Friday Night Flight - Caribbean Prop Hop 2

This weeks FNF all servers event is a “do over” from an earlier event, and will begin 2 hours earlier. The Caribbean Prop Hop was a learning experience and somewhat an experiment. However there were a few issues that caused many pilots to be left out. So let’s do this once more but with less strictly enforced procedures.

Caribbean Prop Hop! A fun prop aircraft only, performing multiple touch and go operations at as many island airports as the pilot can perform. Flying low and fast from one island to the next in an orderly fashion. Or disorderly if you choose the Free Flight server.
There will be no NOTAMs this time. Just fly any prop powered aircraft under 500 feet (AGL) as fast as you can. Fly to as many airports as you can in any order you wish. Perform touch and goes at each airfield visited. If you have the endurance, try to touch every airport in the region.

Take pictures and enjoy the ride.

All servers are welcome to follow the same tour instructions at a less strict pace.

NOTE - Earlier start time!! In addition to previously extending the FNF we will now also welcome you to begin 2 hours earlier.

16 full hours to join and enjoy this event.

NOTAM: None.

An ALL servers event. You can choose your level of participation by selecting the server you want.

Awesome, i missed the last one. Im sure i am not going to miss this one

Two questions:

  1. Just to be sure to confirm meaning of ‘as fast as you can’, does this mean that top speed will be 250kts as we buzz the deck in transit on advanced server? ‘As fast as you can’ contradicts with ‘all rules are strictly enforced’.

  2. Should we climb to TPA when joining the localizers or are we coming in ‘hott and dirty’ on all approaches?

Thanks!

If you are in a prop, 250KTS is extremely fast, just stay within the rules of the server and it’ll all be swell. :)

Also, I’d make 'em hot and dirty. :)

Will be there for awhile

Thanks for the reply @B767fan! I went into the free flight server with a Spitfire yesterday for practice and let’s just say I was comfortable flying <100ft off the deck at 330kts in my spitfire, hahaha. Extremely fast and dangerous, but no crashes logged.
