USAF AFF Academy in WUS Challenge

Postby Marcus Becker » Tue Feb 11, 2020 12:37 pm

KAFF is another one of those tough to reach nonfriendly to civilian fields similar to what we had in the ZLA challenge. There are other options in UT that could replace KAFF. If I had to recommend one it would be U42 (South Valley Regional). It is in SLC and has an IAP and can be difficult to get in and out of considering its proximity to KSLC. There are certainly other options in UT and I would argue they are better suited than KAFF. My $0.02.

The problem with replacing AFF with U42 would be it creates a 500+ mile leg from TIF-U42 which is longer than we like to go. However, I agree that prior permission airports aren't ideal for the challenge. I would vote we change it to Puebelo (PUB).

KAFF has been replaced by KPUB.

Thank you both!
