      This Weeks Flight for Wednesday 23rd October 2019 starting at 8.30pm AEDT (NB: Daylight Saving Now Operative) concludes a four week flight around Lesotho. For those who do not know, Lesotho is an independent country landlocked within South Africa. Lesotho is a mostly mountainous country similar to Papua New Guinea however without the vegetation and has many very challenging airfields. For this reasons flight times appear relatively short however time will be taken to locate and land.
      The flight is based upon scenery created for X-Plane 11.30 by Alex-C downloadable here Lesotho_Africa 1.1.  Please note there are two files listed, you only need the file 1.1.  Small download only 245KB and is a  must have for the flight  as most of the airfileds are NOT in X-Plane (nor other simulators.). It is presumed that pilots know how to install Custom Scenery. If not, then there are numerous tutorials available via your search engine.
      Unfortunately this series of flights can only really be flown in XP11 although other sims can fly the route and in some cases may even have “better” scenery.
      It is also most advantageous but not necessary to create Ortho4xp tiles for the scenery ( you would need about 7 tiles) due to the improved mesh that is also created within the Ortho4xp program.  Mountains are quite respectable in default in any case.
      PS: After installing scenery do not forget to update the relevant scenery bases in whichever other programs you might use. i.e. FSTramp,  PlanG,  Little Nav Map etc.

      Communications
      Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. Now that VATSIM has introduced AFV (Audio For VATSIM) CTAF can now be used across all VATSIM approved pilot clients. Pilots are requested to tune to the published frequency as detailed in the flight details for an event when operating in or around an aerodome to make and monitor CTAF broadcasts. Pilots should also be aware that it is a VATSIM COC (Code of Conduct) requirement that all pilots at uncontrolled airfields should monitor Unicom (Australia 122.80). It is highly recommended that pilots ensure that at least one of their "on board" COM radios (COM 2 being the most likely) is tuned to receive unicom transmissions in addition to transmitting and receiving on the published CTAF frequency. Please Note. All pilots should also be vigilant regarding the receipt of text on both unicom and CTAF. If it is discovered there is a pilot participating that is unable to receive voice transmissions, pilots should arrange to also broadcast via text to ensure those pilots without the benefit of voice is able to receive appropriate broadcasts. VATSIM provides an update guide for getting AFV working on each of the approved pilot clients.
