Sat 7/10 11 AM PDT CTAF skill training at Jean (0L7)

I have thought about setting up a session like this for quite some time. So you know what? Let's give it a go! What about a CTAF skill training session on a Saturday at a timestamp that might suit people better than the early morning fly-outs? Let's pack-up the pattern (or even two patterns!) at Jean Airport (0L7) near Las Vegas for some CTAF Skill training this Saturday 7/10. Listen carefully, communicate brief and efficient and make the right judgements. Different aicraft with different speeds do require some exciting decisionmaking.

11 AM PDT sets the timestamp to 2 PM on the eastcoast and 8 PM (20.00) in the evening in most of Western Europe. Hopefully that suits a lot of people so that we will have one or two fully loaded patterns.

Just ramp up at 0L7, switch to the CTAF 122.9 and listen what other pilots do. Let's first fill up the lefthand pattern with max 5 aircraft and when full another 5 can pack up the righthand pattern from the parallel runway. Max 10 aircraft on the same CTAF frequency requires a lot of discipline! And there might be an occasional non-communicating This can deliver a unique training opprtunity in your sim though. Please, let's take up a maxiumen of 5 aircraft in each pattern otherwise it will become a mess and that's not what I'm aiming for. If both patterns are full, please be patient and wait for one of the aircraft to exit. If you see people waiting on the ground, both patterns are full and you have done some laps, please be kind and let others experience this unique opportunity as well. Ever wanted a full pattern to practice your CTAF and pattern skills on PE? Here is your chance!
