A very short repositioning flight in the Cessna Citation Mustang from the St. Louis Lambert Airport to the Spirit of St. Louis Airport. As I taxi onto the runway for takeoff, the airport diagram is displayed on the MFD for easy reference. Once On the runway the synthetic vision shows the runway and center line stripes on the pilot Flight Display. This is so accurate that our position several feet right of the center line as seen through the windshield is accurately displayed on the PFD. The takeoff is on runway 30R and the landing at Spirit Airport is on runway 8R. Straight line distance between the two airports is only 15 nautical miles which makes for a very busy single pilot trip. As soon as I level off, ATC confirms I have Spirit in sight and I’m cleared for the visual to 8R. This was a Saturday afternoon so there isn’t much ATC radio traffic.

Citation Mustang Landing Rogers Arkansas
A beautiful day for a Cessna Mustang single pilot flight to Rogers Municipal Airport-Carter Field Arkansas. This was the day after northwest Arkansas was hit by a winter storm. I approach the airport from the east and fly a right base for a landing on runway 2. You can see lots of snow on the ground and the snow plow has cleared a narrow strip down the center of the runway. ATC and tower radio communications can be heard in the audio.
