Sutton on Rogue to Brookings, OR

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

We're back to your regularly scheduled program with a gorgeous flight from Sutton on Rogue (0OR8 new from Orbx), a private strip with lovely surrounds, to the far southwest corner of Oregon at Brookings (KBOK).  Bullfrogsim has done a stunning freeware rendition I hope everyone will pick up: https://flightsim.to/file/73283/kbok-brookings-state-airport

Drone view reveals all - Sutton is a 2500 x 75 ft grass strip situated just north of Medford Rogue Valley (nearest large airport KMFR)

Basically one direction for takeoffs and one for landing with the grading...

Initially I planned 6500 for cruise but I was getting tossed around like a rag doll.  Climbed to 8500 and the ride was almost smooth....

The flight is only around 70 miles or so... we'll begin descent

One can drive the Pacific Coast Highway (hwy 101) for beautiful views of the ragged cliffs and rock outcroppings along the shoreline

A little high and hot as usual

But there's plenty of runway (2901 x 60 ft)...  and we've parked and are ready to grab that 100 dollar hamburger!

(Some bonus "drone" views of the field...  airport is also served by an RNAV approach with circling mins)

Brookings, OR, population near seven thousand, is a lovely place on the Oregon coast!  I hope you all can visit!
