The YS Civil Aviation Server presents an evening of flying in the South with
A Tour of Tennessee.
WHEN: Thursday, September 4th, 2014. 8:00 PM CDT (Friday, September 5th, 1:00 AM GMT) It should last around 90 minutes.
WHAT IT IS: This is a fun flight across the state of Tennessee. This is a casual event. If you cannot stay for the entire time you can land at an airport along the way. If you join late you can take off from an airport along the way.
WHAT IT IS NOT: This is not a race. We will be cruising at 2,500 feet at a speed of 200 kts TAS. This is not an air show, so you will not need any special acrobatic skills for this flight. We will not be flying in any special formation, although everyone needs to stay within a 3-mile radius of the lead plane (the 5-mile RADAR box).
HOW TO PARTICIPATE: There is no registration for this event, but if you plan to participate you can post here. I know this is on a Thursday evening, so many people will not be able to make it.
FLIGHT PLAN: We will start our flight across the state at Smyrna Airport at the general aviation parking area and taxi to the active runway. We will then take off and fly at a heading of 240 until we get to the point where Highway 412 crosses the Tennessee River. We will then turn to 270 until we come into sight of Beech River Regional Airport. After a fly-over of Beech River Regional, we will fly at a heading of 320 until we reach Highway 22, which we will follow until we fly over my house and drop flares in my front yard. Continuing to follow Highway 22, we will fly over Everett-Stewart Airport and turn to heading 220, passing near Arnold Field and Dyersburg Regional Airport. Finally, we will travel at heading 210 and land at Memphis International Airport and taxi to park near the NatComAir hangar.
AIRCRAFT: Anything capable of keeping up. If you would like make a custom paint of a civilian aircraft capable of close to 200 knots, please submit it to me no later than 5:00 PM CDT (10:00 PM GMT) on Wednesday, September 3.
