Nice video.  We should all take more non commander pilots for a ride and show off the commanders capabilities.  Every time I do,it is a lot of fun.

General Discussion / Cirrus SR22 Pilot In A 690B First Flight

Thought would post a fun flight with a friend of mine. He is a Cirrus SR22 pilot Marc Epner. He was instrumental when in 2018 I reached out to him because he ran a local flight club here in Chicago (Leading Edge). He is one of those great folks you meet in Aviation that love to share their experience and want to see others get in to aviation. Though I would share a fun flight I took him on.


His instrument overlay was not configured properly so it seem like we were close to VNE but that is showing the ground speed and not the indicated speed. Though that other Commander pilots would enjoy the video. I came out of a Malibu as my first airplane and upgraded to a 690B and I take the performance for granted now but it's fun to share the joy with others.

Great information, Guys.  Thank you.  I am always looking for reasonable FBOs, weighed against where I have to be.  I appreciate the inputs here!  I guess I need to look into CAA...

There are a couple of things to take into account in regard to Bermuda Dunes.

First, the overnight fees are significantly lower at Bermuda Dunes than Ross Aviation at Thermal, so that is a savings. Then, the Titan fuel card brings the fuel price down significantly, although it is still about a dollar per gallon more than Thermal (with CAA).

So then I tanker quite a bit in, and in the end it only costs me slightly more than Thermal. However, I do stay several days at a time.

Bermuda Dunes is nice and convenient but the pricing is a bit hard for me to justify....Probably because itís so much more than years past.
Being a private owned airport, I suppose the higher fees are to be expected.

Nice people and cars are on site which is great. TRM is usually less expensive enough to justify the longer drive.
Maybe we do  a turbo commander fly-in and negotiate a big discount!
