Heading Home

by on Aug.15, 2011, under Flying

Joyce and I were up ear­ly and after fil­ing our flight plan were off to the air­port. We pre­flight­ed, picked up our box lunch and received our clear­ance. At 7:30 local we start­ed for run­way 17L and lined up behind five Cir­rus. As we pre­pared to leave there was a con­stant stream of Cir­rus tak­ing off into the clear Col­orado skies, what a great sight. We were cleared to take off on our way back to Ohio, with a fuel stop at New Cen­tu­ry Air­port near Kansas City (KIXD). It was VFR with a tail wind, life does­n’t get bet­ter than this. We made our fuel turn in less than thir­ty min­utes, and were on our way to Day­ton. We ate lunch in the air and had to dodge a lit­tle weath­er near Indi­anapo­lis and land­ed in Ohio at 4:30 local time. We had six hours to reflect on our week. We had inter­est­ing fly­ing, social­ized with many old friends and made new ones. We learned a lot, had a great time and vis­it­ed a beau­ti­ful part of the coun­try. Thank you Cir­rus and COPA for our mag­ic car­pet and a chance to belong to a group of great peo­ple, who share our passion.

As a pro­log we had break­fast in Col­orado Springs, and that evening watched the con­clu­sion of the PGA Golf Tour­na­ment, grilled a steak and enjoyed a glass of wine in Ohio (well maybe more than one glass). Try that fly­ing commercial.
