Flying to Martha's Vineyard
In the Spring of 2013, I got the chance to fly with my friend Andrew Blanchard. He was a student at Purdue University and at the time was well on his way to his instrument rating and was home for the summer. We decided to take a quick trip to Martha's Vineyard for lunch and I particularly like that trip because it's beautiful and it's just enough miles to qualify as a cross-country. We also agreed to share cockpit duties, with Andrew handling the radios and some G1000 functionality. He has a lot more experience than I do, so it was a chance to learn from him. As you'll hear in his radio-work, he's very comfortable with it and I enjoying listening to his calls. We had a tough time raising Providence Approach about half way through the flight but we eventually got them and stayed with them until we were handed off to Cape Approach for the trip across the Bay into MVY. We also swung fairly wide to the east of the airport and so this particular approach into 24 was lower and flatter than I usually do. But it was smooth and cool and all in all a lot of fun. There are three HD cameras and ATC audio on this video. Enjoy!
