Piedmont’s Final Bombardier Dash-8 Q400 Flight

These aircraft have been largely replaced by E145 jets. Piedmont Airlines will be completing their last scheduled commercial route with the aircraft on July 4th, 2018.

Can I please have E12A

I have loaded and set the Flight Plan. I updated the FPL to coincide with METAR at Salisbury. Please feel free to copy my FPL from my plane parked at E16.

Take off today is recommended to be from 18L - Altitude FL310 - Speed 220Kts (.6 Mach) . !.5 Hours fuel max needed. Begin -1200 FPM at WIGUQ with Arrival via runway 05. Make for short landing and you can alleviate having to cross a runway on the way to parking. Parking at the corner - there are spots for 2 plates per parking rectangle.

Glad you can join us, It is my pleasure.
