VFR Group Flight #50
My final one for now, Washington state at it's best.

We'll be doing my final early morning VFR group flight for now this Saturday 8/14. It's WUS time and I tried to make something special out of it. 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 Swanson (2W3) 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. On this special 50th edition we'll be doing someting different. My idea is to first visit some challenging airports we have been to before. Swanson was exciting, Strom Field was extremely challenging, Ranger Creek was an extreme dive down into the deep valley, all kinds of fun stuff! After we have completed that part I am planning to say hi or goodbye to the PNW capital Seattle with a huge lap around it's class B airspace. This will be a longer flight than usual but ey, it's my final one for now. Your final landing spot this Saturday could either be PE-tower Olympia (OLM) or uncontrolled private public strip R&K Skyranch (8W9)

After landing at the appointed airport we debrief on the discord server again. This is a pretty basic procedure flight but with great views, challenging airports 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: Western Expansion (WUS) or Combined (ZLA+WUS)
