[CLOSED] USCG Virtual's Community Air Display & Assault Landing Competition @ PHNL 122000ZAPR20

United States Coast Guard Virtual is hosting a community landing competition and airshow! Come and show off your assault landing skills in a USCG C-130J. We are proud to announce that in addition to the competition, there will be a number of displays from various teams from the community!

Server: Casual

Airport: PHNL - Honolulu Intl. Airport

Aircraft: C130J (USCG Livery)

Date: 12 April 2020

Time: 2000Z-2230Z (event may run over dependant on number of attendees)

Have you been practising the art of the C130 assault landing? Come and show us what you can do in the beautiful archipelago of Hawai’i.

If you’re new to the concept of an assault landing, have a look at this handy video for how to master it. C-130 Assault Takeoff and Landing. You’ve got a few weeks to practise, so there’s no excuse for crashes!

This event is open to everyone in the community and is hosted by United States Coast Guard Virtual. If you are interested in joining us, please have a look at our thread for more details.

The winner of this competition will gain eternal bragging rights as the finest assault pilot in the community (and the offer of entry into USCG as a direct entry Chief Petty Officer - but I’m sure the bragging rights are the main appeal).

If you would like to participate, please ask for a gate below and tell us your callsign.

We hope to see lots of you there!

In addition to the landing competition, the event will also play host to a number of display teams - these teams will be announced in due course so keep an eye open.

If you are from a VA/VO that would like to fly a demonstration during the interval, please send me a PM. We’d like to see as many VAs as possible take part!

kidding of course, ill take WD40 as my callsign


You want to stop quickly, WD40 will surely reduce your brakes’ impact!

Add some heat to the grease and you’ll light them fires. Burn the rubber off, she’ll stop quickly.

Oh yes baby! Put me down
