26th nov, 8pm uk time.

This flight is for helicopters of a specific type:-
Lynx
Lynx wildcat
Gazelle
Puma
Tigre
basically, any type of helicopter named after a wild animal.
If you are bringing one that is not found in the FGUK Hangers, then please POST A DOWNLOAD LINK


The Flight plan:-

the Flight will take us up the Amazon River.
SBMQ - Start point
SBSN - End point.

We will be flying no higher than 500ft AGL and at a cruise speed of 120-135 kts following the course of the river.
About mid way into our flight we will carry out an off field landing. We will need to find a suitable tree free area to land on to refuel and refresh ourselves before continuing to the final destination.

All voice comms will be using TS3:-

I'll try to be there with the Gazelle. This will give me an opportunity to show everyone how not to pilot a helicopter ;)

Note that as downloaded, the Wildcat doesn't work on Linux (Instruments.xml ↔ instruments.xml)

Got my scenery gathered.Note to Dudes and Pilots - do not err to landing on the North side at SBSN. Stay to the South side of the runway as it is a *looooong* slip and slide down into the river if one gets too close to the North side of the runway. :pinch: :woohoo:

Just Sayin'....

Nice one, except I kept getting a popup dialog with the following message:
Error reading panel:
Failed to open file
(reported by SimGear XML Parser)

It looks like this is due to the Lynx (all variants appear to be affected). I suspect another case of case-sensitive filenames, but I couldn't see the problematic filename in the traces.
