Club Events - Sherburt Dip
A Tour north and east of our new base. Briefing by: John Lygo
Briefing Thursday 17th May 2018
Overview For the month of May you are invited to dip into the delights of the Yorkshire countryside. You must fly FROM and return TO Sherburn-in-Elmet – EGCJ. The points of interest to find are as follows: Hornsea Mere, Filey, Fountains Abbey, Goole Docks, Kelk Lake (between Bridlington & Driffield), and Great Lake (near Malton). The round trip is approximately 105 nms and should take about an hour in a C172. I have not listed the sites in any particular order; you have to find where they are and then fly to them in any order you wish. Wikipedia/Google will be a great help in finding some of these POI's. You may also just wish to do a few circuits. If you prefer, you may combine both elements of the exercise & really test your skills, together with those, & the patience, of the controllers. It is possible that some of these POI's may not be visible in all versions of Flight Simulator; nevertheless, do your best & perhaps you could submit some screen shots of them.
Start Time and Place This event is scheduled for Thursday May 17th 2018, starting at 7pm British Summer Time – 18:00 UTC. This event is to be flown on VATSIM.

Weather Before starting we will check the weather. If it isn't suitable for our flight, we can of course change it in the sim, but please use VATSIM weather if at all possible for greater realism, and a more interesting challenge.
ATC At the time of publishing this event, ATC has not been confirmed. However, it is hoped that there will be some ATC provided, be it by Club members or by VATSIM personnel.
What Aircraft can I fly? Any aircraft can be flown in this event as long as it is within the EASA Light Aircraft category.
Plan G No Plan-G files are included in this package. You should compile your own flight plan.
Radio Discipline Take care not to let our Teamspeak chat cut across ATC. Stop any conversation immediately the R/T comes alive, then continue if "he wasn't talking to us". This is difficult because when transmitting on Teamspeak you can't hear the R/T. So be brief on Teamspeak, and be aware that ATC might be trying to get through. If anyone hears an R/T message which seems to be being ignored, just say "ATC is calling G-CIXN" if you have identified the callsign, or "ATC is calling us" which is a cue for everyone to be quiet on Teamspeak until ATC call again (which they will). Remember too that if asked to "Stand By" by ATC, you do not reply - not even "Roger", but simply wait until you are called again.
Remember also that there may be several different ATC frequencies in use, and you may not be able to hear when communications are taking place. Make sure you have set and know how to use a Teamspeak mute switch.
