Hello and welcome to this one-of-a-kind event! Today, we are bringing you an event from the Canadian Rockies, some of the most scenic mountains in the world. On top of that, this event also includes an airport that not many of us know about, a tiny airport in the heart of the mountains — well, technically it’s a heliport. This event will be both scenic and fun!
Co-hosted by @ItsBlitz.
We will be flying from Calgary Springbank to Kananaskis Village Helistop.
CYBW (Calgary Springbank).
FE7 (Kananaskis Village Helistop).
Casual Server (since landings are nearly impossible here 😜).
Cub Crafters XCub (any livery).
CYBW 220KW SIMTA FE7 (fly visual from SIMTA to FE7).
Once the event starts, we will taxi to the runway in use one after another, and takeoff in that sequence. We will then follow the specified FPL, altitude, and speed until SIMTA. From there, we will follow the leaders, @ItsBlitz and @Butter_Boi through the pattern to the active runway at FE7 to land.
We will release more information via the official event PM.

Participants and rankings
Here are the landing competition rankings, great job everyone!
Here are the rules and NOTAMS for this event, please follow them and everyone will have fun!
Please spawn at least 15 minutes before the event starts.
We will taxi in order of hangar numbers. So the person in hanger 1-1 would taxi first, then 2-1, and so on.
Please follow all procedures and follow the specified FPL.
Do NOT mess around during the event, even though it’s on casual. You may fool around after everyone has landed at FE7.
If you can’t land it, no worries. Feel free to do pattern work and retry the landing after everyone lands.
Even though we are on casual, please do NOT spam Unicom with messages.
most importantly, have a great flight!
This is the section for the mini landing competition I’ve been speaking of. This will take place as part of the main event upon arrival to FE7. The airport (heliport), is tiny and has a scenery glitch, which is why this event is on CS, and we are challenging pilots to a landing competition. If you want to join, just say so when you signup!
I would like to thank @ItsBlitz for telling me about this airport, and helping me co-host this too. This wouldn’t of been possible without you!
And thank you, the IFC, for checking out this event and signing up. It really means a lot to have you here!
Have fun! 😁
