VA PA Tour

 

Starting from Charlottesville (KCHO), the tour crosses the southern section of Shenendoah National Park and follows the meandering south branch of the Shenendoah river north along side Massanuten Mountain to Front Royal Virginia (KFRR).  The route proceeds to cross back over the Blue Ridge for a touch and go at Upperville (2VG2) before heading north to cross the Potomac at historic Harpers Ferry. After overflying the Antietam Battlefield we proceed to Potomac Airpark (W35) followed by a long leg to University Park at State College (KUNV).    The next stop is William T Piper Memorial Airport (KLHV) in Lock Haven, followed by a landing at Williamsport Regional (KIPT), then another long leg across the Susquehanna to Carl Spaatz Field  (KRDG) in Reading.  The final leg will take us down the Schuylkill river to Philadelphia where we will turn north  for the final landing at Philadelphia Northeast Airport.

 

The route is 380nm long and an aircraft capable of 180knts is recommended.  I will be flying the Shrike Commander  but as always you are free to fly what you like.

Great route this week. We get a chance to tip our cap to William Piper at Lock Haven. And then we drop by the world famous Mid-Atlantic Aviation Museum at Reading!

For the Shrike pilots, I hope you have my autopilot fixes installed.

Is this GTN related Bert? If not, you have my email, if you would be so kind. :smile: Just bought it 30 minutes ago. Lovely sounds.

Not too many pics during last weeks run. Was too afraid to hit the shutter button, or, for that matter, "ANY" button, on anything. The sim/computer did not behave at all! One of the worst sessions ever. It prompted a marathon 35 hour programming session to make a utility, once mentioned in the past, that I and maybe others, desperately need due to a low/mid powered system and not able to handle a crowded MP session. An initial preview is on the MP spreadsheet.

Most of the group back taxiing at Potomac - Berkely Springs (W35). Either Bert or Gunter is rolling out. Hard to see, but notice that radio tower at the far end, just off the runway. Nice place to put it! It just may be a little closer than depicted in real life.. HMM.

Oh sooo purdy. Back taxiing at KRDG for a One-Three departure. We stayed a little too long at the museum! LOL - We changed the time for some, so called :db: , eye candy.
