Saint Paul Airlines Civil War battlesfields tour
Yoland Grosjean for St Paul Airlines – 2015
This is a new division of SPA Special Operations and I think that it is a distinctive addition to our flight operations. As far as I know, no other VA or commercial “payware” offer something similar, combining the pleasure of flight simulation and a cultural side bringing the opportunity to learn history and geography.
As a great percentage of our SPA pilots are US citizens, I decided to begin this new series of exclusive SPA flights with a tour of the US Civil War battlefields. It is not fully exhaustive as I had to create an itinerary which would be well-matched with the use of an aircraft. Thus I had to avoid too short hops (just a few miles) and find available airfields.
I would suggest to using a single or twin prop(s) aircraft, bearing in mind that quite a few airfields have rather short grass airstrips.
Below you will find each historic battlefield destination included in this tour and a link to further information available on the net. I strongly encourage everyone taking part in this program to use these links so as to learning more about the major event in the making of a great nation, modern USA.

The American Civil War Battlefields Tour

The American Civil War (1861–1865), often referred to as The Civil War in the United States, was a civil war fought over the secession of the Confederacy.
In response to the election of an anti-slavery Republican as President, Abraham Lincoln, eleven southern "slave states" declared their secession from the United States and formed the Confederate States of America ("the Confederacy"); the other 25 states supported the federal government ("the Union").
After four years of warfare, mostly within the Southern states, the Confederacy surrendered and slavery was outlawed everywhere in the nation. Issues that led to war were partially resolved in the Reconstruction Era that followed, though others remained long unresolved.
