Canadian Xpress® July 2021 Monthly Challenge: Scenic Approaches IX – Santa Catalina
Written by cxa001 on July 2, 2021
Santa Catalina Island is a rocky island off the coast of Southern California in the Gulf of Santa Catalina. The island name is often shortened to Catalina Island or just Catalina. The island is located about 29 mi south-southwest of Long Beach, California. The highest point on the island is Mount Orizaba at 2,097ft. Santa Catalina is part of the Channel Islands of California archipelago and lies within Los Angeles County. Catalina Island is the easternmost of the Channel Islands.
Its total population in the 2010 census was 4,096 people, 90 percent of whom live in the island’s only incorporated city, Avalon. The second center of population is the unincorporated village of Two Harbors at the island’s isthmus. Development also occurs at the smaller settlements of Rancho Escondido and Middle Ranch. The remaining population is scattered over the island between the two population centers.
Your mission is to fly from Van Nuys (KVNY) to Catalina (KAVX) with any Canadian Xpress® freeware or payware propeller aircraft you have the rank to fly.
