VFR Group Flight #48
How many Grand Canyon airports do exist?
Sorry for the late call! We'll be doing another early morning VFR group flight tomorrow 7/24. It's ZLA time again. 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 Echo Bay (0L9) 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. I am planning touch-and-goes at Temple Bar (U30) and Grand Canyon Caverns (L37) and a full-stop-taxi-back at Grand Canyon West (1G4). Your destination this time will be PE-towered KGCN or untowered Valle (40G) at Grand Canyon Junction.
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)
