Christmas in Tahiti - 2017 Announced

WestWind announces the annual Christmas in Tahiti - 2017. This is the airline's gathering for the end of the year at Ken's retirement home. All pilots are invited to attend, flying either online or off. Links for the custom scenery for Tahiti can be found on the Scenery page as Ken's place is a fictitious spot about 20 NM East of Faaa, French Polynesia (NTAA). Come and join in the fun, catch the benefit of two Christmas Days and New Years days by flying back and forth across the international date line.

We look forward to seeing all our pilots in Tahiti for Christmas. Operation EastWind, the Puerto Rican hurricane relief exercise will continue on through this event. This will provide a break for that too. 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.

The situation in both Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands continues to develop at a slow pace. San Juan Airport power has been restored, but is subject to infrastructure failures. The November 9th power failure appears to have been restored, but reliability remains an issue moving forward. All other secondary airports in the interior are opan at this time.
