Also acknowledging an Excessive Leg Duration penalty. 2 minutes over x 3 = 6 minute penalty in addition to the 3 minute Consecutive Pilot penalty.

Re: 2017 Race?

I'm in 'cause it's always been a blast, from the lead-up to the actual race to the post-race. Even before I became an active race participant, I maintained an interest and looked forward to "that weekend in February" where the atmosphere seems to carry a different weight, or cast, or charge, or call...

Re: 2016 Rules and Whitelist

Over at FlightSim.com I posted, in addition to the Duenna graphic and .txt files, a crude table of the results gleaned from the flight test I did yesterday evening. I hope I captured all of the pertinent data points. No matter what the Decision is, at least I'm getting some good practice with tubes ...

Re: 2016 Rules and Whitelist

Just finished running a test flight on the Captain Sim B722. Conducted under standard conditions (clear all weather selected). Took off with 50% fuel and landed with 20%. Showed Vne of 395KIAS and Mmo of 0.90. "Crossover point" is somewhere between FL255 and FL260. Duenna results will be over at Fli...

Re: 2016 Rules and Whitelist

I'll be running some test flights and posting the results over at the FlightSim multiplayer adventures forum this coming week, and comparing them to the FS9 default B734. Apologies if I caused such a fuss, but my curiosity was piqued when I studied the Whitelist and didn't see the aircraft there.

Re: 2016 Rules and Whitelist

Thanks for the quick response, Eamonn. I originally purchased the Captain Sim "Legendary 727" package on sale from FS Pilot Shop, and I just now went to the Captain Sim website to see if it was available there. It is. (http://www.captainsim.com/store/, scroll down to the bottom of the page.) I plan ...

Re: 2016 Rules and Whitelist

Question:
I see that the CaptainSim B727 is in the Whitelist for FSX, but not for FS9. I purchased it just before Christmas 2015, and have flown it on several flights. Is it not on the Whitelist because of an oversight, or has the flight file been examined and been deemed not legal?

Re: Suggestions for 2016 and Beyond

Finally, I hope Frank (ponchovilla), a FlightSim.com rookie pilot this year, doesn't mind me quoting him, from a post over at their forum. It gives me a lot of encouragement that we can and should find new pilots who will enjoy the race! Quote me all you want. If I throw it out there for everybody ...

Re: Suggestions for 2016 and Beyond

I've finally thrown my hat into the ring and there's talk about the Race dying off? Oh, HELL no! I worked myself to where my jeans are a lot more baggy in the back, and I'll contribute what I can to help make the Race a better event for all. The rules and FAQ's need to be streamlined, that's for sur...
