Duluth: Home of Cirrus Design

Recommended Posts

Just a little flight around Duluth MN KDLH....where Cirrus aircraft are built and where I worked ATC for over a decade.

The Cirrus factory...which actually looks close to the real one

Looking NW, the small clearing in the trees is the munitions area for the F16s based on the field

Park point....encompassed in low clouds (the norm in this area)

Town of Gary New Duluth (another place I lived in between 1st and 2nd house) - and a good view of the St. Louis River

Looking west and the river is flowing down from Cloquet MN

I've seen view more than once in the real plane (and this nearly looks real!) - viewing Wisconsin - there's a nice ski hill for winter sports - Mont Du Lac - maybe obscured by the low clouds

St Louis River is quite shallow in places...I've taken my kids to splash around in it

Thanks gents.  It's worth a visit (I'd recommend Summer though) there's plenty of international visitors too.

How's Duluth scenery? Did they get the crazy glide slope going into 27? Lol

Everytime I fly in, I always wonder if your on position in the tower or on radar. Stay safe brotha!

GS seems ok...but it definitely doesn't coincide with the PAPI.  Actually you wouldn't hear me as of Nov 2019.  I transferred to FCM.  I'm also transferring to ZMP at some unknown time (covid and all)

Didnt NCEPT and ERR stuff change to where you only get one shot a year at a transfer instead of quarterly?

I have no idea.  This stuff seems to change daily.  There is no training in the FAA right now....  but it is supposed to open up soon-ish.  Oops and I mean late 2018....time flies when you're working a bunch of GA pilots...
