Server: Casual

Starting Airport: KATW

NOTAM: Come on down and celebrate freedom in your favorite plane with jets from any United States airline for a nice cruise around the Oshkosh Region.

After that touch&go, climb to 12000 feet and cruise at 320 KIAS. We will then begin to descend into KATW.

Other info:
You are encouraged to take screenshots, on the ground and throughout the event. While cruising through the air, get as close together as possible with other planes! In an effort to all stay together, please cruise at only 240 KIAS below 10000 feet and 320 KIAS above 10000 feet. If you find yourself behind the pack, slightly increase your speed and if you find yourself ahead of the pack, slightly decrease your speed.
Lastly, don’t push back/taxi until I (callsign American 17 76) does as it gives time for screenshots.

Hope to see you there!

You’re right, I did this flight and it seems too fast, I’ve changed it to 320.

Important Update:
I’ve changed the event date from July 4th to July 3rd, in order to avoid any conflicts with IRL celebrations.
