NYC Skyline Night flight with Timmy

midtown-nyc-nightUncle Tim is a photographer so there are bound to be some good pictures. He was also a CH-46 Crew Chef during the Vietnam War, so I don’t have to worry about him on our flights. A few bumps aren’t going to bother this guy that’s for sure.

Flight details:

Our former flight club president sent us the details of his method of flying from Morristown Airport KMMU to the Hudson River via the busy New York class bravo airspace. At first I was a little reluctant to give it a try but after flying around the south side of the surface vale of Newark Airport’s airspace and getting a little to close to more than a few very large aircraft I decided to give it a try. We departed Morristown Airport (KMMU) and contacted Newark Tower (127.85). We received a clearance into the class bravo airspace (@ 1,500) and were cleared overhead the runway 4 numbers at Newark Airport.



Once over the Hudson River we were handed off to La Guardia Tower (126.05). I requested a clearance to fly north on the Hudson, across Central Park, down the East River, and back up the Hudson. From there we were handed off to NY approach and then on to Westchester County (KHPN) for dinner. After dinner we flew direct to Morristown.

You just have to do this.

Total tac time 1.4 round trip.
