I recently flew my RV-14A down the Hudson River VFR corridor and circled the Statue of Liberty. IMHO this should be a bucket-list item for all pilots - and it's not nearly as difficult as one might think.
There are specific VFR procedures for northbound, southbound, and other traffic that need to be reviewed first - but don't be intimidated
as it's totally worth it to see the New York skyline, Central Park, Lady Liberty etc from the vantage point of a Van's bubble canopy. I did it at 1100 feet AGL, which is 150' below
the Empire State Building!
Of note for us RV drivers: speed limit for the Hudson VFR corridor is 140 KIAS, which is easily bust-able in our birds (not so much for the Cessnas, Pipers, etc that I started to overtake). Just throttle back and enjoy the view.
This also fulfilled a more personal goal: I've always wanted to overfly the harbor where my ancestors Gerrit Cornelison Van Newkirk and his wife first came to America from Holland in 1659. I also flew by Scarsdale, home of my more-famous namesake John "Scarsdale Jack" Newkirk
, Squadron Leader of the Flying Tigers in WW II.
Bucket List item checked - thanks, Van's!
