    WWI dog fights......a DVA first....NOW EXTENTED to 3 Saturdays

    12:00 pmLRN (Lorraine, France) and SAR (Saarbrucken, Germany)

    It has been a hundred years since WWI ended. I thought it would be a great opportunity for our DVA pilots to get a feel of what it would be like to experience flying a WWI aircraft. As you soon will learn it is very different from modern aircraft's and quite a challenge to fly. Trying to enter a dog fight with one of these aircraft's has now become a deadly challenge. We will try to create the scene of 1917 on the border between France and Germany and bring some of these old birds into a battle.

    NOTAM: NO FEAR OF GETTING A BAD RATING NO VAFS IS ON. JOIN US.

    SCANDINAVIA....Lands of the Midnight Sun

    12:00 pmEKRK (Roskilde, Denmark)

    Our Scandinavia Tour starts at Copenhagen's secondary airport Roskilde. Most of our group flights will be flown to smaller airports, just as they are done with regional airlines in the real world. However there will be a couple of challenges on the way to keep your Weight & Balance department honest. I am talking about short runways and big aircraft's. But for now we will board our twin turbo's and head Northeast.

    SCANDINAVIA.....Lands of the Midnight Sun

    12:00 pmESSB (Bromma, Stockholm, Sweden)

    Here is an airport not often visited, except for regional airlines. This is Stockholm's original airport close to downtown. Finding a location for a large airport was difficult due to the terrain, and the newer Arlanda had to be located far from downtown. However it is connected to downtown with a high speed rail that will bring you to the City in 20 minutes at 120 mph.

    12:00 pmENSS (Vardo, Norway)

    We continue to head North to the island of Svalbard, in the old days known as Spitzbergen. The only airport here is at Longyear. It was here General Nobile started his ill fated flight in his airship "Italia". It was here Roald Amundsen , the famous North Pole explorer, set out to rescue him and the crew. Amundsen never returned and was never found. It was here The Andree expedition started in a balloon in an attempt to cross the North Pole. Their bodies was found on the ice 33 years later. their camera film revealed the struggle on the ice.
