Turbulent Tuesday - Mount Rainier Tours
Welcome pilots to our 2nd new weekly Free Flight Server event where anything goes. Well almost anything.
This week’s Turbulent Tuesday event is a “Follow The Leader” tour through the Seattle region around Mount Rainier. 2 rounds are scheduled for those interested in a fun relaxed guided tour around the Pacific Northwest’s iconic and tallest mountain. Light aircraft should be used as speeds will be under 250 Knots.
We begin at KRNT Renton Muni, fly low due east through the foothills. Near Ranger Creek (21W) we then begin winding south keeping Mt. Rainier (always) on our right until reaching the area near Packwood (55S). Then we turn a bit west while keeping Mt. Rainier on our right making our way to a northerly heading towards our final destination of 1S0 Pierce County Thun. Fld. Lots of marked parking there.
In addition to the 2 scheduled rounds (see this events “About” section below for round times) there will be 2 other randomly timed tours in much faster aircraft flying more recklessly. Just find pilot D1ZY (DIsrael@FDS) and follow. Find, fly, follow, fast and low!
There will be some white knuckles.
