The next PE monthly event is upon us! Vegas, baby!

This is a ZLA-focused event (recall that we will be alternating between WUS and ZLA events to cater to both types of subscriptions).

Pick up your clearance and depart within the first hour of the event, choose from one of two departure airports (LAX or SNA). Choose from one of two arrival airports (LAS or HND).

Preferred routes are as follows:
LAX-LAS jet RNAV: ORCKA2.MISEN KEPEC6
LAX-LAS jet non-RNAV: SEBBY2.DAG.CLARR3
LAX-LAS turboprop: SEBBY2.DAG.CRESO4
LAX-LAS piston: SLI8.SLI POM DAG.CRESO4

LAX-HND jet RNAV: SEBBY2.DAG.JOMIX1
LAX-HND jet non-RNAV: SEBBY2.DAG.CLARR3
LAX-HND turboprop: SEBBY2.DAG.CLARR3
LAX-HND piston: SLI8.SLI V21 PDZ V442 APLES V394 DAG V587 BLD

SNA-LAS jet RNAV: FINZZ2.MISEN.KEPEC6
SNA-LAS jet non-RNAV: MUSEL8.DAG.CLARR3
SNA-LAS turboprop/piston: MUSEL8.SLI POM DAG.CRESO4
SNA-LAS piston: ANAHM9.SLI POM DAG.CRESO4

SNA-HND jet RNAV: MUSEL8.DAG.JOMIX1
SNA-HND jet non-RNAV: MUSEL8.DAG.CLARR3
SNA-HND turboprop: MUSEL8.DAG V587 BLD
SNA-HND piston: ANAHM9.HEC V21 BLD

We will not have full staffing until a few minutes before the departure time, so try not to call before the event window begins if you're taking part in the event.

Hope to see you there!

I'm also going to be busy that day. Can't wait for the next event next month! Wish I didn't have to wait a whole month for an event! :P

This is my first time at one of these, is it just like a normal flight using the route posted. I am also VFR even though I have been doing instrument approaches as practice, so I assume VFR is good to go. My twin star should get there in about 2 hours or so. I just put the flight into ForeFlight from KSNA to KHND departing at 17:15.

Advice to all : Brush up on your holding procedures.

http://www.touch-n-goes.com/articles/in ... tries.html

If you are flying an airliner, you can program the FMC to fly the hold. In the 737-800 and the Airbus A320 this is quite easy to do.
There are many tutorials on YouTube which explain the procedure.

I'm actually hoping I get placed in a hold on Friday so I can practice.

Enjoy!!!!
