This Saturday, FGUK's group flight will be a comptetitive challenge. We will be flying timed stages between waypoints from Gibraltar to Cornwall, with points awarded for precision arrival times and bonus opportunities. There are restrictions, too, which if broken will result in penalties. The results will be announced on FGUK.eu and across our social media platform after the weekend, and the event will be filmed and streamed live on FGUK TV. Competition is open to all - simply turn up and take off!
A great night was had by all at the Group Flight on Saturday 27/4/2013. Organised and led by thebroons the brief was simple:
"Take home message: Pick an Allied fighter or light fighter bomber.
Bomber group takes off from VEGT (Guwahati Intl)
Fighter group takes off from Shah Mokhdum (VGRJ)
Both groups meet over Sylhet (VGSY) "
I just wanted to post a quick message to say that, in terms of membership, November 2012 has been our best month ever.
16 Active and participating people have signed up and started using the site.
We now have 99 members who visit at least once a month, although most are a lot more regularly. We've never been hung up on membership here at FGUK and have been more about community but I'd really like to say how great it is to have such a robust number of active members.
FlightGear has such a small active and friendly community as it stands and it's great to see that we are a significant part of that.
Thank you to everyone who has made this possible.
The FGUK team.
