A New Year’s resolution to broaden your horizons with flights to different airports that you haven’t yet visited may be rewarding in more ways than one.
Searching out airports away from your home base may challenge you to do some additional homework for familiarity ahead of time or lead to skill-building advice from an instructor. The rewards could be breathtaking scenery, a newfound appreciation for local conditions, and additions to your flying toolbelt.
