p3d v4 Yuck: Murky Weather PWT to Skagit!

Recommended Posts

First flight in my new Bonanza.  I've got no GPS, I'm flying the needles and it's mostly IMC on a short hop from Bremerton Natl PWT to Skagit KBVS in the Pacific NW.

My routing was a radar vector onto V165 to ISLND, then from there I shot the NDB Ry 11 at KBVS with a circle to land to Ry 4.  The whole thing was tricky due to a monster ssw wind (it was lovely aloft - had a ground speed of 202!!)...  I had a crosswind for the entirety of the non precision approach.

Even without GPS the aircraft is well-equipped for IFR with dual nav/comm, ADF and DME.

Headed towards Penn Cove CVV the weather is pretty murky

A pretty wide circle to land Ry 4 (not within standards but my first landing in a crosswind!)
