FGUK FlightNight for December 10 - New Zealand Fast Jet Cruise

08 Dec 2016 00:40 #31949 by Vodoun da Vinci


We will meet at UTC2000 at ICAO - NZNV - Invercargill for departure on RW22. Please bring the fast jet of your choice from the FGUK Hangar being certain that it might attain and maintain 12000' at 500 KIAS for a fair duration. We'll turn to 300 degress and climb to 12000 as the flight forms up and continue to Cooper Island where we will turn to 40 degrees. When we reach Jackson Bay we will turn and follow the coast line. Altitudes and exact headings to be announced- expect some "follow the leader" and Grab Ass.



At some point in our coastal foray we will turn abruptly to 90 degrees and fly inland where we will attempt to land at NZMC - Mt. Cook. I have not yet made this landing but they tell me it's possible. :woohoo:
Either way we will proceed at 40 degrees again to ICAO - NZNZ - Nelson for refueling and refreshment/fueling.

We will depart Nelson and proceed to NZCH at 12000 and play follow the leader. at the southern end of Lake Ellemore we will turn West to the mountains and then turn southerly towards Queenstown - ICAO - NZQN and then turn towards our point of departure at Invercargill/NZNV



Please gather the entire South of New Zealand and maybe practice the landing at Mt. Cook if you can. Please let us know what aircraft you intend on bringing and we hope to see ya'll there.

Nice! If I make it I'll be in the MiG-21bis - I'll post a zip file prior to the flight

Hopefully I'll be able to make this weekend's FlightNight in my Su-37. I've tried out Mount Cook and it seems do-able. Obviously the over-the-water-approach is for wimps though . . .



Try it on "Marginal VFR" weather setting. You don't get to see the airfield until you are within less than a mile of it and you get a crosswind of between 9-16kt. :woohoo:
