[COMPLETE]Hop across the pond in an A318 @ EGBB - 230930ZAUG18

Greetings fellow aviators!

A lot of us probably know about British Airways crossing the pond in an A318, but on the westbound leg, they stop in Shannon, Ireland to refuel. I wanted to unleash the full capabilities of this wonderful aircraft, and go for it without a fuel stop.

About the Event
We will spawn in at Birmingham International Airport in either the Airbus liveries, or the Infinite Flight liveries, set max fuel, and set off across the Atlantic Ocean towards Ottawa Macdonald Cartier International.

Note: these airports are not the most realistic, but I am using these to reduce congestion and to variate it a bit.

Yeah, as global came out it dramatically dropped. In the London region the busiest airports were EGKK, EGLL and EGBB. One of the longest routes you could do was EGLL - EGBB and it was extremely popular because every aviation fan knows what Heathrow is and therefore would be attracted to fly to there.

Totally agree. If you know any friends who would like to come I still have quite a few gates to fill 👍

I might have to move this to the next day, Thursday 23rd. Is that okay with you guys?

I think I might be able to make it I must check quickly

I can do it on the 22nd more likely than the 23rd

I will have to move it to the 23rd, it on the 23rd I can make it start anytime between 0800Z and 1100Z

Ok that’s probably better in that case if we can start earlier
