Are you kidding? SUN is a blast. It's two way traffic...just like in ASE. Standard OPS....boy this place is no fun to fly into. Coming in there this past weekend...we're flying the Q400 Visual to 31 and it has us fly on the east side of the valley inbound. On a 7 mile final, Hailey Tower clears a Skywest E-120 for takeoff on 13. Tower says "Horizon 345, can you go alittle further to the east", to which I reply "Hailey Tower, you do know that there is a mountain right here, don't you?"
That doesn't make sense. Globals and G550s have longer wingspans than a Q400, and they takeoff and taxi past each other all day in SUN.This place is crazy on some afternoons with the inbound Corp Jets. They have to hold them off the parallel taxiway when we take off due to wingtips clearances.
I hear ya about TWF...been there, done that. Our people always want to come out of SUN/ASE/EGE/TEX at GW and make NY :crazy:Winter Ops mostly get diverted to Boise (or Twin Falls in the past) due to any number of factors....alot of flights that go out full have to make a fuel stop in Boise because they couldn't take off with MIN total out of Sun Valley.
OK...You got me.And i said "One airliner"
