Hey guys! I’m new to the community! I was thinking we could do a southwest flight routine from Burbank (bob hope intl) in Southern California to San Diego intl. it will be scheduled flights from 6 am Los Angeles time or pacific standard, to 9pm pacific time. Flights will depart at 6:10, 7:10, 7:55, 8:35, 9:05, 10:00, 10:45, 11:30, 1:05, 2:05, 3:05, 4:05, 4:45, 5:30, 6:00, 6:25, 7:05, 8:00, and 9:00. Flight plan is simple enough: takeoff on active runway, preferably 15, head straight down to San Diego, remain in pattern one time and land RWY 27. San Diego times will be 6:00, 7:00, 8:00, 9:00, 10:00, 10:30, 11:30, 12:30, 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, 4:00, 5:00, 5:30, 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, and 9:00. Planes can be new or old 737-700’s from 11am-3pm. Any time else must be 737-800’s, mainly for rush hour. Please reserve these times at firstname.lastname@example.org, and if any developers want to join in, that would be awesome :D! I will update everyday to tell what slots are empty or taken. The date will be July 17th. Remember it is on pacific standard time so if you live in Boston or New York make note of that. Thank you! And lastly, I would like to know if this has ever been done, a complete flight schedule. Shoutout to developers if we have a day where we reenact what happened at that airport on that day. Thank you!!!
It’s a good idea, but I’m 99% certain southwest doesn’t fly a Burbank San Diego route?
Actually they do! It was cancelled a year or so ago, but it was because of lack of interest. But it was great way to avoid traffic of…ugh lax. So they moved it to lax for more. Money
Also it is the longest realistic flight you can do with southwest
Lol I just checked they do again. Maybe my mom just sucks at planning trips.
But you said it yourself, it’s cancelled? KTPA / KFLL would give it a run for its money
Am I missing something? They don’t fly direct, it’ll have a stop and plane change in Vegas
Good point. But if you live in la that’s like saying you might as well just drive there. More than half of Los Angeles population lives north of downtown, more easily acsessed by public is Burbank. So that’s why I chose Burbank. I feel so matter of fact. Lol
You know where I live its 4 in the morning, let’s talk tomorrow if that’s ok. All I’m saying is it would be a cool idea to have a scheduled flight day, and since there’s no Las Vegas, we’ll just straight there. Sorry
Hi Spencer…this is a super idea…not sure if i have seen this before on IF…but it would be cool to do this…i think some co-ordination with a few ATC guys would be good especially at KBUR…KSAN can take care of itself as always…haha…i most certainly want to do this…i can do 2-3 hrs straight no worries…just keep the updates posted…
Ok. It’s great to see people responding so quickly i am surprised
I’ll update tomorrow at 8pm Los Angeles time tomorrow, sorry for the lateness but it is a busy day for me
take your time…plenty of day left…just good planning and organization is required…
Ok bye guys
I think it’s a great idea, just like the real world, I will take a slot for sure
Hats off to you sir for coming up with this idea
Thanks! I will post the new updates at 8pm pacific time tonight or so.
(@Full_flight) It appears 13 year old are hitting hard here today. First an offer to tutor ATC now it a flight scedululer with a Route Plan with slots etc and a gang of supporters. This is why I monitor this site. The talent here is amazing!
I had a Aviation HiSchool Studant PM me with a critique the other day, critical but dead on. Minute by minute observations with pic’s of a lazy T&G season.
IF & it’s people (particularly you Spencer) Rock! Mad Max Sends
Would be cool if there was another server made just for this, exactly mimicking the real world, a server that features scheduled flights, with slots, atc, and any slots that aren’t taken just becomes a cancelled flight
Just expressing my thoughts,
Would be hard to manage tho
That’s an amazing idea!
Max where do u fly I don’t think I’ve ever seen you in my travels
