I had a party that was happening at the same time as the event so i was split between you guys and the guests. I could not cancel the event because that would be rude and I could not cancel the party either. However, On Saturday, October 1st, at 1900 UTC note the time change We will be departing from BGTL and going to CYCY, and IF we have time, continueing to CYFB. The aircraft size will be limited by the ammount of room we have at the destination airport because of how far north it will be. But more than likely the Jumbolino should be the biggest aircraft that should be taken. But I will verify this for later. I will see you all soon! :D

Okay! I have been to the next destination, and it is 1000 ft longer than CYLT, but 20ft less wide. I am going to recommend the biggest aircraft on this leg to be the Jumbolino because of its stopping distance, but we are otherwise limited to the Cessna Citation series, Bombardier Challenger 650 (by D-ECHO) BAE 125, and the Dassault Falcon 50 (if anyone wants to refurbish the one from 2.4 because the current one has some issues that most may not notice but being one who took his callsign from the Falcon, I notice these things.) The only reason I am choosing to recommend these is because I am hoping to not kick anyone off the runway when others are landing. They are small enough to the point where there will not be an issue on landing length. I am hoping that it0uchpods will help me out in the AP department with my newest brainchild, the Epic Air Victory, 3d model curtesy of D-ECHO. I will see you in the friendly skies!

I'll let you know my choice.
I'll test.

October 1st @19UTC. I wrote my schedule book now.==that's a good timing, all time zones friendly==

IAHM-COL has aircraft of choice!

Hi All (and Falcon),

After reading Falcon's concern on Rwy lenght at destination, I did my tests and research.

Clyde River [CYCY] offers a runway of 3500ft length X 100

Therefore, I limited my choice to aircraft (i) whose specifications allowed me that, and (ii) were jet powered: Based on the examples provided by Falcon himself above.

Most Likely I'll add the livery shown above for this flight.

After doing some preliminary tests, I decided I'll join with the Learjet 35A, that offers an impressive landing distance requirement of 2550ft. Comfortably below Clyde Rivers' length.

See you all in the FG friendly skies!

I have been to CYCY with the 737-800 just to verify that I was correct, and I am unfortunately correct in my prediction. @it0uchpods, your MD-90 mght not fit, But there are a few aircraft out there that can fit into the airport, unfortunately we do not have a lot here in FG.

I am between the BAe-125, KB7 once made and the Jumbolino. I will have to do some testing.

I've learned in my life that it's important to be able to step outside your comfort zone and be challenged with something you're not familiar or accustomed to. That challenge will allow you to see what you can do.

C-137R (and so all the KC fleet) can operate from the CYCY, tested with a higher-than-normal amount of fuel to land there just to be sure and stopped around half runway with full flaps, speedbrakes, reversers and brakes. So a more "normal" landing can be done there without problems (depending on the pilot skills).

That said, time permitting I'll fly with you guys with the C-137R VIP aircraft.
I'd recommend it. ;)

@jmav16
that's because I didn't limit the reverse thrust... currently you can do 18000lbs of reverse thrust. Real life, it would blow the engine. Can you stop with using only 1.22EPR IAE 68.5N1 CFM reverser?

And not pushing breaks 100% constantly.

I've never done that. I use breaks when I get around 80 kts or less, and not constantly.
