Just like I promised, here is the plan for my first cross country with Dana. My flight will consist of Flying from Westosha in Wilmot, Wisconsin, west to Monroe Airport in Monroe , then North to Watertown Airport in Watertown, then back south to good ‘ol Westosha. The trip will be about 155 nautical miles (178 regular miles) and should take a little bit under two hours. I tried a sample flight plan with the winds coming from the Northwest at 28 knots and got an average ground speed of 93 knots. With those winds, the trip should take 1 hour and 42 minutes. Saturday morning though, all those numbers will change (due to the winds) so I need to make sure to get up extra early to plan out my navigation log based on the winds. Like usual, I’ll post my lesson shortly after.
