Friday Night Flight - Day Of The Cargo Pilot

Friday Night Flight - Day Of The Cargo Pilot

This week’s Friday Night Flight (FNF) will take place in the Southern California region. As many can imagine, being a cargo pilot can bring extremely long work days. This week we dive into a new level of realism as we simulate a full day’s work as a cargo pilot. The day starts with a commute to work before hopping in your your cargo plane to haul goods to San Diego and ending with a night flight home!

We will be using IF Procedures (SEE NOTAM for all instructions and routes) for all legs to provide an organized and realistic experience. For the event, these routes will be the ONLY authorized routes in the region. The commute and final leg have user choices available, so choose your own adventure! Full ATC will be available to implement and assist with procedures. Failure to follow instructions will lead to ghosting. It is recommended you take notes on the procedures or save on a second device. For added realism, follow the weight and time of day recommendations.

Full ATC Advanced server services will be on hand to keep everybody on schedule. You are welcome to copy the same procedures on the ATC Playground or Free Flight Servers.
