The evening's flight takes place from the eastern most airport within Australian airspace, Norfolk Island. For the flight it will be important for FSX users to install the photoreal scenery listed in the scenery section. The very short flight allows pilots to indulge in some really low slow flying in an aircraft of their choosing.
Simulation Date/Time : Current date set to daylight.
Weather : Real World / Fair weather if real world is unsuitable for VFR operations.
Distance : 30 nm
Est Flight Time : approx 65 mins
Aircraft : Single engine light sport aircraft such as Piper Cub, Aeroprakt A22 Foxbat or similar capable 55 to 85 kias.
Communications : Australia uses CTAF (Common Traffic Advisory Frequency) for radio comms at uncontrolled airfields. VATSIM pilots connecting to the network using FSCOPILOT/FSINN can install an additional file that provides the ability to tune the CTAF frequency and make voice announcements to other pilots on frequency. These files can be obtained via this link.
For pilots connecting to VATSIM using VPilot, there is a work around that enables these pilots to also take advantage of online voice CTAF. Refer to this informative VATPAC Forum post to learn how to implement the work around.
Altitude : Not above 3500

GPS Flightplan is available for FSX and X-Plane FMS and also provided is the original Plan-G flightplan for those that find this useful all enclosed within a Zip archive.
Navigation : Pilots familiar with the area can navigate visually, for those less familiar the accompanying GPS Flightplan is the recommended method of navigating the flight plan.
