If you would like to see other people taking part in the flight live in LittleNavMap, you might be interested in the Transmitter application, which achieves exactly that.

Further Information

Pilots are requested to follow published standard instrument departures and standard approach routes, taking off one-after-another with generous separation. While we do not operate air traffic controllers, we at least want to avoid total chaos. Between the SID and STAR, pilots are free to follow routes of their own design.

We are an inclusive, relaxed group – we recognise that some may not have flown IFR before, or operated the commercial jets, so encourage mentoring from more experienced pilots as much as possible.

Although take-off is scheduled for 8pm BST, it may be worth arriving early to setup your aircraft, and/or to help others set-up theirs. Use the streaming functionality in Discord!
