Flying a simulated aircraft is exciting, and has never been more interesting or
realistic than it is now, due to fantastic computers and programs.

4 legs.   4 aircraft.

This flight is scenic and offers difficult terrain, challenging airports.
Telluride is in a deep valley with gusty winds, even on nice days.
Check your aircraft specs for high altitude and weights.
Be careful going into and getting out of valleys.
