A Gusty Vegas Departure

Recommended Posts

Tonite I did a short flight on Pilot Edge... so I didn't have time to take a lot of shots.  I departed 8L at KLAS with an almost direct 20 kt crosswind...  plenty of rudder authority for the falcon but it was gusty so difficult to keep total centerline.  I hand flew the climbout and engaged the AP around FL180.  Then did a visual into KTNP.  I'm pretty impressed with the PBR on this aircraft.  The beacon at TNP did illuminate the fuselage (note the top) and you can see some ambient lights sparkling off the fuselage.  I think nighttime looks so much better.  Even though I only climbed to FL240, with the decent quartering tailwind I was up to 520 knots over the ground (though I did pull it back to keep the engines healthy)

Nice, I like night flights and the glow of the instruments!

Great looking night set! Am looking forward to seeing some Vegas departures after FlyTampa releases their KLAS scenery.
