Approach into Yellowstone Airport

My approach into Yellowstone Airport (KWYS) after departing from Minneapolis (KMSP) on the Casual Server. That’s the B737-700 about midday.

Thanks for choosing Montana! We don’t have many people that fly here in IF and when we do it’s awesome. Next time you should try to flying into a different Montana airport, there is a lot you haven’t seen.

Just made a quick hop from KSLC to KBZN. Great views on the way in. One of my best landings yet, too. Thanks for the recommendation.

Oh man. Ohhhhhh man.

Montana has a huge GA community, so naturally I see a lot of what they do. Since Montana has some pretty tall mountains, in GA aircraft you are going to have to follow the valleys when traveling between cities, which commonly have highways which make them easier to follow.
Here is a brief pic of some of the major inter-city highways in Montana

The ones I suggest are KMSO-KGPI, KMSO-KGEG, KMSO-KBTM, KGPI-KGTF, KBZN-KHLN, and KBTM to KHLN. Go to like google maps or something and look for those highways, and those will guide you very well.

Thank you sir! I will definitely check these out. I just got Grade 4 (woot!) and need to start building time (as well as keeping up landings), and I love some low and slow GA.
