Welcome to this flight to the Sierra Mountains! The Sierra Mountains are a mountain range in California. The flight is fairly quick from LAX (about an hour), however, the scenery is amazing. If you would like to join this event, simply reply to this topic and state that you would like to. We will be flying this event in a q-400. While you can choose the livery, the generic one would be preferred. The arrival airport (the airport at the Sierra Mountains) is called KBIH or Eastern Sierra Regional. Due to this airport not having parking spots, simply get on the taxiway, and drive over to some land, and park there. Just please make sure to keep the taxiways and runways clean!

The Route

Please try to take off in KLAX on 07L, 07R, 06L, 06R, however, you should still listen to atc. At KBIH there are 3 runways, and you can try to land on any one you want! You can change the route slightly if you want to land on a different runway. We will cruise at 18,000 feet at 320 knots. We will climb at 1,800 fpm at 220 knots.

There are about 4 hours left until the event starts!

The event is starting in less than 15 minutes!

It is time to spawn in!

@Michigan_Red would you like me to be there when for APPR? It’s most convinient for me at home to spawn in at 3.

I think now would be a good time to be atc.

The event is over! Thanks to everyone who participated!

Wow missed 🤦‍♂️ Gg, I’ll be there for the landing competition lol

RIP, I calculated it for the wrong day.
