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.
