HOPE, Patchy and I as we flew over the #mountains of NY and Vermont.
The last leg of her journey would prove the most treacherous for us all.
Having watched the aviation forecasts closely for the 24 hours preceding our flight, I knew this would be the most challenging part of our journey. Forecasts were calling for low overcast, and we would have to find a #safe #way through it. Worst cast I thought, is we would have to turn back and Hope would have to foster with me at home for a few days until weather improved.
You see, our path to Vermont from New York was ripe with mountain ranges - the closer to Rutland we flew, the greater the risk. With 3,500' overcast ceilings and mountain peaks just over 3,000', a good portion of my flight planning would be spent charting a safe path for us all. There would be minimal vertical allowance for error.
In normal conditions with clear skies or high ceilings this would not be an issue; today however it would. Poor planning or decision making, and we could fly right into the side of a mountain.
As it was, once we were in the moutain ranges, there were few options if we had any problems - putting the aircraft down safely would be a challenge.
Luckily, the only issues we encountered were turbulence from being trapped under the cloud decks, and so close to the mountain tops - turbluent to the point we had to slow our #airplane down to it's VA speeds, to prevent damage to the airframe.
We would ride like this for the better part of an hour - slowly bumping our way along, as the clouds grew darker and the mountains grew taller. From the forecasts and aviation charts, I had a mental picture of what we would face; fortunatley for my pawsengers we would make it through.
