Is there an arena where air racing is the primary function? Even a time over distance with a set fuel load and plane might be of interest to me. So, what's it all about?
You get together with a few of your Mates, arrange beforehand to connect to a server (FS Host) via their IP Address, (details in the Multiplayer Forum), select some freeware airfield racing scenery eg: Reno Airfield or Moffett Airfield, (both available free here, complete with scenery objects, at the Sim V library), and fly the course with selected freeware aircraft....
...and all for FREE!
We have often got together, and done it in the past, in FS 2004...and it also works with FSX!
Multiplayer Fly-ins, Tours, and Air Shows, etc, have also been very popular in the past...easy-peasy!
Time to learn how to use Multiplayer!....
