(45 Minutes!) [6 Attending!] The La Palma Landing Competition! @GCLA - 242100ZNOV19 // My First Event!

The La Palma Landing Competition!

Hello, and welcome to my first event! To start off, I’d like to thank everyone who helped me become a member, and that they enjoy their flights in our beautiful Infinite Flight!

Now, let us get to what you came here for: The La Palma Landing Competition!

The Approach

For this landing competition, we will be following the scenic approach beside the hills in La Palma. The approach consists of a quick turn towards runway 36 and a long approach parallel to huge rocks and hills only a couple thousand feet away, you end the approach with a slight turn away from a large hill located to your left and then barreling down the 7,000 foot runway.

For more information on the approach, I recommend watching this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZ1Zbb-5bvg&t=39s

Can you fix your title? Its incorrectly formatted as of now.

Yeah, I’m getting that done right now

@GearDownAviationYT the title should be 242100ZNOV2019

I can be tower/ground or a judge. Whichever you would like me to be.

Got it done, don’t worry!

The time in the title and the time on the thread are different.

Oh, thanks for the help!

I can be Air traffic controllers if that’s okay?

Sure, which one? Approach, Tower, or ground?

According to the thread, the title should say 2100Z

Your choice, depends on if you want to be able to judge all the landings, or if you would like to help them safe along the approach!

Sorry, sorry, sorry! I keep on using the wrong time zone!
