Great X-Country Web Site
Greetings fellow flyers:
I'm renting a spam can to fly from Provo, UT to Washington State Univ. in
Pullman next month. And they pay all expenses, so why fly Southwest? I
ran into a great X-Country planning web site:
Simon - maybe you can use Airnav to plan a trip from Tampa to Utah if you
get any long X-Country time available. Same invitation is open to any of
you who may want to explore our part of the Rockies.
Airnav gives you about a dozen options between two points. Then it brings
up each airport with all the details needed to punch in coordinates, pick a
runway, gas up, gas prices, etc. Even has some crude maps. I learned not
to land in Jackpot Nevada. Fuel prices likely higher, warning about
mountain peaks near strip, etc. I'm a very low time pilot, so I appreciate
as much info as possible.
Maybe you 1000-hour pilots already know this site, but I was excited to
find it, and use it. (Found it in an article in Plane & Pilot - gag -
bought it because I was bored on a flight to Minneapolis, and had read
every other flying pub).
Have fun dreaming about your next X-Country.
