The annual Round the World Race is soon upon us (Feb 2012). If you’re not familiar with this, there are four teams participating, AVSIM, FlightSim, SOH, and iFlyonline. We race, in real time, around the world in “relay race” fasion, in legs of around 700 nm. Race leg takeoff and landing times are recorded in the multi-player forum. SOH won this event in 2008 and it’s always a lot of fun. One of the keys to victory is having enough pilots available so that we can keep the baton moving 24/7 for about 5 days, as it’s critical that the baton not be left “idle” at some airport in eastern Siberia while everyone is sleeping… We about to hold another practice starting this weekend. Drop over to the multiplayer forum and check it out. No experience is necessary. If you can land your favorite fast plane at night in bad weather, your hired!
