Server: Expert

Airport: FACT to FAOR

Time: 1900Z/2100SAST

*Good day fellow pilots.
We at SAVA are celebrating our 1 year anniversary.

We’d like to invite all pilots to join us with our celebration flight from Cape Town (FACT) to the operating hub Johannesburg (FAOR). With so many other airlines flying from FAOR its the perfect opportunity to fly from FAOR to your home town or your VA’s hub after we’ve landed.

It’s been a tough year for the VA. Most VA’s don’t survive the first year in IF but we have. What makes us even more special is that we are the only African VA in the entire Infinite Flight world.

Come and celebrate our anniversary with us as we take Africa to the world and bring the world to Africa!

Take off from FACT is at 1900z/2100sast
Please spawn in 15min before departure for photoshoots.

Flight profile
Departure from FACT will be straight out of the ILS cone. Please wait for the aircraft ahead of you to be off the runway and in the air before announcing take off and entering the runway. This will create a space of 5-8nm on departure. We will then activate NAV and join the flight plan.

Runways in use will be announced closer to the time due to lack of a weather forceast but both runways will be in use for landing at FAOR.
