    Picture by SgtDigglesworth on TrueAchievments.com Aviation Roleplay - A Simplified Guide By Griz So, you want to learn about aviation role play. You've come to the right publication! In this guide, I will outline the details of how to role play aviation properly in accordance with GTA World's server rules, also adding in some legalities from a real world perspective. The intent of this publication is to give you the tools you require to operate your aircraft safely and realistically, all while doing the most important thing: having fun! Let's dig in. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ STEP 1: Purchasing an Aircraft You can purchase a fixed wing aircraft or helicopter at any of the dealerships located in this Vehicle Dealership Guide. You must know, if you don't already, that the prices for these machines are on the higher side. The lowest price for a Buzzard helicopter is $550,000. The prices for all other aircraft go up from there. STEP 2: Parking an Aircraft There are multiple locations on the map that allow for suitable aircraft storage. Below, you'll find some spots that one would reasonably keep their aircraft for safe storage. FIXED WING & HELICOPTERS Los Santos International Airport Sandy Shores Airfield Grapeseed McKenzie Airfield HELICOPTERS ONLY Public Helipads Farmland Privately Owned Fields Grass Areas on Private Property (Non-Residential Areas) STEP 3: Flying an Aircraft It goes without saying that the elevation in GTA V is not coincident with real world altitudes. 500 feet above the ground in GTA V is equal to roughly 1,000 feet above the ground in the real world. The ratio between GTA V and realism increases with altitude. 1,000 feet in GTA V is equal to roughly 3,000 feet in the real world, and so on. For the sake of simplicity, I'll be using GTA V altitudes in my examples. HELICOPTERS You should operate your helicopter at no less than 500 feet above the ground, unless you are taking off or landing. 500 feet obviously does not clear the multiple skyscrapers downtown, nor does it provide adequate clearance from the mountainous terrain around the map. So, try to stay 500 feet above whatever you're flying over. Example: Mirror Park is roughly 200 feet in elevation, so you should overfly Mirror Park at no less than 700 feet. This gives you adequate clearance from trees and other obstacles, also clearing you of a "flying too low" violation. You'll be safe at this altitude! Helicopters are very versatile aircraft. You can take them pretty much anywhere, which is a beautiful thing. You've paid enough for your new toy, so you should be able to do with it what you please. I agree with this, but, there are some realistic restrictions you must keep in mind. Landing in a backyard in Mirror Park is NOT acceptable, nor is it realistic by any means. You can, however, land on a secluded beach on the Eastern seaboard of the map. Considering a beach like that isn't a populated area, and you have adequate space to safely land your helicopter, you should be in the clear! Always keep in mind the following: 1. Can I land here safely? 2. Will doing so disturb anybody or anything? 3. Will landing or taking off here cause harm to anyone, including myself and my passengers? 4. Could I articulate and justify this landing to a staff member, should they inquire? If you've answered "yes" to all of these questions, you can probably proceed to land. Use sound judgment, and don't jeopardize your asset or good standing with the community. FIXED WING AIRCRAFT You should operate your fixed wing aircraft at no less than 1000 feet above the ground, unless you are taking off or landing. 1,000 feet obviously does not clear the multiple skyscrapers downtown, nor does it provide adequate clearance from the mountainous terrain around the map. So, try to stay 1,000 feet above whatever you're flying over. Example: the Vinewood sign is roughly 400 feet in elevation, so you should overfly the Vinewood sign at no less than 1,400 feet. Considering fixed wing aircraft cannot "stop" in the sky like a helicopter can, you should ensure your flight path keeps you clear of obstacles such as buildings, mountains, and populated areas. Always have a way to "get out" of undesired flight paths, such as flying too low near downtown. Your ability to escape these situations increases with altitude, so fly high! Fixed wing aircraft aren't as versatile as helicopters. You are restricted to only a handful of airports and landing strips. You should be thoughtful in how you approach these airports. Consider some of the following: 1. Do I have reasonable clearance from all obstacles on my approach? 2. Can I make it to the airport if my engine fails? 3. Will I come too close to any buildings or mountains? 