happyfeet Posted February 15, 2009 Report Share Posted February 15, 2009 I have done the X country about 20 times over the years, straight through to Vancouver. Whatever you do avoid that pesky weapons range close to Moosjaw. That would definately get you in doo doo..Avoid Hope BC, always crap weather! Expect the flight over the rockies at a min altitude of 9500'-10,000 and keep an eye out for lenticular clouds that can ruin your day. and check the winds, before proceeding on the next leg. If you end up flying into Castlegar, its a really nice 2500' foot per minute decent and down at the bottom of the valley. Watch out for stiff wing crazies. It's a rather uneventful trip, until you hit the Rockies :up: Enjoy the flight, and make sure you have a VISA or Mastercard. Fuel cards don't work everywhere and they let you know after they fll you up.some fuel guys are independents. If you don't have an airmiles card get one.Airmiles, in Kenora and most FOB's. St. Albert only takes credit or debit last time i was through. Personally I prefer the larger airports, its good practice for you if you havn't got alot of experience in controlled airspce, just remember that the frequencies are listed in order of use. You should be fine. Have a safe flight!!! HF Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
