Canadian Xpress February 2013 Challenge: Something out of the Ordinary

This month’s challenge is an easy passenger run this month. No VFR cross-country flying, picking up equipment in fog and snow storms, just an 80% passenger load from Toronto (CYYZ) to Halifax (CYHZ).


For the February Challenge you can only fly an aircraft that is in your rank. What’s this mean? If you are Captain rated, you can only use an aircraft from the Captain level, nothing higher and nothing lower. Same goes for all the ranks, only the aircraft listed in your rank, based on the Canadian Xpress® website, ranking system.

This levels the playing field for those who have been around for years and can land a small aircraft at -100 any day of the week, unlike those who are just getting started.

Lower ranked pilots will be able to fly smaller lighter aircraft, while the veterans of Canadian Xpress® will have to take a heavy slow to manoeuvre aircraft and try for that magic touchdown number.

We encourage all Canadian Xpress® pilots to participate as there are some great prizes to be won including:
• Aerosoft Products
• Bonus Flight Hours
• Canadian Xpress® Monthly Challenge Award

The February 2013 Challenge is open to all Canadian Xpress® pilots from February 2nd until February 26th, 2013.
