Private Pilot's Tips for KMMH Mammoth Lakes, CA

If you're a private pilot, getting to Mammoth by air can save you a ton of traffic and time -- and the Sierra views from 10,000 feet are world class. But for all the obvious reasons like wind, snow, visibility, terrain and turbulence, flying into KMMH can be challenging. I interviewed my favorite pilot to get his top tips for general aviators. Because I'm me I've taken the editorial liberty of 'extending' his comments. Click here for his advice, my commentary, and more fantastic pics and videos of our Eastern Sierra flying fun.
