Event details


This Weeks Flight on 11th November 2020 finds us in the Channel Islands, UK doing a tour of the islands as well as encroaching into France.

Flight based on a suggestion by David Grant (Vatsim United Kingdom)

If "channel control" is on they might control you for the entire flight.  London West might also cover the area but is rarely online. 

Scenery Suggested:


Channel Islands and Airports

It is to be noted that each individual airfield folder is copied to the Community folder (that is six separate folders) unless you use the MSFS Addons Linker utility in which you will activate each folder.

X-Plane 11

EGJJ Jersey Airport 1.0.0

EGJB Guernsey Airport 1.0.0

EGJA Alderney Airport 1.0.0

Most X-Plane 11 flights will also benefit from improved mesh which can be obtained from https://www.alpilotx.net/ There is HD and UHD available depending on region. Just check each download page and locate the relevant tile/co-ordinate, download and install as usual. Ensure that the mesh folder is placed in the correct order at bottom of Scenery_packs.ini file.

Each sim platform has it's own points of interest i.e. MSFS has a large castle on Brecqhou Island just off Sark (refer wpt 02) however this castle and it's fictitious landing strip is only in MSFS. Brecqhou has had a 150m grass airstrip fitted - ZEGBQ - to irritate its evil owners by landing on their lawn.

Comms: Unicom 122.80 unless instructed by ATC
