Santa Fe Trail VFR Tour

Status: Active
Description: The Santa Fe Trail was a 19th-century transportation route through central North America that connected Independence, Missouri with Santa Fe, New Mexico. Pioneered in 1821 by William Becknell, it served as a vital commercial highway until the introduction of the railroad to Santa Fe in 1880. Santa Fe was near the end of the El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro which carried trade from Mexico City.

A highway route that roughly follows the trail's path through the entire length of Kansas, the southeast corner of Colorado and northern New Mexico has been designated as the Santa Fe Trail National Scenic Byway.

On the Santa Fe Trail VFR Tour your flights will take you through the states of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado.

Aircraft Substitutions: Propeller or Heli only!
