VATSIM UK is proud to present our first "UKFIS Afternoon" event!
Trade the magenta line for some VFR Charts and a wet compass as you traverse the skies of South England. Fly cross-country or alternatively take part in the Pilot Training Department's latest Flight Training Exercise, taking you from Stapleford (EGSG) to Goodwood (EGHR) and testing your navigational skills as you go. Expect plenty of ATC from which you can request services should you desire.
The following positions have already been booked by controllers on the CTS:
EGLF_R_APP - Farnborough LARS EGMC_R_APP - Southend Radar EGKB_APP - Biggin Approach More bookings may be made after the release of this post, and these bookings can be viewed on the CTS.
The Flight Training Exercise will be linked here closer to the event. You can find a brief summary of the FTE below, however unlike most FTE's it is not compulsory to follow the assigned route. For this event you have the freedom to fly anywhere in the UK, provided you start at Stapleford and end at Goodwood, and you will complete the FTE.
Depart Stapleford (EGSG) via runway 12L/03R Route South-East on track to the Tilbury Docks Once passing the Tilbury Docks, route towards London Biggin Hill Airport (EGKB) After Biggin Hill, turn on track to the town of Guidford Once overhead Guildford, track the Midhurst VOR South towards Midhurst After Midhurst, proceed towards Goodwood (EGHR), joining the circuit to land
