Y'all,

I'm going to be in DEN for a couple of weeks in May, staying very close to KAPA.

Late afternoon/evenings are going to be free, and possibly - maybe - one weekend. I'm thinking about making good use of the time there.

1) Maybe get a mountain flying lesson in somewhere - I've never done that and I'm thinking it could be a good use of the time while I'm out there.
2) Get a rental checkout and do some exploring around the front range. Again, haven't done any real flying out there, know I'd need a bit of instruction.
3) Something I haven't thought of yet that you think would be a good idea.

I'm open to ideas, but leaning toward the more educational ones. Thoughts?

I appreciate the links. Thanks.

I was really looking for context and ideas - info for people who have done what I’m thinking about here.

Aspen flying club does mountain flying and mountain checkouts. They also have an aerobatic airplane. You can also get a tail wheel endorsement. Very large fleet at a reasonable rate.

Yeah, I looked at their website and they do seem to have reasonable rates and HUGE fleet. If things work out I might give them a call. It all depends on having time, money and weather all together. I think the mountain flying instruction would be quite beneficial, and if I can do it in a TW even better. Already have a TW endorsement, just not a lot of TW time.

The DEN area always had a yuuuge GA base. I remember going to APA back in the early 90s and there were 3 flying clubs of 30 airplanes each, with all kinds of makes and models.
