It seems that the holiday season comes around faster each year. Maybe because I'm getting older or something.
I look forward to the home for the holidays flights.
Here are my flight plans for this year.
Seattle (KSEA) to Calgary (CYYC)
Calgary (CYYC) to Castlegar (CCG)
Castlegar (CYCG) to Vancouver (CYVR) My home airport.
Thanks for the series Tom.

Hey Tom
Thank You so much for getting me squared away with my log-in to the Forums!

Hey Andre, I agree with you “I love this event!”
I guess the feeling in a virtual way that you can direct events in one’s own self of gratification is very appealing. Not only in the Holidays Spirit but it is very appealing as a pilot for the AirSource Community. So, Thank You Tom and all the others that might have lent a helping hand. I appreciate it very much and I look forward to next years’ event of course!

Home For The Holidays Tour
KTUL – KLAS
KLAS – KIAH
KIAH - KDFW

Bonus
KAMA – KABQ

Great Fun!
