WASHINGTON REAGAN to KEY WEST
So hello people, as I hope you know, one of the featured airports today, and the busiest airport of the day is Key West, Florida. Key West has destinations in the US to major US Cities, like Atlanta for Delta, and Washington DC, Philadelphia and Boston among others for American. I was in Washington DC (DCA) for my career mode at @AmericanVirtual so I wanted to fly down to Key West this morning. I flew this route just last week too so I knew the views would be great, and they were. It’s hard to find good scenery on the East Coast of the United States but I think I found some good scenery by using skyvector.com to make a flight plan (if you want it, just comment and I can give it to you). I wanted to fly out at sunrise, so I woke up at 5:45 AM, flew the River Departure and then went to bed until 8AM again. I used the E175 just like real life, and flight time was 2 hours and 51 minutes because the 175 is slow, my routing was a little longer and it was REALLY busy in Key West, so big props to the controllers because spacing was a big challenge.
