Gentleman (and Ladies)

It is my pleasure to officially announce our participation in Worldflight for 2013.  The official name for the team is "Cockpitbuilders Wolrdflight Team USA" Departing on November 3rd at 2200hrs (UTC) The Full Motion 737 Simulator of Sam Llorca will host 15 Crew for 7 Days making flights 24 hours a day. The purpose of this event is to raise money around the world for your local charity.  This year our Charity is the "All Children's Hospital" in St. Petersburg, Florida. I have created a video commemorating the event, and you can watch that here. (Once the Video Plays, Use the settings to Change it to HD).

Cockpitbuilders would like to thank:

                                                          Bob Reed - Event Organizer
                                    Sam Llorca (and Family) - Event Host(s)
                                              Worldflight Group - Organizing Body

The Event will be broadcast via the Web to anyone wishing to watch and listen in:

The Event will take place in the virtual Skies of VATSIM So please feel free to fly along with us.
Our Callsign for the event will be "CB-WFTU"

Anyone wishing to contribute to the event even if you can't be there, Please send an email to:


Worldflight is a "virtual" round the world flight to raise money for charity. (In Our Case "The All Children's Hospital")

The concept of a virtual, round the world flight for charity was started by a team in the United Kingdom and has spawned an annual event with participants all over the globe. This will be our first Worldflight event, and we anticipate it could continue each year.  Over the years World Flight Australia teams have raised over $140,000 for the charity.

The popularity of conducting a World Flight for charity is growing; over the years teams in Canada, Ireland, Scotland, England, USA and Austria have joined the simulators in Australia. Each team selects their own needy charity, raising funds through donations and corporate sponsorship.

15 Pilots and crew will man the Boeing 737 owned by Sam Llorca of Florida. Each of the volunteer crew will have contributed a donation to the All Children's Hospital to take part, kicking off the contributions. The flight will be conducted online on the VATSIM network, providing live Air Traffic Control through most of the countries that we visit. A 45-60 minute turn around is allowed at each stop and during that time the incoming crew will be fully briefed as to weather conditions along their route as well as other operational requirements. Interested people will be able to follow the progress via interactive flight tracking, instrument displays and streaming video and audio during the event.

If you have any further Questions or Comments, Please don't hesitate to ask.

Best regards,
