Loading/Bid a Tour Flight

Pilots are reminded of the proper procedure for loading a Tour Flight: / Flying / Completing tours/tour legs:

1. From the list of tours that appear on the Active tour page: (via the Tour Center tab), choose the tour you want to fly. (Best go in order as each tour (so far), is a continuation of the previous tour).

7. After all the legs of a tour have been flown, the completing pilot will receive the corresponding tour award.

=========================================================================================

The only restriction at MFC for tour flights (As well as any other flight) is achieving -600fpm or under landing rates and using our prop aircraft (no Jets). (Verified by Cigar Box)

A fitting aircraft is usually recommended for each tour (or close equivalent) that would fit the landing in the tour but also put a great variety of planes in a list for pilots to fly as options to fly - and you can even fly each leg of a tour with a different aircraft if you want - (Use Cigar Box to choose your airplane selection). .
