The "Labours of Hercules" of flight simulation, your ultimate challenge!
Have you got the gut to try it?
you interested by a very long-range rally? Do you
like to fly props aircraft? Do you wish to visit remote and unusual
of the ordinary traveler’s routes? Do you like to deal with all kinds
of weather and situation?
It could maybe take you up to two years or maybe less than three months to complete the task. But in any case, this very demanding job is a unique experience that shall bring you a lot of expertise in the management of all the flight parameters linked with the handling and with the navigation of a twin engines prop aircraft.
Sometimes in Asia or South America, you will have to carefully plan your route, so as to use the valleys instead of having to climb to very high altitude to fly over the highest peaks. Yes, it is an adventure and you shall certainly meet some unpredictable situations. That’s part of the fun!
The best way to discover the World as it is, is to use real weather and seasons all along the tour and to set the aicrafts reality factors to real. Should you have an accident (crash) during the tour, you are allowed to restart from the beginning of the leg where it happened. Let say that you saved your life thanks to your parachute and that the company was forbiding enough to buying you a new aircraft (but not too frequently, please!).!
Why is SPA organising such a "Round the World" Tour?
The idea is to show the virtual SPA colours all over the virtual World, to catch the attention of the virtual public and the virtual medias on our virtual company.
That's good for virtual business and it could lead our development department to plan new routes in some places where there is a good demand for new virtual passengers and/or freight connections. Useless to say that your venue will be announced in the different places visited by the RTW tour and you should be welcomed by the press an local TV. Thus get ready for interviews and very virtual festivities.
By the way, there is an old section in the SPA forum called "Round the World Diary" where you can tell your virtual adventures during this great tour!
All pilots who will complete all the legs of the round trip aboard the SPA DHC6 Twin Otter will have their name added on the SPA HALL OF FAME's AWARDS PAGE
