    Escape the Heat - KPHX - KDEN Crossfire

    Man, it's hot in Phoenix - not really much better in Denver either! Why not take a quick trip! It's time to escape the heat... at a nice comfy cruising altitude, somewhere above FL180! Load up your aircraft with passengers looking for a change of scenery during the dog days of summer! ZAB ARTCC and ZDV ARTCC are staffing up to bring you a fully covered trip between KDEN and KPHX - or any other destination you may choose. Maybe get in those hours and make it a round trip between the two. Just remember - no matter your destination - "check density altitude"!

    See you in the friendly skies!
