Nick Nelson and I took the Bonanza flying to complete my night currency which was due at the end of this month. We had no real plan, but, seeing as Nick and I have not flown much lately we made an adventure out of it - 11 airports in the DFW Metroplex in one flight.
KADS - Addison Airport KDTO - Denton Enterprise Airport (+1 Go Around - Terrible procedure on my part) KAFW - Fort Worth Alliance Airport KFTW - Fort Worth Meacham International Airport KFWS - Fort Worth Spinks Airport KGKY - Arlington Municipal Airport KGPM - Grand Prairie Municipal Airport KRBD - Dallas Executive Airport KHQZ - Mesquite Metro Airport (Original fuel stop, pump out of service) KSWI - Sherman Municipal Airport (Fuel Stop) KTKI - McKinney National Airport KADS - Addison Airport
It took us a matter of 2 hours and 38 minutes to complete the whole trip. Quite a leisurely pace for a V-Tail Bonanza. Overall, the plane performed great and I had the opportunity of getting a lot of night landing practice by making the loop around DFW.
