This Sunday, the Swiss IFATC have come together to stay open as much as possible in Switzerland and let you discover some stunning scenery! To bring a little spice to this, we have decided to make an event. We have organised a race from Geneva to Samedan (LSZS). But wait! It’s not any race where you go in a straight line! Here you will have to fly very low like a snake in the valleys (About 25 minutes). We will have TFRs set to guide you with maximum altitudes as well as the FPL we prepared. You will also get to enjoy ATC at the departing and arriving airport.
Server: Expert (don’t worry about vios the C130 doesn’t have a speed limit. However be respectful of others and ATC. Ghosting will be enforced)
Airport: LSGG (Geneva)
aircraft: any C130
gate assignment: we’re not assigning gates as there are plenty. Just don’t all spawn in the same spot 🙃 (Even though there is no gate assignment, please let us know if you’re planning on coming. Like that we have an idea of the numbers. Thanks!)
Please Spawn at least 5 minutes before the start of the event. ATC will then clear you as normal to taxi. Once ready for takeoff, ATC will clear one plane every two minutes (precisely!). That clearance is the start gun. From that point on, Go go go!!! Another member of the team will be checking on LiveFlight and will be timing your run in the mean time.
The finishing line will be between two mountains right before the last very sharp turn to the right. That will give you time to slow down before contacting ATC and landing. Don’t miss the turn it’s very tight!
The results will be published at the end once everyone’s landed. The winner obviously gets the right to brag about being the best C130 pilot😜.
The FPL I made is an approximation of your flight. It’s a VFR flight but we don’t want to get lost now do we? Try and look around while flying, you’ll get to see some very nice places. Unless you’re here to win in which case go fast fast fast😏!

Once everyone has landed, we encourage you to go explore some of Switzerland flying to another airport we’ll be controlling. For more info and flight ideas have a look at our topic => IFATC at home Switzerland
