Around The World Charity Event 2015 ( OLD TOPIC )

#1 Post by Brodie Murdoch » Wed Jan 28, 2015 2:45 pm

Hey guys im just letting you guys know that i maybe hosting a charity event at the end of this year. The cause of this event is to raise money and awareness to a chosen charity of our choice. We will be flying to over 40 countries in 6 continents over a short period of time non stop with no breaks in between. I would really appreciated if a lot of you participated in this event by either flying or just controlling us in the air. I will be flying non-stop but you can always pop in and start flying with us at any time.

No dates have been confirmed yet although i am trying to aim to start either on a Saturday or Sunday and finish by Wednesday and we are still in the process of planning out the airports etc all though i would like to say that over 10 locations will be in our airspace and i am thinking of making Wellington International the starting point of this event but also the final destination of this charity event.

More Information will be posted in upcoming months so stay tuned

If you have any inquiries or concerns please feel free to PM me in the forums or flick me an email at Brodie.aroundtheworldcharity@gmail.com

Cheers and have a good one

Evening Everyone,

Information about ATWCE

If you want to control as a ATC position for info will be released soon
Routes will be produced for legs but will not be released until after September 1st 2015
Aerodrome charts for airports will be released to you guys with links to them later in the year

Aircraft Types

Personally i have no problems what type of aircraft you want to fly but the aircrafts that i'll consider on flying are the Boeing 747-400, Airbus A380, Boeing 777-300

Aircraft Livery

To be honest there is no specific livery prior to this event but i would have to say that seeing that the chosen charity is from New Zealand so i would go with a livery from a New Zealand airline eg. Air New Zealand

Callsigns

I have no yet decided on this but there maybe a custom callsign given to you like for example WESTPAC1 etc.

Pilot Registrations

Pilot registrations for those who want to fly will open on Wednesday 4th March 2015 at 04:00 zulu

- How To Register -

You can register by private messaging via the Vatsim forums or either by sending me an email at Brodie.aroundtheworldcharity@gmail.com

Registration Must Contain Following Info

- Full name

- Type of aircraft and livery
- Have you flown in New Zealand Airspace before ?

In return ill reply to your message or email will additional info about the event also maybe with a custom callsign as soon as i get the chance to do so.

- Note that if i do go with the custom callsigns they will be given out in number order and will be based on the time you message me or email me so i guess first in first served.
