The Spartan Approach
When your destination airport has sketchy details and skimpy runways, youíll want to look at more than the approach chart. Have a calculator handy, too.
Youíre eager for your day trip to meet the gang and head to East Lansing, Michigan for a Spartans football gameóprovided you can get yourself to Tecumseh, southeast of Michigan State University. No big deal; itís less than two hoursí flight from your home base and youíre in your trusty Cessna 182. So far so good, until you actually see whatís in store for you.
