FlightReport #008 // Seattle Tacoma (SEA) - Portland (PDX)

Hey everyone, it’s been a while, but I finally managed to get episode 8 of FlightReport done.
And of course, I will be using the recently released canadian twinprop plane, the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400.
I hope you all enjoy this one, was by far the most laborious but as well best episode in my opinion. Have fun!

Today, we will make a short regional flight in the northwest of the United States, from the birthplace of Boeing, Seattle, from Seattle Tacoma Intl (KSEA / SEA) to Portland (PDX). The route we will fly today belongs to flight number AS2329 and will be flown with a Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 turboprop operated by HorizonAir (Alaska Airlines), registration N447QX.

I did not know you could fly to other regions?? LTN-DTM

Probably because you can’t. I just let it look like I’m flying between regions.
Inter-region flight is not supported on the app so far.

You take off from one region, end the flight, and start in another region.
