RTWR Jetliner Team Practice 3 – Sunday 7 Feb, 1900 UTC


 


This practice session starts at Anchorage International and proceeds down the coast of Southeast Alaska before heading inland to British Columbia and finishes at Spokane Felts Field.  The legs are short (100nm) so that we can focus practice time on climb, descent, and landing phase of flight.  While it should be daylight when we start, Alaska is known for its bad weather so some approaches and landings may be challenging as terrain will be a factor at several airports.  While flying fast is good, completing the leg safely is as important.

Here's a SkyVector map of the route for general WX & charts (US only) - Tip,, just left of the "X" (close) in the flight plan popup is a switch to toggle old style vs new style plan listing. Going to the old style will give one links to the airport charts. 

 

For the Canadian airports charts can be had here.  Older, but still valid for those that do old style nav.

Ohh good find Roman, I know finding canadian charts online is hard as canadian charts are done by NavCanada a private organization in Canada and aren't released for free anywhere.

 

when i fly online in Canada I use my paper charts usually that I bought many years ago. :)

How does this work, do we all fly the whole thing, or pick a leg?

 

Join us on Teamspeak.  You can volunteer for a particular leg as either baton pilot or wingman.  Other members will setup at the destination airport to pickup the baton and carry it on.
