My Flight into Dulles International Airport

Yesterday I had the chance to fly my Cessna Skylane 182 from Louisburg, NC to Dulles International Airport. While this isn’t exactly Wake Forest news, I thought you might be interested in some of the pictures from the trip.

At only 3,500 feet above the ground you get to see stuff on the ground a lot easier than you would on a commercial flight. While there is no inflight meal service, bottled water is always available. Oh yes, and no bathrooms either.

But about 90 minutes after launching at Louisburg airport I was on the ground at Dulles. Sure beats the 4.5 hour drive with traffic.

Taxiing across Dulles airport between the main building and the midfield concourse. You can see the people mover vehicles. I had to wait for a couple of them to pass.

  1. Not to nitpick, but it's the Udvar-Hazy Center that's co-located with Dulles. Air and Space is in DC. Great day for a flight – did you take care to follow the SFRA? 🙂
