VNAF AirFest Coming Soon - Summer 2016

Post by VNAF ONE » Thu Jan 14, 2016 9:50 pm

OFFICIAL

The show goes on to 2016! This summer, expect yet another VNAF AirFest Air Show and ultimate YS event experience. It's hard to believe it but this summer's show will be the 5th anniversary of VNAF AirFest and mark 5 consecutive years running the biggest online multiplayer event in YSFlight's history.

With that, it's hard to say it but after AirFest 2016, I will be cancelling any further AirFest shows indefinitely. This is due to real life career goals and commitments and I'd rather not worry about running AirFest each summer (it takes at least 2 months to prepare plus whatever time is needed for map preparations). I have had a blast running the show so far and it would be appropriate to give it one more push and cement the legacy.

More details will come in the late spring as the time comes closer and dates will not be decided until likely the beginning of the summer. Until then, please post any ideas, suggestions, concerns, etc. you may have for the show. Please know that I will do everything to the best of my ability to make sure it is a great event, but as usual it's more than a 1-person job so be patient with me.

Thanks for your understanding. Yes, it's okay to get excited this early ;)

If this is on a weekend that I don't have to work, I'd be down to fly an F-20 Demo!
Check out my website YSDecaff for all my tutorials and addon releases.

Feel free to ask me a question! I'll try to answer it as well as I can or recommend a more knowledgeable member if necessary.

Sounds awesome. But honestly, I think it would be a good idea to make some sort of checklist or tutorial about setting up an airshow in YS, that way more people would be confident in putting one on and we could have more. Can't wait for AirFest!

The Mahora Demonstration Team will be announcing their presence at VNAF Airfest 2016 -- as soon as I can get a 4-man formation going. If anyone's willing to volunteer to fly with us, please let me know :)

Update:

The Grun TFS will also be in attendance in a Four-ship formation.

When the VNAF show post is made, all the information will be there. I wouldn't expect that until late July though

Those of you who are always asking to help, I have a way you can do that for me. If everyone could post an idea of what months/weeks would be better for the show anywhere between June 1 and August 1, that would be great. What I mean by this is if you have exams, internships, etc and think a certain time period will be better than another, that could really help me gauge the audience. The times for the show will stick to what they are currently and have been for the last year or so and the show WILL still be on a weekend.

FYI, I will most likely be using the 2015 version of YS for the event and prior to that, I may be working with Flake to see if it's possible to use OYS. I will probably allow very limited replays for the event but they must be, y'know, approved by me ;) .

Please put ANY and ALL questions regarding the event here. I'm usually not prepared to answer them on Teamspeak and here everyone gets the answer so I don't have to repeat myself 10 times.

Still looking at a window between June and August. Crow and myself have multiple real life shows snuggled in every other week so I probably won't get you guys a good date until at least April.

Until then, I want you guys to start prepping some teams! I know Kujo is busy preparing the Blue Spectres. The Blue Dolphins may likely come together for the show. I have been talking to some of the Black Eagles about getting them back this year. There will most likely also be a full virtual display from a real world jet team (maybe 2, or 3!). When I tell you guys I'm going all out on this, I truly mean it!

So for this year's show, I will be doing an informal pre-registration for jet teams. If you plan to bring in a jet team with more than 2 aircraft LIVE, send me a PM with more details. If you are doing a replay, send me the details of that as well. I will not be doing replays of any less than 4 aircraft and they must be fully coordinated display teams. Their approval is subject to me and what I want. Depending on pre-registration, I may be able to decide whether AirFest will last 1 or 2 days.

There may also be some sort of live stream ;)

If this is really going to be the last major airshow in HQ, I might very well sign up. My SR-71 has been sitting around doing nothing for at least 2 years now.

I don't think it'll be the last major show ever, but might be the last airfest, at least for a long time.

Surely somebody with a little extra time on their hands, a descent computer, and a good internet connection can step up and do the job.

Running an air show in YS isn't necessarily hard, but it does require some decent commitment and decent technology (a good comp, connection, and some software to help make things easy would help). Pretty much most people can do it, but that commitment part is the one that separates the willing from the able.
