Hereby general regulations and guidelines that must be observed while flying IVAO World Tours. Please read ALL rules & regulations carefully and make sure you comply with them, not only to ensure your satisfaction, but every other member's satisfaction in flying our tours.
Flights must be completed in real-time mode (1x sim rate). No other mode (slew or acceleration) is permitted on the IVAO Network. Please also reference IR 2.3.7
Flights must be completed online using real-weather injection from the simulator (if available) or from software capable of providing real-weather.
Flights must be flown in the correct order and a PIREP must be submitted within 7 days. PIREP’s must be reported in UTC format as 'Take-Off' and 'Landing' times.
After connecting to the network, your aircraft must be stationary (park brake ON), on the apron or at the gate for a minimum of 3 minutes. After landing and taxiing to the apron or to the gate, your aircraft must be stationary (park brake ON) while still online for a minimum of 3 minutes.
After completing a flight and after waiting for 3 minutes, you must disconnect from the network before starting your next flight.
A maximum disconnection time of 30 minutes will be accepted for flights longer than 2 hours, due to simulator or PC crash (you must report UTC times with a brief explanation when submitting the flight). When reconnecting to the network, your flight must be initiated no further than 100 NM from the point of disconnection.
Unless otherwise instructed by online ATC, the Maximum Allowed Speed below FL100 (10000 ft) is 250KIAS.
The pilot is responsible to ensure the flight plan is correct before take-off. Flights with the wrong: a) ICAO codes for Departure / Destination / Alternate Airports, or b) Flight Rule Type, or c) with incorrect Aircraft information, after take-off, will NOT be accepted. If the FP is changed after take off or after landing for a) or b) or c) until disconnection (even if you submit a next flightplan), the leg will NOT be accepted!
Flight Plans with a VALID ROUTE are required. Flights with DCT where there is a VALID REAL LIFE ROUTE and/or DCT/GPS or simple DCT as route in Flight Plan will NOT be accepted! Composite flights plans Y and Z, will be accepted only if the departure/destination airport require so. Legs which allow Composite FP are indicated in the description of the tour/leg.
Your flight plan must include at least one real Alternate airport. It is the pilot’s responsibility to ensure a valid Alternate airport is included in your flight plan. The Departure or Destination Airport of that leg (or next leg) will NOT be accepted as a valid Alternate, with the EXCEPTION that the destination airport is remote. The legs which feature remote airports are indicated in the description of the leg.
As Pilot in Command (PIC), you must choose an aircraft that is suitable and can operate safely and within limits for every airport of the tour or as stated in the tour rules or leg description. See the description of the tour or the description of the leg. No refueling stop(s) or diversions to alternate are allowed.
Every flight must include RMK/WORLDTOUR in the remarks section of your flight plan.
