Announcement OFSS IV-pilot roll call

It's been a long time since we heard from OFSS III, so I think that it is time to move on with another project. The most notable change between then and now is that IMS has become a lot more stable. So, I propose to start a new series, but this time incorporating IMS, which adds a lot of realism to the experience.

A basic list of missions to be undertaken:

Legend
1) GC : Latest time by which all goals must be completed
2) Launch : Time of launch
3) Landing : Time of landing. Landing must take place not earlier than the GC date and not later than this date.
4) Goal : SB stands for station building, CT stands for crew transfer
5) WIN : Wideawake International
6) CSSC : Carl Sagan Space Center
7) Basic skill : Minimum piloting skills required to undertake the mission
8) DRL : Deorbit, reentry and landing.

The above table of mission also states the minimum level of pilot skill required to fly a mission. If you think you qualify, please reply, stating the vessel of your choice and also which mission you would like to fly (please note, it might not be possible to give everyone the mission that they want). The orbital tug missions (Flt# 6 and 8) are the most challenging of the lot. Every mission will have both a pilot and a backup pilot.

Pilots (11) : ADSWNJ, mojoey, Artlav, astrosammy, Kyle, Pipcard, Athena, kamaz, PhantomCruiser, serolrom, Shifty

Actually, you know what, can I switch to #12, I'm a bit rusty with the XR5, to be honest.

Done!

But seriously we need to get more pilots, or we have to scrub this whole thing.

Just wondering when will #1 launch, or is the real launch date still in plan? I'm itching to fly again after a month's break from orbiter.

The first launch can take place as soon as the first five missions have been allotted.

So Athena, can I count you in ? If so, which mission would you like to take ?

If no other pilots join by May 20, then I think I'll go ahead and fly the first mission and pass the baton over to ADSWNJ.
