Hello IFC! I would like to make a long haul event, so here it is! The point of this event is to get the approximate range of most aircraft. We will take off from SBGL and fly as far as possible! I(we) will try to get every aircraft in IF served by at least 1 person! I would love to see you all there!
There will be groups: prop GA, Little planes, small jets, medium jets, large jets, jumbo and fighters. Planes will takeoff from KLAX and follow the flight plan provided. Copy it from me
We request that only those who sign up (below) attend this event. Please make sure you can come, and cancellations should be within an hour of the event.
Now on topic…
Planes will takeoff on the active runway available. Fly on any heading that is between 260-280 or 80-100 (depending on wind direction).
Put your device on auto pilot and set to an altitude of you choice. Avoid flying to the northern early due to the trans American jetstream and to stay in the calmer wind down south. When you run out of fuel, note the nearest airport and flight time. If you can use a flight tracker that would be better.

NOTE: I will be controlling at for 15 minutes after the beginning of the event, or until all planes clear out.
If there is a plane you want to fly and less that 3 people have asked for it, I will add another slot for you. No more than 3 per plane type.
I hope to see you all there!
