26MAY21 / 2200Z - Whacky Racing: Old School into Funchal @ LPPS


Welcome back to Whacky Racing! We’re happy you’ve chosen this event to let your weirdness, impressive inverted flying abilities, and all-around goofiness. If you’re new here, this event series takes us into the funny side of flying on Infinite Flight, allowing you to fly races and aircraft that might not otherwise go together. In this series, we’ll use everything from the F14 to the DC-10F, the A350 to the XCub, and a whole lot more!

This event heads to the infamous Maderia island, known for its exciting captains only approach with turbulent winds. This event is a simple A to B race, and we’ll be doing it in the old school B717! As you take off from LPPS, fly an anticlockwise route around the island. From there, fly over the ocean at or below 250ft until reaching Madeira. From there, fly over the island following the TFR rings, then fly the clockwise circuit around the island to land at LPMA.

Event Plan

  1. Spawn at LPPS or a nearby airport
  2. Fly around Porto Santo island
  3. Fly across the ocean to Maderia at or below 250ft foot
  4. Fly the route around Maderia
  5. Land at LPMA

Indeed it is.

The thing is…the 717 goes at like M1.1 and is quite speedy, until you stall randomly

Hmmmm interesting.

Question of the Day: How many people will land safely?

Good question. 🤔🤔🤔

Also Misha why….just why…and in the 717 as well…🤣

Cue everyone accidentally crashing into the Atlantic Ocean.

This whacky racing is going to be whacky for sure.

For anyone curious, here is the routing:

And we know it’s chaos when it’s casual server
When it’s not chaotic enough with the airport and 717
Probably the most epic group flight
