Canadian Xpress October 2015 Challenge – Dangerous Airports IV


This month, our mission is to depart from Stornoway (EGPO) and fly to Barra Airport (EGPR) which is a short-runway airport (or STOLport) situated in the wide shallow bay of Traigh Mhor at the north tip of the island of Barra in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. The airport is unique, being the only one in the world where scheduled flights use a beach as the runway. The beach is set out with three runways in a triangle, marked by permanent wooden poles at each end. At high tide these runways are under water so flight times vary with the tide. Emergency flights occasionally operate at night from the airport with vehicle lights used to illuminate the runway and reflective strips laid on to the beach.

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