The route is from Revelstoke (CYRV) to Banff (CYBA) following the Trans-Can (Trans-Canada Highway) with a half-time stop at Golden (CYGE). The road is fairly easy to spot - even through dense trees. The Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) also runs this way but is a bit harder to see in FG, being black 'n' all. This is especially so when it goes into a tunnel.
We will be running at about 100 knots. So it should work for large amount of FGUK hangar helicopters and propeller aircraft.

Correction on the "Beavers can't climb trees" story. It was just inside Alberta (not Montana).
"The single engine airplane failed to climb following a downhill takeoff that was completed with a tailwind. It bounced several times then struck trees, stalled and came to rest in a marsh. Two occupants were injured while three others were unhurt."
