English Electric Lightning T5.

FGUK's first full Dual Control Aircraft reaches its first public BETA release.

 

 

One of the most iconic military aircraft of all time, the English Electric Lightning was the first British aircraft designed for supersonic flight. Able to launch in under a minute, climb to altitudes in excess of 80,000ft and even overtake Concorde, its astonishing "rocket with a seat" performance and inimitable appearance have earned it a prominent place in the history of aviation.

In the package:

Lightning T5

  • Two-seat variant with full Multiplayer Dual Control
  • Rembrandt optimised
  • ENO improved audio handling
  • Enhanced FGUK view selection
  • Realistic FCS (Autopilot)

Saturday Flights

FlightNight 01 Oct 2016: Airport Taxi Runs

 

Timings and conditions: 8pm to 10pm UK local time. Departure will be at 8:05 pm. If you are late for the departure - for whatever reason - then you'll just have to catch up to fit into the schedule. Can't keep the customers waiting :) Weather core high pressure to be certain of being able to see the helipads and sim-time set for "Afternoon" (5pm local). Last drop-off will therefore be close to sunset. For the hard of reading, I'll write this again: departure will be at 8:05 pm UK local time.

Aircraft: Anything suitable from the FGUK public hangar, which pretty well means helicopters. If you want to turn up in something else, especially if you don't provide a link beforehand, then don't be too surprised if you get blanked/ignored.

 

Pick up and drop off at the custom FGUK-franchised landing zones . .

 

 

 

Scenario and route file available at:http://fguk.eu/Ramp/index.php/s/xEAXNPG0rlh3oxy/download

Try to stay below 500' AGL (unless landing on tall buildings) and don't cross any main runways if there any other MP pilots using them at the time. The helipads are more for guidance than for actually parking on - so please don't hog them. Move away slightly after your final approach to make way for others.

    • There are loads of things that I can do, but are slow, dangerous, inelegant and against my principles, so I don't. And I've even tried to fly an FG helicopter once or twice and survived. It's not that we can't, we just...
