STAR TOURS

Welcome to fleet training for an upcoming atmospheric endurance flight challenge. during which we will be flying at low altitude the entire circumference of planet ArcCrop in 5 segments over 5 sessions.

This operation will be training SEGMENT 1 of the full mission.

Captains and crew are invited to join the fleet convoy to practice:

  • Atmospheric flight.
    ArcCorp provides fair resistance and some skyline obstacles for flight training.

  • Formation flight.
    Align and fly with each other in formation on the journey between Areas.

  • Ship-to-ship refuelling.
    An essential part of the operation is a captained Starfarer to support the fleet with a refuelling interlude in each mission segment.

    This atmospheric endurance flight is a perfect opportunity to explore the different ship's capabilities in atmo and to train in ship-to-ship refuelling.

  • Atmospheric navigation.
    We'll be using bearings to set our heading between areas with the fleet moving 200m/s at maximum or at the top speed of the slowest ship in the formation.

  • Ship hardware knowledge.
    During the flight, there will be an opportunity to discuss & learn about the current state of wear and tear along with general performance and demands on the ships for the atmospheric endurance challenge along with emissions and detection ranges.

  • Shield protocol.
    Every session will be an opportunity to communicate & train our security standard operating procedures.

During the full mission, at the beginning and end of each segment, HQ will deploy to landing pads, the mission will resume from the same area the following session.

Our journey will start with short segments but they will increase in size as the mission progresses with the final stage being the longest atmospheric flight around 2000km in length.
