Vancouver is a major city in western Canada located in the Lower Mainland region of British Columbia. As the most populous city in the province, the Greater Vancouver area had a population of 2,463,431 in 2016 making it the third-largest metropolitan area in Canada. Vancouver has the highest population density in Canada with over 5,400 people per square kilometer which makes it the fifth most densely populated city in North America.
The approach into Vancouver is like few others in the world. Coming in from the east you will cross over peaks reaching nearly 10,000 feet into the sky. From the North, South and West, you will be treated to spectacular views of the BC coastline.
Nothing says however you must cross over the mountains, there are lots of great valleys that cut their way across the BC interior.
Your mission is to fly from Kelowna (CYLW) to Vancouver (CYVR) with any Canadian Xpress Freeware or payware aircraft that you have the rank to fly and is rated for operations at these airports.
Join Canadian Xpress today in order to participate as there are some great prizes to be won including:
The December 2020 Monthly Challenge is open to all Canadian Xpress® pilots from December 2nd, 2020 until December 29th, 2020.

13-23 November 2020 Navigraph is conducting a FlightSim Community Survey together with several major add-on developers and organizations within the flight simulation community. The survey, the largest of its kind, aims to gauge the prevailing flight simulation trends and users' requests for future development.
Like previous years, this survey has an emphasis on the major flight simulators such as microsoft flight simulator - MSFS , lockheed martin prepar3d - p3d and laminar research X-Plane , but now also includes questions about simulators on mobile devices, combat simulators, and helicopter simulation.
This is the largest and most comprehensive flight simulation survey in the world! By participating you are influencing the future of the community.
On the 10th of December (tentatively) results will be presented on https://blog.navigraph.com, but also by the partners participating to this survey (to the extent they wish to do so).
Wow, what an exciting few weeks since we announced Volanta. Our team is thankful to all of you who signed up. We'll be in touch very soon with steps to gain access to the invite-only beta.
The feedback we've been receiving from everyone has been great. With this, we’ve been able to implement some of the most requested features and shape our roadmap for the future.
We're starting with small numbers of invites to ensure everything is stable, then we’ll invite more people in batches. We're excited to give you all access!
Our team has been working hard (and expanding!) since the announcement. Here are some new features we've added:
Volanta is an easy to use smart flight tracker that integrates all your flight data across all major sims. Volanta gives you one more reason to fly.
Take flight with our easy-to-use interface, which takes all the paperwork out of setting up a flight in your simulator - leaving you more time to enjoy your flight. For those of us who like to complete detailed planning, we support that too.
The Clearwater Airpark (KCLW) is located in the heart of Pinellas County, Florida. The airport sits at an elevation of 71 feet above sea level and is equipped with a newly extended and resurfaced 4108 foot runway and taxiway. It features beautiful landings on both sides with downtown Clearwater present.
Take offs and landings are permitted from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. The FBO is attended daily from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
After two years of work, the new stable release of the free open-source flight simulator FlightGear is finally here: 2020.3! It replaces 2018.3 as our supported, stable version. There's many updated aircraft, visual enhancements and a new default airport/region: Keflavyk (BIKF) in Iceland.
As always there's also internal improvements to the flight models and other simulation systems, bug-fixes, and performance improvements.
We're going to take a proper tour around Iceland in another post, and detail some of the improved feature and aircraft over the next few months. The full change-log is available here. But we'd like to quickly share some highlights below.
Iceland is the world's newest country, if you're speaking geographically: a land of ice and fire. FlightGear models several volcanoes with multiple levels of activity: Eyjafjallajökull which disrupted aviation in 2010, Surtsey, and the brooding, powerful, Katla.
Keflavík International Airport (BIKF) is the featured airport for the release: due to its remote location in the north Atlantic, the long runways have been used by all kinds of aircraft over the years; especially as stop-over for early transatlantic services, but also patrolling military aircraft and transports.
