Frequently Asked Questions
Who is invited?
Everybody is welcome to join. Our official invitation includes members from EasternHops, Seattle Virtual ATC, MS Flights, Boston Virtual ARTCC, Fly Virtual, and Elite PremAir Virtual.
What is the expected attendance?
CCF's in the past have ranged from 50 to 100+ people. We've even had to open up secondary multiplayer servers because there were so many people! We are anticipating similar attendance as past events. Join members from all over flight simulation in a massive group flight and meet and greet.
Am I required to talk to ATC?
Yes, but only on departure from PSC and arrival to SEA, on the primary server. If we open up a second server, those wishing to fly uncontrolled may connect there. Aircraft wishing to remain uncontrolled may land at a satellite airport, and then fly over after everybody else is on the ground at SEA. ATC communication will be through Teamspeak. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Are formation flights allowed?
Yes. Please keep your formation within 1/2 mile and 50ft altitude. Expect to perform an overhead break at SEA, or land two-by-two. Only the lead aircraft need to be in contact with ATC, so you can fly into SEA without a microphone, in formation. Please email email@example.com with questions.
How long is the event?
We are anticipating the entire event to be less than 4 hours, with approximately 1 hour 15 minutes per hop (45 minutes in cruise). You may also connect 30-45 minutes before event start to socialize.
What simulator platform?
We will be utilizing an FSX Steam Edition server hosted by Eastern Hops. This was chosen due to the platform's wide user base and its built in connection system. This way we don't have to install other connection software.
What aircraft are authorized?
All participants should use a Beechcraft King Air. The default version is recommended, however addon versions may be used if they substitute to the default on multiplayer, and do not flood the server.
I don't have updated scenery!
Free airport updates can be found online from sites like Simviation.com or Flightsim.com and can be installed in just a few minutes or less. You may still participate if you don't have the "third runway" at KSEA, however you may experience some delays on arrival. Do not land on the wrong runway. Tell ATC if you do not see three runways at KSEA. Use caution, do not land on Taxiway Tango; near collisions have occurred in the real world.
