Airport: OTHH - NZWD (McMurdo Station)

Time: 1700Z

This is my first event so don’t be too harsh on your criticism. ;) Please be at your gates 5-10 minutes before.

Route (There might be a change however extremely unlikely. Please check back the day before the event to finalize.)

Aircraft - Boeing 777-200LR / Boeing 787-8 in “Qatar” livery. ONLY

Weight (Please make it exactly like this or you might run out of fuel. On the 787-8 fully load it with fuel and PAX and Cargo at 10,000kg each.


Mach Speed 0.84 (FL270 - FL320)
249 knots till FL100
349 knots til FL270
Cruise Altitude FL300 till “ITUVO” then after FL320 till decent.
Climb V/S - +3,000 till FL100, +1,900 till FL300 then level out till “ITUVO” after that +700 till FL320.
Decent V/S - At your discretion, start decent around 30 - 40 minutes(up to you) before ETE.

Gates (Will be using “C” gates only unless there is need for more space which then I will add the “B” gates.)
Also on arrival just park your aircraft on snow roads on the side and make sure not to cover the runways.

There is 7,428 nautical miles so expected time is 15 - 17 hours flying time depending on the wind.
Please let me know if there is something I left out and I will be happy to go ahead and fix it! :)

I would love to have a gate. 17 hours is too long mate. You may wanna reduce the flight time for people to attend. Change the origin perhaps?

So could maybe write what airport the destination is. I know somewhere in Antarctica but please be more specific.

Other than that, looks good! Good luck!

Wish I could attend this one

Its McMurdo Station (NZWD), thanks for letting me know.

Seems fun, will consider it. The only thing holding me back would be the flight time though!

Hmm, they probably will however it is a small airport so a A380 will be unrealistic. But I have edited to allow the 787-8, if you come will fully loaded fuel and PAX and Cargo at 10,000kg respectively.
