Super Bowl Special Event 02/04/17 - ARRIVAL event

Postby MTN2245 » Fri Jan 27, 2017 8:00 pm

Hello to all my fellow pilots and Football fans!

Please note that this is an ARRIVAL event. Depart your chosen airport when you need to, but lets all try to ARRIVE at KIAH around the same time - around 16:00 MST.

As you all know Super Bowl LI is upon us. Super Bowl Sunday is Feb. 5th
New England Patriots vs Atlanta Falcons at NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas. Saturday Feb. 4th will be a big travel day for all the fans from Boston, MA and Atlanta, GA. Mountain-Air is in a position to Fly these die hard fans to the game at a much cheaper rate then the bigger airlines. I am looking to put together as many pilots as i can to help fly these passengers to Houston, TX.



Boston flight is 9991

Boston Logan International Boston, MA (KBOS) (Gateˢ C20, C21) to

George Bush Houston Intercontinental Airport Houston, TX (KIAH) (Gateˢ A17 -A19 & B27 - B31)
B7xx - E170/ Commuter.
Dispatch suggests a B738 for this flight, but as always, you may use any aircraft and/or route of your choice.

The suggested route is BLZZR3 BLZZR BAF Q448 PTW J48 CSN FANPO Q40 NIOLA Q40 AEX SKNRD4 (1425nm/4.6hrs @FL350)

Atlanta Flight is 5041

Hartsfield - Jackson Atlanta International Airport Atlanta, GA (KATL) (Gateˢ T9 – T15) to

George Bush Houston Intercontinental Airport Houston, TX (KIAH) (Gateˢ A17 -A19 & B27 - B31)
B7xx - E170/ Commuter.

Dispatch suggests a CRJ9 for this flight, but as always, you may use any aircraft and/or route of your choice

The suggested route is POUNC2 STEIT AEX DOOBI2 (728NM/2.3hrs @FL320)

The use of TeamSpeak is encouraged so you may talk with and listen to other Mountain Air Pilots. This Group Flight qualifies as 1 Group Achievement Point and 20 bonus pilot points.

Please Note We would like to have everyone approaching KIAH around the same time so please plan your flight accordingly.

NOTE: To automatically dispatch this flight up to 12 hours prior to departure, simply click on the above highlighted flight number. This will take you to the Flight Detail Page where you can dispatch the flight for use in ACARS. ACARS allows you to facilitate your status on the MTN Flight Board as well as record your flight log automatically. Please remember when dispatching your flight that you are scheduling your pushback/start time. Look at the flight board and schedule your pushback/start time 4 Min after the last flight time scheduled. Please make sure you are ready for pushback/start at your requested time. If for some reason you can’t be ready, just reschedule your time and coordinate with the other pilots after you for the next possible pushback/start time.

Pilots of all levels of experience are encouraged to join the flight regardless of available navigation programs. Use VOR to VOR navigation if necessary and ask other pilots for directions if ATC is not available for vectors.
NOTE The current 3hr flight restriction DOES NOT APPLY for this event for the purposes of the Bostin to Houston flight. Points will be added after the flight.

NOTE 2 This is a group flight please fly with the group as this is a great time to get together as an airline and interact with each other.

Hope to see you in the "Group Flight Skies"

John--

It's not completely clear to me, so just to verify, we want to arrive KIAH beginning at 14:00 MST, correct? Meaning, of course, our flights will have to start at the appropriate earlier time to arrive KIAH at 14:00 MST or later. Am I reading that right?

Gary, Thank you for pointing that out. I have edited the post to reflect that this is an arrival event. Please everyone, reread the posting and plan accordingly.

Now I am confused and that is not hard to do.

The original post states arrive at 1600 MT and the post by MTN001 states 1400 MST.

What time should we arrive at the Super Bowl to watch Tom Brady win????

The post said event is on 2/4/17 meaning you will arrive in Houston on Saturday to watch Tom Brady trying to deflate all NFL footballs in the lobby of his team's hotel.

And the actual answer is as seen below
but lets all try to ARRIVE at KIAH around the same time - around 16:00 MST.


The problem would have been solved if the event organizer puts suggested departure time on each of two airports of departure.

Regards,

Aharon

John changed his original post to clarify. The intended arrival time in Houston is about 16:00 MST.
