Christmas in Tahiti - 2017 is Under Way

Papeete, French Polynesia: -- 18:50Z, 12/15/2017 -- Flying Weather -- VFR -- 30% PROB rain
Note SIGMET A6 for THUNDERSTORMS moving East to the Northwest of Tahiti.
SIGMET B7 for SEVERE ICE FL170 to FL200 STATIONARY over Tahiti.

We have been enjoying VFR weather with occasional high clouds and some thunderstorm activity in the area. Temperatures are in the 80's and 90's year round and the water always seems to be turquois blue broken by occasional lighter shades in the shallows. Ken's Lagoon has dolphins near the landing are, so caution is advised during landings and taxi operations.

We look forward to seeing all our pilots in Tahiti for Christmas. This event normally starts after Thanksgiving and ends after New Years Day. Again, we invite all pilots to attend. Let us know if you want to "jump-seat" down by posting in the forum threads.

There are scenery links on the scenery page for FSX, FSX_SE, and X-PLANE. The link above is for FSX, X-PLANE is a little further down the list. The FSX version will work in FSX_SE.
