Our popular Southwest Adventure flights have been modified for 2017, and are now a four-day, 20-hour "Mountain" Adventure in the Cessna Corvalis TTx. This has always been one of IFRwest's top flights, since it combines extensive IFR training with some incredible scenery. Now, with these flights being flown in our TTx with Garmin G2000 flight deck, pilots will be able to experience the beautiful Southwest in a high-performance, high-altitude, FIKI-equipped airplane.
This trip starts out of Medford, Oregon with a climb over the Cascade Range into Reno and Salt Lake City before tracking east into the high country of the Rockies, westward over the Grand Canyon and through the LA Basin before heading up the California Coast back to Medford. Some of the highlights include the gorgeous Lake Tahoe/Reno area, busy Class B airspace, landings at the Colorado Ski Country destinations of Aspen and Telluride, the Grand Canyon and scenic Sedona, AZ, the busy “meat-grinder” airspace of the LA Basin and finally the scenic California, Oregon coastline.
After an orientation in Medford with instructor Field Morey, pilots will experience the high-altitude capability of the TTx on day one. A special Mountain High oxygen system provides comfort up to FL250 en route to shooting approaches at Lake Tahoe and Reno before heading east for our overnight in Salt Lake City. Day two features a challenging approach and landing in Aspen, Colorado before an after lunch leg to Telluride, the highest commercial airport in North America. This incredible day ends with an overnight in Sedona, Arizona after a "carrier landing" at KSEZ after watching the Grand Canyon slide by underneath the wings of the TTx.
Day three is where pilots will get in some great IFR training with emphasis on communicating in the busy Class Bravo airspace in the Los Angeles basin before enjoying lunch at the celebrated Waypoint Café in Camarillo, California. The day ends with the TTx parked steps away from the hotel in Santa MAria, California. A scenic bay tour of the San Francisco skyline and the coastal region of Northern California completes your Adventure on day four before a mid-day arrival back in Medford.
The Southwest Mountain TTx Adventure is available year round, and costs $7,600 for one pilot, or two pilots can share expenses for $4,180 each.
