Canadian Xpress November Fly-In – Eagle County

CXA_Nove_2016_FlyIn
With one of the most dangerous approaches in the United States, Eagle County Regional Airport serves the world-famous ski resorts of the Eagle-Vail area in Colorado.

The Airport is largely seasonal, with the greatest number of scheduled flights operating during the winter months. During the ski season, Eagle County Regional Airport is the second busiest airport in Colorado after the Denver International Airport. Eagle serves as a great alternative to Denver for skiers in the Eagle Valley because of its close proximity to the major international ski resorts of Vail, Beaver Creek, Copper Mountain, Keystone and Breckenridge.

Due to the abundance of flights into Eagle County Regional Airport and the ability to accept larger aircraft than Aspen, a number of passengers fly into Eagle County Regional Airport rather than attempting to fly into Aspen. Operations into the Continue reading

Cars

Folks,

Those of you who post regularly I’m sure have noticed that I haven’t been responding to requests to post on your behalf recently.  I posted the reason for this on FB but forgot to post here.  I’m still here and we’re not closing or anything.  On April 17th my home flooded.  We had around 2 feet of water in our home.  I’ve just been really busy with all the cleanup and turmoil that occurs when an event like this happens.  We lost everything downstairs, my wife’s car was totaled, and my truck took on water.  Still trying to save the truck.  We were living in a hotel for 5 weeks but are back home now.  We still have no walls, floor, or kitchen.  I may post pictures at some point.  What a mess.

I do assure you that I will be back and will resume posting for you and your virtual airlines again.  My apologies for lack of communication but our focus was getting back in the house.  Thanks for your understanding..

Best Regards,

Platinum Airways Visits Waterworks

Platinum-WaterworksPlatinum Airways, the Open Skies virtual airline, has announced its April DOTW theme: Waterworks. The series will visit four engineering masterpieces that are related to water.

Water is a crucial element. Some countries have too much, some too little. It can pose a serious threat to nature. And it offers engineering challenges. Waterworks will pay tribute to four engineering masterpieces that have solved major issues. The series will start with a visit to the Suez Canal that eliminates many days of sailing between the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. Our destination will be Port Said (HEPS) on the northern side of the canal. Our second Waterwork is the Panama Canal that addresses the issue of having to circumvent South America. We’ll be flying into Marcos Gelabert Airport (MPMG). No country in the world knows how to deal with water better than The Netherlands, and we’ll visit the Delta Works, an engineering work of genius to protect the Zeeland province against floods of the magnitude of the 1953 disaster that claimed more than 1,800 lives. The closest airport to the Delta Works is Rotterdam Airport (EHRD). We’ll conclude Waterworks with a visit to Las Vegas’ McCarran International Airport (KLAS), the closest large airport to Hoover Dam, a source of power and water, and a major leisure attraction.

Each DOTW comes with charts to be downloaded and links to Continue reading
