VFR Group Flight #33
The North of the South

We'll be doing another early morning VFR group flight this Saturday 3/20. 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 location in Porterville (KPTV) 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 PDT. 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 depart southbound and avoid the Bakersfield class D for a fullstop-taxi-back at the closer-to-downtown convenient Bakersfield Municipal (L45) airport. We will depart the Bakersfield area southwest bound and overfly a pass to reach New Cuyama (L88) for a touch-and-go. After that quick visit to L88 we climb to overly the mountains and adapt for our destination of the day. I will let each of you know in time if that's drone training facility Lompoc (KLPC) or the PE towered airport of Santa Maria (KSMX)

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 also offers great possibilities to work on your CTAF skills and 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: Los Angeles Center(ZLA) or Combined (ZLA+WUS)
