This is the 3rd of 5 related to the first few months of the Berlin airlift.

I've had a change of heart about this session. Instead of 4 formations departing different locations into Berlin, I thought I would introduce departures from Berlin (Gatow in this case) and all headed to ETHS Fassberg.

Therefore ALL participants will fly this route.

FSX & Non DCA pilots should start engines on the ramp and use the taxiway Alpha which parallels the active runway 08L
P3D and X-plane aircraft will utilise taxiway Bravo to line up.

Lite ATC will be available to alternate the departures between the two columns of aircraft.
Although the session starts at 18:00Z, if you are in the session and ready any time from 17:45z ATC will give you clearance.
Departures will be staged at 60 seconds spacing so please adhere to the altitude and speed restrictions to ensure we don't crowd each other.

Only 3 TS3 channels will be in operation:
Departures
En-route (switch to this at cruise altitude)
Destination Switch to this before Braunscheig NDB

Weather is CAVOK
set simulator date to 19th August 1948 and time to 16:30z

A reminder if you have Orbx Germany north or south to deactivate them as they generate swathes of buildings and vegetation across many airfield locations.
