Hello all.

As you may have noticed, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is on the verge of being released. With this in mind, I have been thinking of something...

Why don't we do an inaugural flight?

I have spoken to a few people about it and can summarize what has been mentioned/advised. Please feel free to add anything in the comments as this is just an idea to get the group together!

1) The flight will be from : the island of Lemnos (Altis), the airport ICAO is LGLM.
                                
to    : The island of Agios Efstratios (Stratis).

As many might have known, Agios Efstratios does not have an airport and so I have devised this plan.

2) After departure we will track direct to Agios Efstratios and attempt to land, preferably on a beach. We will then admire the virtual wildlife before taking off and dumping our CO2 emissions in their face as we gracefully fly away and return to Lemnos airport.

3) The prefered aircraft would be a CubCrafters XCub as it is capable of STOL and is easy to use. It is also available to everyone who has purchased the game (it comes in the standard edition)

4) I would like to do the flight a day or two after the release as I understand people need to download the game and because it is very big (about 150 Gigs) it can take a while.

That's... well that's the plan.

This flight will be flown VFR. I would like to do an IFR group flight one day as well.

If anyone is confused about the flight plan, I will post a picture of the route + a tutorial from cold and dark to shutdown once the aircraft and flight plan is agreed by everyone (once all the changes are complete and everyone is happy).

Please PLEASE PLEASE feel free to add anything you would like from what type of aircraft to even a different flight plan or date!

VA when? I want to deliver mail enough to the denizens of Alaska in order to operate a 330.

Hello fellow aviators, I have gotten a few suggestions to do this event on Friday (21 August). Once again, please make suggestions if you can't/would like something else.

Goodbye avians.

I have discovered that my computer can not play the flight sim very well. I need a new graphics card!
