Recommended Posts

Samos Airport is named after Aristarchos of Samos, an ancient astronomer and mathematician, and lies within 5 km from the nearby town of Pythagorio. The airport features a single short runway serving both arrivals and departures. The airports surroundings leave little room for error or mistake on the behalf of the pilots – with nearby mountains and sea at the end of the short runway. Samos is the island airport with the most notorious landing approaches in Greece. It involves pure stick and rudder demanding hand-type of flying in between mountains. There are often strong Meltemi winds blowing from the north during the summer months which further contribute to the difficulty of the landing.

There is only one terminal within the airport. There are five boarding gates, none of which have jet-bridges. Passenger facilities are split across two floors and include a duty-free shop and a small café.

Canadian Xpress would like to invite all pilots & virtual airlines to join us on Saturday, October 15th at 10h00edt (14h00z) and 21h00edt (Sunday 01h00z) for our October 2016 fly-in where we depart from Geneva (LSGG) and head southeast through Italy and the Adriatic Sea, along the Balkans coastline to the Greece islands and into Samos Airport (LGSM).

This is an open invitation to all pilots no matter what your flying experience to attend this Canadian Xpress sponsored event that will be flown on the VATSIM network.

More information regarding this event including operational details, charts, optional add-on scenery and Canadian Xpress Model Sets can be viewed by visiting www.CanadianXpress.ca or by directly downloading our Fly-In document here.

See you all on Saturday the 15th!
