Gila Bend - Phoenix / Beechcraft Bonanza A36 (N7365F) / VFR

A routine flight from the blistering heat of Gila Bend to the blistering heat of Phoenix. It was cooler in the air but still a furnace on the ground. Only 11 AM and already 91° F on the ramp. I'm so glad it's just a simulation!

Anyway, the weather was pretty clear, and I had no trouble finding my way to Phoenix by pilotage, along my usual route of Highway 85 and then Interstate 10. Landing was very smooth and without any problems, on runway 8, straight in from 3500 feet.
