Briefing November 2016
Overview For the November Event we will be flying into Goodwood using in reverse one of the routes from the real-world event last year. This is planned as a "remembrance" event, commemorating the aviators of all nationalities who gave their lives in the two World wars and subsequent conflicts.
Start Time and Place Ideally this event should be flown either on Friday November 11th, or on Sunday November 13th. There are seven possible start locations, and ten routes as listed below. The start location and route is entirely your choice, but your departure time should be planned to arrive and join the circuit at Goodwood as close to 21:30 (GMT/UTC) as possible.

The event may however be flown on any day in November.
Route Check on this website BoB Routes and enter your chosen route's waypoints as appropriate!
The individual routes can be seen by clicking on your chosen section below.
Departure from: Destination in each case: Goodwood / EGHR
Flight Planning Your flight plan should show:
  • Departure = EG.. (as shown above for your chosen section)
  • Destination = EGHR
  • Route = VFR remaining outside CAS
  • Comments = /V/ DAYLIGHT / CIX VFR CLUB /
You will need to work out your own flight times!
Weather Do use VATSIM weather. You might even choose your day to get better weather for the challenge, as VFR pilots have to, real world.
What Aircraft can I fly With one proviso, any aircraft can be flown in this event as long as it is within the EASA GA category.
If you wish to fly a military aircraft for this event you must fly in company/loose formation with its counterpart. (E.g. if flying a Spitfire, Hurricane etc. you must be accompanied by a BF109, FW190 etc.)
Plan-G There is currently no Plan-G file for this Event. If you produce one for your chosen section you are encouraged to share and make it available on the events forum post/thread for this event.
ATC At the time of publishing this event plan, ATC has not been confirmed.
Radio Discipline Take care not to let our Teamspeak chat cut across ATC. Stop any conversation immediately the R/T comes alive, then continue if "he wasn't talking to us". This is difficult because when transmitting on Teamspeak you can't hear the R/T. So be brief on Teamspeak, and be aware that ATC might be trying to get through. If anyone hears an R/T message which seems to be being ignored, just say "ATC is calling G-CIXN" if you have identified the callsign, or "ATC is calling us" which is a cue for everyone to be quiet on Teamspeak until ATC call again (which they will). Remember too that if asked to "Stand By" by ATC, you do not reply - not even "Roger", but simply wait until you are called again.
Remember also that there are several different ATC frequencies in use, and you may not be able to hear when communications are taking place. Make sure you have set and know how to use a Teamspeak mute switch.
