VFR Group Flight #35
This is the one ya all have been waiting for....my birthday giveaway to you: Colorado mountain flying time!

On my birthday we'll be doing another early morning VFR group flight this Saturday 4/3. 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 at the south ramp in Montrose (KMTJ) 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.

Quickly after our westbound departure we will attempt a touch-and go at Westwinds (D17). The mountain tour will lead us through the valleys to Rifle (KRIL) where we will execute a full-stop-taxi back. It is also there where I will let you know your destination for today's flight. The PE-towered field this week is beautiful Eagle (KEGE) but the untowered alternative will be not much less. Glenwood Springs (KGWS) is one of the most beautiful located airfields in the country.

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 you 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: Western Expansion (WUS) or Combined (ZLA+WUS)
