Apprehensive passengers who have stomachs full of Olive Garden. 40 pounds short of max gross with density altitude over 4000 ft. All the mean while I got in some good pilotage work on my way back from Idaho today. I filed IFR over to COE because I thought I would have a chance to get some good actual (flying in the clouds). Nope. The elusive clouds burnt off by 1300 which definitely would not have happened if I just wanted to go for a motorcycle ride or any other summer activity not requiring clouds.
Anyways, it was a good day flying 5.2 hours having to deal with passengers and all the joys they bring. I love the fact that I flew for 5.2 and did not have to fill up. I landed with 45 minutes of fuel which means the 206 can outlast almost every human bladder. Bottom line, I made myself a better pilotage/dead reckoning pilot today. I am getting really good at making use of the "Pilot Isolate" button.
