SOCAL - 29 Palms to Catalina

Recommended Posts

SOCAL - 29 Palms to Catalina

 

Today we will fly from the Sonoran Desert over the San Bernadino Mountains  then to the Pacific coast before finishing at Catalina

 

Starting from 29 Palms (KTNP) airport the route proceeds west to the first stop at Big Bear (L35), followed a departure over Big Bear Lake and a climb over the mountains of the San Gorgonio Wilderness, then a steep descent and landing at Banning (KBNG).  The route continues following I-10 east to the next stop Palm Springs (KPSP).  From Palm Springs we head southwest to waypoint BALDI and through the pass between the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa Wilderness Areas.  Continuing on we pass the Palomar Observatory before landing at Pauma Valley Air Park (95L).  This is followed by a stop at Oceanside (KOKB) before a long leg to Los Alamitos (KSLI).  The final leg will overfly Long Beach Harbor before turning south to cross the San Pedro Channel to Catalina Island.  After circumnavigating the island we will finish the tour by landing at the Airport in the Sky (KAVX).

Big responsibility and one that will take a bit of getting used to. :Nail Biting:

 

I've got a nice warm feeling in my tummy about this flight. :smile:

Wonderful, gives me excuse to get nice new scenery.

 

I'm thinking a slower twin due to flying over that water.

Brian, when you decide on your plane -- and if you have a moment -- might you please be so kind as to fill in the aircraft information under our multiplayer spreadsheet here. You have a slot already reserved for you. Doing so will save everyone some time. Thanks.

No, you cannot land a Constellation on Big Bear, Banning, several others or Catalina. So leave it at home! :Shame On You:

OK, I'll fill it in, Now I have to really decide what I want to fly....  I like my Shrike but I think I'll need something that is turbo-charged and can handle IFR conditions as well. My Shrike isn't the best for that...

Hope ya'all had a nice Christmas. 

Thanks for the flight plan Jeff! Thoroughly enjoyable!

 

Here's a PIREP for the flight. Could've been better, I need to remember as SOP to start the FSJoin recorder when we are all joined up. All of the recordings between Oceanside ( I called it Riverside :fool: - The race fan in me, too late to change, sources are gone )  thru Long Beach were unusable because of the network glitches we were having at that point.. (Real weird stuff showing!)  

 

Half way through compilation (up to Oceanside) I found that OCam, a screen recorder that I have used until now, used so many resources and full of nag/adware that the recording playback was nearly unusable at some airports. Searched around and found Open Broadcaster Software Studio, open source, 64bit & super light weight on the system! Highly recommended if you like to do screen recordings/streaming, for anything.

 

Have a happy & prosperous New Year!

Today is the first day that I have been able to really focus and "feel" like I'm going to survive.  I hope this improve trend continues.  I feel somewhat human again.

 

Having said that I will look to participate in something in the near future before I head out for three months of "snow birding" to southern California in three weeks.
