Hello inhabitants of IFC, it’s summer time in the Northern hemisphere, and I’d been scheming for awhile now on making my own event (something I wanted to try and do over the last 6 years I’ve been on this forum).
The location on where was straight forward, since I had come to the unanimous conclusion to house it at Medford Rogue Valley International Airport, an airport I am biased towards since it’s local to me. That and I don’t expect a huge turnout, so a smaller airport seems fine.

I’m not going to be doing a gate assigning system, instead you’ll show up with whatever aircraft and route you chose, with a gate that (hopefully) fits. See the gate info thing below.
Gate Information To Base Your Flights Off Of
Gate 5 and Gate 6F are the only ones that handle A319 and bigger. I suspect competition for who gets it. If there is high demand, once one user pushes back, then another can spawn in their place.
For reference, the largest aircraft we get regularly is the 737-900. There also aren’t scheduled international flights right now, even though “international airport” is in the airport name…
Alaska Horizon / Alaska Skywest
Gate 1B: Q400: Seattle KSEA or Portland KPDX (Alaska Horizon)
Gate 1C: Q400: Seattle KSEA or Portland KPDX (Alaska Horizon)
Gate 2: Q400: Seattle KSEA or Portland KPDX (Alaska Horizon)
Gate 3: E175: Los Angeles (Alaska Skywest)
Gate 5: A320: San Diego, Los Angeles, or Las Vegas
Gate 1A: CRJ7: Phoenix KPHX
Gate 5: 737-800: Burbank
Gate 6F: 737-800: Burbank
Delta Connection (Skywest)
Gate 4: E175: Seattle KSEA or Salt Lake City KSLC
United Airlines / United Express (Skywest)
Gate 5: E175, 737-800 or 737-900: San Fransisco KSFO (737-900, -800, or E175) or Denver KDEN (737-800)
Gate 6B: CRJ-200: Los Angeles KLAX
Gate 6F: 737-800 or 737-900: San Fransisco KSFO (737-900, or -800) or Denver KDEN (737-800)
Another Do Note: Gates 6A-6E aren’t as utilized, and you can show up in any of the regional jet listings above. You may also be able to cram in a A319 or bigger in these gates, but I highly recommend against that due to the wings sticking off into other gates.
You can use any of the Cargo Aprons, and we get FedEx C208s and ATR 73s from Portland (you could always substitute the ATR for a generic Q400)
We also receive Ameriflight E120s, but we don’t have those in game.
It’s basically free range with GA. C172s, TBMs, SR22s, whatever, we got luxurious amounts of GA spots.
If you like, we have the only 737 BBJ in a several hundred mile radius (use Transient Parking 1 if you want it)
10-Tanker DC-10s run in and out of here during late July, and August to fight fires in Oregon and Northern California. You can spawn in the Cal Fire ramps, and taxi across the runway to this larger parking area, where the DC-10s park at (since there’s no spawns there)
USAF T-38s stop by here, but you can use an F-16 instead. I don’t know where they park, since they’re very elusive (the “T” in “T-38” must stand for elusive) and I can never seem to catch them.

There’s only one operational runway, and that’s 32/14. It is expected runway 32 will be in use, but it’s too early to tell.

Again, the event will be held on Expert Server, at KMFR, with a start/push back time of 1800z.
ATC will be provided by:
If ATC cannot be had on event day, use Unicom appropriately.
A PM group chat thing will be made roughly a week prior that I’ll add those who register below as “going” or “interested” so that way I can kinda knock on your door every once in awhile to remind you this is coming.
I hope to see you there!
I am not to blame for any violations of any kind or other negative actions against your account.
It was very warm out when I made this, there’s probably some grammatical errors somewhere.

~This is my first fly-out event, if there’s any formatting issues or other errors with this topic let me know, but I think this is correct~
