Pennsylvania is the 6th largest US state by population with nearly 13 million residents. Because of this, it is one of the highest concentrations of commercial airports in the country with a total of 56, most which are of small, regional size and are fairly evenly spaced out throughout the state for easy access. On October 12th, Plane & Pilot will be hosting a flyin-flyout combination at one of these small airports. Wilkes-Bare/Scranton International Airport (KAVP) is located in the northeast corner of the state and serves the 2 cities it is named after. Attendees will fly a variety of commercial, corporate, and GA aircraft into the airport from destinations around the country and meet up before flying back out. We hope that you can come to this unique event and give this underserved airport some love! Everyone is welcome Grade 2+! Just post below and we will add you to the list.
Date / Time: 2019-10-12T17:30:00Z
If you are flying GA or corporate, you can choose any route you want as long as you use an aircraft no larger than 737 BBJ. If you are flying commercial, please only use aircraft and routes that fly out of KAVP in real life. This includes returning to the same airport you arrived from in order to simulate a realistic “out and back”. You can find a list of commercial airlines and routes in the “Assignments” section below.
Schedule your flight to arrive at KAVP at 1730Z or a little earlier. You can get an estimated flight time by planning your flight at fpltoif.com
Plane & Pilot ATC will be present at this event, please follow all instructions to help everything run smoothly.
After you land in KAVP, taxi to the apron assigned to you in the “Assignments” section. There are 4 different aprons that we will use for this event, 2 GA (Green), and 2 commercial (Blue and Red). The blue apron will be used for commercial aircraft if the terminal fills up. Please park in a somewhat orderly fashion so that we can fit lost to aircraft in the small spaces.
After landing, please do not leave or despawn until the flyin part of the event is over.
Around 1900Z or when our staff give permission, pushback and then proceed to fly back to your starting airport.
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.
To join, please comment your route and aircraft. If you are flying commercial, please only use aircraft and routes that fly out of KAVP in real life.
