The view: Mt. Timpanogos, Utah. East side.
The pilot: Gavin Kerby
The airplane: 2007 Cirrus SR22 Turbo Normalized
The mission: Pilot currency and proficiency; get the airplane out of the hangar and into the sky weekly mission. And are you kidding me, who wouldn’t want to fly on a day like this in a place like this? :)
The memory: It’s a favorite Utah location. For sure one of the best looking mountains in the whole state. Sundance ski resort is located here, and so is Robert Redford’s residence. It’s also a popular, long all-day hike to the summit in the summer. Flying here never gets old. I’ve been to this area many times. It’s 30nm on a course of 130 degrees from SLC, where the airplane is based. It’s within view of and 10 nm SW of the Heber, UT airport (36U). It’s 15 nm south of Park City, UT.
