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.
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.
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.
We got to Stans, in Switzerland today (Sunday 19th August), a process that took around 30 hours from when we started in Adelaide.
Here’s the mission…bring a new plane home from Europe!
I’m a pilot. I really, really love flying.
I started out in gliders in the mid 1980’s, and I’ve been flying them ever since. There are many stories in there, but this isn’t about them.
I bought a Cirrus SR22 GTS Turbo in 2009, and had a ball gaining a PPL(A) and flying that aircraft too. But this isn’t about that aircraft either.
Rather, its about an aircraft that has been pretty much #1 on my bucket list of ‘planes I would love to own one day’, for many years now.
The Pilatus PC-12.
