  • Around the World Lap 5 - --- Episode 42: Samurai School -- Thu 9pm eastern

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

    Join us Thursday night as our cargo hauling convoy returns to Hiroshimanishi to continue its journey north through Japan.

    Here is the plan for Thursday nights flight:

    RJBH departing RW 22
    RJOS RW 11
    RJGG RW 36 ILS 111.9
    RJAF RW 36
    RJSF RW 01 ILS 110.5

    A detailed 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 260 KIAS at around 10,000 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,
