Bela took advantage of the daily rate instructional program to complete a 6.8 hour cross country over the entire day and night.  We flew from Long Beach to Santa Ynez (IZA) for our first stop.  Our second stop was Oceano County (L52) where we had lunch.  It was then off for Monterey for a top of at the Jet center before our night flight back.   Throughout the day we were able to introduce and practice multiple navigation techniques and styles varying from basic dead reckoning all the way through advanced computer based flight planning.   Each leg was tailored to maximize the use of certain techniques to provide for a well rounded learning experience.

It is a beautiful day for a long cross country to Monterey!

Here we are at Santa Ynez for a quick break and to complete another leg of flight planning.
