Greetings EasternHopers:

          Our community focuses on Airport Hops with ATC controlled area on our Public Teamspeak. We do have a customized Virtual Airline system that tracks your flights using a small app utility E-Tracker also known as SmartCARS; this system is optional, however, we encourage you to use our system to help you become a better pilot.

The following video tutorial Shows how to set-up, create Flights tweak your flight sim using our Virtual Airline E-Tracker (SmartCARS) program

---------------  PRE - E-Tracker aka smartCARS set-up --------------

Be Sure to register on and then Download step by step as instructed on your profile page 

- E-Tracker aka smartCARS   CLICK HERE!
Download and install FSUIPC when it asks you to register just say no or cancel and you good to go. To see if you have it installed join game press left ALt and see if you see the add-ons button on your menu bar if you see it displayed there you are good to go. 

- FSUIPC 4 - Lastest version (FSX Module that allows E-Tracker to comunicate with FSX)  CLICK HERE!

-----------------Configuring your smartCARS--------------------

- Right click on E-Tracker icon on your desktop and "run as administrator"
- on the left column of the E-tracker click on "SETTINGS"
- Locate "GENERAL" Check where it says "Return to Flights page after Bidding"
- Beside General click on "CHAT"  uncheck "Flash the taskbar icon when a new message arrives".
- Locate SOUNDS first column uncheck "Play Global Messages and on the right side you can uncheck Play Flight attendant announcements when flying a prop plane and recheck when flying a commercial airplane.

-----------------How to pick a flight from your E-Tracker --------------------

CREATING FLIGHTS.....When you want to go on a flight using E-Tracker
- Click on "NEW" add your icao Airport code in the Departure area.

Do not add arrival airport code, aircraft type or time as this may prevent you from seeing the flight you want to go on (for new pilots all flight routes will be seen after 3  hours of VA time then you can add the arrival airport remember even if that flight is assigned to another plane you can still pick that flight).

  If you see your flight in the search list assigned to another aircraft you can still bid on that flight and change it to the correct plane after selecting "fly". If you do not see the flight in the search list that you want to fly

We are working on fixing the create a flight function on the website so for now use the "create" button thats on our E-Tracker aka SmartCARS

go to website and use the "CREATE FLIGHT" feature on the header menu. add departure airport, Arrival Airport, Select your preferred aircraft for this flight leave departure times empty now you can CREATE YOUR FLIGHT. Now you will see Pilot submitted Charters scroll down until you see the flight you created and select "Fly Now"  Add your cruising Altitude and when flying be sure to be at or above the cruise altitude so you will get all your correct callouts on your decent to the arriving airport click Fly

    Now when you see the big green check mark you are good to go back to the E-Tracker and see if your flight is in the bids section of your E-Tracker. locate your new flight on in the "Manage bid flights list and left click to highlight and click fly information will be shown in the first 5 lines then you will have to pick or be sure your aircraft is in the first block if not there is a drop down error and select the aircraft you will be flying for this flight. next block leave it set to "Flying Off-Line" and next is the passenger amount left click on Generate load below and pick the highest amount shown. the last block is your cruising altitude. Be sure you add your fuel for the flight.     

 Use "NEED HELP LETS CHAT" or "OFFLINE" feature on website or come on our Teamspeak 3 server "" for any questions or help.


These are the guidelines for flying with SmartCARS:

Take off and climb to your pre-selected cruise altitude, not to exceed 250 kts below 10,000'.
Once you reach 10,000' you may increase speed, not to exceed 320 knots/Mach 0.82 IAS above 28,000'.

You must complete a flight in REAL time, without map jumping, slewing, or using simulator time compression.

There is a feature on the SmartCARS flight window called 'pause at top of descent'. It is recommended that you use it. This feature is offered as a precaution to not getting back to your PC in time to complete overnight long-haul flights. Or if you fall asleep, etc...

Pausing your flight in order to relocate your aircraft, or to shorten your flight time, is NOT allowed. 

Pause on descent will pause your plane
, usually 110 miles out from landing or at a VSR of -30 fpm. Then a pilot may wake up or come home and land their plane. Running out of fuel will cause errors in the overall tracking system for the airline. Statistics will not be accurate.

If you run out of fuel during your flight, then please discontinue the flight. Taking extra fuel is better than running out.

 Your landing rate must be -399 feet per minute or less. After you land before you submit your "Pirep" Pilot Report be sure you view your acars data scroll up a few lines and see what your land rate is -399 and below you can file you report ...-400 close you start cars and redo the flight if you submit the flight it will get rejected and you will loss -200 points on the easternhops website.

All flights are reviewed before approval, so please follow these guidelines. It will prevent you from having to redo' a flight.

As always, our members and staff are here to help you. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.
Thank you for your cooperation. Now go have fun! Happy Landings.

A Delta Airlines Boeing 717-200, registration N939AT performing flight DL-762 from Atlanta,GA to Chicago Midway,IL (USA) with 114 people on board, was climbing through FL260 out of Atlanta at about 20:50z when the aircraft encountered turbulence causing the engine cowl of the right hand engine to separate. The crew received abnormal engine indications and decided to divert to Nashville,TN for a safe landing about 25 minutes later. The aircraft received damage to the right hand engine and right hand stabilizer.

Sabrina Fawaz was travelling with her husband from Dubai to London
The British Airways flight BA108 was escorted by Hungarian fight jets
It had failed to contact Hungarian air controllers according to protocol

By QIN XIE FOR MAILONLINE-  This is the terrifying moment that a passenger travelling from Dubai to London spotted a fighter jet next to her window.

Sabrina Fawaz was travelling with her husband on the British Airways flight BA108 on Saturday when the plane temporarily lost communications with air traffic control as it entered Hungarian air space causing two Hungarian Air Force Gripens to be scrambled.

She told MailOnline Travel that she thought the plane was ‘ready to shoot us down’.
