Chris Holmes Leg flown as VFR leg with A2A Piper Cherokee. Flying through the valley at 3500 feet. Screenshots posted to the forum page with route followed and proof of flying through mountains/valley to destination as I use VFRFlight software to pinpoint custom waypoints. Flight as per flight briefing. Loaded my plane full of fuel to ensure no refueling stop was needed. Not sure why ACARS recorded 2 landing rates. Maybe I had a bounce. Pictures up on the Forum. Lovely scenery through the mountains
Ian Harrison Nice flight, Chris, you took the best route. Yes, you bounced on landing.
Chris Holmes At least it was only a Piper and the last landing was within limits. I liked this flight
