    KAI TAK , Hongkong revisited VHHX

    12:00 pmVHHX, Hongkongs old airport KAI TAK

    0900PDT/1200EDT/1600UTC(Z)

    B737/757/747/777/TS/FSinn/VAFS N/A ( Closed circuit flight)

     

    We did this event some years ago and it would be great to see some new DVA pilots do the "Checker Board" approach into KAI TAK.

    This was one of the most difficult approaches ever in the airline industry. Maybe that is why so few incidents happened here. The pilots were at the "edge of their seats" and paying all the attention to their final approach. Lets go and find out what they were up against.

    Here is a download scenery for FSX users. FS9 users should still have a pretty good scenery stored.

    BEFORE DOWNLOADING READ THE SCREEN WELL. YOU HAVE TO CRUISE THROUGH SOME SECURITY QUESTIONS FIRST.

    12:00 pmENTC Tromso, Norway TIME IS EDT

    Modern day regulations have finally caught up with Santa Klaus. The FAA

    requires all airborne objects to have a transponder. While the fleet of

    Reindeer Airlines is gonna be fitted with some additional equipment,

    Santa has some trouble to get provisions to his workshop.

    DVA has offered to help Santa out on November 2nd. Santa elves already
    got
    everything to Tromso Airport in the North of Norway. Your task is to
    be part
    of the 'airlift' employees (elves) and cargo between Tromso
    (ENTC) and
    Svalbard (ENSB) so they can finish all the presents.

    Svalbard is the most
    Northern commercially airport in the world with an
    active schedule. Do not
    forget to change to TRUE NORTH once you go
    beyond the 78th parallel!

    The Art of Parallel landings

    12:00 pmKOAK (Oakland, CA) NOTE NEW DATE

    Join us for this first time event in how to conduct a proper parallel landing. We recommend you watch Kerry's (DVA432) link in the DVA forum or here:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20z1mpSg2zE&list=PLc6ISfO4ATHYRA4K2BnPk6QABaFA5Ypqo

    Idea: DVA432/Kerry. Planning: DVA75255/Dave. Coordination DVA471/Kaj

    Tentative plans are so far to leave Oakland (KOAK) with a parallel take off from 27L (Mid size AC) and 29 (Large AC). Then a direct course to Sausalito VOR (SAU 116.2) Climb and maintain (for 29 only) 6000 and Climb and maintain (for 27L only) 8000 feet. Then pay close attention to departure for further vectors. It is important this time to pay attention to Tower/Departure ATC and follow instructions. Not like VATSIM we won't scream at you if you make a mistake. So no experience, no problem. All DVA's are welcome.

    More info Saturday at start. This is a difficult one to execute but really fun....BE THERE!!!

    This is the first in a small series of Group Flights solely dedicated to float planes with wheels (amphibious). One condition that enables you to participate in these events is that your aircraft must be amphibious (able to land both on land and water). We recommend strongly that you download FSX Snow Dog scenery from flightsim. It has 147 airports and floatplane docks. A must for those of you that like to fly in Alaska. Link here:

It's very interesting!!!....to say the least. They don't even have room for an airport here, that had to be built one on the next island over. We will shoot for the water port next to the main runway. We suggest you download scenery for this flight. Her is one:

    This leg will be interesting. The runway is long, so is the flight and you will probably prefer large equipment which is fine. Here is the catch, it's a gravel rwy. Extreme caution should be taken during landing to reduce damage to underbelly and engines. We want landing rates here to be under -100 fm preferably -50 or less. So plan for this one please and good luck.

    12:00 pmSPNC Huanuco-Peru

    So now we have to leave this long gravel runway. The key to success is to get your nose wheel off the ground as soon as possible. Then lift the aircraft off the ground and level off while you pick up speed. As you reach V2 then climb. (An old trick I learned from my friend Captain Stephen Bennett) This will reduce the damage from the shaking encountered on gravel. This leg is not that long so reduce your fuel load to the minimum.

    PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATE

    To celebrate our 10th Anniversary ( Delta Virtual Airlines was founded on August 3rd, 2007 by Tyler Newport) we will go down memory lane and re live some of the fun events and competitions we have had over the last 10 years. The first one will take us from San Francisco down to Orange County and John Wayne Airport.

    Initial event April 11, 2009

    Many years ago I was on the phone with my late friend Captain Stephen Bennett of Delta Airlines when he suddenly said " hey, by the way I am now a member of the Mid Field Club"......after a few seconds I replied" I have no clue of what you are talking about"

    He explained:

    When arriving into KSNA (Santa Ana, Orange CO) and you are able to make a full stop and exit taxiway H you are qualified for a membership to the "Midfield Club" This being an old Tower "thing" and they keep track of who has made it.

    Let's see if we can do it. No touchdown before the 600' marker allowed.

    WWI dog fights......a DVA first....NOW EXTENTED to 3 Saturdays

    12:00 pmLRN (Lorraine, France) and SAR (Saarbrucken, Germany)

    It has been a hundred years since WWI ended. I thought it would be a great opportunity for our DVA pilots to get a feel of what it would be like to experience flying a WWI aircraft. As you soon will learn it is very different from modern aircraft's and quite a challenge to fly. Trying to enter a dog fight with one of these aircraft's has now become a deadly challenge. We will try to create the scene of 1917 on the border between France and Germany and bring some of these old birds into a battle.

