Group VFR flight around Auckland area - Sunday, 24 July 2022

Postby ZK-DWF » Tue Jul 12, 2022 6:43 pm

Here's an invitation to join our informal group VFR flight on the evening of 24 July 2022 (Sunday) starting at 7.30pm (NZDT).

Still in the North Island, flying around Auckland.

Departure from Ardmore (NZAR), flying to Waiheke (NZKE), then Great Barrier Island with a touch and go at NZGB and NZKD.
Then back the mainland, with touch and goes at Omaha Flats (NZOF), Parakai (NZPI) and Whenuapai (NZWP) before buzzing downtown Auckland, to land at Auckland International (NZAA).

Should take about 1.5 hours. Plane of choice this time is the Diamond DA62 (twin engine).

Flying will be in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.
Server is South East Asia.
Time set is 1200 hours (noon NZT).
Weather is optional.
Add-on scenery of your choice.

Using Discord 'Long White Cloud' Server for voice traffic. Please try and have voice available. It makes its easier for everyone to know what's going on.

See you there, Dave (ZKDWF)

Hi everyone. I've never used Discord before. How does one set it up to connect 'Long White Cloud'?

Do I need an invite??

Cheers

There are a few screen shots from the last couple of group flights in the screenshot area of the Long White Cloud discord server also.
