This is Airport MAX Out’s first landing Competition! During our Pre-Show, @Balloonchaser, @Cbro4, and myself came across this airport. It has a very difficult approach due to the giant cliff sticking out on one side and another cliff that falls down into the ocean. It took us many attempts and crashes before we could land! The goal of this event is to see who can land the best without crashing! I hope you enjoy and see you at the event!
On December 1st at 23:45 ZULU, all the participating aircraft will spawn in at TFFJ at their assigned gate. You will be given clearance to takeoff maintaining 5 minutes of separation between yourself and another pilot. Next, each pilot will fly the visual flight plan provided and fly around the island where TNCS is located. Then, one by one, each pilot will be given clearance for landing. After landing, taxi off the runway and exit the sim, or stay and watch your fellow pilots! Our judges will score your landing and rank you. The results will be released at 25:00 ZULU.
Since there are limited way points in the Caribbean region, please follow this flight plan to the best of your ability. Just make sure to fly around the island for your approach!
