British Columbia Flying Tour. A VFR flying tour of 3 major river systems on the north coast of B.C. Canada - the Kitimat, the Skeena, and the Nass. It is an excellent way to see the terrific topography of this area as well as test your VFR flying skills. Requires Ultimate Terrain Canada for FSX. By Doug Keech.
3 River Tour for Ultralights and Bushplanes
This is a flying tour of 3 major river systems here on the north coast of B.C. Canada - the Kitimat, the Skeena, and the Nass. It is an excellent way to see the terrific topography of this area as well as test your VFR flying skills. The tour begins at Kitimat airpark and ends at Dragon Lake just east of the village of New Aiyansh in the Nass valley.
I have divided the tour up into 11 short legs, the longest being about a 40 minute flight in the challenger ultralight. Included in this package is a flight itinerary doc, scanned portions of VNC maps (vfr1, vfr2, vfr3), and fsx screenshots taken enroute.
This tour is really designed for aircraft like the challenger ultralight or the piper supercub which are both highly manouverable and can takeoff/land in short distances. I have created dirt strips in several locations along the way so you can fly either with wheels or floats. If you choose to fly using real weather that would be great, however be warned that this area is notorious for low ceilings and poor visibility.
Be sure to study the VNC scanned charts prior to setting out so that you can become familiar with the landmarks and you know where you are going. This is mountainous terrain and it can be very easy to get turned around when you're not paying attention to where you are at all times.
It's also a good idea to save a flight situation in each area as you arrive so that you can get there quickly for future flights.
