NOTAM Tour Bids & KACARS Delay

Posted by Norm Richards on 03/19/2018

NOTAM-2018-03-19

Tour Bids & KACARS Delay:

We have noticed that the tour bid flights generated are not immediately being recognized or drawn into KACars and as a result KACars may be loading a previous tour bid/fight leg.

In an effort to minimize these previous bids being loaded in KACARS, please close the KACARS after flying a flight leg bid then generate your new bid before restarting KACars.

Once KACARS is running and the flight leg bid is loaded, make a quick confirmation that the bid flight in KACARS has the correct departure and destination ICAOs you are intending to fly.

The developer of our KACars has been notified and is working on a module fix for the KACARS.

Alaska Adventures VA Presents: Doug's Hawaii EFMM - April 24, 2017

In conjunction with Doug’s Hawaii project: EFMM – Escape from Misty Moorings, a getaway from our normal territory comes to Alaska Adventures VA as a new flying excursion – Opens April 24, 2017.

We don’t get out of out of our normal flying areas very much, alike RTMM, but a change is a good as a rest, they say!.

Doug has spent many hours on his personal project and as he has designed and developed his own locations or intersections within all the photoreal and other addon scenery pieces, and thought it would be fitting to take a getaway into Doug’s EFMM and fully explore his “Hawaii”. (Brad get well soon! so you can go on a bit of an Aloha rampage too!)

There are 20 POI filled flight legs of this EFMM excursion which explores the Islands in detail and all of the the many POI or intersections that Doug has created are featured. This excursion includes all of the POI/Intersections to date: up to April 12, 2017 with location HIA20–Lava into the Sea and will continue to incorporate new Hawaii POI locations into the excursion "on the fly" as they are developed.   

A special thank-you to you Doug for all your efforts and sharing your personal project with all of us - and to the team here at RTMM for your ongoing contributions. 

Again all are welcome to come and explore this AKA getaway excursion into “Doug’s Hawaii”: EFMM scheduled for opening at Alaska Adventures VA on April 24, 2017.

In conjunction with RTMM: RTMM's Blue Wave Energy Partners (BWEP): Exploration into the second section of the BWEP: Richardson Highway, comes to Alaska Adventures VA as a flying challenge and opens March 20, 2017.

The planned aircraft for this second exploration trip: Low and slow single engine prop (non-turbo) fixed wing: DHC-2 Beaver, Maule M7, C185, or C206: and perhaps you might want to add ski-wheel or tundra wheels if you are running winter season. These make great aircraft to use in this exploration tour. There are AKA liveries on the Alaska Adventures site and additionally on the RTMM BWEP page, RTMM’s Klaus Tröppner has also created some great BWEP repaints for these designated aircraft.

You can also use helicopters to explore if you wish: specifically helicopters operated by the BWEP: refer to Klaus Tröppner’s Helicopter repaints: These include BWEP liveries of the following models that you can fly in this tour: Erickson S64, Bell212, Bell412, AS332, Bell 206, Bell 222 or the MD530.

In conjunction with RTMM: RTMM's Blue Wave Energy Partners (BWEP) -  exploration into to these great scenery add-ons are coming to Alaska Adventures VA commencing Feb. 20, 2017.

RTMM’s BWEP scenery project: "Blue Wave Energy Partners" (BWEP) pipeline project attempts, as much as possible, to replicate the characteristics and overall challenges facing a crude oil delivery platform similar to the actual Trans-Alaska Pipeline.  To date: RTMM BWEP scenery project has been completed all the way from the Port of Valdez northward up to Fairbanks (or PF58 Executive Field).

There are still many miles of pipeline to be placed,  as well as many associated BWEP terminals, refineries, construction sites, airstrips, side trip locations, AI traffic, dispatches etc to still be built by the design team for the remaining portion of the pipeline route from Fairbanks to Prudhoe Bay, Deadhorse, Alaska.

As the talented creators and designers here at Return to Misty Moorings (RTMM) continue their BWEP pipeline scenery project, Alaska Adventures VA will feature the completed scenery work, in depth, via VA tour explorations.

The first RTMM BWEP exploration at Alaska Adventures will be the first BWEP section that has been completed: BWEP Southern Alaska, which commences at Valdez. In the VA exploration trip, we will first travel the Port of Valdez to explore all of the new BWEP scenery pieces that have been created in the Harbor: some awesome scenery pieces indeed that can’t be missed, then followed by a visit to Doug’s Klutina Outfitters before picking up the pipeline as Brad has laid out and heading northward towards Paxson.

The routing in this initial AKA-BWEP VA exploration will explore the pipeline, the new associated RTMM side trips as well as the BWEP pipeline dispatches. (New multi-way-pointed Flight plans will be included in the VA Tour download as well as all the tour specifics).  The tour download for this trip will be a must download which will include all details as to the requirements, flight leg routes, flight plans (.pln), required stop-over locations at some interesting BWP locations, even a new Photo OPS of various BWEP spots and also investigating BWEP dispatch areas as well as many other items of importance.

