Am planning a flight from San Diego to Colorado Springs in a few days. Given LOP operation and oxygen, I’m considering a direct flight by flying high (ROP would work but I’m not in a hurry). Previous routes have been via Albuquerque and Las Vegas, NM, then along the Front Range, which adds a fuel stop and a couple of hours extra time (rather spend the time with friends).
Appreciate the wisdom on these forums, so I’m looking for your suggestions, cautions, and/or recommendations.
p.s. Weather today shows AIRMET for mountain obscuration, but forecasts look better, and winds are pretty moderate.
