To provide a fun event for flight simulation pilots to compete with others from every corner of the globe, and to test the flight and navigation skills of pilots during 23 flights re-creating the 1919 England to Australia Air Race.
The England Australia Air Race Centenary
We are joined again by WestWind Airlines in presenting this Centenary celebration of the first great Air Race from England to Australia in 1919.
We begin at Farnborough in England and wend our way to Darwin in Australia, some 9,000-9,500 miles to the South, depending on the route that you choose.
The total flight distance is significantly greater than our past events, so we are providing several different route variations to accomodate any aircraft available in the various Flight Simulator versions or X-Plane.
The daily flights will be spread out over the time period from September to December. We will be allowing total flexibility in reporting dates up the end of December for all flights.
Four sets of flights, sets A to D, will be available covering the 23 legs.
Flight sets A to C will cover the entire length of the route, while set D will select individual sectors from the A flights covering about half the full route length.
No one under 13 years of age may participate without a parent or guardians approval. Have them email me at gaar15director(at)gmail.com for special instructions on signing up. Replace the (at) with @
