Description: A tour which takes us around the continent of Europe. For those who use the excellent add on scenery produced by Orbx, Europe is one of the major areas of coverage, with the whole of the UK, Norway and part of Germany covered. This tour is designed to make good use of that scenery but of course the tour can be completed without the add on scenery. The tour will be flown as a group flight every Sunday afternoon. Why not join us on Teamspeak and have a chat even if you do not fly on Vatsim? Special Thanks to BFL1731 John Forrest for putting this tour together for us. END DATE PERMANENT.
