Captain J. Gordon

Today, I flew up to Raleigh-Durham and back to Atlanta!! Today’s flights went pretty well. The flights were very quick and easy. RDU has a pretty fun approach once you get to know it. I came in a tad bit high, but I corrected it and touched down smoothly😎👨🏾‍✈️ (and in the touchdown zone) The flight back to Atlanta was very quick and easy. The winds were strong on both flights, but they were more calm on the way back as it was a head or tailwind. I can’t remember 😬 Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful day and as always, I’ll see you in the skies 😁 Counting down until the final FWG episode. 5 more left!!

Thank you 😊 I’ve been wanting to fly to RDU for the longest and today was perfect to do so. I didn’t want to fly for long, so RDU was the perfect destination

Amazing photos!!! Hartsfield Jackson Airport is such a lonely airport in this game. Maybe that is why I like to land and takeoff from there.

Never a dull moment with me!! I give KATL lots of love and attention because it’s my home airport and more than likely the airport I’ll be based at when I become a pilot. What better time to practice navigating the airport than now🤷🏾‍♂️
