Let's Show PSA How It's Done! @ KCLT - 032100ZJUL18

Let’s Show PSA How It’s Done!

In case you weren’t aware 2 weeks ago 1100+ flights were cancelled due to a “Computer Glitch”. I personally was affected, stuck in Charlotte overnight, and figured what a great way to get some fun out of the experience.
The flight will take off from Charlotte and arrive at Washington Dulles. The flight plan to follow matches the real flight plan, including depature and arrival instructions, as filed in real life by PSA Airlines. It has been tested in IF.

This is for fun and a feeling of the real flight so I have included a ton which makes as real as you can get without doing the flight yourself. I’ll run this event again in a month after finding out what worked and didn’t for this one. Best wishes and have a great flight.

Hello & welcome to the Infinite Flight Community. We appreciate your post today, but in order to post in the #live:va, #live:events, #features and #real-world-aviation categories, you must be Trust Level 2 (TL2).

Keep reading, posting, liking, and following the guidelines and you’ll get there in no time! Also, be sure to search for any similar existing posts before making your own, in order to avoid making a duplicate topic.

Below are some helpful links to get you started. This includes some information regarding trust levels and more importantly the how this forum works. We ask that you please take a look through this important material and understand these posts. A lot of hard works was put into these topics for new members like you. We hope you enjoy your experience here with us. Please don’t hesitate to message a moderator if you have any questions. And last but not least, have fun! Thanks the help and understanding!

This is a well-planned and well-constructed post! I can tell that a lot of effort, thought, and preparation went into this event.

Now I know rules are rules (see above), however, I think an exception should be made. The topic is formatted correctly, has a lot of detail, and it contains all necessary information for users who are willing to join you for this flight. It would be great if a moderator could move it to the events category for you.

This is another great example of how event topics should be made. It sets the bar for others and also improves the overall forum quality. :)



I totally agree. However, the event would be at 11 pm my local time so it does not work for me. I hope to be able to join another of your events.

I have updated the post to include notams and gate assignments. I am working to locate controllers.

I’m happy to be ground or tower if you need.

Wonderful, Thank you, I’ll take departure then. If interested, after take off is complete you can switch to iad and take that as well and I’ll do approach unless you would like to switch it up. I really appreciate it.

I will alter the flight plan 1 hour from takeoff to match to expected runway on departure and arrival, this will match the munbe intercept for kilns3 transition and arrival intercept of barin for cavlr3 transition. Hope everyone enjoys. It is getting exciting.

I couldn’t find gate G15 at KCLT so I spawned at E15. Waiting for u guys

Sorry running. late coming now, sorry so sorry

We are off the ground - I messed up on the to local time. I meant 7PM but actually stored 5PM, totally my bad. So far so good. Future notes: Make sure to say E15 not G15. (I meant to say Gate E15 not G15). Make sure you convert correctly the Zulu time to local time. I’ll return again for 7PM just in case someone joins using the time I specified in the post.
3rd note - request callsign as xxx ### - this way we know who is who.
4th note - request arrival 5-15 minutes before depature time.
5th note - specify where the host will be gated.

EnRoute FPL updated to match to weather in DC
