Mammoth Yosemite Airport within 30 minutes (CTSW speed) of 4 national parks

  • Yosemite
  • Kings Canyon
  • Sequoia
  • Death Valley

Before we originally decided on Page for the next fly in ( we didn't know at the time it would become the 'annual') we talked about Mammoth.  Alan from Columbia nixed it he was convinced it would end in tragedy due to the serious terrain.

So we settled on Page where to me the terrain is quite serious but the results have been stellar to date.

Doesn't mean that a Mammoth Fly-In couldn't be arranged.  My CFI had always talked about teaching a mountain flying course, but was looking at a private airstrip at Lake Arrowhead.  I would think a MMT get together and mountain flying course would be stellar!

There are different kinds of mountain flying.  High Sierra isn't Idaho in fact tail-draggers at Mammoth can be a bad idea.

Perhaps the course could focus on how to safely cross the Sierra and how to safely tour some of the 4 National Parks?

Nice pictures as always Ed.  I would come up for a fly in there. Not nearly as far as the trip we just completed.

You say Yosemite but the 5th looks like Banner and Ritter over Garnet Lake with the Minarets trailing off to the left and the 6th looks like Tom from the north. None of those are in the park.

They're nice pictures anyway, despite the mislabeling :-)

It was a Yosemite Trip with the climb-out initially east to Mt Tom and the return over Donahue Pass.  I have no respect for park boundaries and often call adjacent areas Yosemite as well.

I went back and added labels.
