NOTAM: What is up forum users!! IFPM back with our newest addition to our weekly events. It has been decided in IFPM slack and via private messages that many participates would like to have just a nice relaxing flight that does not involve many rules 😉. So without further ado, I am introducing the first in our Real Flight Events. They it’ll happen every two “entertaining and creative” events. This way, if you do not like having to remember lots of rules and such, you are more than welcome to join us on our every third event which will just be a relaxing flight. I hope this is met with enthusiasm as it has been highly requested :).
I’m not sure how many are aware, but golf legend Arnold Palmer sadly passed away September 25th. Many may also ask what a golf legend has to do with aviation.
That link will help make more sense then I ever could. Basically, he was a huge aviation enthusiast. He owned his own CCX and flew it often.
Event will begin in KTPA with the selected gates below, the flight will be Arnold Palmer’s final flight, which he completed in the CCX down the coast of Florida before landing in Orlando (or in our case Miami since we don’t have Orlando). We will be tracing his final flight he ever made, and arriving in Miami International. Below is the flight plan we will be using.
Here’s a little word from Arnold himself on aviation:
“I approve this message…simply because it’s true” my new favorite quote of the week.
Thanks to @Flightfan84 for the amazing idea for an event.
If you are interested in participating, just put yourself below and I’ll make sure to add you on this memorial flight in honor of one of the greatest golf and aviation legends.
SPAWN at said airport. Upon takeoff cruising altitude is 25000 feet. Speed should not increase beyond speed violation, obviously.
