Hey fam!! Today, I flew from Atlanta to Seattle, WA. This was a pretty cool flight due to the heavy load that we had. We took off with a 77% load factor and landed with a load factor of a little more than 50% 🤭 Despite our heavy load, the “first officer” managed to grease the 900er into Seattle this afternoon!! It was a pretty cool flight and it was probably the best cross country flight I’ve had so far. Anyway, I hope you all had as great of a day as I did, and I look forward to seeing you all in the skies!!

  1. LiveFlight tracking

  1. Preparing for departure at gate A12

  1. Rotating off of runway 26L with our flaps at 15° and our speed slowly increasing. What a nice takeoff carried out by the “first officer”!!

  1. Cruising over the Mississippi River crossing into the state of Arkansas

  1. Flying south of Idaho Falls looking towards the state of Utah!! If you look far enough, you’d be looking at the great salt lake 😮

  1. I have to admit that the Northwest has some of my favorite views of scenery 🤩 I HAVE to fly this route in real life one day!! BTW, you’re looking at the Payette National Forest located near Cascade, Idaho

  1. Fast forward to final approach on Seattle’s runway 16R

  1. A nice, smooth touch down into Seattle carried out by our “First Officer”

  1. Letting the plane take a break at gate A4

  1. Here’s the approach into Seattle this afternoon. Left downwind onto runway 16R

@Aviatorwyatt lol. I actually landed just after you and another pilot took off for San Francisco!! At least I think that was you 😬

@Infiniteflight2 Thank you!! Man, the scenery during the whole flight was awesome, but there’s something about the Northwest that is just SO much better 🤩

Jeez 😬 You must’ve had a pretty strong headwind on the way to LAX. Usually, CUN-LAX/LAX-CUN takes around 4 hours…

Yeah that was me
