River Visual 19 KDCA

Postby legoboyvdlp » Sat Nov 21, 2015 12:50 pm

Goooooood Morning!
*drum roll*
Here I present:
RIVER VISUAL 19 CHALLENGE

Go on, try it! Post your best videos.
Points will be awarded as follows:

Firm Landing: KDCA'S runway is fairly short. You don't want to be over 400fpm, but you should ideally touchdown firmly at around 150fpm to 250fpm.
Awards 10 points.
Floaters deducted 5 points, hard landings 5 points deducted.

Spoilsort: Proper use of the spoilers and reversers is essential. Get those speedbrakes up; get them reversers going.
Awards 5 points.
Late spoiler extension or reverser extension, late being more than 5 seconds, deducts 5 points.

vFBI: Airspace around Reagen is narrow, due to the Pentagon and Whitehouse. Admire them on the way down the river, but if you as much as put a single inch of wing into Prohibited airspace, expect a couple of F16's.

Awards 20 points. Entering Prohibited airspace immediately deducts 300 points.

Slippy: The final turn is tight. Keep your passengers happy by completing it without skidding or slipping.
Awards 10 points.
Each slip or skid deducts 1 point.

Overrun: At the end of Reagan's runway lies a body of water. Don't pack your swimsuit. Make sure you don't go in, without melting the brakes.

Evidence of hard braking (like, really hard) will deduct 5 points.
An overrun deducts 50 points.

Stressed Out: Tight is the turn. Try to line up properly. Landing while crabbed puts unnatural stresses on the airframe.
Straight approach, no crabbed landing: 50 points
Crabbed Landing: 30 points deducted

Each successful landing earns 150 points.

If we gave everybody in the World free software today, but we failed to teach them about the four freedoms, five years from now, would they still have it? Probably not, because if they don’t recognise their freedoms, they’ll let their freedoms fall

There is a problem with the landclass data, the river starts only at waypoint 'SETOC' for FG.

IAHM-COL's application to River Challenge

Hey Lego
Here you are

Since yesterday we arrived to KDCA, I firstly completed a Reagan-Dulles flight in the HondaJet
http://mpserver15.flightgear.org/modules/fgtracker/?FUNCT=FLIGHT&FLIGHTID=6659793

After that, and figuring out how to best record my flight, I performed the requested approach on a Dulles - Reagan flight, Visual at 5000; departing RWY 30, arriving RWY 19, River Visual as charted

METAR: Wind on strong-headwind RWY 19 and gusts.

Code: Select all

KDCA 051652Z 19013G19KT 10SM BKN021 OVC029 26/22 A2973 RMK AO2 SLP066 BINOVC T02610217

Here is the video for your ease of point accumulation system:

Enjoy! :D

Awesome flights, wonderful winds!
Do watch your speed; 380 is kinda high, right? :D




Code: Select all

Firm Landing: +10
vFBI: +20
Crabbed Landing: -30
Successful landing: + 150


150 points, good job! A few points deducted for a bit of a crab / skid, but considering the weather good job!

I usually do, but as you saw, my departure went skidding, and I almost lost the rwy, so I took off with a heavy right hand torque, and took me some effort getting a climbing profile there.
That made me loose a bit concentration, and when I noticed I was full throtling... :oops:

But then you saw the Hondajet behavior, as soon as I told her to relax... she came down fast and firm to a more apropriate 230 KIAS.

I'm happy with that :)
I came a bit high on that last final (note the four whites). So I was getting speed in the last turn (Damn! that River approach last turn is hectic!!). The winds were gusting and that pushed me off-middle lane, and since I was coming VFR and manual that's how a last sec correction was kind of applied. I throw the plane off the TDZ, and touched down a bit later to prevent the crabbing to break me, and to get a bit more drag out of the speedbrakes.

The hondajet can make really short landings... so RWY 19 was plenty of space, as you could finally see -- I exited runway with plenty of roll-distance to spare :P

The weather was marginal for that attempt too. Ceiling is required to be @three five-hundred for River, and I got overcast 2 nine-hundred. Luckily FG didnt draw me that overcast, cause, again since I came high, I may as well just have missed the whole place.
(the white house, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Pentagon are all noticed on the vid! :) )

Also, I think this is the first time you get to see the Hondajet's zkv1000 in action :)

I just did this nicely. Sorry to say, but a small turn on the end of g/s is not really a challenge. So i will not spend time filming it. As a compensation i will give you a 747-8i on rw 8 at lowi, with the turnaround procedure from approach 26.

That's a hard one. I tried it once, and met the mountain :( (Don't recall what passenger jet I was trying it with, but one of the big boyz)

GS? Well, really, it was supposed to be visual, and rwy 19 is a fair turn. Maybe you are thinking of rwy 15?
