Just Planes has once again produced another exceptional HD DVD featuring Air Canada. This DVD features the operations of Air Canada’s E190 to two unique destinations.
Our first round trip takes us from Toronto to Exuma in the Bahamas and as usual, we start off with an introduction to the captain as he reviews the flight plan and other necessary documents prior to pushback. From the cockpit viewers are able to join the crew as they complete cockpit setup and the departure briefing.
Highlights of this flight include thorough reviews of each phase of flight which gives the views all the reasons for each decision the crew makes during the flight. This includes an easy to follow explanation of the route and departure and arrival procedures. Other highlights come as the crew shows the viewers a very unique and highly accurate flight planning software that is used by Air Canada.
It would be a gross injustice not to also mention the stunning beauty of the Caribbean sea and the islands of the Bahamas as the E190 makes its approach to George Town.
An added feature to the filming of this DVD is the availability of multiple views from the cockpit which is shown during take off and landing on each flight. The final highlights of this return trip include a thorough walk around of the aircraft, VFR departure from Exuma, views of the cabin service, Thorough cockpit presentation featuring the PFD (Primary Flight Display) and autopilot.
Our final round trip takes us from Toronto to Havana, Cuba. This is the first time I have had the opportunity to see video documentation of this destination and it was a definite highlight of this DVD. Highlights of this flight include the captain discussing with the viewers some of the special procedures required for flying into Cuban airspace, views of Cape Canaveral and a continuation of the cockpit presentation which covers the MFD (Multi Function Display), ICAS and other systems of the aircraft.
This DVD was an absolute pleasure to watch and I think it deserves two thumbs for the creative editing and overall entertaining content!
