Canadian Xpress December 2016 Challenge – Real World Ops I

CXA_Dece_2016_ChallengeThis month we are trying something new for our challenges where we will follow a real world and see if we can do better. Since this our first try at this new format, it’s totally up to the pilot to choose a route and aircraft (as long as you’re rated for it).

The real world ops title says it all. Pick a real world flight and fly it online at the same time the real flight is making the same flight in the real world. This however means there is no time offsetting allowed. So if you choose to fly during daylight hours, you will have to pick a fight that is flying somewhere in the world at the same time.

The easiest way to pick a fight is to visit http://flightaware.com and select a flight. You can browse flights by airport, aircraft type or real world airline.

Canadian Xpress November Fly-In – Eagle County

CXA_Nove_2016_FlyIn
With one of the most dangerous approaches in the United States, Eagle County Regional Airport serves the world-famous ski resorts of the Eagle-Vail area in Colorado.

During the ski season, Eagle County Regional Airport is the second busiest airport in Colorado after the Denver International Airport. Eagle serves as a great alternative to Denver for skiers in the Eagle Valley because of its close proximity to the major international ski resorts of Vail, Beaver Creek, Copper Mountain, Keystone and Breckenridge.

Due to the abundance of flights into Eagle County Regional Airport and the ability to accept larger aircraft than Aspen, a number of passengers fly into Eagle County Regional Airport rather than attempting to fly into Aspen. Operations into the Continue reading