To fly the BWEP, you require all scenery pieces from the libraries: Main Object library, new Med-APP combo Library, BWEP Library and all of the RTMM BWEP add-on scenery downloads: Southern Alaska, Richardson Highway, all of the side trip scenery pieces, the RTMM Dispatch scenery and all the BWEP dispatches activated and will be referring to the individual Dispatch documents on the BWEP page: P001M through to P014E.

Be sure to visit the RTMM BWEP page for all the required pieces.

RTMM BWEP page Link:  http://return.mistymoorings.com/bwep/index.php

Our first AKA-RTMM BWEP exploration trip (Southern Alaska), will explore in detail this area and will have some very interesting flight legs to help us explore the RTMM BWEP.

All are welcome to come and enjoy this (first) RTMM BWEP Exploration trip (Southern Alaska) at Alaska Adventures VA - scheduled for kick off Feb. 20, 2017.  www.flyaka.com

To advise that we have lots of flights and tours at Alaska Adventures VA which use RTMM scenery to enhance the trip. Some are active while others are not as they are more seasonal type flight legs.

Here is a listing of recent tours, consisting of flight legs that are built around RTMM scenery locations and RTMM scenery enhancements:

Tour 39. From the PNW to the Land of Mistys
Tour 40. Exploration into RTMM's CIRP (Part 1)
Tour 41. To the Summit and Beyond - CIRP (Part 2)
Tour 46. Anchorage, Denali and the Arctic (RTMM Snow Dog Tours - SDT1)
Tour 47. Along the Arctic Coastline (RTMM Snow Dog Tours - SDT2)
Tour 48. Vancouver Island Seaside Floats (Vancouver Island Project)
Tour 51. Into the Interior - C-47 Short Fields 2
Tour 52. RTMM's "Operation Barnstormers"
Tour 53. RTMM's "Dispatch 006" - The Lighthouses
Tour 54. Twin Otter Spotter - BC to the Gulf of Alaska
Tour 57. BC Lighthouses - Ocean Falls to Vancouver Harbour
Tour 59. Challenge of the Doratidi Trail (RTMM Snow Dog Tours - SDT3)
Tour 60. Seward-Chenega Bay POI Excursion
Tour 61. Exploration into the PFJ-Owikeno-Kimsquit Area
Tour 62. RTMMs The Lost Treasure of Timuquan (Based on Brad Allen's Timuquan Missions)
Tour 63. Kenai, Chugach and Prince William Sound Exploration (Tour opened this morning)

Each tour has it's own accompanying tour download with details, flight plans, skyvector map links and of course the scenery requirements. (We also have many other tours that run in the areas of Alaska, NWT, Yukon and BC that are not operationally dependent on RTMM scenery but by having all the pieces of RTMM scenery installed adds so many enhancements to all of these tours).
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tour 63 that opened this morning and it's journey explores the area of Kenai, Chugach and Prince William Sound.

The trip begins at Nenana (PANN) travelling southward into the Kenai Peninsula and into Western Chugach: beginning at Mile Marker 13.5 along the Seward Highway heading North from Seward, Alaska and end at Mile Marker 46.0 which is just above the Summit Lake SPB (52Z) then eastward into Prince William Sound on the south coast of the Gulf of Alaska.

This trip contains exploration into many settlements on the sound, which contains numerous small islands; including Cordova and Whittier plus the Alaska native villages of Chenega and Tatitlek. Most of the land surrounding Prince William Sound is part of the Chugach National Forest; the second largest national forest in the U.S. Prince William Sound is ringed by the steep and glaciated Chugach Mountains. The coastline is convoluted, with many islands and fjords, several of which contain tidewater glaciers. The principal barrier islands forming the sound are Montague Island, Hinchinbrook Island, and Hawkins Island. So get ready for detailed exploration into these areas. This is a warm up tour of sorts ending at the largest port at the southern terminus of the Valdez. (In a later adventure, we will explore the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System itself starting at Valdez with the RTMM BWEP pipeline scenery add-on enhancements when complete).

If interested in flying in these areas, (RTMM scenery installed (of course) and might want to fly in a VA environment please feel free to pop by at Alaska Adventures VA and give it a whirl. Thanks to all the designers and creators here at RTMM for their hard work in creating all the scenery and enhancements which have built the RTMM world.

Thanks to Doug for the new table that summarizes, in various ways. From viewing it, put together a nice little POI tour for those who might want to fly seven very interesting legs in the Seward-Chenega Bay area in a VA environment.

So the seven legs covers over 50 different point of interest in this area: from natural landmarks such as glaciers and lakes to man-made structures ie: cabins, mills, seaplane bases and various other points of interest and of course scenery by RTMM.

This new seven leg tour starts on Sept 12, 2016 at Alaska Adventures (flyaka.com) and all are welcome.

