Flying the Phoenix Class Bravo “Circuit”

After returning from the “mission”

The weekend after I was officially signed off to fly Cirrus SR-22’s and SR-20’s, Evan and I flew the Phoenix Class Bravo  “Circuit,” meaning that we flew touch-and-goes at all of the towered airports under the class bravo airspace except for Sky Harbor. We took off in Evan’s Cherokee Six based out of Falcon Field and did a full stop at Scottsdale Airpark, switched to my rental SR-22 and flew a clockwise pattern around the valley performing touch-and-goes at Falcon Field, Williams Gateway (man those runways are HUGE), Chandler, Goodyear, Glendale, Deer Valley, and finally ending back up at Scottsdale. Clocked in 1.8 hours on the Hobbs. Then we took Evan’s plane back to Falcon. It was a very technically challenging flight. Next time we do it in Evan’s plane. I recommed all pilots in the area perform this yearly. GREAT FUN!!!
