Nasa Mission to Boeing
So, guys, I’m gonna let you in on a secret. Once you reach TL3, you get recruited to the prestigious NASA Virtual™️, so I had to do my first flight from Portland to Boeing Field. Without further ado, here is my first mission, in a NASA 747SOFIA.
Cruising at 19,000ft. Doing some lovely early-morning tELeSCopiNG.
As it becomes early morning, we descend into Seattle and watch the narrow-bodies struggle to land with their 35kt crosswind.
In all seriousness, I’m so happy to have become TL3 and I also want to say thank you to the IFATC Controllers that I was communicating with, you guys are doing god’s work.

Seattle Approach: @tomthetank
But something that I really want to share is that I now get access to the requirements to get TL3. If you want to know what they are, check this Google Doc.
Thank you for reading and happy landings! 👋
