  1. I know the times are not conducive for my favorite Aussies, but if per chance you are up, come play with us! EVENT: Dash8 Q400 Training TOPIC: All about the Q400 from Majestic Software TIME: Feb 8th(Saturday), 10a PT / 1p ET (1800 UTC) LOCATION: ts3.digitalthemepark.com (TeamSpeak 3) Greetings Aviators, We are please to offer a special Dash8 Q400 training session offered by Jeff Whitaker. The Q400 is a twin-engined, medium range, turboprop aircraft. Introduced by de Havilland Canada in 1984, over 1,000 Dash 8s of all models have been built. Majestic Software has recreated an advanced simulation of this aircraft in every aspect. It contains an independant Flight Dynamics Engine (FDE), capable of running at a much higher rate than the default FSX FDE, and free of the inherent problems pertaining to the default aircraft flight dynamics. It provides realistic wind simulation, icing effects, enhanced propeller physics including the propeller discing and auto rotation, effects of the propeller airstream on the wing lift and the icing effects on the propeller, wings and the flight surfaces. Jeff and DigitalThemePark will be providing a special training session surrounding this aircraft. Learn how to best setup and config, weight and balance, all phases of flight, and the various systems. This is a day you will not want to miss. We shall see you there on TeamSpeak at ts3.digitalthemepark.com
  2. EVENT: DC9 Retirement Flight Guest Speaker TOPIC: All about the last famous flight of the DC9 TIME: Jan19th(Sunday), 6pm PT / 9pm ET, 0200 UTC (one day only) LOCATION: ts3.digitalthemepark.com (TeamSpeak 3) Greetings Aviators, It's the end of an era in aviation. The McDonnell Douglas DC-9, a plane that once ruled the skies, has finally retired. The DC-9 first took flight in 1965 and production stopped in 1982. While most airlines phased the planes out in the '90s, Delta overhauled its fleet and kept them in the air, until now. On January 6th, Delta Flight 2014 from Minneapolis to Atlanta marked the last scheduled commercial flight for a DC-9 on a major U.S. airline. Please join us for our guest speaker, "Kyle", in a post-flight party all centered around this momentous flight. This is a day you will not want to miss. We shall see you there on TeamSpeak at ts3.digitalthemepark.com

  7. I have spoken with Zoo about the recordings...that 2.5hr workshop ended up being over 1G and being a hobby for us, we are just not set up for this--we understand your frustrations and that being said: I am in the process of chatting with another digitalthemepark member that wants to use all of Zoo's notes/charts that have been created for the Q400, and he has offered to lead the workshop for your time zones/international. All of this just came up an hour ago, and we are looking into what dates work best, as soon as this is finalized I will post yet again and then hopefully we can satisfy y'all Aussies as well! This team member is definitely being gracious to offer his time and excitement of sharing all that he has learned about the mighty Q (I think he has flown it each and every day since day 1 of release!) and Zoo has been extensive beta tester for Majestic and worked one on one with many real Horizon Air pilots...I think you will find the workshop very informative. Soooo, stay tuned and I will have info for you! Thank you for your interest, ~Rowan
  8. Awwww, gorgeous Q--even with that paint! My fave so far....I flew on "Shrek" & "Fiona" several times
  9. excited about the Pies tonight as well ( who I "go" for ) --up against undefeated Cats---hope the Pies can pull this one out unfortunately it's just audio when the game is being played, can't stream anything over here in the States until the next day. But the commentary is quite good and I actually listened to radio when I was at the MCG watching the Pies last month, audio helped me tremendously since I was up in the "nose bleed section" and the players looked like ants! cheers ~Ro
  10. GAWD, I messed that one up ...frak me! SOoooo sorry Trev, I promise to keep my excitement more contained from now on! I had the live audio playing as I was hunting around some forums and thought of YOU right then and there with the win/end game. *MASSIVE SIGH, I feel like crap now! ugh so I will now just post "how about that game?!" hope we can still be mates ~Ro also just a heads up that digitalthemepark is giving a workshop on the mighty Q400 tomorrow -- this is what they have posted: EVENT: Dash8 Q400 Training TOPIC: All about the Q400 from Majestic Software TIME: Saturday, May 18th and 25th, Starting at 9am PT (1600 GMT) LOCATION: ts3.digitalthemepark.com (TeamSpeak 3) Greetings Aviators, From the perspective of a regional airline, we will be walking through the various systems, best setup & config, weight & balance, checklists and procedures as we all "sit" in the cockpit and run through an actual flight.
