vZDC Sunday Fundays -- Around the World

Postby Rick Rump » Sat Apr 25, 2015 12:17 pm

All,

It is time to endeavor on a flight of epic proportions -- A ZDC World Flight.
This will be a once a week, scheduled flight(s). We will be using the callsign of POTOMAC (ICAO: PCT IATA: P1) and your flight number will be the last three digits of your VATSIM ID (i.e., for me PCT581).
Flights will load up at 13:00 EDT for a 13:30 departure.

We need at least two pilots to do a leg. Legs may be moved up if the crew wishes, but only one extra leg may be done and this post will be updated. All flights are capable of being done (within ETOPS) in the 738 or wide-bodies.

POTOMAC AIR CHARTERS (Potomac) is a full-service charter (Part 135) airline featuring five single (business) class Boeing 737-800 aircraft and Boeing 737-700ER (single all business class with lie-flat seat) with a maximum passenger capacity of 128 passengers. Based out of Washington-Dulles Airport, the charter service flies passengers from cities as nearby as Richmond to as far away as Shannon, non-stop.

Not gonna lie, I'm pretty excited about this. I'm gonna have to miss tomorrow most likely, but I'll catch up through the week for next week.

Who's making the Potomac livery for the PMDG 73?

PCT01: KIAD-CYQX
Route: SWANN BROSS J42 BOS J575 YHZ YQY J577 YQX
Altitude: FL310-350
EET: 03:10
Distance: 1174

PCT02: CYQX-BGSF
Route: RIKAL 5855N SUBUD EDERI SF
Altitude: Fl310-330
EET: 03:15
Distance: 1104

Today's distance: 2278

The goal at Gander is to land and immediately take-back off, so load enough fuel for the TOTAL trip. Which would be about a full tank out of Dulles.

We will be overnighting at the fantastic Hotel Kangerlussuaq, for more information please visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotel_Kangerlussuaq for more details.

Day 1 is in the books. We all safely arrived in Greenland after very hairy approaches into Gander! Next Sunday, on to Iceland and Northern UK!

Fun times today! Also, since we were talking about it, here is the first in FS shot of the repaint on the 737-7ER. NOTE: There are alignments issues with this one so I am not done with it. I am not even sure how I am going to get the PMDG paint kit to stop being a pain so I am making no guarantee to be done by next weekend. :I My plan is only to do a -7 for the iFly and a -8 for the PMDG.

iFly is done. Starting initial work on the PMDG. Anyone who wants the livery will need to message me. Will most likely not be uploading this to Avsim.

As PTC is already a "real" world airline, the ICAO will now be VDC (Still saying as the callsign of "Potomac") with an IATA of P1.
