The Annual Extra 300L Migration

Each year I fly the Extra 300L between its summer base at Boeing Field (KBFI) in Seattle and its winter home at Boulder City, NV (KBVU).


The usual route takes me from KBFI across the Cascade Mountains for fuel stops at Bend, OR (KBDN) and Yerington, NV (O43), before the last leg to KBVU. Those three legs total about 870 nm, and at a cruise speed of 160 KTAS, require 5.5 to 6.0 hours of flying time.


Here’s a highlight video from the first leg (KBFI-KBDN) in late September.

To see scenes from the entire route, watch this video from the same flight in September 2017.
