taxiway or parking.

MULTIPLAYER SETTINGS

COMMUNICATION

To communicate with others, a voice channel on the "Official Microsoft Flight Simulator Discord” at https://discord.gg/msfs will be available to join.

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.

Bushtalk radio is pretty cool to use, you can even set it to talk on your smartphone, as if you were at the museum :smile:

Start time is 1900Z!

Hello Simmer pilots
Thank you for letting me fly with you.
Unfortunately, I damaged my Spitfire on landing.
The corruption is not deactivated in the options for me. So after a crash I have to think about what I did wrong.
I look forward to the next time with you.
