The General Aviation Flying Club for Fly UK members. Take a break from airline flying and hop into a light plane or helicopter and either go solo or for more fun, join other members flying VFR online on multiplayer. You'll have a personal log-book if you wish to log your flights as you go. We hold informal VFR events, wherever FS will take us. Serious fixed-wing training is also available from one of our qualified PPL instructors.

Teamspeak 3

This is the software we use to communicate via voice. We encourage all members to come onto Teampseak when flying around on the Fly UK FSD server, there is a Flying Club channel on the Teamspeak server especially for this. You'll be able to meet and talk to other members who maybe flying around at the same time.

Online Flying

Fly UK FSD - We encourage all members to come and fly for the flying club online, this way you'll see others and have some traffic. Flying offline VFR with no traffic can be a bit boring. To connect to the FSD server you will need FSCoPilot and FSINN installed. Click the 'Training & Help' button above for a PDF guide on how to setup the software, alternatively you can book a course with the Training Academy.

IVAO & VATSIM - You can also fly online on IVAO/VATSIM. When doing so, you will need to use your aircraft registration as your callsign, not your UKV pilot ID for a VFR flight.

Flying with the Flying Club - FAQ

Just file a Flying Club PIREP. – if you fly one each month your name will stay in the Active Members list. However, if you enjoy general aviation flying why not consider flying with us on our regular Wednesday evening flights which are detailed in the Flying Club forum under Flight Information – or join us on one of our monthly events.
Any SEP or light twin of under 2,722kg (6,000lbs) empty weight Wednesday evening flights and monthly event flights will be restricted to 2267kg (5000lbs) unless otherwise advised. The ratings tours are restricted to these lower limits too - other tours can use the upper limits Please note, that warbirds and military trainers are not allowed in the Flying Club Other Types will be allowed on a ad hoc basis for specific events which will be advertised Via NOTAMS ans in the Forums
Skytrack will record your flight and file your pirep. Choose 'Start Flying Club Flight' from the dropdown. However, if you can't get online, go to Operations>Flying Club and use the 'log a flight' tab to upload your saved .xml file.
The same rules as for mainstream flights apply i.e. single continuous flights starting and finishing at the gates/parking with the engines turned off. En-route touch and go's should not be recorded as separate flights. Skytrack will record as a continuous flight until you park and switch off.
All FC PIREPs, over 1 hour duration, will keep your active status

FAQ - Flying

No, but you'll enjoy it a lot more if you do.
Yes. Anything that is available in your cockpit. But please don't just 'follow the purple line'.
Yes. But use it sparingly and only when it is appropriate.
Yes, but, with the same notes as for flying with the GPS and the AP. For group flying these are recommended for situational awareness.
There aren't any. It's part of the fun to work that out for yourself. Monthly events and Wednesday evening flights may sometimes give a route plan. Look for these in the Forums under 'Flying Club>Club News and Events or >Flight Information.

FAQ - Online

The Fly UK FSD server is used for our regular flights but you can use Vatsim and IVAO if you fly yourself.
Every Wednesday, from 7pm UK local time.
Yes. FSInn supports both FS2004 and FSX but prefered  software would be Vpilot
The Club Room is for general chit-chat. There may be times when an in-flight radio room is available for when we're flying. Please DO NOT use this room unless you are actually participating in a session. Popham Radio is for specific use when flying around Popham. Popham Radio Service may be available on Sundays and is not full ATC but a ground/air advisory service.
Anything suitable but do not use your Fly UK pilot ID. Most pilots use the callsign G-FC??, where the last two letters are your initials. We generally abbreviate this to just the initials. Please check here for callsigns already in use by club members and for more info.
These are held every 3 months on the Sunday event and are where we practice specific aspects of VFR flight. These events are more formal than the normal events and a certain level of competence is expected.

FAQ - Technical

You need the correct version  older version of vPilot with the FSD proxy as well as Teamspeak (version 3).  Its possible for FS2004 anf FSX to use the older FSINN software buy we can't provide  help in its config  
Book a Training Academy 'FSD software setup' session. however Vpilot and proxy server are the prefered  software to use 
In FSInn Control Panel, go to SET then find the networks menu. Select 'Peer-to-Peer' and untick the 'automatic peer-to-peer establishing' box.
In FSInn Control Panel, go to SET then find the multiplayer menu. Untick the 'Filter non-moving aircraft' box.
Nothing is wrong. FSInn will try to display other people's aircraft from your own local hangar. If you don't have that particular aircraft it will display the nearest guess. Please DO NOT spend time on the radio discussing what other people's planes look like!
Nothing is wrong. FSInn will sometimes do this and should sort itself out when the other aircraft starts moving
Unless otherwise specified, set your simulator time to Day in the simulator menu.
The recommended method is to set your simulator weather to 'clear skies'. Once you connect to the server this should automatically change to the real world weather from the server. If this weather is inappropriate (i.e. below VMC minima) then you'll be asked to change to CAVOK on the FSInn control panel. On Teamspeak we call this CAV-GREEN.
Plan G (freeware) from http://www.tasoftware.co.uk/ is good for situational awareness because you can see pther pilots on the server within your map. Little Navmap provides a similar service
