Thank you for visiting DC-3 Airways and welcome to the DC-3 Airways World Rally 2011, which will begin on the 29th of October 2011. We are again offering a selection of ten interesting and challenging flights from around the world created by Senior VP Tim Cook and our President - Norm Hancock. The rally will be spread over thirty days giving each pilot a three day 'slot' in which to fly each flight. More details on when each flight may be flown are given in the World Rally Rules.
The menu gives you a series of self explanatory buttons which will link you to the various pages of the DC-3 Airways World Rally 2011 web site. The first area you are advised to visit is the Rules page. If you are willing to abide by the few simple rules and wish to join us for the World Rally your next action is to hit the ‘Join’ button. Welcome to the DC-3 Airways World Rally 2011.

How to Fly the DC-3 by Charles Wood..........
Each flight has been given an individual ‘Start-up’ situation where the departure airport and the weather has been correctly set. This will create an equal situation for everyone. The weather will at times be extreme and the ability to apply the correct Wind Correction Angle will be very important. This can be achieved by correctly using an E6-B calculator. Every good pilot will have at least a mechanical version of an E6-B in his flight bag to enable him to make a multitude of flight calculations. You won’t have to buy one though; you can download an electronic version by following the link below. If you are unfamiliar with how to use an E6-B please spare a little time to learn how to use it correctly.

No FSNavigator or similar flight plans are provided for the flights. Instead you will be provided with a ‘Flight Description’ to refer to which should be sufficient to guide you safely through each flight. You may of course use the flight description as a guide to create your own flight plan if desired. The flight descriptions are written in both MS Word and PDF. If you have difficulty reading either of these formats following the links below will provide you with the necessary “Readers”….
