Server: Expert

Aircraft: XCub

Even though there are thirteen spaces listed, I can add more if needed. The participants will be staying in the pattern. Your landings will be judged in a different way than usual. Of course, the typical ones Smoothness, Centerline, Touchdown Point and the new component - 2-point landing/3-point landing. If You do a 2-point landing, You get extra points! The points for that depend on how well the landing is performed.

Also, please come in either Orange & Gray or Yellow & Gray liveries.

About the Aircraft

Credit to CubCrafters for the picture.

Aircraft like the CubCrafters XCub often participate in Bush Flying, where the aircraft can land on rough and rigid terrain, because of its’ large tires. Of course in this competition we’ll be landing on an asphalt runway, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t going to be challenging!

That being said, here’s some useful tutorials on taking off and landing! They include the 2-point and 3-point landings mentioned before :)

About the Airport

Credit to Mike Criss.

Juneau International Airport is a one-runway airport surrounded by the beautiful Alaskan mountains. It was established during World War II, where it was used by the military as a contact link between various facilities. Commercial operations were started by the now bankrupt Pan Am in 1991. Now, the airport gets about 110 000 aircraft visits per year, about 300 a day. Those come from General Avation, six commercial airlines, three cargo airlines and the military.

I could probably move it to Sunday @Butter_Boi and @Abudy if that’s okay with @ButterMachine

In my location I have school on Sunday. If you can move it to a Friday that would be good

@Butter_Boi @ButterMachine if that’s okay with You two?
