Event Description
From bad weather events to VFR mountain flying to SFRA and airspace avoidance, BVA's Challenge event is designed to put aviation knowledge to practice. Challenge is about learning through experience. Each event involves a specific activity, or series of activities, for pilots to complete. Past Challenge events have included the Washington and New York SFRAs, Class B airspace avoidance, landing competitions, IFR procedures, and Pilot Ratings Program flights.

This event is not about flying missions or winning points. It's about exercising your multi-tasking ability in challenging and unfamiliar situations—something pilots have to do all the time.
Event Briefing

In this Challenge, we focus on a multitude of airports for our PRP series of flights. IFR flights 16-19 are featured, including two towered airports (Boston Logan, KBOS and Syracuse, KSYR) as well as a handful of untowered airports covered by Boston Center (including Rutland, KRUT, Presque Isle, KPQI, and Lebanon, KLEB). We will have ATC staffed at both towered facilities, as well as Boston Center sectors that overly the airports. These flights are great for both airliner and general aviation traffic, and challenging terrain into multiple airports means controllers don't have radar tracks on aircraft once they begin their approach. For more information, visit the PRP pages (below) for the respective flights and their training material. Good luck!

PRP IFR 16: KSYR-KBOS
PRP IFR 17: KBOS-KRUT
PRP IFR 18: KRUT-KPQI
PRP IFR 19: KPQI-KLEB
