Welcome to the EYES OF TEXAS in VFR tour of Texas.
We will be flying this tour in a VISUAL VFR sense,
using landmarks, rivers, highways, and VORs
to complete the trip slowly at about 110 kts.
If all you want to do is “follow the magenta line”,
then this tour is NOT for you!
And I know how to make it where you won’t. I am not
going to publish the instructions (route) before we are actually
preparing to take off at the departure airport.
And it will NOT be a flight plan that you may just load into the sim,
It will contain a set of instructions and VOR freq/courses that we will follow.
I don’t want anyone to feel intimated that they don’t know how to fly the instructions.
It will be possible to simply follow along and we can help you with the nav radios
(or you can fly it later, if you miss one and know how to do it).
But flying Texas ALONE is just NOT the same as flying with the GROUP.
Have I roused your curiosity? What will you see you ask? The plan is to
SEE IT ALL. If it is in Texas, and its good to look at in a plane,
we will fly over it, and do the trip sequentially as we go.
Our friend FOOT is doing this for the World. Well, I plan to do it for TEXAS!
For ALL OF TEXAS!
Don’t bother bringing your JETS, TWINS, TURBOs, or anything else
without a working NAV radio. If you turn OFF your Little Nav Map and
just use a static VFR map such as those found at www.skyvector.com,
the immersion factor will be better. And you will need to use your EYES and your brains to keep on track.
Come on YA’LL, Let’s really SEE ALL of T E X A S ! ! !
