VFR Group Flight #25
Easy navigation offers lovely views, splitted fun is double fun

We'll be doing another early morning VFR group flight this Saturday 1/23. The 25th edition already and it's going to be a good one. We will departing from an uncontrolled field again but you'll never know if you land at an uncontrolled or PE-staffed field.

Start your sim of choice, load up at a vacant ramp location of the Stancraft Jet Center on the northside of the airport in Coeur d'Alene (KCOE) and log into the Pilotedge network to join. We will use the #Briefing Room 1 on the Pilotedge discord server for the briefing. The briefing starts at 8:00 am PST. Information about the Pilotedge discord server can be found at the links below. After everyone is informed and ready we will advise when we switch to the local CTAF frequency.

Navigation will be an easy one today. The I-90 leads us the way. From the field we head southbound towards the lake and join the I-90 eastbound fron there. Through the valleys offering great views. After about 30 miles we will make a touch-and-go in Kellogg (S83) and proceed eastbound afterwards again. Another 40 miles further eastbound along the I-90 it's time to split up again, I will advise you your destination for today in time. Some of us will have the opportunity to continue to follow the scenic route along the I-90 and end up with a full stop landing with PE-ATC in Missoula (KMSO). The other participating pilots will find their way through the valleys northeastbound and end today's flight with a landing at lakeside Polson (8S1). After landing at the appointed airport we debrief on the discord server again.

This is a pretty basic procedure flight but with great views and an exciting element. It is suitable for beginners however because it might include a landing at a class D airport, I highly recommend you to achieve at least the CAT-ratings up to the CAT-2 if you'd like to join. Preferably fly an aircraft that is easily able to maintain a cruise speed of around 90 kts.
