  1. Welcome to the first section of ATWC 7even! Below you will find the first thirteen legs of our relay around the world. Out of the thirteen flights, twelve are open for bidding during the first bidding window. Leg one is traditionally flown by Mutley from the Hangar base at Southampton UK EGHI. Please note, new to this challenge is the introduction of sub-legs, so for example flight leg 7 is from VIAG to VQPR is via VNLK (good luck whoever gets that one!). Also note, one of the flights has a MTOW applied so if you are bidding for that one, then please include the type of aircraft you intend to fly so we can make sure your bid meets the restriction criteria for the flight. The bidding window for section 1 will open at 14:00 UTC on Saturday the 22nd July. Bids must be sent to atwc@mutleyshangar.com, and only e-mails that arrive after the bidding window has opened will be taken into consideration when assigning flights. The bidding window usually remains open until all flights are assigned to a pilot, but as we have so few registered pilots, we may press on regardless. Your bid should consist of a list of the flights you are interested in flying, with your most preferred flight at the top. Our tag line is "Come and fly the seven wonders of the world with ATWC 7even!" so the route includes many wonders of the ancient, modern, industrial and natural world. Beginning our adventure, we initially head north to Old Sarum and a Wonder from the so-called Middle Ages list, Stonehenge, and then on to Dundee, and a Wonder from the Industrial list, Bell Rock Lighthouse. From here our journey turns east as we head to Tallinn and a fantastic location to see the Aurora Borealis, one of the gorgeous Wonders of the Natural World. We continue our venture south, down from the top of Asia, to Agra, India, and the Taj Mahal, now considered one of the New Wonders before turning east to Mt Everest, the second of our Natural Wonders. Moving on into China, we deviate for a tourist visit to the Terracotta Army, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, at Xianyang, before continuing on to The Great Wall of China at Beijing and the site of the Porcelain Tower of Nanjing, both from the Wonders of the Middle Ages list. After another tourist deviation, this time to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ankor Wat, in Cambodia, we conclude Sector 1 in Singapore. Cheers, Joe

  3. OK to keep things moving along how about a word(s) association game? Just reply with the first thing that comes into your head, it doesn't have to be aviation related and no smut please! I will start- AIRPORT

  8. Love those shots Jury42! We are still in summer, Autumn can wait! PS, do we keep calling you Jury1942, or do you have a first name we can talk to? Everyone uses our first name here if we know it Thanks, Joe
  9. Calling all repainters! Do you enjoy repainting airliners in FSX or P3D? Would you like to use your hobby to work with Just Flight and get paid for it? We’re looking for a number of part-time repainters to help our development team with some painting. If that sounds like your cup of Paintshop, drop us a line at repaints@justflight.com with your name and a sample of something you’ve done – or a link if your repaints are hosted somewhere.
  10. We have a few talented people here so off you go!
  11. Oooh nice, should I?
  12. For July we would like to see unusual landing places, ideal subject for helis but challenging for fixed wing aircrafts! Good luck, normal rules apply and the competition ends on 31st July 2017.
  13. News from Ed over at Orbx! I think a few of you have been waiting for this one... This is a new version (1.52) that has a new version of the config tool, no other changes are with this update. Please note: P3Dv3/4 addons that use the the addon.xml method will not be picked up by the auto configuration AEC funtion. Considering the low uptake of addons using this method we decided to release Vector now. If an airport requires AEC to be disabled and it uses the addon.xml method, you can manually disable it. We are working on changes for the config tool to cater for these in due course. See here http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/138335-ftx-vector-available-for-p3dv4/
  14. The old ones are the best! Feel free to add your joke here but keep it clean. (Alan !) I'll start........ Two Irish hunters got a pilot to fly them to Canada to hunt moose. They managed to bag six. As they were loading the plane to return, the pilot said the plane could take only four moose. The two lads objected strongly. 'Last year we shot six. The pilot let us take them all and he had the same plane as yours.' Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six were loaded. However, even on full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load and went down. Somehow, surrounded by the moose bodies, Paddy and Mick survived the crash. After climbing out of the wreckage, Paddy asked Mick, 'Any idea where we are?' Mick replied, 'I think we're pretty close to where we crashed last year.' Cheers
  15. Well, it's that time again, a meeting with the bank manager has been arranged to extend a line of credit via a credit card that will accompany the baton around the globe. If that fails, Wonga.com says they can advance a 100 quid a month @ 1509% APR.
  16. Well, luckily I have 10.000 Nectar points That should get us to Dundee...
  17. Last time I take your advice John
  18. Ha ha! Thanks Geoff, only another 7even cents to go!
  19. Get them boots heated up! Love the Jetstream
  20. In FTX Central, if there is an update for whatever sim version you selected when FTXC started then, it tells you. If you only have one sim installed then it goes directly to your version. You'll be OK Wayne
  21. Brilliant!
  22. Superb pictures Ros, and what a shame RealAir have retired. What sim is this?
  23. Just published is Andrew Godden's review on BlackBox Simulation's Cessna L-19 Bird Dog. The L-19 Bird Dog is a tandem seat, lightweight, liaison and observation aircraft, but does it feel like one? Read...
  24. iFly and Flight1 are proud to announce that our award-winning 747-400v2 is now flight ready for the Prepar3D v4 (64-bit) platform. As with the previous release of our 737NG, the 747-400v2 is not a simple “port over” from Prepar3D Version 3, but a new version compiled from the P3Dv4 64-bit version SDK. This offers users better overall performance of aircraft systems and takes advantage of the new high-definition dynamic lighting and HDR reflections recently added to the sim. These new lighting and reflections illuminate the 747-400 airframe, ground and surrounding objects like never before. Users will be very pleased with the advantages the new 64-bit platform provides by giving you stunning visuals and performance both inside and out of the cockpit. For more information, screenshots, and to download this beautiful version of our iFly 747-400v2, go to http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=ifly744p3d for detailed installation instructions, please visit our the announcement thread in the iFly forums here: http://ifly.flight1.net/forums/747400v2-for-p3d-v4-64bit-released_topic15501.html
