North Palm Beach to Fort Myers

Recommended Posts

Just a fun little 80 mile trip from Atlantic Ocean to Gulf of Mexico.  Nearing sunset, and you'll see I was forced down by clouds (marine layer?  Does Florida get those?) while coming into the pattern at RSW.  Departure airport F45 is available as a freeware scenery - pretty well done!

Of course another shameless plug for our VL3 mod - with a 10 kt tailwind and smooth air I nearly hit 200 knots over the ground.

I'm able to stay 1000 ft above and 2000 ft away from

I decide to start maneuvering for descent below the newly formed layer

A low pattern (maybe SFVR next time?)

I'll spend the night here and see where tomorrow takes me!
