Region: Quebec, Canada
Aircraft: Dash-8-Q400 (Porter livery)
Airports: CYTZ and CYQB
Why are we hosting this event?
It has been a good couple of months since we last hosted our Porter Escapes event to Halifax, and we’re returning with a bang! This time, we’ll be travelling from Toronto to the beautiful and historical Quebec City. Featuring an eye catching approach with the Saint Lawrence river, and nearby mountains, this event is guaranteed to be a special one. Whether you are a Porter pilot or just a curious IFC member, this event is for everyone!
Where will we fly to/from?
As usual, we will be departing from CYTZ on either runway 08 or 26. We’ll pass the nearby Toronto skyline immediately after departure, so watch for that! A relatively short 1 hour plus hop will eventually bring us to CYQB, where we’ll approach and land on either of their two runways. Fun fact: this flight is typically operated in our VA as PD513.
Flight plan (subject to change): CYTZ TALEB BOMET NOPOT TIGET 4455N/7613W VERTI AGLUK SOKYE PESAC 4636N/7200W CYQB
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!
Sign up now!
As usual, whenever we host an event that departs from CYTZ, make sure to sign up as quickly as possible because this airport has a very limited number of gates (only 10 available), so it’s a first come first served basis. As always, just comment your preferred gate number below. Remember our scheduled zulu departure time which can be seen above, and do come if you sign up! Participants will be added to a group DM on the IFC when the event is about to begin. That is where all operations and important information will be shared.
