Riverside to Santa Paula -3/21 15:00

Mon Mar 09, 2009 12:02 pm

I've been working on a new trip for the flying club. Time to be determined, but probably a Friday night or saturday. I'm thinking for aircraft we can go with BE-18s and DC-3s (and maybe a Connie for JB...) The route I've worked up is about 100 miles and takes you really close to the LA Bravo so Flight following might be in line, but the course im looking at keeps you outside of the bravo at all times.

Depart Riverside to the West to overfly Chino at 3,000

Image

Then we proceed over Mt. San Antonio College (My college) where we begin a descent to 2,000 to keep us below the Bravo airspace.

Image

After Mt SAC we fly toward Parker Center in LA and then onwards to the Coliseum. Here we need to stay at 2,000 or below or we run the risk of gettng in the way of the charted visual approaches into LAX.

Image
After the fun of dodging the Big Jets, we can proceed north of SMO and start a climb up to 4,500 to remain under the Bravo we continue on to Pacific Palisades and up the coast to Point Dume. Where we take a roughly 300 Heading towards CMA.

Image

Passing CMA we descend to 2,000 over there Class D airspace to enter the pattern at SZP.

So, who would be intrested?

Sounds fun, only comment is first leg at 3000 over CNO puts you in the ONT C, so we would have to be talking during that part.

Sounds like fun indeed. Flew a similar one some months ago, from F07 to OXR with flight following from KS on a busy CTR, squeezing underneath and around all the B,C and D's.

Good to see this kicking back up... been craving for one of these recently, to be honest.

I don't have a DC-3 or a Be-18 that I really care to fly. What is the approx cruise speed of either so I can fly something comparable?
