Captain J. Gordon

Today, I flew a route recommended by @KSS I flew from Atlanta to Ontario, California. I have to say, this is one of my best flights. The flight was extremely smooth during ALL aspects. Even though we had wind of up to 105kts, the plane barely moved. The funny thing is that the plane only started shaking when the winds were at about 80-90kts ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ The landing was greased of course ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿพโ€โœˆ๏ธ and I have no complaints!! I hope you all had/have a great flying day as well. See you in the skies!!

I feel like Palm Springs is underappreciated. It has great views.

Thatโ€™s due to the fact that such wind changes mostly occur at the edges of weather systems like the Jetstream or others, which is often causing turbulences :)

California and the San Bernardino and surrounding Mountains look absolutely stunning! Thanks for sharing your experience!
