[July 25] Canadian Xpress July Fly-In - Mighty Planes - B737-200


Recommended Posts


Anyone who is a fan of all things that fly, has probably watched The Discovery's Channels series called Mighty Planes. The 5th episode of their second season which aired in the middle of June was on the Boeing 737-200 operated by Nolinor Aviation based out of Montreal Mirabel airport.


The show covered the operation of the 737-200 as it traveled from Mirabel to Val-D'Or, here it loaded up cargo for the giant mining company Agnico Eagle for transport to their Meadowbank mine in Nunavut.


For this month's fly-in we wanted to recreate that route, however its 3+ hour flight that puts it outside our target flight time for these events. Furthermore, Meadowbank is a private airport for the mine, it's not modeled within the FS world.


Nolinor being a charter airline does operate all over the North so Canadian Xpress would like to invite all pilots & virtual airlines to join us on Saturday, July 25th at 10h00edt (14h00z) and 21h00edt (Sunday 01h00z) for our July 2015 fly-in where we will fly their Val-D'Or (CYVO) to Kuujjuaq (CYVP) route.


This is an open invitation to all pilots no matter what your flying experience to attend this Canadian Xpress sponsored event that will be flown on the VATSIM network.


More information regarding this event including operational details, charts, optional add-on scenery and Canadian Xpress Model Sets can be viewed by visiting www.CanadianXpress.ca or by directly downloading our Fly-In document here.


See you all on Saturday the 25th!
