  • Around the World Lap 5 - --- Episode 41: Shogun Japan -- Thu 9pm easter

    Hi pilots! Looks like its time for another night of delivering cargo in those majestic Herkybirds!

    Thursdays cargo run takes us into southern Japan.

    Heres what the flight plan for Thursday looks like:

    RJFC Yakushima -- departing RW 32
    RJFK Kagoshima
    RJFU Nagasaki
    RJDC Tamaguchi
    RJBH Hiroshimanishi

    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 8,000 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,
