      57. BC Lighthouses - Ocean Falls to Vancouver Harbour Excursion - Open June 13, 2016   06/11/2016

      57-BC Lighthouses - Ocean Falls to Vancouver Harbour - Open June 13, 2016 In tour 53. RTMM Dispatch 006 - The Lighthouses - (May 2, 2016), we started at CAH2 Ocean Falls SPB and flew northward visiting lighthouses in Alaska. In this excursion: we will commence flying out of CAH2 Ocean Falls, Canada but heading southward traveling via the western side of Vancouver Island covering many of the Lighthouses then southward still to view a few points of interest along Olympic National Park, in Port Angeles, Washington USA, before heading back northward for the final few legs destined Vancouver Harbour (CYHC). This dispatch is a totally different type of adventure being a “search and locate type” dispatch where there is a known starting point and static navigational maps: (non-moving maps), to each of the following points or locations with no formalized .pln type flight plans. In this trip, Sky Vector map links for each leg have been created and are provided in the tour download. Feel free to utilize other map sources IE: Google Maps to assist you with land marking. The recommended aircraft for this adventure is the reliable DHC-2 Beaver: float or amphibian version but you can use any similar aircraft variation as long as it is a float or amphibian as all of these locations are water moorings. We hope you enjoy finding all the lighthouses and other points of interest. This excursion has 20 Legs: Flights AKA941-T through AKA960-T. The accompanying tour download is available in the downloads section.       Norm AKA995

      58. Prince of Wales Island – Fly-in Fishing - Open June 13, 2016   06/13/2016

      58-Prince of Wales Island – Fly-in Fishing - Open June 13, 2016 Prince of Wales Island and the surrounding marine waters offer an excellent opportunity for both saltwater and freshwater free fishing games: One of the best fishing areas for King Salmon and Halibut on the entire west coast. The extensive road system on the island provides good access to coastal areas, as well as many streams, rivers and lakes but this trip is a fly-in fishing excursion! We will circumference the Prince of Wales island to some 14 Seaplane bases where their locations located around the island provide great access to the best fishing in the world. We are extending our time on this island to fly into various locations on the island and get in some great fishing. The recommended aircraft for this adventure is the Cessna 172, (a C182 or the reliable DHC-2 Beaver also works well or any type similar) - but it must be a float or amphibian version as all of these locations are all sea plane bases: water moorings. As all of the flight legs between the SPB are very short we’ll get some nice extended time fishing in these waters. Sky Vector map links have been provided for each leg and are packaged in the tour download.  We hope you enjoy the fly-in and fishing for King and Halibut around this island. This dispatch adventure has 14 Legs: Flights AKA961-T through AKA974-T. The accompanying tour download is available in the downloads section.      Norm AKA995

      Coming Soon: 59. Challenge of the Doratidi Trail SDT3 This is Challenge of the “Doratidi” Trail SDT3: An Iditarod trip of sorts! In this excursion, the areas of the Doratidi, which is actually the reversed routes of the Iditarod Trail, will be featured. The require scenery files for SDT3 as well as Unalakleet (PAUN) airport scenery will be contained within the FlyAKA tour download (When th4e tour is activated). (A special thanks to Brad Allen (RTMM) and Pilot here at Alaska Adventures for the tour design as well as the SDT3 add-on scenery for the tour.) The recommended aircraft for this adventure will be the Maule M-7 "Orion" but there are many similar aircraft that you can use IE: C185, DHC-2 etc. These aircraft are great for short fields, fast cruise, a good climb rate, good maneuverability as well as good visibility. The adventure, (when completed) will have 18 legs. So stay tuned (in a few weeks) for Tour # 59. Challenge of the Doratidi Trail SDT3 Norm AKA995
