The Gatwick Flyout!

About Gatwick

Gatwick Airport, also known as London Gatwick, (IATA: LGW) (ICAO: EGKK) is a major international airport near Crawley, West Sussex, southeast England, 29.5 miles (47.5 km) south of Central London. It is the second busiest airport by passenger traffic in the UK, after Heathrow Airport. Gatwick is the ninth busiest airport in Europe… Read More On Wikipedia

Why Gatwick?

Well, it’s a base to many airlines, in the likes of - and although this is sadly soon to change - British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Ryanair, Easyjet, and many more!

Gatwick offers routes all over the world, from a short hop to Jersey in the Channel Islands, to long hauls to the USA! It has a nice long runway - and another one but we’ll get to that in a sec - and plenty of stands!

NOTAM

Now, about that other runway I mentioned. Well, as many of you will know, R26R/08L is closed due to it’s close proximity to the other runway 26L/08R! Aircraft may use it as a taxiway, and do not need to announce it’s crossing or request it from ATC. Using this “runway” as a runway will possibly result in ghosting - so basically, Don’t!. In addition to this, IFATC will be present during the event, so, as always, follow all ATC instructions, even if they sound silly, just do it. You can always ask why in a PM later. If Infinite Flight V20.1 has been released and therefore we have SIDs and STARs in app, we kindly ask pilots to use a SID on departure from EGKK. If V20.1 has not been released and therefore we do not have SIDs and STARs in app, pilots are permitted to use them, but just be aware other aircraft might not be using thrm. This is to ensure safe separation from both event traffic, other traffic in Gatwick, and other traffic in the London area. Pilots are responsible for making sure they are aware of other traffic that may bot be using a SID. No one else other than you is responsable for a ghosting - most likely. Of course, always feel free to appeal in the correct way.

Thanks to @GeorgeD for helping organise this event! You have been a great help and awsome co-host of this event! So, thank you! Also, thanks to @easyWig for sponsoring us!

You have to remember that it is a flyout on Infinite Flight, and some people host these for the fun and enjoyment. I understand one or two pointers but a list like you created just there is a little over the top, I’m sure the hosts would recognise it if you just stated one example and said ‘if you want to make this flyout more realistic, change this…’

Also, there will be a lot more traffic here than in real life, so flyouts can never really be 100% realistic.

I understand no flyout can be 100% realistic. Since I’m local, I get minorly triggered over any unrealistic bit. Sure, some bits would be made unrealistic for the fun of it, I get that. But sometimes more realism is more fun, at least in my eyes. This is not personally aimed at him and do not portray it as such. This was something that should’ve been taken to a PM anyways and I’ve withdrawn the post because of that. Forget about it.

I think there is many more things out there to get triggered over at the moment but both of these pilots have done a fantastic job on organising this event which we are proud to be sponsoring.

As stated it cannot be 100% realistic but we need to make it easy for everyone so they enjoy the event overall as it is just a mobile flight sim. This thread was made for users to sign up if they wish to participate. if you do not wish to sign up then you don’t have to comment on the thread.

I get that he put his time and effort into the event and I praised him for that. Then again, something to be taken into a PM and sorted there.

I’ve already signed up as a compromise. End of conversation now as people causing uproar over my criticism which should’ve been taken into a PM and already has been and been withdrawn is getting seriously under my skin. From now I’ll just publicly apologise as I was not meant to offend anyone at any time.

I did.
