Canadian Xpress September 2015 Challenge – Dangerous Airports III

CXA_Sept_2015_Challenge

This month, we move from high mountains to Fjords full of icebergs. Departing from St. John’s (CYYT), your mission is to fly to one of the most dangerous airports in the north, Narsarsuaq Airport (BGBW) in Greenland with either the Canadian Xpress® Boeing C-17 or Lockheed C-130 which is available to all pilots regardless of rank, but only for the challenge.

The approach is through a fjord, so it’s necessary to make 90 degree turn to line up with the runway while in the valley. It’s similar to flying down a city street with high rises on both sides with severe turbulence at all times except on the brightest of days; downdrafts are everywhere. There’s the risk of icebergs drifting into the departure/arrival path.

Join Canadian Xpress today in order to participate as there are some great prizes to be won including:

• Aerosoft Products

• Bonus Flight Hours

• Canadian Xpress Monthly Challenge Award

The September 2015 Challenge is open to all Canadian Xpress pilots from September 2nd until September 27th, 2015.
