29AUG20 / 1300Z/1500Z/1700Z - Sun, Sea, & Sand! @ Many Airports

image

Hello! ¡Hola! Olá! And welcome to Sun, Sea, & Sand 2020!

About The Event
The event is all about one of the busiest air routes in the world. That being flights from the UK to Spain and Portugal. This event focuses on airports along the wonderful coastline of the Iberian Peninsula, and all of it’s islands. From Bilbao to Tenerife, Madeira to Alicante, there’s tonnes of variety. Many airports will be featured, both in the UK, and our destinations! You can find a list of them below. This event is slightly different to those you may be used to, but should be fun anyhow. So, as the skies of Europe, and indeed the world, start to reopen to us, let’s get cracking! Hopefully this will be as good as I hope.

Why This?
Well, like said, the route is extremely busy. With the most popular summer holiday destinations from the UK being in Spain and Portugal - especially on the coast -, it allows for huge variety in aircraft, airlines, routes, and scenery! Want a nice simple approach with a simple ILS? No problem, try Faro! DME arc? Yup, got one of them; Alicante will do great for that! Want a challenging approach? Well, we have one of the world’s most infamous airports: Madeira Funchal! Yes, this event is slightly different to those you may be familiar with, but it should be nice anyhow!

Date & Time
Wave One: Saturday, August 29, 2020 1:00 PM

Now, How’s This Gonna Work, then?
Basically, below is a list of airports. Please pick your departure airport, and your destination. There will be three waves. You’ll also need to pick your airline and aircraft type. Please be as realistic as possible. I am happy to suggest a route if you would like.

Note: London Heathrow (LHR/EGLL) has not been included to try and stop everyone from using the same airport. I mean, you can still fly from there - I can’t shut down Heathrow - but not as part of this event.

To sign up, please reply to this topic, stating which wave you want to bea part of, your departure airport, arrival airport, aircraft and livery. Like said above, I’m happy to suggest routes! I am also working on a list of destinations and airlines per departure airport. I have finished the list for London Stansted (STN/EGSS), and as they are finished, they will all be added to the list Here.

More gates/airports/waves will be added if demand requires it. Although I highly doubt that.

If you have one you’d like me to add to the list, feel free to suggest it! I haven’t included BA for the same reason as Heathrow above.

NOTAM

The event will take place on the expert server. This means you have a responsibility to fly professionally, safely, and respectfully. This means no taxiing through others, flying at 90000 million miles per hour, etc etc. You are to follow all the rules of the server at all times. Anyway, you heard it all before so, I will get on to the more interesting stuff. Spawn in 20-30 minutes prior to departure to get everything ready. I recommend either simbrief.com or fpltoif.com for getting your flight plan. Maintain safe separation. Further NOTAMs and finalised information will be sent in a/multiple group PM(s). And… HAVE FUN!

Poll

On a scale from 1 to 10 - 10 being the best - how would you rate the event?

@Marcel001 ok so you have a few options. Ryanair don’t fly EGSS-LXGB IRL. So you can…

  1. Fly Ryanair on that route anyway - which I would prefer you didn’t, but I don’t mind
  2. You could fly Ryanair to Malaga from Stansted - which I know isn’t quite what you’re looking for but is more realistic
  3. I can suggest / you can choose another route
    Shame because Gibraltar is beautiful 😍I tried to find routes from all the departure airports

So I could fly easy!

Sorry, I’m slightly confused on what you want to do. I am still unable to find any realistic flights from Stansted To Gibraltar. You could fly from Luton (EGGW) on an easyJet A319. Although, as Luton isn’t in the event list, I wouldn’t be able to sign you up. You could still fly at the same time though on that route.
You could fly from Stansted to Gibraltar. But like I said, that wouldn’t be realistic. Ordinarily, it would be fine. But
I have received some feedback about realism on past events.
Or, I am working on a suggested routes section of the thread. So, you could wait for that, and take your pick from there.
The only other option I can find is to fly to Malaga, which is quite close to Gibraltar.
Sorry for all this :)

I am working on a list of airlines and destinations per departure airport to make choosing a route much easier. Hopefully, this will make it easier to pick your route.

Okay, I’ll wait for the Suggested Routes.

List Of Destinations, Airlines, And Respective Aircraft Types

NOTE: if multiple airlines and aircrafts are used, each are in the respective order. e.g. if Jet2 is listed first (on a 757), and Ryanair is lised second (on a 737), the aircraft will be listed in the order of 757, 737. Hopefully it makes sense when you see it. I currently have finished with the list for Stansted,and still working on the rest. I will post them all here as they come.
Oh, and I have tried to get every route I can find. But, if there is one I am missing, feel free to suggest it and/or sign up for it.

Fact About Our Destinations

Each day, I will be posting a random fact about one of our featured destinations. Today, it’s Tenerife. The flag of Tenerife is actually, believe it or not, the same as that of Scotland, 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
This is because St. Andrew is the patron saint of the island. On Tenerife, he is known as San Andres. I thought this would be better than just you average bump reply.

Fact About Our Destinations

I have two facts today! One you already probably know, but, yeah.

Today’s featured destination is Madeira!

  1. Madeira Funchal has one of the most challenging approaches in the world. If you don’t know about it, you can look it up. But, basically, you have to turn nearly 180° at low altitude, and if you overshoot that turn you’ll end up on the side of a mountain. It also must be flown manually, and is a captains only landing.
  2. Madeira Island has the largest firework display in the world. Bet you didn’t know that!

See you tomorrow! And of course feel free to sign up :)

Did you read the event details and/or the NOTAM?

Fact About Our Destinations

Today we come to Menorca
So, what source do you have with your food? Barbecue? Ketchup? Mayonnaise? Well, did you know Mayonnaise originates from Menorca, in the mid 1700s. The largest city on the island is Mahon. If you say Mahon properly, you’ll notice it sounds like Mayonnaise.

oh, and please sign up :) kind of struggling to fill the gates here

Also, side note: the list of suggested routes is coming. I got very busy IRL unexpectedly.

Two Weeks To Go!

Well, with only two weeks until the event, and still no sign-ups, this could very will be cancelled. I would like to run a poll to find out why people haven’t signed up for feedback.

So, why have you personally not chosen to sign up?

  • Not interested in this event. i.e. the location
  • I don’t understand the purpose of the event
  • I can’t make that date/time.
  • I have signed up for another event at this time.
  • I am waiting for some more suggested routes
  • Other (state below please)
