A long day today, with a 6.6 hour flight to Muscat into somewhat of a headwind all the way.
Today we flew from Iraklion airport (Crete), to Sharm El Sheikh (Egypt), near the northern end of the Red Sea.
Its been a successful day. First time at the controls – and it was a great flight.
Well, we’re ready to leave.
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 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.
Here’s the mission…bring a new plane home from Europe!
