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

USA TOUR Leg 2 completed! :D

Welcome to Texas at the end of the second leg of USA TOUR today Sep2nd!

The positive of it: I have lots of fun. I personally thank all the support, patience and friendliness of Omega, who served as ATC in Texas' Airports.
The negative side of it: It is still quite lonesome back there. We missed scheduled pilots too.

I keep the good aim though, and I will reinvite everyone else to join me in this tour/competition. Perhaps along the lines I can grab enthusiast gamers that feel like I did: A deal lot of willing to fly but not obvious "next destination".
For details, if you get interested, visit my older introductory post here

http://www.flightgear.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=17257

Wrapping up, USA tour has visited Pennsylvania, Oklahoma and Texas with this course:
(leg1) KPHL -> KOKC _CitationX; (leg2) KOKC -> KIAH -> KHOU _Seneca II

Image

If you get encouraged to join, remember I really welcome everyone that is willing to, regardless of experience and ability to flight. I can say much of my own, and my landing is still some kind of weird "bouncing" back to land :$

Flight Track for USA Tour

Here is my tracking files. Weirdly enough FGTracker recorded my KOKC->KIAH flight in three segments, although they were flown continuosly.

http://mpserver15.flightgear.org/modules/fgtracker/?FUNCT=FLIGHT&FLIGHTID=4061200
http://mpserver15.flightgear.org/modules/fgtracker/?FUNCT=FLIGHT&FLIGHTID=4061321
http://mpserver15.flightgear.org/modules/fgtracker/?FUNCT=FLIGHT&FLIGHTID=4061592

After touching at KIAH I took off to KHOU, by ATC instructions.

So you want to be a competing player? What to do?

It is very simple, just follow this steps.

1. complete the very simple inscription form that request for
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dG9ILTlkVGU5RmlMLVNiOF9aeGNrRmc6MQ


callsign: This is your player identification. Expect to keep it for the lenght of the game, for your points to properly accumulate!
Playing time: The time (UTC) that you plan to start your trip --that is launch flightgear in the departing airport.
email: This is for us to provide you with the ROUTE information and validate your starting time. Make sure you check your email before start the game

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR PLAYING TIME IS WITHIN THE SERVING RANGE OF THE DEPARTING ATC TIMES

(example:IHMACOL is requesting to fly at USA TOUR TRIP1 at 17:10)

2. Check the e-mail reply! You will receive the following information:

1. Approval of callsign and/or representation
2. Exact time of your playing time. What time you are expected to launch your flightgear game. Keep yourself in +- 5 minutes range!! :)
It is not your take off time, it is your game launching time!
3. Flight Plan; It indicates the ROUTE you are expected to follow, Fligh Level, and any other leg specific information
4. Starting gate; We will provide you with a gate or location(in latitude/longitude/heading ) you use to launch FlightGear.
5. Server; we will suggest which multiplayer server we expect you to play at, so we can try to administer server loads.

3. Launch your FlightGear game using the directions provided in the email as above, and contact ATC tower to begin fly. It may be convenient that you
revise the H5 manual on ATC instructions if you are not familiar with this. OR Simply, remember, do not innitiate your engine or move your plane without
ATC clearance!! :)

GENERAL INFORMATION

The USA Tour competition is a community organized competition of virtual flying on the FlightGear platform. We believe this is the first of its kind;
and we will be happy if you join and play with us in this multiplayer event that will take place in the FlightGear servers.
This two-year competition consists of bi-weekly events, where contestants will gather together and fly from and to a main Airport in each of the
Largest City of every state or territory on the U.S.A, and arriving its last 57th trip to
FlightGear's Home base, San Francisco International Airport. The whole game travels through a total distance of about 85ooo nm, or about 4 circumnavigations!!

The competition is not A RACE!. contestants are expected to follow IFR flying rules, and will be directed by a real person serving as ATC at every airport.
The distance for every leg is highly variable, and they can be as short as 20 nm or as long as 7900 nm. Every trip departs from the arriving airport of the
previous game and goes to the following state or territory. The leg location will be only revealed up to 2 weeks before the event takes places, and
always after a previous event has concluded. No player (with the exception of organizers) know these locations.

Every contestant will play with the selected aircraft for the given leg. Aircrafts will/may be different for the legs and it will also be anounced only at a maximun of 2 weeks
before the event takes place. We will explore many of the game's aircrafts, including jets, civilian, military, mono or multiple propellers, and helicopters.

A player do not have to attend every event. A system of points is used to qualify every competing pilot performance and a cumulative total will be use to determine
the player's rank. Points are assigned to fly time, accuracy for take off, route, and landing, and follow of ATC proccedures --NOT BASED ON SPEED.
ATC serves in the role of pilot rule

EVERYBODY is welcome to join. From pilots wanting to play, or seasoned simulator flyers to absolute FlightGear begginers.

ATCs will be serving the airports using preferentially FGCom, but also with the chat function of your FlightGear program.
R.M.S.
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
