Its been a successful day. First time at the controls – and it was a great flight.
Well, we’re ready to leave.
For an Australian, there are a number of differences that one notices when spending time here in Switzerland.
A few days ago we spent an afternoon/evening in Lucerne, not far away from Stans.
Here are some photos that I took while we were there. It is a city with a deep and rich history.
Today was my first flight in my new PC-12 🙂
For reasons related mostly to insurance coverage before the ferry flight, I was ‘riding shotgun’ on this flight, watching from just behind Pete and Jan (a Pilatus factory/test pilot).
This gallery contains 7 photos.
Some images from and around the main Pilatus hangar…
This morning was time for the pleasant experience of my first look at my new plane.
Monday morning at the Pilatus factory, and time for a first world problem.
We got to Stans, in Switzerland today (Sunday 19th August), a process that took around 30 hours from when we started in Adelaide.
Update to the below – it looks like flightaware does not track private flights in the European region. I had hoped it’d work, because it does work for private IFR flights in Australian just fine. It’ll start working when we are back near Australia again.
