  1. Loved the article in AOPA Training. As a flat lander based at 06C just west of ORD I can’t wait to do your trip in reverse. I am finishing up my instrument training and have done the ILS and RNAV approaches at ARR many times in the last 12 months!

    Here are pictures of some of our recent trips

    Hoping to get out to New England and Maryland this fall in a couple of weeks.

    1. Thank you, Angus for your kind words about my column, and congrats on making such good use of your piloting skills. I loved your photos! Let me know when you knock off your instrument rating. And when you do that “reverse trip” to Arizona, drop me a line and we’ll meet for lunch. Again, thanks for writing!
