Why are we hosting this event?
We’re hosting this event because…it’s our first anniversary! As Porter Virtual turns one year old, we’ve dediced to celebrate by hosting this year’s first Porter Escapes event to Halifax from Ottawa. In real life, this is a popular flight that connects two of our biggest hubs together, and we think that this flight will be very fitting for the occasion.
Where will we fly to/from?
We will be departing from CYOW on either of the two runways available to us. Depending on the tailwinds, this flight to Halifax should take about an hour and a half, with ground speeds possibly reaching 500 knots! It’s a great chance for our pilots to earn a special award too.
Flight plan (subject to change): CYOW AVVON VIKNO LAFIT RABIK ANTOV EBONY EBKID MUVOX CYHZ
As Porter Virtual aims to be highly realistic, we will try and follow all proper Q400 flying procedures from SIDS/STARS to speeds, etc. ALL AIRCRAFT MUST MAINTAIN 6NM SAFETY DISTANCE! For all Q400 info, visit our exclusive Training Centre!
