Today for my helicopter lesson we flew to the Flying Cloud Airport (in the city of Eden Prairie). It was extremely cold outside, there was snow everywhere and it was a bit windy. I have never flown with snow on the ground, so it was an interesting experience. It took about 20+ minutes both ways from the Anoka County Airport to the Flying Cloud Airport. I flew over the Mississippi River and near the city of Minneapolis (there was a great view of the new Twins stadium). At the Flying Cloud Airport we stopped at Elliott Aviation. Elliott is a FBO, a fixed base operation, which means that people fly their planes to the facility for refueling and maintenance, and you can also rent a car, buy or charter a plane, etc. Elliott also sells sunglasses! Yes, my quest to find non-polarized sunglasses has finally ended. I purchased a pair of VedaloHD sunglasses (they are especially made for pilots) and then wore them flying home. They worked wonderfully!
