    We arrived at White Plains this afternoon to a waiting media flight. We obliged them with a trip down the Hudson. The rules have changed quite a bit in the last year but still very easy to do. The hardest part was keeping it down to 140kts. From takeoff to landing it took about 30 minutes, which is 10 minutes longer than normal because of the speed restriction in the corridor. If you ever get the chance this is a spectacular way to see NYC.
