How good are you pilot skills? Stop by the iBlueYonder booth at FlightSimCon 2017 and sign up for the Heron’s Nest Landing Challenge. The challenge is fairly simple: using a pre-defined flight, you’ll approach the Heron’s Nest from the north in the default FSX/P3D Piper Cub. If you can safely land and taxi into the hangar barn, your name will be entered to win. Sounds simple, right? Well… it is, sort of. Bear in mind there will be a crosswind component, and those tail-draggers can be treacherous. The equipment at the show will be minimal; a joystick with twist action for the rudder. If you plan on competing, make sure you’ve got a copy of the free Heron’s Nest 2.0 scenery so you can practice beforehand.
First prize is Free iBlueYonder Products for Life! Second and third prizes are a free download of the iBlueYonder scenery of your choice, either current or future. And they will definitely have some interesting projects coming up in the near future. If there is only one winner, they automatically win first prize. If there are more than one, all names will be put in a hat with first, second, and third prizes drawn. The challenge starts Saturday, June 10 at 3:45pm at the iBlueYonder booth.
And for everyone, a little special to brighten up the show weekend:
Nantucket Island will be marked down 50% on our site from June 9-11 to celebrate the show weekend. If you haven’t gotten it yet, now would be an excellent time. They will also be rolling out a new P3D4 version very soon, along with more airport content that’s free of charge for all Nantucket owners.
