Canadian Xpress Summer 2012 Challenge: California Dreaming

Summer time has come to the west coast. Vacation homes are open and everyone is ready to enjoy the summer sun and surf. Summer time means higher demands for air transportation to the ocean playground of the Channel Islands.

Long Beach and Santa Barbara airports are our Sunshine Coast mainland hubs. From there you’ll be making scheduled flights to Catalina, San Clement, San Nicolas and Santa Cruz before returning to the mainland. Fuel is available at some of the island airports but at a much higher price compared to the mainland, so you must carry enough fuel for the whole trip landing with IFR reserves.

The California Dreaming tour consists of 10 scheduled flights where pilots will have to fly all 10 flights in a given amount of time using a particular aircraft.

Join Canadian Xpress® today in order to participate as there are some great prizes to be won from Continue reading
