Thanks Tom for again putting up this event which is always popular with our rostered pilots :)

Everyone, feel free to post what flights you did here, i'm always interested see what routes you take. I'll start the ball rolling below:

Leg 1 : Vatry Chalons (LFOK) - Cairo (HECA). B738. Crew Pass. ASL Airlines.
Leg 2 : Cairo (HECA) - Abu Dhabi (OMAA). A321. Scheduled Flight. Etihad AIrways.
Leg 3 : Abu Dhabi (OMAA) - Muscat (OOMS) Home Airport. Dassault Falcon 7X. GA Division. Personal aircraft.

I then did a positioning flight to EDDF on the Presidential Air Source 1 B737 BBJ OOMS-EDDF. Going on to then do the Bonus flight EDDF-LOWS Lufthansa A319 which had a very foggy arrival and a perfect landing if I say so myself :lol:

Every year since the Home For The Holidays Event has been running, I enjoy looking for and completing the flights required. Probably the longest running event that Air Source has. It is nice seeing alot of our pilots flying this event.

My flights were as follows,

Special Crew Pass....KFLL to KMSY
Schedule Fight.......KMSY to KCLE
GA Flight..............KCLE to CZBA

I look forward to next years Event. In the mean time, Fly Safe and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all our Air Source Pilots.

CHEERS!!!

Hi All, Looking good Again,

Well, this has been quite a bit of planning. I had to re-position my Citation X to OMDB, KPDX-KMVY-EIDW-OMDB, now repositioning to get to EDDF as follows: OMDB-RPMD-WSSS-RJAA-EDDF. I have been following the arrival is the next departure for quite a few years now.

Home for the holiday's Flight Plan: I am incorporating the Special crew pass into my schedule, but with the reduced scheduled flights out of LOWS it was challenging.
Special Crew Pass EDDF to LOWS (Lufthansa A319)
Schedule Flight LOWS to OMDB (FlyDubai 738 Max)
GA Flight OMDB to VTBS (Citation X, my newest owned GA Aircraft)

I switched to X-Plane 12 now as well.

As usual great Event, thanks for setting this up again. :!:

Happy Thanks Giving, Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays :D

Nice set of flights Andre. I was just thinking, next year I think i've been with AirSource for 20 years I think around the time you were around at the beginning yourself. Doesn't time fly! :)

Thank You gentleman, Yes for still fun simming, Well Norm 20 Years was in February 2022, so for me, it's 21 years in Feb 2023. Yes, time certainly flies when you're having fun.

Looking to keep going as much as I can.

Happy Holidays!

Leg 1: Special Crew Bid EDDF-LOWS LUFTHANSA A319
Leg 2: Scheduled Flight LOWS-EIDW AER LINGUS 320
Leg 3: General Aviation - EIDW-KPHX Citation X

If someone can edit the hours, I would be appreciative. I had hard time with CTD in XP12. And did not reset the time when restarting. It didn't take 18 hours, more like 11.

Hello Howard,

I'll see what I can do, as it is much more difficult to edit hours after the PIREP (rather than before while the flight time is still in the myAAS database).
