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 scenery files. A selection of YouTube videos usually contains flight deck and ground views with landings and departures.

 

About Platinum Airways:
Keen to deliver on its mission to keep the fun in the hobby, Platinum Airways is probably the only virtual airline to combine an Open Skies policy, allowing its pilots to fly any mission of their choice with the aircraft of their choice at the time of their choice, with a strategic hub network. The carefully selected hubs, Newark (KEWR), Dallas-Fort Worth (KDFW), Vancouver (CYVR), Perth (YPPH) and Brussels (EBBR), should be attractive to a global membership. In addition, Platinum Airways offers its pilots an often cheeky Destination of the Week, Military and Cargo. Sticking to the KISS principle (Keep It Straight and Simple), Platinum Airways hosts an active forum and a screenshot of the week competition, with the winner providing the main picture on its home page for the next week.
