SEATTLE to PORTLAND
So you may know that for the past month or so I’ve really liked flying into Portland and it has become one of my favorite airports. Yesterday I decided that I would fly Seattle to Portland in the Alaska Dash 8 Q-400 after I landed in Seoul from Toronto (you’ll see that soon). As far as I know this is the shortest route in the US flown by a mainline aircraft as Alaska flies their 738s, 739s and A319s as well as the Dash 8 operated by Horizon. I flew Portland to Seattle and back a little while ago (A Blue Day in Rip City to the an Afternoon in the Emerald City) and I loved the route, I used to fly all around the Seattle area in 2016 when I didn’t have a subscription, so I consider this route a “classic” if that makes sense. I finished my flight to Seoul just before 5PM PST so I had just enough time to fly the short route and land at sunset in Portland. My flight time was only 24 minutes which is kind of funny because you could fly that probably 5 times in the time it takes me to make these topics 😂.
I also rarely fly the Dash-8 so it was a lot of fun, it is very easy to fly (not to land) and is really maneuverable for steep turns. I may even fly it from Montreal to Toronto tonight because of how much fun it is to use.
