Daytona Beach

Up ahead is KDAB, Daytona Beach airport. It’s also Daytona speedway. Once a year thousands of people visit the speedway for the Nascar Daytona 500. Everyday thousands of passengers fly by the speedway because it’s located right beside a STAR (Standard Terminal Arrival Route).

Today we’re flying to KMCO (Orlando airport). We’re filed for CWRLD4 STAR via the OMN (Ormond beach)  transition. The controller is telling us to expect vectors for localizer 17L. No problem, but it’ll be a long taxi to our gate located on airside 1 apron.
