For some time now, the great folks at Digital Theme Park have been hosting multiplayer flight servers for everyone’s enjoyment. They have regular tour events, ranging from the Pacific Northwest to New Zealand. They feature guest speakers, provide piloting classes, and otherwise just have a lot of fun flying the skies together. Today, we’d like to bring your attention to a particular type of event they’ve been hosting:
DTP’s IFR challenges are there to provide you with some particular aspect of flight, be it enroute navigation, departures, arrivals or approaches that are difficult and challenging to master. We think that the IFR challenges are a great way to learn something new, fly new places, test your skills, and have fun flying with other like-minded people. To that end, we are encouraging every AOA member to join us at DTP for future IFR challenges that we’re putting together in coordination with Digital Theme Park.
IFR challenges are currently being held every other Wednesday at 2000z / 1PM PDT. The next challenge has been provided by our own Jordan Krushen, and we encourage any of our members that have specific challenges in mind for our other members (as well as the general public) to submit them to us.
You don’t need any client software. The Digital Theme Park server uses FSX’s built-in multiplayer support. Just connect to the DTP TeamSpeak server at ts3.digitalthemepark.com and someone will help you get connected.
The IFR challenge details will be given at the appointed time, and it will be up to you to perform whatever preflight planning tasks are necessary and be on your way. Expect some surprises, expect some challenges, and of course, expect some IMC.
The next IFR Challenge is next Wednesday, May 9th at 2000z. It should be noted that for those that can’t make it at the scheduled time, once the event is live the info will be posted for all to use, so you’ll be able to set up your weather as indicated and fly the challenge yourself offline whenever you’d like. We hope to see you there!
