    VATSTAR ACHIEVES NEW HEIGHTS!
    KCYS --> KEGE (VFR or IFR)
    May 20th, 2018 -- 1800z-2100z

    Join VATSTAR as we get high in Denver, in celebration of our 800th awarded VATSIM Pilot Rating (which we expect to achieve right around the middle of May)! We'll depart from Cheyenne, Wyoming (KCYS / Jerry Olson Field) and travel over the Rocky Mountains to Gypsum, Colorado (KEGE / Eagle County Regional).

    You may want to leave your Skyhawks at home, but your Mooneys, Beechcrafts, and Caravans should all be fine. However, bring your oxygen masks, as we'll be joining the Three Mile High club while enroute! Minimum safe altitudes for VFR top 13,000 feet in spots, and MEAs for the recommended IFR route sit nicely at 16,000 (yes, that's 20 feet per every rating we'll have awarded)! Then, the descent into Eagle County is a nice controlled plummet to a field elevation of 6,547 feet. This flight will certainly showcase the many challenges of mountain flying! Are you UP to the task? We'll find out on May 20th at 1800z!
