Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The Ultimate MP Fly-In will be a multiplayer event hosted in conjunction with FSweekend 2014 (November 1st-2nd) and taking place in the Iberian Peninsula.

This 48-hour event, originally proposed by METAL, will feature a variety of scenarios to appeal to a big variety of players – from pilots going for absolute realism to casual flyers. It will also be an occasion to welcome new players to the FlightGear world.

Mini-events

During the Fly-In several themed events (mini games) will be held. The games can take place at any time during the 48-hour period; slots can be reserved by posting on this forum thread and will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.

The following table lists all confirmed mini-events so far:

Title Time (UTC) Details

Controlled airports

Several airports will be manned to provide a realistic environment; check the exact times on Lenny's website.

Voice communication (held exclusively via Mumble, server: mumble.allfex.org) is preferred; text chat will be offered as a backup service.

We kindly ask pilots flying there to follow these guidelines to make this experience enjoyable for everyone.

  • You must not start on a runway; start FlightGear, taxi to the apron and connect to the multiplayer servers only at that point.
  • You must request appropriate clearances (be authorized by ATC) to taxi, takeoff, land at an airport and you will be expected to follow them promptly.
  • You will be expected to communicate using at least basic ICAO phraseology - see the ATC phraseology and the ATC Tutorial wiki pages.
  • You must be able to taxi, takeoff, land, maintain an assigned heading/speed/altitude.
  • Please follow ATC best practices.

Flightplans

Though this is not mandatory, all pilots are encouraged to file flightplans on Lenny's website.

ATC scheduling
