Group Long haul flight - Back to home from Dallas // KDFW - EFHK

image

Welcome to my fourth group flight on IFC. We flew previously from Helsinki to Rovaniemi, Copenhagen and Innsbrück. Now it’s time to head home from Finnairs newest long haul destination Dallas.

Join me for a group flight on Expert server at 2030zulu. We expect the flight time to be around 10,5-11 hrs. No separate registrations needed, just spawn in at KDFW latest 2025zulu. Copy flight plan from me (@Pilot_Aaltonen). I’ll be parked at gate D25 and looking forward to see you there. Group flight is open for all IFC pilots.

As always on Expert Server:
Respect other pilots and stay professional.
If ATC is active, please follow instructions.

And happy flight to our companion @Santtu, who wants to sleep couple of hours more on Sunday morning. He took the Emirates flight to Dubai instead.

I think I packed too much fuel and was over on final - started rocking and couldn’t easily control the plane…Would have gone around but was too tired!