4. Will I be flying too low over a populated area to make a landing? You must always consider all variables in a takeoff or landing. For example, taking off directly over the Vespucci neighborhood might not be the best idea. Consider taking off over the water, gaining altitude, and then fly over the Vespucci neighborhood at a reasonable altitude. That way, if something happens to your aircraft, you have enough time to make a turn back towards the airfield and land safely. Speaking of safe landings, let's talk about those for a moment. You are allowed to descend below minimum safe altitudes to make an approach and landing. One of the more complicated approaches to a landing is to runway 21 at Los Santos International. If you're flying a faster aircraft, like a Buckingham Nimbus, your turning radius is restricted and you need more room to fly a safe approach. I've attached a video on how to properly approach and land on runway 21 in a high speed aircraft. As we've discussed, you can descend below a safe cruising altitude to land at an airport or airfield. We do that in this video. In a smaller, slower aircraft such as a JoBuilt Velum, you could easily turn over the beach and land on runway 21 that way. However, that isn't the case for an aircraft such as the Nimbus. In the video, we keep adequate distance from buildings and mountainous terrain. As we descend lower, we are near the Downtown area. However, if we needed to abandon the approach, we could easily turn to the right and fly out over the water. This allows us the opportunity to avoid the buildings downtown should we encounter an emergency. Now you've seen the most complicated approach into Los Santos International. Let's talk about the more simple approaches, like those to runways 33R, 33L, 12L, 12R, and 3. All of these approaches come in from over the water, which provide you unlimited obstacle clearance. Take a look at the airport diagram below (Credits to MaksymDesigns on GTAForums) If you were to make a takeoff or landing from runways 33L, 33R, 12L, 12R, you'd be over the water, free from any obstructions or buildings. These runways make for a safe takeoff or landing at any time. If you were to depart from runway 3, you'd fly over Puerto Del Sol and the Vespucci area, so be careful if you choose to depart from this runway. Avoid taking off from it especially at night; It is a noise-sensitive neighborhood, and I highly doubt the residents would appreciate a loud airplane taking off over their neighborhood at 2 AM. You can land on runway 3 at any time, considering the approach comes in over the water. Let's talk about some rational decision making. You probably shouldn't land a fast jet on the dirt strip at Grapeseed. One, you won't make it. Two, you'd go down in history as the worst pilot ever. You can take your small Velum or Mammatus in there all day long, but make sure your approach is stabilized and you aren't going too fast! Always give yourself adequate distance to approach the runway at a straight in angle. You don't want to be in a turn as you're coming over the beginning of the runway. You probably won't make it. STEP 4: Communicating in your Aircraft Our wonderful development team has given aircraft and their operators a dedicated command (/atc) to communicate with other aircraft. When you're moving your aircraft in any way, you should broadcast what you're doing over the UNICOM frequency (/atc). For example, if I intend on taking off from Los Santos International from runway 33R, I would say something similar to this: "LSI traffic, Mammatus 123 departing runway 33R, turning to the Northeast". You should include in your broadcasts the following: 1. who you are, 2. where you are, 3. what you're doing. There's no need to speak a novel over the radio. Keep it simple and concise. All you're doing is alerting other aircraft of your position, and in turn, avoiding a collision with other aircraft. You should communicate takeoffs, landings, and prolonged activity over a particular area. Additionally, you should pay attention to what others are saying so you can avoid their location. If you are ever intercepted or interrogated by a law enforcement aircraft, acknowledge them over the UNICOM frequency (/atc) and follow their direction. They could be instructing you to avoid a particular area, or to land for violating aviation regulations. Simply put, do what they say and you won't have any problems. STEP 5: Enjoying your Aircraft Like I've said before, owning and operating your own personal aircraft should be fun and enjoyable. After all, this is a game! We should keep in mind, however, that this is a strict role play community. We want to maintain a level of realism in all that we do. So, following these simple steps will help you keep your aircraft and ability to fly. This guide may not reflect the discretion of GTA World's staff members, so use caution and practice safe flying habits so you don't ruin this niche roleplay for the rest of us. Fly your aircraft responsibly, take off and land responsibly, and park your aircraft at a reasonable location. A parking garage would not be a suitable spot for a helicopter, nor would the Olympic Freeway be reasonable for a fixed wing aircraft. Use good judgment and have fun. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ As aviation role play becomes more popular, updates and amendments will be made to this guide to reflect the rules and wishes of GTA World Management. Should you have any questions about aviation, please send me a message or find me on Discord (Griz#9174). Additionally, if you have any additions you'd like to make to this guide, please feel free to post them as a reply to this topic. I'll always be happy to take the opinions and contributions of others who enjoy aviation as I do. Safe flying!

