I-05 Rating:BUR to LAS!? Throw us 120 knot pilots a bone!

Just did my flight planning in Foreflight for this rating and it shows a 1 hour and 48 minute flight time.

Couldn't you all offer the option of KSNA as a destination... or even KSAN?

Puttering along for 2 hours isn't my idea of a great time and I think the option for a shorter trip should be available as SID/STAR procedures are the real test; not cross country flying.

Just my two cents.... :shock:

The problem is that TEC routes exist between your options.

Paul, as Marcus pointed out, it's challenging to find short range flights that mandate the use of a SID and a STAR.

Perhaps consider using the long XC flight as an opportunity to bolster your instrument scan using a combination of panel-only views (simulating IMC), not using the autopilot, or even going partial panel?

Hello Paul,

suggestion: Many controllers approve 2x and 4x flight when requested. That could cut the flight time down to 20-40 minutes.
