NASCAR Charters Event 3

Posted by Mark Toler on 02/24/2021

Event #3 of the 2021 NASCAR Season




This week for Event 3 of the 2021 NASCAR Season we are still in Florida but further South in Miami.  The charters will begin on Thursday February 25th and run through Sunday February 28th.  We have routes out of all of our main hubs at MSP, DTW, MEM, PANC, EHAM, RJAA, and our NASCAR Hubs at CLT and KJQF into Miami Intl. Airport (KMIA). 

Our route numbers are NWA7000 - NWA7037 and pilots can fly any route we have in our system into KMIA and get credit as well. 

As always the top 3 pilots with the most flights will receive bonus hours as well as extra bonus hours for the pilot who has the best landing rate below -100 fpm. 

So lets have a Great turn out for Event 3 like we did for Events 1 & 2 as we continue the 2021 NASCAR Charters Season.


Port Authority Pandemonium: SW

"Citation 5MW square your base to final, you're number 3 following an Archer turning a 5 mile final, additional traffic will depart prior to your arrival, wind 250 at 8, runway 27 cleared to land"

This is what happens when we staff Stewart for our Tower Thursday. Bring everything you got and expect minimum time on the runway cause we don't have many gates and you might get spun. Bada bing bada boom welcome to New Yawk!

As part of a semi-regular series known as Tower Tuesday/Thursday, we will staff a tower within ZNY every so often and ask you to jam it from all directions. Fly in IFR too, just to throw a wrench in the plans  ;D

Airport: KSWF
Date & Time: February 25th, 2021 from 6PM to 9PM Eastern (2300z - 0200z)

BVA Fly-In

Posted by Mark Toler on 02/24/2021


This week's BVA event features a special twist on our normal GA Fly-In series. On February 28th we're celebrating two great Living History foundations in the New England area: The Collings Foundation and the New England Air Museum. The New England Air Museum is an aerospace museum located at Bradley Intl. (KBDL), and The Collings Foundation is a non-profit located in a small town just outside Worcester.

We encourage pilots to fly their favorite vintage or historical aircraft into KORH or KBDL from any of the surrounding staffed airports.
