  1. After nearly 10 years of calling Montreal home, the lease is up on our office space at Montreal (CYUL) and we are heading west to Edmonton (CYEG). That means we have a lot of office equipment, spare parts, and airplanes to get out of Montreal before December 31st. Any newer pilots looking to jump ranks are going to love this. Time is tight to make this all happen, so we are authorizing double time pay to move some aircraft. For every flight hour you log, we’ll give you double the hours. This month, your mission is to fly from Montréal (CYUL) to Edmonton (CYEG) with any Canadian Xpress that you have the rank to fly, meaning if you are a Captain you can only fly that class of aircraft.

  2. FedEx Corporation is an American multi-national courier delivery services company headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. The name "FedEx" is a syllabic abbreviation of the name of the company's original air division, Federal Express (now FedEx Express), which was used from 1973 until 2000. The company is known for its overnight shipping service and for pioneering a system that could track packages and provide real-time updates on package location, a feature that has now been implemented by most other carrier services.

  3. Gibraltar Airport is considered a hazard for aircraft because the Rock of Gibraltar sits ever so close to the runway. Approaching planes have to curve sharply over the Bay of Algeciras before touching down to land. Furthermore, the facility literally has a road cutting through it. Both cars and planes must wait patiently for each other to pass. Understandably, this creates a disturbance in the airport’s operations. This month, your mission is to fly from Barcelona (LEBL) to Gibraltar Airport (LXGB) with either the Canadian Xpress Boeing 737-700/900 or Airbus A318/A319/A320 freeware or payware aircraft which are available to all pilots regardless of rank, but only for the challenge.

  4. Founded in 1729, Baltimore is the second-largest seaport in the Mid-Atlantic. The city’s Inner Harbor was once the second leading port of entry for immigrants to the United States and a major manufacturing center. After a decline in major manufacturing, industrialization, and rail transportation, Baltimore shifted to a service-oriented economy, with Johns Hopkins Hospital (founded 1889) and Johns Hopkins University (founded 1876), now the city's top two employers. With hundreds of identified districts, Baltimore has been dubbed a "city of neighborhoods". Famous residents have included writers Edgar Allan Poe, singer Billie Holiday and baseball player Babe Ruth.

  5. Agatti Island is a remote island off the coast of India that is only accessible by boat or airplane. Being that it’s located on a tiny archipelago, the airport doesn’t have a lot of space for airplanes. Its runway is only 4,235 feet in length, making it too short to accommodate most commercial aircraft. The facility is about to undergo an expansion, which will see the existing runway expanded by 1,100 feet. They will also construct a new terminal building and parking area. In the future, it will be able to handle an Airbus A320 and Boeing 737. Back when it was built in 1988, the only plane it could take was a Dornier 228. This month, your mission is to fly from Cochin International (VOCI) to Agatti (VOAT) with either the Canadian Xpress® Aerospatiale ATR72-500 or Bombardier Dash 8-Q400 which is available to all pilots regardless of rank, but only for the challenge.

  6. Salzburg is the fourth-largest city in Austria and is internationally renowned for its baroque architecture. It is one of the best-preserved city centers and has 27 churches north of the Alps. Salzburg was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. Salzburg was the birthplace of 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In the mid 20th century, the city was the setting for the musical play and film The Sound of Music.

  8. Chicago is the third most populous city in the United States after New York City and Los Angeles. The Chicago metropolitan area which is often referred to as Chicagoland, has nearly 10 million people. It is the birthplace of the skyscraper and perhaps the most influential architectural city of the 20th century.

  9. Velana International Airport, also known as Malé International Airport is the main international airport in the Maldives. It is located on Hulhulé Island in the North Malé Atoll near the capital island Malé. Today, the airport is well connected with major airports around the world serving as the main gateway into the Maldives for tourists. The airport is on an island of its own with no run off room at the end so be ready to go around or you could get your feet wet, should you land long. This month's challenge is to see how well you can fly from Bandaranaike Int'l Airport (VCBI) in Sri Lanka and cross the Laccadive Sea to Hulhulé (VRMM) with either either the Canadian Xpress® Airbus A319-111, Airbus A320-200, Boeing 737-700 or Boeing 737-900 which are available to all pilots regardless of rank but only for the challenge.

    B737 now available for P3Dv4

    Unfortunately the P3Dv4 B737-200 no longer has the FMC as the previous FSX/P3D version which is a real shame. It was one of my favorite aircraft, but now is like so many other aircraft that I have that can only fly VORs or NDBs.

    Aivlasoft EFB v2 coming soon

    Been using EFB since it was first released. Can't wait to get my hands on v2. In my opinion it is worth the price.
  12. San Diego International Airport, formerly known as Lindbergh Field, is an international airport 3 mi northwest of Downtown San Diego, California, United States. In 2015, traffic at San Diego International exceeded 20 million passengers, serving more than 500 scheduled operations carrying about 50,000 passengers each day. While primarily serving domestic traffic, San Diego has nonstop international flights to Canada, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. San Diego is the largest metropolitan area in the United States that is not an airline hub or secondary hub. However, San Diego is a focus city for Alaska and Southwest Airlines. San Diego International is the busiest single runway airport in the United States and third-busiest single runway in the world, behind Mumbai and London Gatwick. Due to the airports short usable-runway, close proximity to the skyscrapers of Downtown San Diego and steep landing approach as a result of the nearby Peninsular Ranges, KSAN has been called "the busiest, most difficult single runway in the world" and operates in controlled airspace served by the Southern California TRACON, which is some of the busiest airspace in the world.

  13. The busiest international flight is also a very short flight in terms of international routes. The route between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore is the worlds busiest international route with over 30,000 flights made between the two cities in 2017.

  14. This month we visit one of the busiest airport in the world, John F. Kennedy International Airport and is often referred to as Kennedy Int'l or JFK. Kennedy Int'l is the primary international airport serving New York City. It is the busiest international air passenger gateway into North America. Opened as New York International Airport in 1948, it was commonly known as Idlewild Airport before being renamed in 1963 in memory of John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States, following his assassination. Pilots can expect a lot of traffic as Kennedy Int'l will be part of the Let's Go Clubin Crossfire event held by ZNY & SAN JUAN CERAP.
