Coast-to-Coast Leg #5: Aspen to Jackson Hole

Recommended Posts

Aspen is a beautiful place, but we weren't able to stay long as we needed to head out on the next leg of our trip. This next flight we go from beautiful Aspen, Colorado to incredible Jackson Hole, Wyoming in the Bonanza. The Bonaza we were flying came equipped with the most recent G36 modifications, as well as the new G1000 improvement mod, so I was looking forward to testing this bird out. Here we go!

Climbing out of Aspen in a single-engine GA plane is incredibly challenging, but eventually we made it over the mountains

Leg #5 is complete, welcome to Jackson Hole!


Besides the brutal climb out of Aspen, the Bonanza was a lot of fun to fly. It will definitely be a go-to plane for me going forward. Only two legs left! Thanks for viewing!

Great flight! It's amazing to think that when we first started flying, the first coast to coast flight was a record. Now it just seems routine. However, the view and adventure is far from routine! :pilot:

Great set of shots! :D


I agree. And Jackson Hole has always been one of my favorite ski resorts. So I "fly" there often myself.


As to those mountain climb outs, I've done several with a Maule.:eek::eek: Now if I'm flying a single in the mountains it has to at lest be a Pilatus or stronger. ;)

Being an old chopper guy I usually fly low and slow.