  6. Part I: Personal Information: Character Name (and thread if one exists): Chad Grizforth Faction Name (and thread if one exists): N/A Discord Name: Griz#9174 Scripts Wanted? (Yes/No): Yes Part II: Property Information: Location of your request: Del Perro Brewing Co., Del Perro Beach (Already a business property) Interior ID you would like to have(from the list): Current interior is suitable for now. Exterior screenshot of the requested property: Reason for this request (You may go in detail): Del Perro Brewing Company, formerly Thin Blue Line, is pretty much the only beer distributor in San Andreas. We deliver products to a good portion of businesses throughout the state at a very reasonable cost to the consumer. While we've been focusing primarily on beer products, we've continuously been asked if we also supply liquor (vodka, whiskey, etc.). The answer has always been no, because there were no reliable sources to obtain these products. With the new addition of the liquor store script, that opportunity has now presented itself. Since there is always a demand for liquor items, we would like to expand our operation to offer these products at similar low prices. We have branded our own beer and made it a known name in the city, and we want to do the same thing with different types of liquor. In doing so, we plan on using different brand names for each liquor type that we will sell, both in our storefront and through our wholesale distribution. The primary reason for requesting this script is to ensure the demand for liquor stock by business owners is continuously met. We've proven to our customers that we're reliable and can do same-day deliveries on most orders, and the convenience of that is sought for by most players and business owners. If we were afforded this opportunity, we could ensure that the cycle of liquor sales and delivery never stops. This is something I believe players, business owners, and just individuals will appreciate. Plus, for us, it would strengthen our brand names and business model, making it sustainable in the long term. Part III: Business Script: Script(s) Wanted (if none, leave section blank): Liquor Store Character Backstory: Chad Grizforth started his work life in the forestry business. He worked as a consultant for logging companies, ecological rehabilitation projects, and wild land restoration endeavors. Considering his love for nature, he did that for a few years after graduating college with his Master Degree in that field. After his private contracts started slowing down, we decided to take on a challenge that his friend James Sheridan made, and that was to join the Police Department. This certainly wasn't a thought for a career path, however, he moved to Los Santos and decided to give it a shot. It's been a stable job for Chad, ever since he made his way through the academy. However, he still had that urge to do something bigger outside of law enforcement. Not to say that law enforcement in and of itself isn't a rewarding career, but his hobbies always got the best of him. Chad has been a long-time lover of beer and all things crafty. He appreciates a good drink, whether it be a simple beer or a masterfully crafted cocktail. With the finances he secured and saved through profit sharing, stock trading, and substantial 401k deposits, he decided to use a good portion of those finances to start a brewing company and taproom. With successful one-on-one marketing, retail offerings and wholesale platforms, he and his team have built up a good rapport with the local consumers. They've managed to become a "one stop shop" for all things beer-related. Chad has spent countless hours finding ways to improve his business model and quality of life. He lived on a retrofitted tugboat for a few months, saving up more money after selling his house. While he did go out and make a irrational purchase of a collector's vehicle, he made sure his finances would still be substantial enough to support his hobby and blossoming business. He and his pet dog, Mister Pug, currently reside with a friend in the Vespucci area. This makes his commute to work easy, also affording him the opportunity to live among the locals who frequent the taproom. With the new addition that Del Perro Brewing intends on making, he feels that this leap would not only help its customers immensely, but would also pay decent dividends to its partners. Chad has always been an honest man, and wants to continue building a reputable business that is reliable and cost-effective for its customers. Why your character suits this business: Chad Grizforth is a savvy-minded individual. Even through the complexities of the import and export tariffs imposed by the federal government, he and his team have created a sustainable business model that keeps the local beverage market moving. They relied solely upon their hard work ethic to ensure businesses like bars, lounges, clubs, and individuals themselves had access to one of the world's favorite beverages. My character wants to do the same for the local economy by providing easy access to affordable liquor products. All my character wants to do is ensure all players have the ability to purchase any liquor or beer related product they want to get their hands on. Long Term Plans: I intend to keep the Del Berro Brewing Company as the namesake for future brands to come, such as vodka, whiskey, rum, gin, and more. Considering we have a large warehouse on Elysian Island that we role play as our brewery, we'd turn that into a distillery as well so we can role play making our own liquor. The long term goal is to keep the taproom for regular openings, while also putting a retail store in one section of the property. This will be done through the furniture script, or perhaps a interior change in the future. Many breweries or distilleries I've visited have a similar set up, where they have a bar and lounge area connected to another room that displays all of its products for sale. Many wineries do the same thing. I'd like to create a business model that allows people the ability to simply stop on by and purchase whatever it is they need, or come hang out in the taproom. It would offer a variety of accessibility to each individual, all the while we'd still be offering our regular delivery to wholesale customers (always free of charge). Reason for wanting the script, why you deserve it, and how it would aid benefit the server: We want the script so we can continue offering easy access to alcoholic beverages for individuals and businesses. I believe we deserve it because we've taken the brewery script and turned it into a flourishing business, giving people easy access to simply hanging out in a taproom, or stepping up their own business role play by utilizing reliable distributors who offer them necessary products at a very reasonable price. I believe it would aid the server by injecting more alcoholic items and resources into the local economy, which in turn would boost bar role play. It would also saturate this particular market, giving the entire server easy and affordable access to these items both for normal and passive role play scenarios. A good portion of our server economy comes from businesses advertising and selling alcoholic items, so we want to continue our expansion by offering as much as we can simply by calling a number and placing an order. It makes it easy on business owners and it gives us the opportunity to role play a fun and enjoyable niche business.
