Default My pics from OSH 2012

As always, I wish I would have taken more, especially of the people.

https://picasaweb.google.com/1106384...37404/OSH2012#

I especially like this one. Chicago early Sunday morning from 10,500' northbound.



It was great see all my friends and meeting tons of new ones. I can't wait until next year!

Default My First Flight to AirVenture

Leaving Homebase


After a fuel stop in Ohio, I too flew past Chicago and then landed in PWK for "Platinum Fuel"! or at least it must have been because it cost $8.25 Gal small price to pay to visit family



Then we flew this approach....this is what my navigator saw....her name starts with a V too....but better looking and cooks good







I parked here:


and when I was done and ready to go home, this guy told me the runway was all mine!

Default Say, Tony..

The first picture of the flight at 10,500..above Chicago's Class B. prompts me to ask why some controllers don't like for us to overfly their Class B's.

Guys have gone over ATL and other Class B's. Why is that a problem?

Best,

I got a little carried away building a web log of my AirVenture 2012 experience. Approx 140 pictures. AirVenture is always good but this year was one of the better ones thanks to the Van's tribute. Link

Sorry Pierre, missed your question until now. I doubt controllers care if you overfly the Bravo, but if you are overflying the departure route (or arrival route), they might get miffed. In that case case, they have to stop traffic from climbing or descending as usual in an attempt to miss you. This creates a bit more work and could make the job more complex because aircraft are then bunching up when they can normally keep a good flow going. Not to mention required traffic calls! .

If you regularly fly over a particular Bravo, research the standard departures/arrival routes, that way you can avoid the busiest fixes.
