In Greece we have not faced a serious (for our standards :O ) winter climate yet for this season.

Mountains are without snow and December still had some perfect flying weather for most of its part.

Before yesterday I flew a route (I did a year ago as well) that takes you over some of Greece's high mountain range, south Pindos mountains. I flew from Athens Megara LGMG to Ioannina LGIO.

The Western Cape offers wonderful flying and, away from Cape Town itself, endless uncontrolled airspace in which to play to your heart's content. :)


Approaching a farm strip at Kersefontein
- near Hopefield, about 90 nm N of Cape Town
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v146/FlyingLawyer/Kstripapp.jpg


Heavy rain a few days earlier -
but puddles shallow as per landing info
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v146/FlyingLawyer/Ksfonteineb.jpg

Kersefontein farm is a wonderful old Cape Dutch homestead which is also a guest house. The owner, whose family have farmed there since 1770, is a keen pilot, very knowledgeable aviation enthusiast and excellent host.
We didn't stay at the farm this time, but certainly shall on another visit to the Cape.

Landed for another break. Stellenbosch must be one of the prettiest settings for an airfield in the world. The surrounding mountains are stunning. The pic gives some idea, but doesn't do the scenery justice.

I found the approach into Castle Kennedy a little confusing too but got there in the end. I had the advantage of speaking to the very helpful Lord Stair who owns the airfield first and he gave me a good briefing.

The haziness in most of these pictures were mainly due to 3 reasons:
a) Some African dust drifting slowly to the north to anoy me.
b) My constant inabillity to remind myself to wipe the windscreen clean before I set off.
c) My unimpressive photographic skills.

The old Athens International Hellinikon Airport (closed LGAT) where some Athens 2004 Olympic installations were built and Agios Kosmas Marina. Glyfada in the distance.

The little village port of Perdika in Aigina island with its fresh fish tavernas and sea-front bars is a well known and favourite weekend destination for Athenian leisure boats... Late in the afternoon in a weekend in the Summer months, there will hardly be a mooring position left!

By the way, do you think the communication will be difficult for me since I have learned everything in English?

Although Greece is not the best in the world to demostrate the fact that English is THE prime language in aviation, and although perfectly legal, sometimes the frequency gets clogged with Greek, you will absolutely not have any problems communicating in English with Athina Information (FIS), assuming you will be flying VFR. Sometimes if you're lucky, nearby traffic may even talk back to you in English, for situational awareness purposes. :D :hmm:

Thanks chaps. I am not very good with cameras and I just pressed the tit when it seemed appropriate. I think I took 55 pics!

How was I allowed to be there is quite a different topic. Mmnn - let me just say that I was incredibly privileged. Those of you who know me, know the bizarre turn of events that caused it to happen as I left the RAF 24 years ago!

The only remaining Sepecat Jaguar Squadron in the Royal Air Force, 6 Sqn, have been told that the Jaguar will be withdrawn from service at the end of this month, some months before the due date. This has caused disruption to all Squadron personnel, from the "fairies and sooties" that service the jets, through to the ever so nice "squippers", safety equipment folk to the admin and ops folk.

An amazing day and when I'm 80 odd years old and dribbling, making incoherent noises - it'll be the one that I'm thinking about!

Thanks to OC6 and Jag Staneval!

Thanks must go to the organisers for a very well organised ,safe,

well placed for photo's.

Mollis is idyllic - no ATC, security fences or yellow jackets. The parallel taxyway is a public footpath, people recognise the risks, behave sensibly and everyone gets on fine. It's an ex airforce airfield now open PPR.

Fabulous pictures, Basil. I didn't take many photos, but my passenger did so there may be a few more to come. We explored the Oberland fairly thoroughly, then aimed for the Matterhorn (which we missed, due to heavy sink just North of the Dent Blanche), flew past the Grand Combin and on to the Mont Blanc massif. It was a great morning's flying.
This is the Otemma glacier, just East of the Grand Combin:

Aosta is a nice destination - pleasant town, and a good airport in a stunning location. Nicer still is the nearby strip at Chamois, a few minutes flight from Aosta. The village of Chamois can be reached by cable car, or by air. Here is the strip (the threshold is about a quarter of the way up the picture, directly above the wing):

She is a well known ol' gal. Its amazing who knows her , a few years ago I managed to get up front on a flight to Tenerife (in the good old days :) ) Talking to the Captain I mentioned that I had a share in a plane at Barton. It turned out that he had done some of his ppl training in G-PLAN. Small world.
Although only a C150 she has seen me to Orkney in the North , Alderney in the south , lands end in the west and I think North Coates is as far east as I have been. May not be the fastest in the aviation world or perform like the proverbial homesick angel , but reliable and easy to fly , definitely.

I booked with Cesca under the aforementioned number and got checked out in their PA28-161 EC-FXS from Son Bonet airfield (LESB) by a very friendly English lady named Valerie, and then rented the aircraft for another hour. The condition of the a/c is okay but not great, as are the prices.

