Canadian Xpress October 2012 Challenge: Instrument Flight Rules

This month’s challenge is to forget the FMC, forget looking out the window (other than to enjoy the scenery) and close the GPS and navigate via your aircraft’s instruments by dialing up a VOR and set course towards it & track NDBs. Your welcome to hand fly or use the autopilot to track the radios, but the challenge here is to manually set the radios. Don’t let the GPS or flight planning software run the show.

Starting at Daytona Beach (KDAB), you will navigate down the east coast of Florida making your way to in to the Key’s and landing at Key West (KEYW). Along the way you’ll pass over Kennedy Space Centre and the famous, Hwy 1 Oversea Continue reading

Platinum Airways Visits Extreme Runways

Platinum Airways, the very virtual Open Skies airline, has revealed its September Destination of the Week theme. Extreme Runways will visit the world’s shortest and longest runways that have scheduled and non-scheduled service. Extreme Runways is bound to be an extremely challenging series.

Extreme Runways will offer exactly what it says: the world’s longest and shortest runways with and without scheduled service. The series will kick off with the shortest commercial airport: Saba (TNCS), with a length of 1,299 ft and its extremely challenging approach. Next up is the longest non-commercial airport: Edwards Air Force Base’s extended RWY 17/35, with a length of 39,907 ft, although only 15,000 ft is paved – the rest is on a dry lake bed. From there we’ll visit the shortest runway altogether: according to our research, it is 0WN5 or Potts Field in North Cape, Wisconsin, with its 150 ft turf surface runway. And we end the series with the longest runway with scheduled service: Qamdo Bamda (ZUBD) in Tibet, with a length of 18,045 ft and elevation of 14,219 ft or 4,334 m. ZUBD is extremely challenging, with the thin air at that elevation.

As per Platinum Airways DOTW routine, pilots will be offered navigational charts. In addition, links to scenery files (FS9, FSX and X-Plane) and other aids are provided. And when applicable, Platinum Airways usually succeeds in negotiating favourable conditions for its members for the specific destination’s duration. Pilots visiting a current DOTW are rewarded with a 5% bonus. Past DOTW’s remain available to pilots through an archive system. Continue reading
