Phoenix - Tucson / Beechcraft Bonanza A36 (N3759W) / VFR

This was a short and pleasant flight to Tucson (I don't much care for Tucson, but it's a virtual world). From Cutter Aviation, where I had parked on my last flight, I was instructed to taxi directly to 7R, which is very close, and then from there I took the 144 radial from PXR down to TOTEC, and then to TUS and the airport, where I landed on runway 3. Although I have a fancy GPS and EHSI in the aircraft, I limited myself to the EHSI and the PXR and TUS VORs for naviation, using the GPS only to verify my track (to make wind correction easier). The whole thing was flown at 5500, which is sufficient as long as you take care about some of the mountains near Tucson. Weather was excellent.
