Canadian Xpress June Fly-In – Summer Solstice


Summer is here. For those of us in the south, we have been enjoying the warm weather for a few weeks now. Cottages are open, boats are in the water, and motorcycles are filling the road ways. However, the day still ends sometime between 8:30 & 9:00pm when the sun finally sets below the horizon.

This isn’t the case for everyone. Canada’s Northern Territories and Alaska, the first day of summer is the peak of all day sunlight as the sun never sets in some places. Wouldn’t it be great to go golfing at 1:00am with the sun still high in the sky?

This month we celebrate the peak of 24 hour sunlight in the north with a trip to Ketchikan Alaska on the Summer Solstice

Canadian Xpress® would like to invite all pilots to join us on Saturday, June 21st, 21h00edt (Sunday 01h00z) for our June 2014 fly-in where we have two points of departure, one for those looking to fly something heavy Anchorage (PANC) and one for those wanting to fly a lighter prop Juneau (PAJN) and enjoy the local scenery.

This is an open invitation to all pilots no matter what your flying experience to attend this Canadian Xpress® sponsored event that will be flown on the VATSIM network.

More information regarding this event including operational details, charts, optional add-on scenery and the Canadian Xpress SB Model Set can be viewed by visiting or by directly downloading our Fly-In document here.

See you all on Saturday the 21st!
