A Journal, with Pictures

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.
