**PROCEDURE FOR EVENT**
Hey. Ready for an Antarctic Expedition? You’ve come to the right event. This upcoming Saturday, hop in your commercial aircraft of choice (besides the Dash 8 and others like it), and point your compasses south. Set your flight plan to 90 degrees south. Despite the newly added fuel burn, we will cruise at 13000 ft MSL, and will be traveling at 345 kts IAS. We are on Casual server, so upon takeoff set your speed AP to 345kts.
Upon arrival, we will meet on the icy Antarctic ground (remember, we’re on CASUAL, so we can land wherever), at precisely 90 degrees SOUTH. There’s a setting for the status bar for geographic coordinates. I’ll try to lead the pack so you don’t have too much trouble finding the South Pole. Hope to see you this weekend for this epic trip.
