Known as the “Charlotte of the West”, Salt Lake City International Airport (KSLC) is one of Delta Airline’s primary regional hubs. Every day, SkyWest airlines operates up to over 200 flights a day to small communities of the northwest states under the Delta Connection name. These destinations range from popular tourist destinations like Burbank, CA, to beautiful wilderness towns like Missoula, MT. On February 15th, Plane & Pilot invites you to join us as we simulate this massive operation that SkyWest pilots experience every day! We will combine a flyin and a flyout: Attendees will be able to fly CRJs and E series jets out of KSLC to real destinations all over the country, and then fly back to the hub again to land at the same time, just like a real “out and back” flight schedule. We hope you can join us! Everyone Grade 3+ is welcome! Just post below and we will add you to the list.
Aircraft: Delta Connection CRJ or E170
Date / Time: 2020-02-15T15:00:00Z → 2020-02-15T19:00:00Z
You can choose to fly any route that Delta Connection/Skywest operates out of Salt Lake City in real life (seasonal or year-round), as long as it is under 2 hours long each way. A full list of routes out of the airport can be found In the “Assignments” section below.
Do not use any aircraft besides the Delta Connection CRJ series or E170. If possible, use the variant (-200, -700, -900, or 170) that is used on your chosen route in real life.
Spawn in to KSLC atleast 10 minutes before starting time, and do not push back until 1500Z.
Make sure to use your assigned gate during both the fly in and fly out. Identify your gate before you leave so that you park at the correct one later on.
Try your best to leave your turn around airport at a time that puts you landing back at the hub at 1900Z or a little after. For some routes, this might mean turning around as soon as possible. For others, you might need to spend serveral on ground first. You can get an estimated flight time by planning your flight at fpltoif.com
After you land back at Salt Lake, taxi to your original assigned gate. Do not despawn until we announce that the event is over on the official PM. It should not go past 1930Z.
IFATC will be present at this event, please make sure to follow all of their instructions to help this event run smoothly and not be reported.
The event will be coordinated via a PM sent out 24 hours before start time. Please be present on that PM at all times during your flight for additional instructions.
