Thanks, Bruce!
I am getting better now, and will be OK soon.
It just shows that, although I am in the last strectch of recovering from burn-out (my energy levels are getting back to reasonably normal values again), I still have to gain some resistance and resilliance. A common cold would normally not have grown into a full blown pneumonia with me. So there is still a stretch of path to go.
But I'm getting there! :)

Had myself an inflamed throat that spread to the sinuses, and later also to my lungs. So I did not leave bed for about a week now. Getting better, though!
So I just approved 7 PIREPs of which the oldest was waiting for a full week already. Sorry about that, David and Dawie! That is not how I normally roll...

The VFR World Tour 2024 Event is now live on the website. You have the month of January to join. Leg 1 is "open" until February 4th.

Legs will become available at a rate of 1 per week, and will all be available for 4 weeks, in principle. With 50 legs, this will keep us busy for the whole year. :)
I have added a bit of slack at the end for the December holidays, finishing our tour by the end of January 2025 - like the IVAO World Tour.
Do remember to play nice and follow the rules of the IVAO World Tour. You can find them here:
Also, per leg charts, suggested routes and instructions are available in the leg list; be sure to check them out before each leg.

That also goes for the replacement ICAO codes. All ICAOs as per our website are valid for FS9, FSX, and all versions of XPLANE.
There are only 2 exceptions for MSFS2020: 5T6 is called KDNA in MSFS2020, and SLRI is called SA68 in MSFS2020. So you have flightlogger issue a PP flight for 5T6, and fly to (or from) KDNA if you are using MSFS2020.

Now head on over to the website and sign on!
Safe Flights!

NOTAM: Be advised that I am currently in the process of putting together a PP event that has the leg list of the IVAO VFR World Tour 2024. It will be released shortly.

So if you plan to fly the IVAO VFR WOrld Tour this year, I would suggest holding off untill the PP Event is released and combine the two ;)

Keep an eye out on our Forum / Website for the official start announcement. Meanwhile, pilots can discuss the Tour and their planning for flying it here:,7927.0.html

Hi all,

just to let you know that I indeed re-activted my IVAO account and flew online for a bit, just to get all updates out of the way, and to prove to myself that I could still fly ;)
Nice detail, that Bruce actually caught me flying :D

This does mean that my recovery is prograssing in the right direction, but I am nowhere near there yet. Everything still costs me a lot of energy, and my energy reserve is just not that big yet. Moving in the right direction, though, and I ampicking up more and more of the things that I used to love to do.
But progress is painstakingly slow. Also because I want to get back to my previous self too soon, probably. My doctor says I am a bit too optimistic about what I can do already, and that hinders my recovery. I need to take lots of rest, and let everything else go, if I want to recover quickly.

That said: I do want to create an online PP event to start from the new year.
I was thinking of copying an IVAO VFR Tour of some division.
Any preferences? I was thinking of the Aruba VFR tour 2016, as that is still open (and probably will be for a while ;) ) but that will take us along the "well known" carribbean fields - and some lesser known.
The thing is that most active tours have an end date of 31.12.2023 or 31.01.2024. And I don't think we can do 20 legs before that ;) So I might just have to wait until the 2024 tours come available.

In the mean time, if anyone has an leglist laying around, you are welcome to share it with me on
