This isn’t Florida anymore!! Flying the mountain ravines out West.

Jason and Hunter take advantage of a beautiful day and fly a “not so direct” course from Scottsdale AZ to Sedona AZ. They prepare for rising terrain, density altitude, thermals, lowered engine performance, limited landing options and turn around points, all of which are discussed in this video. In Florida we think of heavy rain clouds for IFR, but out in this area of Arizona IFR can be anything from dust clouds to heavy wildfire smoke; Jason and Hunter discuss many factors that affect those flying in the mountains.
