VFR Group Flight #31
Yellowstone flying time

We'll be doing another early morning VFR group flight this Saturday 3/6. We will be 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 in Gardiner (29S) 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.

We will climb out of the Yellowstone River valley southeastbound. Aftyer a scenic route over Yellowstone National Park our first stop of the day will be a touch-and-go at a high-altitude grass strip, Henrys Lake (U53). From there we will follow the valley northwestbound for the always-fun full-stop-taxi-back landing at Ennis Big Sky (KEKS). Once you have vacated the runway there I will tel each of the participants their destination for today. That can either be Three Forks (9S5) or the PE-towered airport of Bozeman (KBZN)

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 110 kts.

Subscription required for this flight: Western Expansion (WUS) or Combined (ZLA+WUS)
