[Ended] Thomas Cook VA Landing Competition - 061900ZJAN18

Come and Join Thomas Cook VA for an exciting landing competition at Gibraltar International Airport. The airport is famous for its 4 lane highway which crosses its runway. The runway itself is fairly short, so make sure you don’t approach to fast! We will fly from Lisbon in the Thomas Cook 767 over to Gibraltar following the flight plan below. Further details will be posted closer to date of the event. Please do not use APPR!!

Server: Training

Starting Airport: Lisbon/Lisboa (LPPT)

Finishing Airport: Gibraltar International (LXGB)

Time: 1900Z

When: 6th January 2018

Aircraft: Boeing 767 (Thomas Cook Livery)

NOTAM: Spawn in at Lisbon a few minutes early so you can copy FPL

Your landing will be judged on;
Approach (was it steady and smooth? Or did you have to descend quickly to make sure you were low enough to land)
Centre Line
The landing itself (was it smooth, too aggressive, bumpy etc)
Technique (correct use of flaps, not deploying landing gear too late etc)

Each of the above will be judged out of 10 by our team, therefore leaving you with a score out of 40

For our members the prize will be extra flight time
1st place, 2hours added flight time
2nd place, 1hour added flight time
3rd place, 30mins added flight time

If you aren’t part of the VA join here below, or just come for the fun. If you are thinking of joining, winning flight time can give you a good “boost” to bettering your rank within the VA. More flight time means you will be able to fly more of the Thomas Cook fleet.


If you are interested in attending request a gate in the comments!
