  • Around the World Lap 5 - --- Episode 39: The Viking Sunstones -950 Iceland --Thu 9pm eastern

    Hi pilots! Time to hop in that Herky-bird for another adventure Back in Time!

    Thursday night we will set the singularity drive to the year 950 in order to return some recently salvaged "Sunstones" to their Viking owners in Iceland.!AsFIlxhwmWg9gh4xTPyY9kIDZJHV

    Thursdays flightplan is as follows:

    Kulusuk Greenland Departure (BGKK)
    Viking salvage operation (XXX7)
    Reykjavic Iceland (BIRK)
    Hornafjordur Iceland (BIHN)

    A flightplan .PLN file for this flight can be found here:

    This flight will take place using JoinFS!

    As always with these Around the World flights the preferred aircraft is the timeless Captain sim C130 Hercules, but feel free to use any cargo prop that can maintain 250 KIAS at around 16,000 ft. Please do Not bring a jetliner to this event because they stick out like a sore thumb and are a distraction.

    Not sure what to fly?

    For those who don't have or don't want to fly the C-130, this should help you decide.
    • An-12 Most similar to C-130. Most extras (airbrake, autothrottle, paradrop). Russian annotations. Most difficult to fly.
    • An-32 Most frame-rate friendly. Best cockpit model. Easy to fly except long spool time. Needs refueling on long flights.
    • Howard 500 Easy for piston engine pilots. Best climber. Tail-dragger. Performance tails off at altitude. Poorest frame rates.
    • C-119 Boxcar Easiest to fly.
      • Re-engined (French) variant: Faster. Normal climb rates.
      • Normal engine variants: Slower. Half the climb rate so gets left behind on short-medium length flights.

    Happy landings,
