Continuing on our journey across the southwest, Matt and I face some challenges in Cedar City, Utah. The winds are high (30 knots) and the Density altitude is high (8200 feet).

Working as a team, we put together a solid plan to takeoff out of the area and head toward Zion National Park, on our way to Santa Fe.

This long flight would really test our endurance as pilots. It’s easier when you have two pilots that can share the duties throughout the day. Cuts down on the fatigue. Overall, it was a really enjoyable and beautiful flight.

Right along and see how pilots do what they do and roll with the punches. We weren’t even supposed to go to Cedar City, as we diverted here for fuel reasons. It all worked out and we ended up enjoying our lunch and ride in the funny crew car.

Matt has recently been going through all his flight training. At the time of this video he hadn’t quite gotten his Commercial Rating, but had just finished his instrument rating. He was already flying like a professional and conducted himself very well. He’s well on his way in the aviation community, and runs a company called Winged Aviation that helps Veterans get into aviation.

Let me know if you have any questions about the flight.

I know that my normal “travelling to Zion” videos aren’t the most interesting. Basically it’s just me trying desperately to make flying commercial look exciting. Spoiler alert: it’s not! So this year I decided to spice up my normal Day 1 video by fling myself to Zion!

I have been a pilot for a little over nine years, and it’s always been a dream of mine to fly myself out to Zion. It’s never really been a possibility though because all of the rental planes available were too slow. However this year I was able to join a group owning a Cessna 210 which is far faster and just more capable of such a trip.

I had originally hoped to make the entire trip in one day, which would be a long day, but it would be possible. However, a large weather system had been hovering over the desert southwest bringing low clouds and freezing temps. I’m an instrument rated pilot, so flying through the clouds isn’t an issue. The ice that would have accumulated in those clouds however, was an issue. So I made the safe call to land in Kansas and let the system pass as it was predicted to do.

This is the video of that flight. I might could have made it all the way to Zion, but this was the safest option. I hope you enjoy!!
