Fall/Winter 2016/17 Lineup

Posted on 10/31/2016 by Norm Richards

Hope all have had a great summer. Welcome back as we approach Fall 2016 and then Winter 2016/2017.



The following tours/adventures and/or excursions will kick off our Fall 2016 adventure/excursion tour lineup and later Winter 2016/2017. (The designer reserves the right to change this lineup as deemed necessary).

NOTE: Commencing with tour 61, AKA has over 1000 tour flights. To maintain order in the database, flights numbered 1000 and over will be numbered and entered in Bluebox as AKAT-01000, AKAT-01001, AKAT-01002 etc.   (This will permit the database to maintain order and sequence upto AKAT-99999. (99,000 tour type flights).

I am also starting a new series of flight coded "-SO". These are stopover type flights that will match the new Stopover type Tours commencing with Tour 66. So whenever you see a flight with -SO it will be a stopover type flight leg.

The transition to the fall lineup began Sept 12, 2016 and will continue as listed above. As the fall season begins, the ice will start to form as the warmth of spring and summer leaves this area: Oct 19, 2016 waterways are starting to freeze up in Alaska so the floats and amphibious aircraft for the most part are closed up.

Bring on "Fall and winter" as new excursions come your way: Clean up and tune up your wheels and skis for the Fall and Winter season and get ready to winterize your floats and amphibians. Just a reminder that there is also a tour download for each tour: which includes tour details, most with prepared flight plans as well as skyvector map links and some with special add-on scenery to enhance your sim scenic environment.  

The next transition will take us into the winter season should be on or about - Dec 21, 2016 and the ICE and/or "Real Colds" start to come out!.

We hope you continue to join us here for a great year and if you want some great flying adventures in excellent scenery areas, with a great bunch of fellow pilots, "Bush at its best", so to speak, stay with us here at Alaska Adventures VA.
