CCB_015
Remote Passenger Pickup – Off Field Landings


Event begins immediately following the Sunday Flight. This flight will be run a second time on August 2nd at 1400 ET (US) 1900 GMT

First of all, there are a number of required files that you need to have installed for this adventure. Complete information may be found in the “Sticky� section of the Com-Central Bush Flights forum. Please download, install, and follow all instructions there if you haven’t already done so.

The CCB_015.zip file contains the following:
* CCB_015 Briefing The briefing document.
* CCB_015 Briefing_files folder Contains images for the briefing.
* CCB_015 Kneeboard A concise printable page with flight plan information.
* CCB_015.fsn FSNav flight plan. Move or copy this file to your fs9\modules\FSNavigator\plan folder.
* Flight Simulator Files folder Contains GPS flight plan and saved flight to begin this adventure. Three files in this folder are: CCB_015 VFR Atlin to Juneau Intl.PLN, CCB_015, and CCB_015.wx. Move or copy this folder to your My Documents folder and overwrite when prompted..
* CCB_015-Sectional.jpg A partial sectional chart roughly describing our route.
* Com Central Bush Flights folder Adds four mining camps to the Glacier Bay scenery. Move or copy this folder to your fs9\addon scenery folder and activate it in the fs9 Scenery Library if needed. Overwrite if prompted.

The Adventure
Out in remote valleys reside four friends, all of whom are gold prospectors. They started over 30 years ago at a single location and over the years they’ve divided their efforts and moved to different places in search of their fortunes. Eventually, they all found gold and have been living in their various valleys, laboriously extracting gold by hand. They all jealously guard their strikes’ actual locations, and have made their homes several miles away from their mines. Every three months or so, they contract a bush pilot to pick them up with the gold they’ve extracted and transport them all to Juneau, where they cash in the fruits of their labor and spend some time together in ‘the big city’. We’re the bush pilots they’ve chosen this time, and they’re trusting us to keep secret the locations of their homes. We’ve chosen to use the Volpar both for its large passenger compartment and for it’s large payload capacity (gold is heavy!!). There is just one cloud raining on our parade – these guys pay very little attention to personal hygiene. They live alone, in the wild, and they’ve just learned not to care about it much. We’ll be paid very well for our services, but we’ll need to spend a little cleaning up our aircraft’s interior (fumigation and such) once we’ve dropped them off at Juneau.

See you there,
-Bob-

...they’re trusting us to keep secret the locations of their homes.


Does this, theoretically for the purpose of this flight, have an impact on the policy of taking (and posting) screenshots of particlar sections of the flight, such as anywhere near their homes?

Of course!! Yeesh. And Criminy!! They're paying us in GOLD, for Pete's sake!! Shocked Shocked

I mean, just cause anybody here can download and read a full, illustrated briefing with detailed maps and flight plans doesn't mean it won't be a secret!! Mr. Green

I won't tell...

OK. Just wanted to be sure the locations wouldn't be compromised, other than the maps, briefing, scenery files and detailed flight plans. Should be sufficiently secure! Wink