A special thanks to Brad Allen (RTMM), Doug Linn (RTMM), Rod Jackson (RTMM) and the many other great designers and creators here at RTMM.

(Doug thanks for the new table. It is a fantastic add which highlights almost "everything" and makes it simple to see the exploration possibilities in this scenic area.

The Anchorage, Denali and the Arctic SDT VA Adventure  - At Alaska Adventures -  http://www.flyaka.com/

Anchorage, Denali and the Arctic Adventure is a new tour that features custom RTMM addon scenery that showcases not only Snow Dogs Tours (SDT) of Alaska but Return to Misty Moorings and Alaska Adventures with custom locations to visit along the way. This tour is active March 1st, 2016.

The RTMM add-on scenery for this tour is contained within the tour download on the Alaska Adventures site.
At each location, you will find that there are new RTMM and SDT/Alaska Adventures hangars present at most of the airports covered by this VA tour.  (Thanks to Brad Allen for the story line, the add-on scenery and the design of this tour).

The recommended aircraft for this adventure is the Maule M-7 260C "Orion". It's great for short fields, cruises fast, a good climb rate, maneuverability and the aircraft visibility is good. 

We hope you enjoy the Anchorage, Denali and the Arctic VA Adventure. 

Thanks again Brad for all your help in the design of this tour and for the special addon scenery.

Hey RTMM Pilots. The 2nd part of our CIRP VA adventure (At Alaska Adventures) is now active.
"To the Summit and Beyond".

Story line: We are in the middle of the ice fields and there is still a lot of ground left to cover in our exploration as you now realize as part 1 of the CIRP adventure only made it to PF47. There is the rest of the ice field stations themselves to finish (PF48 and PF49) plus there is variety of other activities and locations within the CIRP and vicinity that needs our attention. We will be using the C185 aircraft for this CIRP continuance to the Summit as our Maule aircraft are still in for modification, but again, you can use any similar type aircraft which might have wheels and skis as we continue our exploration of the CIRP before we finally head back to Misty’s.

Note: (Flights AKA672-T through AKA676-T) were designed for RTMM excursions as land excursions in the CIRP Hovercraft MK35 or the CIRP Stalwart "Alvis" Amphibious vehicle V431. If you wish to try to travel via these land vehicles you are able to do as we have now added the both of these amphibious land crafts into our vehicles module. Just be sure to down them from the RTMM CIRP Page at:  http://www.return.mistymoorings.com/cirp/#e and install them to your SIM and you also can try from a land perspective as well as from the flying these legs from the air.

To the Summit and Beyond adventure: has 20 legs: Flights AKA669-T through AKA688-T. (Have an eye around Soule Halfway Cabin and Kitsault Gold Pan: look for a flat area to land as a huge storm buried the airstrip yesterday.. or in lieu of an aircraft, you can also attempt navigation in the amphibious land vehicles. Flight plans and maps are in the downloads section for those who might want to use them.

Alternate land excursions Flight Legs:
AKA672-T PF48 Via Frank Mackie Glacier to CZST,
AKA673-T CZST Via John Jay Weather Stations to PF48.
AKA674-T PF48 Via Mt Lindeborg to CZST,
AKA675-T (CZST) Via Salmon Maintenance Run to PF48,
AKA676-T PF48 Via Summit Lake Maintenance to CZST.

A special thanks from the Alaska Adventures staff to Brad Allen and Doug Linn and all the staff and designers here at RTMM for providing great scenery and all the enhancements for us to be able to explore this area in a VA environment.

As you may be aware, “From the PNW to the Land of Misty’s” Adventure is a brand new adventure that was activated on Oct 22nd, 2015 on our VA site. Alaska Adventures (http://www.flyaka.com/). This short 17 leg adventure is the introductory tour that takes us into the RTMM scenery areas for future exploration in our adventure tours. RTMM is our new partner in the flight sim community and being as such, we shortly will be offering new adventures in the RTMM scenery areas.

And the new adventures are on the way. Thursday Nov. 5th, 2015 the first adventure created in an exclusive RTMM Scenery area was activated: “Exploration into RTMM's CIRP". This is a 20 leg adventure exploring the RTMM locations in the Cambria Ice Fields Project in our VA environment.

As mentioned, we will be creating new adventures in the RTMM scenery areas. We invite all pilots to visit the RTMM site and start building all of the scenery enhancements into their Simulator systems as this scenery will be required for some of the upcoming adventures into the RTMM areas with the first being the RTMM CIRP adventure.

Stay tuned for updates on the new RTMM projects. Thursday Nov. 5th, 2015, the “Exploration into RTMM's CIRP - Air Adventure” was activated. Flight plans as well as maps for each flight leg of this new adventure have been made available in the Downloads section of our site. And more VA adventures in ORBX and RTMM scenery areas are forthcoming.

All are invited to come join us to fly in our adventures done in ORBX and RTMM scenery areas at our VA environment.
