Charleston, WV Fly-Out (Hub is KCRW Charleston Yeager)
Charleston, WV, home to West Virginia’s largest regional airport. This small, but friendly airport on top of the mountain above the city of Charleston is home to four (4) major airlines; American. Delta, United, and Spirit Airlines. The departure over Charleston and the arrival into Charleston is amazing and also hosts quite some challenges for aircraft arriving into RWY 23. Approach into runway 23 is quite tricky especially if you come in too fast and when you touchdown and don’t get your aircraft slowed down so you don’t over-run RWY 23, so it is going to be quite challenging to keep your speed to where you can do the approach safely. That’s the neat part about this approach.

There will be no specific routing or all that unnecessary info. Routing will be up to the pilots! :) We will schedule every departure 5 minutes apart to keep aircraft from colliding. Aircraft that choose to do a return flight will need to use at least one of the IAP’s listed below.
I will be making a google forms to request a slot and will have a google sheets with the time table of every flight to keep this as organized as possible.
