Approach and landing at Sarasota Bradenton, Florida Airport (KSRQ) the night of September 14, 2010. William Kent flying a Cessna 182, N2494E. The landing as such starts at the 5 minute mark in the video, so if you wish, let the video download about a third of the way, then fast forward to 5:00 minutes and watch from there to get the landing. The tower gave me the option of straight in to Runway 22, although that meant landing with a gusting tailwind, but this runway was so long it did not matter, so that is what I did.
This was the start of a round robin flight, St. Augustine, Florida to Sarasota, Florida Tuesday night, September 14, 2010, for court in Sarasota Wednesday morning, then on to Tallahassee, Florida Wednesday after court to meet a client and visit clients at the Wakulla County Detention Center in Crawfordville, Florida, then on that evening to Bob Sikes Airport at Crestview, Florida (for a Santa Rosa Detention Center visit in Milton that night and a visit to a client at the Century Correctional Institution at Century, Florida the next afternoon), then back to Bob Sikes Airport in Crestview and a flight back to St. Augustine Thursday evening. Over a 1,000 miles, about six hours of flying.
This video shows the approach and landing at Sarasota Bradenton Airport about 8:30 at night. I taxied up to Rectrix FBO, who I highly recommend. A beautiful facility and very well run. Same compliment to the Million Air FBO at Tallahassee, who also have a beautiful facility and made their conference room available to me at no charge to meet with my clients. As always, the folks at Emerald Aviation at Bob Sikes Airport were down to earth, friendly and helpful. A lot of the joy of flying is the nice people you deal with at the airports.
