Hello guys!

As you may know, last week Infinite Flight released their latest update including a completely reworked A-10.

This action packed event will include all kinds of challenging test maneuvers including low altitude object avoidance, tight formation, and even an engine failure landing! If you want to push the A-10 and your piloting skills to the limit, make sure to join us! Everyone is welcome! Just post below and we will add you to the list.

Flight Info

Flight Plan:

R1586 VOLOG GALKE FIVIB ROCQO WOBOY SQUEZ ECLPS BBALL CABOS AYZUT ECIFY JOPAV CEBIL AXESE SPLTZ NAIRB OBISE JOSUR KDMA

Vertical Takeoff: As soon as you take off from KDMA, pull up and try to climb to FL050 (5,000 feet MSL) as fast as possible.

Low Altitude Object Avoidance: desend to base level and follow the leader though the mountains and valleys in the white circle. Try to stay below 180kts.

Top Speed Test: Climb to around FL250 (25,000 feet AGL), put your engines to full power and do a steep decent to achieve the maximum speed of the A-10. Level off at FL100.

Agility Test: Here we ask you to turn off NAV mode and try your best to follow to sharp truns on the flight plan as best as you can. This will test the banking capability of the aircraft.

Tight Formation: Fly at 240kts at FL100. Try to fly as close to the other aircraft as possible in single file to test formation capabilities.

Steep Descent/Engine Failure: Cross fix SPLTZ at FL100 and then decend steeply to the runway. On about a 3 mile final, shut off your engines and attempt to land without them. Good luck!

We recommend practicing these maneuvers before the event. Listen to @AIDoLS on the event PM for more instructions

Thats a shame. I’ll take a gate anyway.

And by the way people will most likely want to use the full runway then ascend about 60 degree angle. I have tried vertical and you’ll just fall back to earth in a crazy spin. And in real life the engines would cut out.
