Added the Vertx Diamond DA62 to the hangar, and wanted a decent cross-country flight to break her in. Decided to pay @Rodger Pettichord a visit at Felts Field. The weather was not ideal in Gig Harbor, broke out of the clouds while en route, then got socked in real good at Felts. I think this aircraft is fantastic, but I have got to learn the G1000 or it's not going to be an aircraft I'll use all too often. It's much easier to dial up a flightplan with the GTN750 in my V-Tail. Sitting at KTIW (Tacoma-Narrows Airport). Wheels up, and man is it cloudy! She's a real beauty inside, and that G1000 can do more than this pilot can throw at it. Some clearing as we climb towards 14,500 feet. Now we're on top of it, and Mt. Rainier is poking her head up through the clouds. This aircraft is really drop dead gorgeous! Those clouds are blanketing the western part of Washington. Hello there moon. It starts to break up as we get east of the Cascades. ORBX really nailed it with the PNW region. Look at those lines...Rodger is so gonna want a ride in this thing. Very short final after breaking through the low clouds. I can't get enough of the art deco styling of this airport. Alright Rodger, Border Patrol said we have Carte Blanche to do whatever we please.
