2017 Summer Solstice (Z81) Salmon Lake a Success

The Summer Solstice Event on Salmon Lake was a great success. We had eleven pilots who were either at Salmon Lake or participated in activities and talked on TeamSpeak. A group flight was made from (Z81) Salmon Lake to Will Rogers up at Point Barrow, Alaska, flying three DH2C Beavers on floats. Weather was an issue, as it always is in Alaska during the summer. We used VFR weather on VATSIM to launch off of the lake and fly to the farthermost point, North, in the United States. We hope that a good time was had by all.

Attendees at the event, either at the lake, and/or participating on TeamSpeak were Captain Derek Squire (WWA3032), Captain Rob Wilkerson (WWA2574), Captain Steve Canham (WWA11), Captain Sean McConnell (WWA659), Captain Chris Trott (WWA3382), Captain Ron Oines (WWA2894), Captain Maratib Ali (WWA2752), Captain Mike Gibb (WWA1702), Captain Scott Robinson (WWA2660), Captain Eddie Harper (WWA2683), and Captain Mark Kusiak (WWA3480). Thank you all for making the event a success.

The group flight to Point Barrow was an adhoc group flight that was done on VATSIM and others who showed later also flew other flights in and around the lake. Turnout for a middle-of-the-week event was high. We missed those who were unable to attend. There will be other events coming soon. Congratulations to all those who participated and flew in Alaska. This years event demonstrated Alaska bush flying at its best. Everyone have a safe flight home. Look forward to next year's event.
