Event information.

Why are we hosting this event?

Porter Virtual has chosen to host this event because who doesn’t love the city of Thunder Bay? Even the name itself already sounds interesting. Located on the outskirts of Ontario, Thunder Bay is built on Lake Superior, which can be seen in the event banner. The city boasts a population of 108,000, and is a popular tourist destination within North America. And guess what? Porter proudly serves the airport of CYQT!

Where will we fly to/from?

We will be departing CYTZ from either runway 26 or 08. Due to headwinds, this flight will take an approximate 1 hour and 40 minutes at normal cruising speed. But trust us, the views are spectacular.

Flight plan (subject to change): CYTZ 4403N/7941W 4411N/7943W YEE 4545N/8155W 4624N/8338W WAGGO DELGI 4814N/8858W EBKIL 4826N/8904W BEROB CYQT


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!

Weee, this is going to be a fun one!


image Update: Thunder Bay facts!

Time for some Thunder Bay facts! Did you know, there is a huge piece of landmass called the Sleeping Giant - and from a specific angle, it looks like a giant sleeping on its back. The Sleeping Giant is located on the Sibley Peninsula. Where did Thunder Bay get its name from? Well, the answer is Thunder Bay, located on the head of Lake Superior. And finally, this city started as a French fur trading outpost, way back in the 17th century. Did that get your interest? Sign up and join us then!

I would join if it wasn’t 3 am! Your events are very good snd they should be getting more attention!


I will take a gate. Any one works


We strive to use the most realistic procedures for the Q400. Our fleet is tiny but it gives you time to master the aircraft.


Sign me up, please. :)

image Update: 6 gates remain!


Oh no, there’s only 6 gates remaining for our event to Thunder Bay! Don’t worry though, because there’s still plenty of space, so make sure to sign up if you want to join us!
