Default Landed at every public airport in Virginia

All,
Granted this is a pure boast, yet when I noticed that I had only a few airports in VA that I had not yet landed at, I made it my mission.

Yes, there is a ambassador program with a passport and stamps to prove I was there, yet I only desired to log it.
I know there is a cool leather jacket upon completion from the Virginia Dept of Aviation, but I have my Dad's Navy jacket from WWII, and don't need another.

I saved Dulles (KIAD) for last, and really studied to ensure I'd get it right.
By doing my homework and noting that weekdays between 12:05 and 12:40 (local time) they are not busy, I filed, and was cleared to land.

The tower ATC folks were very accommodating and pleasant.
I was a little too buys to get any photos of IAD.



I'm now contemplating my next big mission.

Daddyman

Snopercod,
I've got several in NC, so a nice start on your state.

Post Awesome!

Great to hear that. I always wondered if there is a person who flew to every airport in the America.

I chalked it up as a mission to think about.
