We have received our dispatches to “The Cambria Ice Fields” and we will be extensively exploring this RTMM area. There are 10 Ice stations in the RTMM CIRP. The new Maule aircraft that we previously received have a slight skis defect so for this adventure we now are going to utilize our C185 fleet with wheels/skis: (but you can use any similar type aircraft which might be equipped with skis as we head out to the Ice fields). Note: There are no supplies in the middle of the ice fields so we will have to head back to Stewart to refill fuel and stock up on other resources. Welcome to the C.I.R.P. Cambria Icefield Research Project and to the VA adventure: “Exploration into RTMM's CIRP” Please ensure to go to the downloads section and download the file: AKA649-668-T Exploration into the RTMM-CIRP – Info Docs, Flight Plans and Maps In the CIRP Docs folder – CIRP Pilot Brief, in that download, is all the information required including the scenery and CIRP add-ons.

Status: Active
Description: We are in the middle of the ice fields and there is still a lot of ground left to cover in our exploration as you now realize as part 1 of the CIRP adventure made it to PF47. There is the rest of the ice field stations themselves to finish (PF48 and PF49) plus there is variety of other activities and locations within the CIRP and vicinity that needs our attention. We will be using the C185 aircraft for this CIRP continuance to the Summit as our Maule aircraft are still in for modification, but again, you can use any similar type aircraft which might have wheels and skis as we continue our exploration of the CIRP before we finally head back to Misty’s. New Note: (Flights AKA672-T through AKA676-T) were designed for RTMM excursions as land excursions in the CIRP Hovercraft MK35 or the CIRP Stalwart "Alvis" Amphibious vehicle V431.

To the Summit and Beyond adventure: 20 legs: Flights AKA669-T through AKA688-T. (Have an eye around Soule Halfway Cabin and Kitsault Gold Pan: look for a flat area to land as a huge storm buried the airstrip yesterday.. or in lieu of an aircraft, you can also attempt navigation in the land vehicles.
