Flightnight March 9th, Low Level Helicopter Fun

23 Feb 2019 22:08 - 07 Mar 2019 09:54 #42115 by geed


OK gentlemen, you are being invited to a fun introduction flight to helicopter low level operation.

We will take off at LIPG and follow our track towards LDRG. Positions on the track are all GPS positions and are meant as a guide.

We will of course use the terrain to our advantage and will fly right into every ditch regardless of how shallow it is.



At LDRG we will have our mid time break and continue our low level flight on our second leg towards LDPL.

Co-Pilot with FLIR view

Best helicopter for this night is the Westland Gazelle in it't MIL variant as it is equipped with a FLIR view. As the next low level flight will be a tactical flight we need to be able to operate the FLIR. So, youa re more than welcome to get into the cockpit as a co-pilot to try out the FLIR. If we got time we can do one or two simulated battle positions where we put the helicopter in a hover, peek up behind a hill and try to do recon of the area in front of us before we continue on our track towards the target airfield.



Get the latest FGUK model of the Gazelle in the hangar.



Leg Planning

We will fly two legs. The first leg will get us from Gorizia in Slovenia to Rijeka in Croatia. The second leg will get us from Rijeka to Croatia's Pula on the peninsula of Istria. Both legs are prepared as flight plans for the Flightgear route manager.

Please download the flight plan for both legs here

Before each leg you need to load it into the route manager.

If I get the time tomorrow I will try and add a couple of vehicle positions for us to do recon on.

This will then be a scenery package that everyone, interested in testing his recon skills, needs to be installed as a custom scenery folder and added to the scenery folder list on top of everything else.

Being in my local area, I have to be there. May I stick to different choppers throughout the night? Was tempted for a Tiger in leg 1 and Gazelle for 2nd.

Pleasure relocation flight from Casarsa to Gorizia with the Gazelle and I've decided to stick to it all night long.

I noticed last night that the Westland Gazelle passenger set file was not showing up. I have since fixed the issue and reuploaded the gazelle package.
If it is not showing for you, you can ether re download the Gazelle package, or you can just download the replacement set file and over write the damaged file by downloading the file from here:-

That camo is waaaaay too reflect-y to be effective camo.

Most of the sky is actually below your feet.
