After the adventure with the alternator pulley the previous day, I was ready for a Grand Canyon tour. Got up early, took off at sunrise and was greeted with this spectacular view. See for yourself in the attached video.
The airport in Sedona is situated on a mesa above the city. On takeoff, don’t abort too close to the end of the runway because you will fall off the cliff (literally). Know your performance numbers and define your abort-takeoff point before you start your takeoff roll.
