  • Chopper Tuesdays - week 10 - Japanese Tour continues



    Join me at 9pm eastern as we continue our relaxed series of flights around Japan. This week we fly three slightly longer legs instead of four shorter ones, because of inhospitable terrain for intermediate landing.

    Flight plans: https://is.gd/StormsFlightPlans (both .PLN and .FMS files available).
    Or look at the end of our Discord channel #group-flight-info on the day of the flight.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


    Are these flights for rotorcraft only?
    Yes. No fixed wing aircraft please.

    I sometimes like to fly weird stuff. What exactly are you calling a rotorcraft?
    1. It must have one or more rotors that generate lift (so no Jet Packs!).
    2. It must be capable of hovering in place, as well as controlled vertical take-off and landing (so no autogyros).
    Other than that, anything is OK. So in addition to helicopters, you can bring (for example) your Rotodynes and Verticopters.

    I'm really new/inexperienced with rotocraft and concerned I'll make a fool of myself.
    No problem. These flights are to have fun. We all start somewhere and you'll find people are supportive.

    Will we always be landing at airports?
    Sometimes, yes, but not always. Sometimes we'll land at heliports or on helipads. But sometimes we may land on a beach or a lake (with advance warning, of course, so we fly with floats!).

    Will we always fly direct between stops?
    No. Very often we will follow natural features such as valleys, rivers and shorelines.

    Will we fly the same speed each week?
    Probably not. You may need to change your rotorcraft week to week.

    Will we always start one week where we left off the previous week?
    Sometimes, yes. Some flights will be "tours" and be part of a series. But others will be one-off flights.

    Will you be subjecting us to trivia and trivia questions?
    No! Not on these flights.
