NEW EVENT: OLYMPICS 2024

Postby AS37 Norm Edwards » 07 Jun 2024 01:54

The time has come again for AirSource to rise to the challenge in conveying athletes, support teams and patriotic supporters to head off to the Olympics, this year to be held in France.

The format will be different to past Olympics events in that it will be conducted in two phases.
Phase A will consist of Crew Pass flights to France before the Olympics start and Phase B will consist of Crew Pass flights from France once the Olympics have concluded.

At the time of this announcement 176 countries will attend the Olympics but 175 Crew Pass flights will be created (France won’t be flying to itself!).

:arrow: Phase A flights will be posted very soon and will consist of 75 flights and will expire 24th July 2024 – when competitions start.

:arrow: Phase B flights will be posted at the conclusion of the Olympics 11th August 2024 which will consist of 100 flights and will expire 27th October 2024.

There will be an awards system for pilots logbooks in place as has been the case in past Olympic events as follows:
:arrow: Bronze Medal – pilots must complete at least 2 flights to France (Phase A flights) AND 6 flights from France (Phase B flights) in order to receive the logbook medal and $V8000.
:arrow: Silver Medal – pilots must complete at least 4 flights to France (Phase A flights) AND 8 flights from France (Phase B flights) in order to receive the logbook medal and $V12000.
:arrow: Gold Medal – pilots must complete at least 6 flights to France (Phase A flights) AND 10 flights from France (Phase B flights) in order to receive the logbook medal and $V16000.

Crew Passes (CP’s) will be set up separately in two series so look for these series codes in the Crew Pass Gateway section:
:arrow: Phase A flights: “OLYMPICS2024-TO”. https://air-source.us/operations/crew_p ... ICS2024-TO
:arrow: Phase B flights: “OLYMPICS2024-FROM”.

I will be coordinating the event and should the CP numbers fall short I will post more. Any questions, please post in this thread.

As usual, we set up events for your enjoyment so have fun and pitch in!

Norm,

This question may come up for clarity - but does a "to France" flight that does not land in Paris still count as a "to France" flight?

MHLM to KATL. This flight is not "to France" however is it considered one of the Olympic "to" flights, so this counts toward a medal, correct?

Hi Tom. Yes that would count. The principle I apply is that the pilot is conveying passengers at least for a leg of their two leg flight to Paris. I'm hoping that in two leg flights our pilots will carry the passengers onward to land in Paris - to complete the job ;)
