03JUN21 / 1730Z - US East Presents: From the Steel City to the Windy City @KPIT to KMDW


Source: List of bridges of Pittsburgh - Wikipedia

Welcome to one of the first ATC-based region events! And you read the title right - it's happening today! We will be taking you from Pittsburgh, the Steel City with its 446 (!!) bridges, to Chicago, the Windy City.

There are a couple reasons why this event is unique and that make it worth attending:
  • You are guaranteed full ATC service between KPIT and KMDW

  • No need to sign up for a gate or make your own flight plan - this is meant to resemble a flash flight (it is not an official flash flight) in the sense of it being quick and posted on short notice. We would, however, appreciate a comment if you are attending

  • The arrival into KMDW is a really cool RNAV approach with only a 4 mile final!