    Our Scandinavia Tour starts at Copenhagen's secondary airport Roskilde. Most of our group flights will be flown out of smaller airports, just as they are done with regional airlines in the real world. However there will be a couple of challenges on the way to keep your Weight & Balance department honest. I am talking about short runways and big aircraft's. But for now we will board our twin turbo's and head Northeast.

    Here is an airport not often visited, except for regional airlines. This is Stockholm's original airport close to downtown. Finding a location for a large airport was difficult due to the terrain, and the newer Arlanda had to be located far from downtown. However it is connected to downtown with a high speed rail that will bring you to the City in 20 minutes at 120 mph.

    We are at our halfway point to reach Barrow in North Alaska. The DVA Management requires one yearly training class in Mountain Flying. We ask that all participating Group Flight members sign up for these classes. This will be a fun and educating event filled with many challenges during this break from our scheduled Group Flights.The Nepal Government will supply us with STOL aircraft's. You must download the scenery posted below. Read the install carefully as you need to copy and paste the BGL's. We will not use VAFS for these flights as the airports are not in the VAFS database. This mean NO landing rate pressure. Just a ton of fun.

    We continue our trek east to the City of Omsk.

    As of 2008, Omsk Oblast is the 23rd largest economy in Russia, with a gross regional product of 10.2 billion dollars.

    The economy of Omsk Oblast is heavily industrial, with well developed, and growing, service and financial sectors. Agriculture represents a smaller, but still significant, portion of the economy.

    Economic activity is concentrated in Omsk, with over sixty-six thousand private enterprises registered, ranging from small-scale retailers to billion-dollar manufacturing.[10]

    Omsk was ranked by Forbes as the 6th-best city in Russia for business in 2008, an improvement over its 20th-place ranking the previous year.[11]

    The oblast and city governments have made efforts to improve the business climate and foster small enterprise through various incentives and government programs designed to ease the bureaucratic red-tape, a notorious feature of Russian business life, and to generate cooperation within the business community.[12]

    The bulk of industrial output, as of 2009, is concentrated in food and tobacco processing ($900 million), hydrocarbon processing ($6.7 billion), chemical manufacturing ($500 m), plastics manufacturing ($200 m) and the manufacture of electrical components ($280 m). The remainder of the economy is dominated by the retail sector and agriculture.

    The largest industrial enterprises include the aerospace manufacturer Polyot, the Omsk Aggregate Plant, the agricultural manufacturer Sibzavod, Omsk Baranov Motorworks, and Omsktransmash, which manufactures the T-80 main battle tank. Additionally, Omsk Rubber, the Technical Hydrocarbon Plant, Omsk-Polymer and Omsk Hydrocarbon Processing Plant, represent the petroleum and hydrocarbon industry. Omsk Hydrocarbon is one of the most important oil refineries in Russia.[13]

    The oblast operates four thermal power plants, which makes it largely self-sufficient from the standpoint of energy generation.

    Agricultural production is concentrated in the Isil'rul'skii District and produces wheat, barley, flax, sunflower, potato, various fruits and vegetables as well as meat, poultry and dairy products.

    The food processing sector includes several breweries, a distillery and numerous food packaging enterprises.

    Yes, you guessed it. We continue our journey east to Krasnoyarsk. (Try to say that fast after two Belgian Trappist Ales and a shot of Stolichnya).

    The total area of the city, including suburbs and the river, is 348 square kilometers (134 sq mi).[7]

    The Yenisei River flows from west to east through the city. Due to the Krasnoyarsk hydroelectric dam 32 kilometers (20 mi) upstream, the Yenisei never freezes in winter and never[citation needed] exceeds +14 °C (57 °F) in summer through the city. Near the city center, its elevation is 136 meters (446 ft) above sea level. There are several islands in the river, the largest of which are Tatyshev and Otdyha Isles, used mainly for recreation.

    To the south and west, Krasnoyarsk is surrounded by forested mountains averaging 410 meters (1,350 ft) in height above river level. The most prominent of them are Nikolayevskaya Sopka (notable for its ski jumping tracks), Karaulnaya Gora, and Chornaya Sopka, the latter being an extinct volcano.[17] The gigantic rock cliffs of the Stolby Nature Reserve rise from the mountains of the southern bank of the Yenisei, the western hills form the Gremyachaya Griva crest extending westwards up to the Sobakina River, the north is generally plain, except for the Drokinskaya Sopka hill, with forests to the northwest and agricultural fields to the north and east.

    The major rivers in and near Krasnoyarsk are the Yenisei, Mana, Bazaikha, and Kacha Rivers, the latter flowing throughout the historical center of the city. Due to the nature of the terrain, a few natural lakes exist in the vicinity of Krasnoyarsk.

    The forests close to the city are mostly pine and birch; further afield, aspen becomes dominant in many areas. The moss-covered fir and Siberian pine replaces other wood in the mountains westward of the Karaulnaya River, in about 15 kilometers (9.3 mi) to the west from the city, the forests to the south are mostly pine, fir and aspen.[18]
