Done #3 over a dozen times and it gets my heart pumping every. single. time.

I say a quick prayer before starting the approach/ departure into and out Aspen and Telluride. Lol

Dme arcs aren’t hard in a jet. The auto pilot does everything for ya. Thank goodness! With out that, it’s a handful. Turn 10. Twist 10 is all you have to do. Situational awareness and staying well ahead of the plane is critical.

@Erj145… MaxSez: Great observation! There’s nothing in this world more rewarding for an aviator then a successful difficult precision approach. Even with the autopilot doing the shaking & baking that visual final in the groove give you a warm & fuzzy…
