Story

WorldFlight is an annual event in which 15 full-sized simulators, similar to our own, are flown in unison for a week, 24 hours a day, circumnavigating the world in 45 legs. The event tests both the crews and the simulators to the extreme and is all for the purpose of raising money for each of the individual sims charities of choice. This year we have set ourselves the goal of raising £7,500 for the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity.

The flights will be conducted online on the VATSIM network, providing live Air Traffic Control through most of the countries that we visit. A 30-minute turnaround is allowed at each stop and during that time the incoming crew will be fully briefed as to weather conditions along their route as well as other operational requirements.
