CFB Trenton to Inuvik/Mike Zubko Airport

I had been involved with a certain simulated air traffic network for about twelve years, and recently decided to get back in the saddle.  Also joined a “virtual airline” specialising in Canadian military aircraft, as that is the closest I am likely to get to actual flight deck time in a CC-177.  I’m going to log my sim-time here, just to keep tabs on places I’ve been so far.

RACER 702
Departure Airport: CYTR
Destination Airport: CYEV
Aircraft Type/Tail: CC-177 / 1777702
Fuel Consumed: 100,650 lbs. (approx)
Route: CYTR 1.YCF Q502 YEE J557 YSB NCA22 YSF NCA23 HARUN NCA28 BITRO CYEV
Hours: 6.1
Tasking: Transporting Supplies to Inuvik, Northwest Territories for current operations taking place there. Supplies include general equipment, medical supplies, clothing, and 6 Military Personnel; 2 Avionic Technicians, 2 Mechanical Engineers, 1 Flight Engineer, and 1 CF Doctor.
Remarks: Very strong winds at Trenton on departure (from 290 gusting 24-26 kts). Crosswind component was 19kts—within max tolerance for takeoff. If we’d left a little later with the winds gusting up to 34kts (crosswind component 24.8), it would have been dicey—within a hair’s breadth of the limit.

Quiet, uneventful flight to Inuvik/Mike Zubko. Nasty 100kt headwinds over Orillia had me thinking about hunting for more favourable cruise conditions at another altitude, but they eventually abated and dropped down to 50-60 for the remainder of the flight.  Made 8,000fpm tactical descent to approach altitude for visual Rwy 06 arrival.
