The Escort

The escort will begin at KFSO with an Airbus A380 Qantas. Each pilot attending must fly one of the listed aircraft in the section above to participate. Pilots are required to stay in the group through out the flight.

The Qantas A380 will be led by a Qantas Virtual staff member & will be position itself near the front or middle of the pack. Through out this journey pilots are allowed to come close to the A380. At exactly 1100Z the A380 will pushback from the park & begin the flight. Pilots are allowed to speed ahead of the A380, but remain inside the pack.

The flight plan will be provided by Qantas Virtual Staff. Now it might be the advanced server but reporting other pilots is not necessary unless there behaviour is not what a participant should be doing.

We can’t wait to see you all there!
