“MEBAR 2013” is an event in the Great Air Rallies Grand Prix series conceived by Bluegrass Airlines.
The rally will be held over the Easter holiday period (hence its name!) commencing on the 23rd of March 2013 and finishing on the 7th April 2013, a dedicated web site opens on the 1st March for pilot registrations.https://mebar.mutleyshangar.com/index.htm
MEBAR will provide an event for flight simulation pilots of all skill levels, from the novice to the more experienced pilots, to test their flight and navigation skills. The flights involve either and / or a combination of VOR, NDB and “dead reckoning” navigating under day Visual Flight Rule (VFR) and / or Instrument Flight Rule (IFR) conditions. Variable departure times and weather conditions will also exist for each flight.
MEBAR consists of 5 Legs around the UK taking in England and Wales, starting and finishing at our spiritual home of Southampton EGHI or “Mutley Field” as it is known to locals! There’s a test flight to be completed prior to registration to establish your aircraft type and cruising speed; We’ll be keeping it simple by asking you to select either a single or twin prop aircraft.
Further details of the test flight, rally route, rules, PIREPs, etc., can be found by clicking on the navigation tabs at the top of the MEBAR 2013 web site pages. A dedicated forum section is open now for Q&A’s, chat and screen shots etc. https://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/forum/95-mebar-2013/.
We are delighted to announce that our sponsors again for this year’s event is SimStop.com powered by Flight1 who have generously donated 5 of their published flight sim titles for a prize draw.
We’ve all had such an enjoyable time in our last two events that we couldn’t wait to get this year’s event under way! So, fire up your sim (FS9 or FSX) and get cracking on the Test Flight! MEBAR 2013, the fun starts here!
