For those of you who have not flown recently, this system (IFR) is a pleasure to fly in. My wife and I just came back from a vacation to Orlando and I cannot in recent memory think of a time when the airways were less crowded.
At Kissimmee (within the “veil” of Orlando Int.) we were one of three airplanes at Ranger aviation. Before the lifting of restrictions no flight training was going on so I did not have to do the usual “dodging of the Katana’s” with dazed students and stressed instructors.
I even had a nice tail wind (that never happens) that let my big spam can (Cessna 210) get up to 171 knots groundspeed. From my perspective, its a great time to fly. Hope it lasts.
Ps - When I left Charleston Executive (JZI) on friday, security was lax…, when I came back today, all the gates were locked and attended. What’s up with that? Any ideas? The attendents were clueless about the increased security and just happy to have something to do.
