I'm conducting VFR/IFR mountain and bad weather challenge training from November 27-December 14th in the United States. The minimum number of participants is 6 for this trip. The geographic range will be from Denver Colorado to the PNW up in Washington and Oregon hooking down into California as far south as San Diego County. For the folks in Colorado and the Mountain West as well as Washington and Oregon, this could be a bad weather IFR challenge type of trip depending on luck and storm forecast. For the Bay Area and Central Valley and Southern CA folks, this can be anything from IFR challenge or VFR flying at the edges of your capabilities type of training.
If you are fortunate to end up with bad weather, you will learn to operate your equipment safely at the edges of its envelope so you know where the edges are and how to avoid them, and to maximize your mission capability. VFR or IFR, you will be challenged like you have never been challenged before.

A little bit of mixed icing with some runback ^^^
Some interesting runways ^^^
And some interesting extraterrestrial proving grounds.
This sounds like an amazing and very solid training opportunity.... Unfortunately i cannot plan with short notice, so if you are planning a similar trip in Q1/18, i am game.
I've always wanted to take a mountain flying course, but I don't see any way I could get away for two weeks... Not with my present situation at work anyway.
That would be quite an adventure though, and I'm envious of those that get to partake.
I just left you a VM.
Not sure I can pull it off, but I'd like to talk further with you.
Is there a training option for surviving winter weather in a non-FIKI plane?
Order a G6?
Tom, didn't I end up with one of the last delivered G5's?
Alex, this looks amazing and I wish I could do this with you.
To anyone considering it, Alex is the champ at finding your limits! I am jealous of anyone that gets to do with with him!
around KSTS, Santa Rosa, on this trip?
