FSX Multiplayer Ridge Soaring Tyagarah – Murwillumbah

This was an FSX Multiplayer ridge soaring adventure along the escarpment to the west of Murwillumbah in Northern NSW Australia. I flew this event with Harry Osh, the task designer. We both flew jet powered motor-gliders (Model: ASW20 CL-J B21 by Wolfgang Piper et. al.)  We used Active Sky Next to provide historical real-world weather and CumulusX! to generate the ridge lift.

This was another entertaining and enjoyable adventure in virtual gliding but my preparation for this multiplayer event was a bit rushed and there were some consequences from which I learned some valuable lessons.  Moreover, this ridge soaring event and subsequent post flight testing has uncovered another impediment against Active Sky Next being used to enhance the virtual soaring environment.
