IVAO members received an email from the network to inform them about Crystal Skies event to take place this saturday December 14th. Their goal is to achieve the maximum number of pilots and controllers connections between 06:40 pm and 07:20 pm UTC to gather funds for humanitarian aid project. The sponsor Aerosoft will give 1 Euro for each connection during this time frame. Pilots have to fly for 2 hours, and the controllers must manage their ATC position for 1 hour at least.

Maybe this will be your first mark in your calendar 2013, Crowded Skies 2013 on January 19th. Last year there were 2,300 connections to the network and it is hoped to be even busier this year. Check your headset, microphone settings and sound levels.

REX team comes with a new solution to make the pilots involvement go further. Latitude gives you access to a multiplayer pilot community with one time fee, at simMarket. Then, your flights will be integrated within Latitude with flight planning, fuel and payload calculations. Your flights are recorded and scored, so you compete with other pilots. “Flying competency, with careers, reputation and economy” seem to be the key words of their new products, if you were looking for goals for your flights in FSX and Prepar3d.

It’s the last race of the season. Having battled it out with the top 10 drivers in the iRacing DOM-GNL (German NASCAR League), has Robert Graf managed to drive his simFlight Chevy Impala home in the top group of finishers? We hear from him about how he did in the final race and his feelings on completing his first full season in the series.

With an updated build of iRacing and a new graphics card, Robert Graf takes on the simulated Texas Motor Speedway in round 31 of the iRacing DOM (German Nascar League). With only five races left in the series, we find out how this new setup seems to be suiting him. Click “Read more” for Robert’s full report of the race.

Our last posted report from Robert Graf mentioned that there had been a technical problem with round #24 at Atlanta, which hadn’t been resolved. We’re pleased to be able to say that it now has – or more correctly Robert has re-sent the report. Therefore, we apologise for this one being rather out of synch with the season as it happens, but please click “Read more” to see Robert’s report from round #24 of the iRacing Deutsche Online Meisterschaft (German NASCAR League) at the virtual representation of Atlanta, Georgia.
