Love the home for the holidays event, I'm in flights all sorted already. As my last flight was VS76 KMCO-EGCC I like to keep flight continuity so my home for the holidays routes are as follows (with one addition to get me to the start of the trip.

1. EGCC (Manchester) to EHAM (Amsterdam) KL1070 Boeing 737-800 (this gets me to the start point)
2. EHAM (Amsterdam) to CYVR (Vancouver) KL681 Airbus A330-300 (special crew pass)
3. CYVR (Vancouver) to LFPG (Paris Charles De Gaulle) AC838 Airbus A330-300 (Schedule flight)
4. LFPG (Paris Charles De Gaulle) to EGCC (Manchester) my home airport (General aviation routing yet to be booked)

Happy Holidays all

One of the neat things I try to prepare for (learned from years past) is positioning myself correctly for leasing a GA aircraft on the final leg. Hope everyone enjoys - and Happy Holidays! :D

Home for the Holidays
“Home for the Holidays” The Event that I look forward to each year more than any other. It reminds me of the places around the world that I have been. And, with friends and Family that make great memories. More than any other time of the year it causes to reflect on places and events. So, have an abundant Christmas and a Super New Year!
I really appreciate the time and efforts that Tom Little and the gang have put into making this event a success each and every year.
God Bless and Stay Safe!

Just finished my Home for the Holidays flight last night.
KORD - CYVR for the special flight
CYVR - CYPR for the scheduled flight
CYPR - CYPK for the private flight

Just want to say thanks to Tom & all who keep AirSource in the skies. It gives my flight simulating a purpose.
I've been doing the Home for the Holidays since 2014 & look forward to it every year.
