Flying to the COPA Migration 9

by on Aug.15, 2011, under Flying

On Monday we flew to Colorado Springs after changing our flight plan to fly north around thunderstorms to Fort Dodge, Iowa. We refueled then continued on to KCOS. We packed a lunch to shorten our ground time but battled headwinds the whole way. We spent eight hours in the air and were happy to see the Rockies looming to the west. We arrived at 2:30 local time, due to the time change, and couldn’t believe the number of Cirrus on the ramp. More than twenty had come for the pre-migration courses or to tour in the area. We went to the Cheyenne Mountain Resort after tying down and immediately started meeting COPA people. After cocktails and dinner we hit the sack having had a long day of flying.
