01JUN20/1900z - Operation Backup Inspiration Infinite Flight Version @ CYXX

Operation Backup Inspiration - Infinite Flight

Hello IFC, as most of you know, earlier this week Snowbird 2 crashed in Kamloops. To me, it hits very close to home. Only a couple days after, on May 18, the BCGA (British Columbia General Aviation Association) rounded up 35 pilots who volunteered two hours of their time to fly this route below to honour Capt. Jenn Casey.

Route:


What I would like to do, would be to honour Captain Jennifer Casey and all those effected by recreating this flight in Infinite Flight.
The flight “IRL” had 31 pilots. However, many more wished to join and they could not due to social distancing and BCGA’s wish to stay safe.

As we do not need to social distance in Infinite Flight, there is no limit to how many pilots may choose to participate.


The following guidelines must be followed to the letter when in the air:

  • There will be NO formation flying, aircraft will follow aircraft in front, single file.
  • On departure and throughout the flight a minimum of 0.5nm spacing is required.
  • Only GA prop aircraft are permitted.
  • Flight will start at CYXX, fly over Langley, Whiterock, Surrey, Maple Ridge, Coquitlam and Vancouver/North Van.
  • At the end if the route, aircraft will break and fly to their “home airport” which they will select on signup.
  • All aircraft will be between 65 and 90 knots IAS at all times during the flight until we break.

Please confirm you’ve read the above by replying that you have information “Tango”.

I encourage more Cessnas and lighter aircraft to sign up as well since those were many of the aircraft used in the IRL Operation Backup Inspiration.

I’ll take an XCub, do you mind if I fly the set route then fly off VFR? No set airport, if anything I’ll return back to Abottsford at some point.
