Journey around Africa event?????

Postby paul01942 » 03 Apr 2012 17:45

Hi guys,

Coming on the back of the excellent JATA event that I've just completed my mind has gone into overdrive.

I have plotted a journey around the amazing continent of Africa encompassing almost every country within Africa bar a couple, hopefully passing a few iconic scenery views on the way!
I
This will be another Convair aircraft event or any other twin prop A/C landing and departing some amazing airports and airstrips mostly paved but the odd one grass.

Not sure what your interest levels are for this but once I've completed the interim routing I would be happy to forward it over to you, I've tried to keep the routines between 130 miles to 840 miles again I will be really interested in your comments.

I look forward to any feedback

Paul

We can consider this for some time in the future as there are already plans underway at EMT level for another event encompassing all the Divisions to coincide with a real world event occurring later in the year.

Thanks for the suggestion though.
