  3. World Discovery - Lesotho Tour Leg 4 Final

    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. Flight created by YMA555 Details : Letseng (FXLT) to Moshoeshoe I Int'l (FXMM) Scenery: Lesotho_Africa 1.1 Aircraft: STOL capable of 120 – 130kias i.e. Cessna 172, PC-6 or Twotter Comms: Tune Radio to 122.80MHz - Unless Advised by ATC or further detailed hereunder .Flight Plan: FXLT Lejong FXKB FXLR FXMU FXMM this plan will also includea non-airfield waypoint “Lejong” to fly down the Katse Reservoir to Kolberg Airport FXKB Suggested Altitude: Follow flight plan Link FXLT-FXMM Distance: 104nm Weather: Real time weather, fair weather if conditions are not suitable for VFR Flying.

    Instructions advise that If you are planning to fly via airways (Mainly IFR,) VATPAC recommends the following routes to assist in Traffic Flow - Charts for all 3 aerodromes can be found here. Unfortunately as I am not a controller I cannot answer all the questions and therefore cannot get to the charts. I know one can get the charts elsewhere but if a statement says they are available here (for flyers/pilots) then they should be.

This pilot client is a one fits all alternative and will work with FSX, P3D V3/V4 and XPlane in either 32 bit Windows or 64 bit Windows, Mac and Linux. Swift also provides a capability for pilots to designate a CTAF (or it's equivelant) where the name of the voice room needs to be entered to enable voice communication. A voice room is typically in the form of "some.server.org/<Airport ICAO>". The server component is ALWAYS "rw1.vatpac.org". So this week's departure would use "rw1.vatpac.org/KDCA". For airports without an airport ICAO it is typical to use VATPAC VFR Virtual voice room acccessed using 131.25 in FSINN. The equivalent for SWIFT is "rw1.vatpac.org/virtualvfr".
