Special Event: “A to Z” – Alberta (Sat. Nov. 18)

The third stop on our alphabetical special event takes us to Canada's fourth-most populous province, Alberta. We will start off in the capital city of Edmonton (CYEG) and take a short southern hop to Calgary (CYYC) and from there, we'll head north to the great city of Fort McMurray (CYMM), still recovering from the devastating forest fire they experienced last year, estimated to have destroyed about 1/5th of the homes in the area.

As usual, you will receive 20 bonus points for participating, provided that you depart within the 3-hour event time window. You may fly the flight in any aircraft using any route at any altitude you prefer, although the recommended ones are listed below. Click the flight number link below to be taken to that flight page on the Mountain Air website. Don't forget to reserve your slot for this flight as well.

Please join us on TeamSpeak during the event as we visit the province named after the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria – Princess Louise Caroline Alberta!
