Charity 24 hour flying challenge [Sat 14th Jan]
« on: Sun 01 Jan 2017, 12:09 »


• The event starts at 7am on Saturday 14th January 2017 till 7am on Sunday 14th January 2017 (all times UTC/GMT/Zulu). There are 12 back-to-back flights across Europe and you can fly as few or many as you like. The event will be streamed live over Twitch.

• This year we're hoping to raise over £500 for Aerobility, a registered charity dedicated to helping those with disabilities get into the skies.  Last year the event raised £200 for Teenager Cancer Trust.

Route details at http://charity.ukvirtual.co.uk/route/

The flights have been added into ACARS ready for the event. I have given them each their own flight number starting at ICX15A. You can find them easily on the day by checking the Charter box on ACARS.


The aircraft type has been set to A32S, as the timings have been made with jets in mind, however you are free to fly any ICX aircraft of your choice.


If multiple pilots are taking part then we recommend using your Pilot ID when flying online, to avoid duplicate callsigns.


I will hopefully be attending for the first few legs (So long as I dont get called off standby!), hope to see some of you there!
