Both distances are wrong.

Great circle distance from IOM to Gatwick is 239nm. Standard airways routing
would add about 7% to this so say 255nm for going via A20 and L10 - which
makes IVAO the better of the two guesses.

I'll have to look at the JHB IVAO page to see what happens after you file a
report. I presume it automatically adds to the airlines totals.

Just completed my first IVAO PIREP form.

Needles to say, I was not prepared for the amount of information required.

Must set up a proper log book, and enter all the required information at the

end of the flight.

FSC gave me a flight distance of 216nm, (EGKK-EGNS) but the IVAO database
said 274, must have shaved off nearly 50nm somewhere. Mind you, the FSC
database is not foolproof. Will have to get the routing elsewhere.

Impressed at the way the blue dots following me and each side of me, changed

to a yellow aircraft shape, when within 12nm, on the FSC screen, assume this

was the TCAS warning.
