S3flyer Posted July 9, 2011 Report Share Posted July 9, 2011 Florida Panhandle Flyers (or at least Ken ), My daughter is based at Eglin AFB and I've flown into KCEW (Crestview) just north of the base. Coming in on a pretty much straight-line course from north of Dallas allows me to miss the restricted areas and minimizes my time in the active MOAs/Alert areas of Northern Florida. KCEW is great airport and you sometimes see some interesting military aircraft in the pattern. Now then, my daughter lives between the AFB and beach (what 22 year old wouldn't want to live on the beach ) and it takes close to 45 mins for her to pick me up/drop me off. Not a huge deal but KDTS (Destin) would be more convenient for her. This puts me right through lots of military airspace. I'm comfortable with the radio being a former cloud flyer but is there a prefered route through the area? I was thinking of coming into the CEW VOR, which keeps me north of Whiting NAS, the going SSE to KDTS which puts me over KVPS. Thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
