Event information.

Why are we hosting this event?

Porter Virtual has chosen to host this event, because it’s time to explore some of Newfoundland’s scenic routes and cities. This event will bring us all the way to St. John’s, a city of just over 100,000 people. St. John’s is also the capital of Newfoundland, and is 446 square kilometres in size. It is known for it natural beauty, which include cliffs, lakes and so on, so it’s a must visit in real life and Infinite Flight!

Where will we fly to/from?

We will be departing CYHZ from runway 32 and landing at runway 29 at CYYT. This flight is well known for the strong tail and head winds, so our pilots may be getting a special award if weather is perfect…500 anybody?

Flight plan (subject to change): CYHZ NOTOP 4532N/6150W 4700N/5835W 4713N/5630W 4717N/5403W LODGU 4732N/5252W 4732N/5248W 4733N/5244W ONDAP TESOX CYYT

image Update: More event details!

Time to clarify more things. First off, this event’s scheduled DEPARTURE TIME is 2000Z, Saturday 8th September. That does not mean 8 o’clock in the evening at your local time, we are following the zulu/UTC timezones! More flight details such as the takeoff runway, FPL and more will be available a couple of hours before the flight starts. Please spawn in earlier to ensure we’re all ready!

I’ll take Gate 9 please. Looking forward to this event.


I’ll take a gate please. I just réalisés i’m allowed on the expert server.


You’ve got gate 2A @Philippe_Gilbert! Hope to see you there soon.

Still 4 more gates left everybody!


Sign me up! It’s a very interesting airport to fly to!


What time is this at for me? Montreal, Canada


@Philippe_Gilbert I have no clue, you should search yourself. But, I’m going to assume it’s 4PM, as Montréal is UTC -4 (Malaysia is UTC +8, where I am, so there’s a 12 hour difference)

Please try to find out since I do not know how to convert Zulu time.

image Update: 4 more hours!

4 hours remain until our departure from Halifax, and its almost showtime. Before we head anywhere, let’s clear up a couple of things. We will be departing from runway 32 at CYHZ and landing at runway 29 at CYYT. The final flight plan will be available on the main thread above! Estimated flight time will be around an hour and 20 minutes. All participating group members will be added to an IFC group chat for easier communications. Ready to fly? Let’s go!

image Update: Thank you all!

We’d like to give a big thank you to everybody that attended this heck of an event! Thank you for making it so fun, this truly is one of those flights to remember. Fun fact: the background for this banner is a screenshot of the end of the event, by @VAnuj! He is the same pilot that won our VA photo competition.
