since I started flying more I try to always find a way to Make life easier with the plane. If we can shorten a trip and avoid some serious hassle, why not fly. I usually cal calculate that just based on time and Uber distance to destination from field. Some trips are 1.5-2 hour car vs 30 min flight. Easy swish to convince wife to hop in the 182. Trip to the beach 3-4 hour drive, 1 hour less flight. Easy. My sister in DC- easy visit. (Haven’t don’t yet though) My sister in law lives in NYC upper east side. My wife’s friends have kidded around that I can just fly my wife to nyc to visit her sister and pick her up after a long weekend. I’ve always laughed and said NYC is the one place you just can’t to GA. Airports are too far away from where you want to be. For me it’s about 2.5 hour drive to NYC with medium traffic. Flight time would be under an hour ~50 min. To white plains. But IFR plans put it just over an hour. Is it worth it?? She would have to take a train from white plains to upper east side. Maybe 20 min?? NYC airspace is spooky. Probably something I’d do with my CFI the first trip anyway. Any of you East coasters use the NYC GA fields???
