=======================================================================================

All departure times are at 23:00 Zulu Time unless otherwise indicated.*

Pilots may fly whatever equipment they choose as long as it’s a VFR flight. (with exceptions)

Update! All flights will be flown on JoinFS, unless otherwise noted. JoinFS is peer-to-peer based so it’s a nice stable platform. Get it HERE! ===> http://pmem.uk/joinfs/  And fly with us for a while on SBR’s VFR Sundays!  (Find us chatting LIVE in Discord’s SkyBlueRadio ‘Pilot’s Lounge’. Connect to Oddball in the HUBS list… OR look for anyone on JoinFS’s LIVE MAP)  Then…  Drop in anytime to fly solo, try some non FAA approved maneuvers, or maybe even catch some of the Blue Crew during some of our impromptu fly-ins!

We have changed our primary voice chat server to Discord which is available here. ===> https://discordapp.com/  Where a quick registration of your e-mail will get you going. We recommend installing the Discord App and then join the SkyBlueRadio Channel via this invite.  ===>  https://discord.gg/rpMmPWj  This allows the group to chat live and coordinate our flight traffic when no ATC is online.  

Flights flown on the VATSIM network will be noted. You can register for free at http://www.vatsim.net/  and get set up.

Flights flown on the IVAO network will be noted. When in Euro Zones, IVAO is here at https://ivao.aero/  to register for free with their network.
