Yes, someone did this laat year… but it is global now
CYBT to CYBD is a VFR route taking you down the coastline and through the valleys of southwestern Canada. This route is around 120-140 miles long, giving a 45 minute flight time at around a 190 kias average in a Dash 8 Q400. I had a tailwind during the first half of the flight, so this may cause longer flights for others with a headwind. I landed on CYBD’s runway 5, a almost straight in if you fly through the valleys leading to the airport. Here are some tips for fly this route:
Take it slow. For the first part feel free to fly between 240 and 200 knots, but slow it down to 180 or so during the valley flying.
Enjoy the scenery. This is a very scenic route, however as a pilot you may have to fly carefully through some of the valleys and coastlines. Do the best to enjoy.
DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT FLY THIS ROUTE VFR. It is unenjoyable this way and harder than the VFR. Also, there is no even semi-close waypoints to make a flightplan with. If I could only say one thing, this would be it.
I hope you all take this advice and enjoy this scenic route, or even make one of your own! Safe flights!
