Triple Crown Trails - part3 Tour Details

Status: Active
Description: TRIPLE CROWN TRAIL SERIES Appalachian Trail Tour (AT). The Triple Crown Trail series will consist of three separate tours, the Appalachian Trail tour (AT), Continental Divide Trail tour (CDT) and Pacific Crest Trail tour (PCT). The Triple Crown refers to the three major U.S. long-distance hiking trails. The Triple Crown of Hiking is awarded to individuals who hike all 3 trails in their entirety. An award will be issued at the completion of each tour. The AT is approx. 2,180 miles long. It's southern terminus is at Springer Mountain, GA. and it's northern terminus is Mount Katahdin in Maine. This is a GA tour. The tour stops at alot of small airports with short runways. Some of the towns on the tour are adjacent to the trail, however, others are located miles from the trail. The AT is remote in certain areas, thus, some of the airports are located away from the trail. NOTAM: 1st leg, KDZJ is shown as 46A in FSX. Considering all the short runways, Jim recommends using a single engine Cessna type AC or Beech Baron 58 for this GA tour. A big thank you to MEC235 Jim S for building this Triple Crown Tour. BE AWARE: This tour was built in FSX so if you are flying newer sims there might be some airports no longer in the sim. BE AWARE: If you can't find the airport take the leading "K" from the ICAO and you might find it that way.
