Pilot of the Month September 2014MYA28 Tom Inglis
Captain Tom Inglis has been awarded this for his continuous efforts and consistent placements in the Top10 each month.He is one of our younger members, a mind of useless as well as sometimes useful information but only occasionally and also a Current World Record Holder.His enthusiasm is second to none and would be better if it was not for his parents pulling the plug at 23:00 on the dot. Give this young lad a control box and a RC helicopter and he is sure to have hours of fun with it and tell us all about as well.

Septembers' write up, for MYAIR
Another 20 pilots have been removed this month ,mainly repaint collectors and nosey people looking to gain ideas and images for their own VA's, Doesn't bother us but it's easier to ask rather sneak around :)
Duxford was an amazing day, although only two eventually arrived it was still an awe inspiring day with Photos, Videos, Great Sights and Sounds and even a moment without a dry eye in the house, the Sisters. I have been too many air shows and can honestly say I have never heard a crowd go quiet like they did for these two majestic girls, i remember saying to Jonathon and my two boys, they're here 5 minutes before they were visible solely because the hairs on my neck were up on end with the awesome sound of 10 Rolls Royce Merlin engines, truly amazing and not a dry eye in the house.
I have great pleasure announcing a huge Congratulations to Andy King for flying and fi
I have great pleasure announcing a huge Congratulations to Andy King for flying and filing enough flights to get in the top 10, for hours this month
I have rambled a lot this month now let us continue with what you really want to know
Remember as a VA we don't ask for much from you guys but please at least log a flight once in a while., again I know some of you guys are not into the multiplayer flights etc, and we appreciate that and you have been logging flights as well so well done guys.
A couple of big announcements this month, Firstly:
MYAIR have some Admin roles available.

This is a very dynamic role that has been under used yet holds potential for vast enjoyment.

Secondly the MYAIR WORLD TOUR.
This starts on the 2nd October and is a long term event , with the tour will depart from Jersey and then heads over to Exeter it then continues to gather speed as we head off to all corners of the world in this Adaptive, Demanding and Exciting tour.
Adaptive: because of the choice of aircraft you will need to complete individual legs from Helo's to the Heavies there is something for everyone.
Demanding : Because of the Approaches, Terrain, Visibility (or lack of) that we can expect to see or find along the way.
Exciting : As this is a new venture for MYAIR and its pilots.
September In General
Just like last month where we had three new aircraft not in the top 10 again we have some new names on the list , such as the BN-2A-B, B1900C, the crash8 and also a lovely girl the L-1049 Super Constellation a huge grin is on my face seeing this Radial in the top 10 not just this month, last month as well!
The first part of September was still our official holiday month so we were expecting a lower flight ratio to other months however look at these .
Septembers' stats are as follows
Top 10 for stats for last Month in brackets()
Total Flights :135 ( 122)
Top 10 Pilot Flights: 104
Total Miles :44680 (48195)
Top 10 Pilot Miles: 41120
Total Hours : 236.42 (246.19)
Top 10 Pilot Hours: 198

Average landing rate:-340ft ( -341ft )
Average flights a day :4.5 (3.9)
New Pilots : 4
Awards Issued : 5
To get in the top ten this month you had to have a smoother than-85ft/min landing, and to keep out of the top ten hardest you had to be better than-576ft/min .
The award of the wooden spoon goes to:
As for the greasers, again it's the same names all trying to outdo each other, however John Wright wins Gold and Adam Norman Jonathoin came a very close Second and somehow Dave Taylor mashed his way somehow to the Greased Club Lounge, question is will he slip back to the Bumpy Side .
Start of the ROUND THE WORLD TOUR 2014
Plans are afoot for a Christmas Event watch this space
Awards for this Month:
Several Pilots have attained New Ranks through hours flown these will be added during the month
Pilot of the month
This month's Pilot of the Month Award goes to :
Captain Tom Inglis has been awarded this for his continuous efforts and consistent placements in the Top10 each month. He is one of our younger members, a mind of useless as well as sometimes useful information but only occasionally and also a Current World Record Holder. His enthusiasm is second to none and would be better if it wasn't for his parents pulling the plug at 23:00 on the dot. Give this young lad a control box and a RC helicopter and he is sure to have hours of fun with it and tell us all about as well.
Greased Landings Awarded to :
1. John Wright- 19ft
2. Jonathon Saunders - 20ft
3. Dave Taylor -34ft
Hardest Landing Awarded to :
Torquay's finest has once again managed to win this prestigious award, he was the first to deny all knowledge of this landing by insisting that it was a great landing, only when the Blackbox was replayed to him did he realise that not only had he stalled the aircraft but had in fact crashed got it back in the air(with a little help) and continued on getting his passengers to their destination in little more than a wing and a prayer.
The usual Hour awards will be added throughout this month as the pilots reach the levels
Well done guys and let's keep the hard work up.
Mentioned in Dispatches

The issue of changing the aircraft type has come up again, so to simplify things here are some pictures....
We are using flightcode MYA152 as an example but the routine for changing airframe is the same on ALL flightcodes.
First select the flightcode MYA152 and this is what myacars will look like...
To change the airframe...
Go to the airframe section and click on the dropdown box 'Down Arrow', this will either bring up a list of all aircraft OR turn blue, if the box background goes blue use your arrow keys to navigate up or down.
Select the airframe you wish to use.
At this stage it is VERY important that the GREEN TICK to the right of the drop down box is CLICKED
Now IF the above has been done correctly the airframe information has been changed as you can see in the image below, now you can start your flight in the airframe of your choice :-)
