First, I have to say the Cirrus SR20 is a great aircraft!
My father and I have had the Cirrus for just over a year now. It was worth the wait. Between the two of us, we have now flown over 250 hrs to date in the Cirrus and have enjoyed every moment. We have certainly grown to become fans of the Cirrus!
We are now planning on flying our SR20, N229CD, to Alaska via the West Coast & Alaskan Highway. The plan is to leave in just a few weeks. The basic trip itinerary is:
Scottsdale AZ -> Monterey CA
Monterey -> Seattle area
Seattle area -> Calgary
Calgary -> Edmonton
Edmonton -> Alaskan Highway
Glacier Bay National Park ->Anchorage & surrounding areaÂ…
After this we will return back to the lower 48, via the Alaskan Highway and will eventually wrap-up our adventure in Michigan.
My questions are for you:
Has anyone on this forum made the Alaska trip before?
Has anyone made the Alaska trip in a Cirrus?
Any especially great places to land/fuel, eat, sleep or explore?
