[SEPT 28] YSCAS Cross Country Race (YSCAS)

The YS Civil Aviation Server and PMNV Creations present an afternoon of action in the South with

The YSCAS Cross Country Race: Tennessee.


SERVER: civav.ddns.net

WHEN: September 28, 2014 at 1:00 PM Central Daylight Time (6:00 PM GMT)

WHAT IT IS: This is a race from Nashville to Halls, Tennessee.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Please preregister in a post below. Names of participants will be added to this post as they come in. Pilots will be given a number according to their entry order. That number will correspond to the number on their plane and the start position into which they spawn. Only pilots who preregistered by 11:30 PM CDT on Friday, 26 September 2014, will be sure to get a uniquely-numbered aircraft. Registration will continue up until the race begins.
#1: Mobiyus
#2: BARRACUZ
#3: Stingx
#4: Patrick

FLIGHT PLAN: We will start by spawning on the numbered start positions at Nashville International Airport (KBNA). A countdown will be made by in-flight chat (3...2...1...GO!) and all pilots will take off on "GO!". The race will conclude in the Finish Box at Arnold Field in Halls. The first person to come to a full stop on their number will be the winner. The catch: Pilots will have to stop for fuel along the way. There are airports set up for refueling between Nashville and Halls: Humphreys County Airport, Henry County Airport, Carroll County Airport, and Beech River Regional Airport. These airports have been set up with fences to make force pilots to land on the runway and properly taxi to the fuel tank, then taxi back to the runway and take off.

AIRCRAFT INSTALLED: YSCAS Aircraft Pack Pilots will be flying the Piper Archers modified for this race. They have plugged fuel tanks to limit how much fuel they can carry, even at 100%, and have a range of about 30 miles short of the full distance from Nashville to Halls. They will not glide 30 miles, so plan to stop for fuel.

Just one week and thirty-eight minutes until the race. Still plenty of time to sign up!

Alright. :) The #1 and #2 planes are taken. I've got #6. If we have more than six entries, I'll have to make more paints.

I WON'T MIND DOING THAT! :lol:

Somehow I missed your post. Pilot order has been corrected.

UPDATE - 25 Sept. 2014

After tonight's practice run, I reviewed the replay and found that it took right around 70 minutes from start to finish, in case anyone was wondering how much time this will take.

There are still 24 hours left to preregister for the race to ensure you have a numbered aircraft. Registration will be allowed up until the race begins. See below for details!

By Saturday night I hope to have a finalized edition of the map and aircraft pack ready for download. The map will be modified to fence in Humphreys County Airport like I've done with Henry Co., Carroll Co., and Beech River.

Right now I have six planes and there are four of us signed up for the race. Anyone who registers by Friday night will be guaranteed a plane with a number. Anyone will be welcome to register up until the race begins, so if you decide to join at the last minute that will be fine. However, once we go past the numbered aircraft that will be released Saturday night, additional racers will have a special paint job that they will have to share. All aircraft will use the same data files, so aircraft behavior will not be changed from one plane to another.

-- Fri Sep 26, 2014 8:08 pm --

The map is finalized with new start positions at KBNA for up to 12 people.

-- Fri Sep 26, 2014 8:54 pm --

And Archer X is complete. The map and aircraft packs are both ready for the race. Everyone needs to make sure they are up to date before logging in.

PRE-RACE UPDATE

12:55 - Racers take positions
1:00 - The countdown to start begins when all preregistered racers have taken their position. Anyone who did not preregister should join and announce their entry by 1:00 to make sure they can participate.
"3...2...1...GO!"
~2:15 - Sometime between 2:10 and 2:20 most racers should have landed.
The server will return to normal operations at 3:30.
