Your airplane is parked at the ramp at Schiphol East. Mail and food are on-board of your aircraft. We have to wait a few minutes for the other pilot since
he's taking his last Dutch cup of coffee and then we can go. Take off from runway 04 or 22 and heading to Prague.
According to the old history we have to obey certain rules and regulations for this Amsterdam-Batavia route. It was flown of course under VFR
conditions (VMC). During the Douglas period there where not even ADF (NDB) or VOR radio beacons available. Since we have to fly as "real
as it get's", you will find here a list of rules and regulations to follow.
Your flights must be flown online with IVAO or Vatsim.
All flights must be flown under VFR (VMC) conditions. That means that flights are made during daylight (15 minutes before sunrise till 15 minutes before sunset) and under VMC weather conditions.
Maximum flight altitude for Douglas airplanes is 7000 feet. When there are mountains on your route of more then 7000 feet,
you need to adjust your flightplan and fly around it.
Starting point is the apron at Schiphol East.
Runway in use is always 04-22 (remember that in those days there was no Schiphol as we know it now, so no other runways).
You can only fly the Amsterdam-Batavia route II with the Fokker F.VIIa-3m, F.VIIb-3m, DC-2 or DC-3.
To log your flight you must enter BATAVIA2 in the IVAP flightplan at the "Extra information field".
