Canadian Xpress May 2017 Challenge: Canada 150th Ann. V

Welcome to the Canadian Xpress Canada 150th Challenge, where until the end of July 2017, we will tour the great nation of Canada as it and its people celebrate the 150th anniversary of Confederation.


Starting in the current Capital of Ottawa we head west to Toronto, Winnipeg and the western provincial capitals. From there we turn north to visit the 3 territory capitals and then on to the East coast provincial capitals along with Quebec City. At which point we head for the final stop of Kingston Ontario, Canada’s first capital and home of Confederation.


This is a multi-leg 7,000nm journey, which will be flown in Canadian Built aircraft. For the longer legs sit back and enjoy the cruising comfort of the Bombardier CRJ-700. On the shorter to mid length flights look for the quick handling short field performance of the Bombardier Dash 8-Q400. And for those mountain p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]age legs and short east coast hops, the DeHavilland Dash 6-Q300 Twin Otter makes for a great scenic VFR ride.


This month, we depart from Iqaluit (CYFB) and head to Saint Johns (CYYT) and then on to Halifax (CYYT) with any Canadian Xpress Bombardier or DeHavilland aircraft that are available to all pilots regardless of rank, but only for the challenge.
