VFR Group Flight #29
Grab your passports, we fly in from Canada!

We'll be doing another early morning VFR group flight this Saturday 2/20. We will be departing from an uncontrolled field again but you'll never know if you land at an uncontrolled or PE-staffed field.

Start your sim of choice, load up at a vacant ramp in Nanaimo, Canada (CYCD) and log into the Pilotedge network to join. We will use the #Briefing Room 1 on the Pilotedge discord server for the briefing. The briefing starts at 8:00 am PST. Information about the Pilotedge discord server can be found at the links below. After everyone is informed and ready we will advise when we switch to the local CTAF frequency.

We will leave Nanaimo southeast bound over the water and stay low. At only 1500 ft we stay clear of all controlled airspace and can checkout what's going on below us. After easily avoiding the Victoria class C airpspace we will quickly enter US airspace again. As we come in from Canada and don't have an overflight permit we will need to clear customs at the earliest possible customs facility. Friday Harbor here we come!. After landing at KFHR we taxi to the customs ramp where the CBP officer hopefully quickly searches your airplane, passengers and check your passport. I'm sure you're good to go so let's head out again. We head out to the east and circle the Whidbey class C while enjoying some stunning aerial views of the San Juan islands. 3500 ft looks great for this part of the flight. Skagit (KBVS) offers a great opportunity for a nice touch-and-go so let's do that. After Skagit we will continue our flight southeast bound and make u full-stop-taxi-back at Arlington (KAWO). Once you have vacated the runway I will let each of you know what your destination for today will be. That can be either lovely Harvey Field (S43) or you get the chance to meet the wonderful Pilotedge controllers at Paine Field. Trust me, Paine doesn't hurt....

After landing at the appointed airport we debrief on the discord server again. This is a pretty basic procedure flight but with great views and an exciting element. It is suitable for beginners however because it might include a landing at a class D airport, I highly recommend you to achieve at least the CAT-ratings up to the CAT-2 if you'd like to join. Preferably fly an aircraft that is easily able to maintain a cruise speed of around 110 kts.

Subscription required for this flight: Western Expansion (WUS) or Conmbined (ZLA+WUS)
