Hello everyone! This event will be a fly-out event at the famous Aspen/Pitkin County Airport, noted for its difficult approach and obstacle departures! This event will be simulating high-density traffic departures at the airport. Please make sure to pay attention to all the information listed in this thread, especially the terrain avoidance departure procedures.
Aspen/Pitkin County Airport:
Located 4 miles outside of Aspen, Colorado, Aspen Airport is served by American Eagle, Delta Connection, and United Express. These 3 airlines mostly bring in skiers to the surrounding world-class ski resorts, along with many private general aviation aircraft present… Due to its location and size, some aircraft restrictions are in place, such as no aircraft over 100,000 pounds, and a maximum 95 ft wingspan limitation. The terrain and elevation also make it quite a challenge to operate at this airport!
NOTAM: The use of Unicom at this event is strongly recommended for traffic awareness. Please remember to give way to traffic on the right of your aircraft when taxing, and do not cut out in front of people to get to the runway first. Runway 33 departures will be required due to airport restrictions. For specific Runway 33 departure procedures, please see the “Departure Procedures” section below.

If you are unaware of how to use SIDS, please take a look at this educational video related to IFR procedures.
