Hi All,

I am new to the concept of the world flight and am considering participating this year. I was wondering what kind of aircraft to take?
I was thinking on taking my PMDG 777 but I wasn't sure if it would fit into some of the airports on the route.

Cheers

Hi RAAFF18TOPGUN,

The official teams fly a mix of 747, 737 and A330.

We spot a lot of 777's along the way so that would be an excellent choice. Just make sure you fly something you are very comfortable flying as many legs get VERY busy.

Good luck from Team Airbus (Aussie121).

Thanks Sam! I am gonna work on my hours in the 777 as I just got it, but I know it pretty well already (extensive manual reading :P) it is just matter of physical experience now. I assume Team Airbus is flying A330's? Just another question, do you have a payware model and which one is it? I look forward to participating, it seems like a brilliant event and a fantastic idea even if I have no money to donate after purchasing the 777 XD.

Thanks

We fly a modified version of the Wilco A330. We will be transfer to the soon to be released Aerosoft A330.

If your confident in your aircraft and radio procedures you'll be fine.

What Callsign do you use? We'll listen out for you...

Good luck mate

I have just flown the route over the last couple of months in a prosim 737-800, some brilliant airports with the route, some hard to find charts as well despite having navigraph and simplates. its going to be interesting to see a 747 getting into and out of Paro, especially if it has some weight on board and landing towards the SE and taking off to the NW. Paro is going to catch some people out if they havnt been there before also Paro you need the payware scenery otherwise you get a big hole in the ground. Parking with 50+ aircraft in queenstown will be interesting and no parallel runway taxiway. I enjoyed some of the high altitude airports in south america, you really notice the altitude having an effect, N1 over 40 just to taxi and a long run up for takeoff. Juneau is fantastic as well.
