Hello all, I have made a vPilot flight-plan for this event. To load it, you must be connected to the network; click "File Flight Plan"; click "Load..."; then locate the downloaded file I have attached. I believe this would be a good addition to the event as quite often supervisors are messaging pilots to file flightplans. If you require any help loading the flight plan or any questions about it, don't hesitate to contact me.

 

Pheonix.
