Saturday Flights

August 27: Haitian Chopper Chase!

8pm UK time.


We'll meet at 2000 UTC at ICAO: MTPP - Port-au-Prince, on the beautiful island of Haiti. Bring your choice of helicopters from the FGUK Hangar that can sustain 120 - 130- KIAS for the duration and at altitudes up to 3500'. This can be a hilly/mountainous area so you'll need some degree of agility.

From there we will proceed to MTCH and then on to MPMC where we will refuel and refresh and then head to and follow the coast line as far into the Dominican Republic as we can until closing at 2200 UTC. we'll play "Follow the Leader" and I'll be flying the daVinci Corporate livery in my Hughes MD500. Comms are on TeamSpeak as always. Please list yer choice of 'Chopper in this thread so we see a minimum number of Blue Gliders.

See ya all there!
