Canadian Xpress announces September Challenge Winner: Dangerous Airports III
Written by JT on September 29, 2015
In September, departing from St. John’s (CYYT), your mission was to fly to one of the most dangerous airports in the north, Narsarsuaq Airport (BGBW) in Greenland with either the Canadian Xpress® Boeing C-17 or Lockheed C-130.
The approach was through a fjord, so it was necessary to make 90 degree turn to line up with the runway while in the valley. It’s similar to flying down a city street with high rises on both sides with severe turbulence at all times except on the brightest of days; downdrafts are everywhere. There was also the risk of icebergs drifting into the departure/arrival path.
Congratulations goes to Brandon Card (CX426) who is the winner of the Canadian Xpress® September 2015 Challenge and wins any Aerosoft download product from Aerosoft http://www.aerosoft.com/.
