Flew home from Vegas Wednesday. We left around 10:30 Calgary time and cleared customs at 19:00. It was windy again in Vegas. Kids kept loosing their hats so we had to keep a hold of everything while loading the plane. The wind was out of the north so we settled in or a long light to Idaho Falls. With all the wind came all the bumps. It was a fun ride. Snow showers in Salt Lake through to Idaho falls. Approach warned us about moderate turbulently below 10k. We had been in it the whole flight, no different in Salt Lake. The plan was lunch in Idaho falls, found out the restaurant was closed so we settles for beaf jerky and muffins from the terminal store. Next stop was Cut Bank for the last cheaper fuel. Had to drop to 6500 to get out of the mountains around Helena. Bumps and headwind persisted until on final into High River.
It was a great trip with over 2500 nm flown. We seen way more scenery than anyone sitting in a tube at 40 thousand ft and had lots of fun doing it. Kids are great flyers, the bumps do not bother them and never once asked how much farther on a 3.5 hr flight. Well maybe once;-
Disney from the air
Heading to Dana point
Off shore to stay clear of the restricted airspace
Flower fields in Carlsbad
Southern California coast line
We flew out of Fullerton
today around noon. We had to make a left turn to 120 on departure and then get in touch with SoCal
approach. It wasn’t long they had us resume our own navigation and we went direct to Dana Point
, which they were aware of. They approved our cruising altitude of 3500 ft. After Dana Point we turned down the coast. We stayed out over the ocean to be clear of the restricted. It was topped at 2000ft but it felt better staying clear. We switch to many different frequencies for the short 30 min flight. This part of the country has very busy airspace
. I have to silence the kids most of the time as it is very important not to miss an instruction.
Once over Carlsbad we got cleared through the Bravo airspace. We made a slight deviation over Carlsbad so my wife could pictures of the flower fields. Approach allowed us to do so. We were soon on an unrestricted descend to a cross on a mountain before inbound to Montgomery . Unfortunately all the looking for the cross had me miss looking at Torrey Pines soaring site. We flew right over it. Some time there is just no time for site seeing.
We landed at Montgomery Field, the service was great. They were beside us before we even got the plane shut down and the rental car was a minute later.
We are here for a few days on the beach before heading north some time mid next week. So far the trip could not be better.
We leave late this afternoon for Spokane, then down to Redding for the night. Plan is La tomorrow if the weather lets us into the basin. Use the spot above to follow along.
Got 5 minutes, or so? Have a look at some of the flying we do in southern Alberta, Canada. Most of the airplanes here are amateur-built, and all are owned by members of the Calgary Recreational & Ultralight Flying Club. The planes shown here cruise from 75 to 175 mph and we’ve flown all over the continent in them. We fly every chance we can and often engage in group flights at any time of year when the weather is good.
This was shot with a variety of video cameras, including a Drift HD170 Stealth, a Canon HF S30, an iPod Touch 4G, and even a Kodak Playful.
Come along and enjoy a short jaunt with us as we show you some truly fun flying!
I quick trip to Edmonton for lunch. You get to see what is involved to fly into City Centre.
We went visiting a couple of local grass strips in the plane. It was our first time trying the audio in with the HERO 3. It worked great. All music is from the Satellite Radio on board the aircraft. You will also notice there is very little quiet time when flying with the kids;-)