Well, today I took my 6-year old for his first glider ride. It was 70 degrees out, 30 miles of visibility, just a little bumpy.
http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa72/Aerowerk/Adamsfirstgliderride02.jpg

Ended up just being a sleigh ride but that was ok. As we were rolling down the runway he was so excited I thought he was going to levitate us and wing us past the cub.

http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa72/Aerowerk/Adamsfirstgliderride03.jpg

Before I took my son up in the glider, I took him up in a 1946 C140. I joined the 140 club partly for the purpose of introducing my kids to flight. I have access to a super cub as well as the gliders, but side-by-side seating can't be beat for being able to project confidence to your child.

I think all C150/2s should have this conversion done, it ups the cruise to 100 knots and it's a taildragger.
There is an easier way. Sell the C150/2 and convert the money into a C140. 100kts cruise with a c85 and it's a taildragger!
That air2air shot of the C140 was taken from a friend's C150. In climb we were about dead even, both airplanes hauling two adults. In cruise I could really run away from him. I have heard C120's are faster, no flaps, and a cleaner wing.
But I would not argue against your sentiment of taildragger-izing the world.

Hi Folks,

The thread seems to be creeping down the list, so here's my attempt at adding piccies to keep it alive (it my first time adding from picassa, so I'm sorry if I screw up!). These pics are from a little jaunt taking off from Schenetady, NY (pronouced ska-neck-tady by the natives), heading down to the Catskill mountains then around Albany, NY - which is the state capitol (a little known fact!). I took a well equipped 172 and three friends from uni and it worked out at $29 a piece for an hour - bargain. Enough preamble, here's (hopefully) the pics:

Autumn colours in the Mohawk river valley:

I've had dogs on the runway in Thailand before, and a family of ducks at, wait for it, Duxford, and a Hare-miss at Cranfield. But a Girraffe ? ! ! Judging by the port flap, the pilot was landing. I suppose he could be excused. Girraffes can motor, and maybe, he simply didn't see it. That's a nasty looking crick in the ole boys neck ! Incidentally, where is "V5" from ?

...but interesting (well, I thought so). This is a model of the only nonoplane (plane with nine wings) ever built, the 1921 Caproni Ca.60 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caproni_Ca.60), at the Musee de l'Hydraviation (http://www.aviationmuseum.eu/World/Europe/France/Biscarosse/musee_Hydra_Aviation.htm) (Seaplane Museum, roughly translated), in Biscarosse, south-west of Bordeaux. It did fly, twice - once successfully, the second time someone forget to secure the ballast representing a full load of passengers - on rotation it all slipped backwards, and that was the end of that (and the pilots, too).

OK chaps - nice pics but let's size them properly before posting.

David Good !

I am using MSIE 7

But that is not the issue.

Why does my pic sit nicely in the screen and yours doesn't?

I have a wide screen - running at 1152 by 864 pixels.

If I change the resolution - which seems to defeat the fact that like a lot of other people we have upgraded to LCD and better screens - will this make the difference.

Maybe the instructions should change.

How does my pic appear to you?

It takes up about 2/3 of the PPRune column width.

I have two monitors - an LCD 1280 x 1024 - the pictures fit fine on this one - the other is CRT 1024 x 768 and I don't see the whole of some pictures.

23rd Sep 2008, 20:32
Thanks. I'm not too sure of the exact settings off the top of my head,will check when I get home. I do remember it was a very cold evening,I had my ski wear and arctic gloves on! This was one image of 5 taken whilst this aircraft conducted night circuits. I use a Canon 20D and for this shot I used a Sigma 15-30mm EX lens. Camera was tripod mounted,using the bulb setting with a remote shutter release. ISO would have been 100 and an exposure of approx 2mins but I will check that and aperture later.

Fortunately it was a very still night at the end of the runway,although as you can see from the chimney to the left there was some wind about a mile away,unfortunately there were very few stars in the sky that night.

Thanks for the comment,glad you like,I will be attempting some similar night shots in the near future.

Had a fantastic time up in Inverness last week with the Highland Flying School. I did their Advanced Handling Course which got me familiar with the PA-38 Tomahawk. Included short field takeoffs and landings, grass field operations (at the Dornoch strip), spinning, Chandelles and Lazy Eights. They booked me into a very reasonably priced B&B at nearby Ardesier (on the shores of the Moray Firth). Excellent breakfasts but best foregone on the day one does the spinning - I found out the hard way!

The day after the course finished I took one of the Tomahawks solo up to the Orkneys after a short detour over Loch Ness. At Kirkwall I found a grizzled but friendly taxi driver who took me on a two hour tour of the island.

Well, I'm not sure that it's private flying, but here are some photos I took the other day on the way back from flight testing...

use the [ img ] and [ url ] tags but remove all the * in the tags (put there so you can see the code)

Took my lady as my first passenger up on a bimble to Goodwood and back last Thursday. The weather was fantastic and in spite of being extremely nervous she thoroughly enjoyed the flight. She also took some amazing photos!

I assume there are more people reading than posting to this thread so it tends to get lost several pages into the forum. Is it possible it could have a permanent place at the beginning in the same way as Flying Videos. I personally enjoy the photos more than the videos.

Pity more people don't take the trouble to take pictures or is it that they are too shy to share them with us?

I took two weeks off during the end of October to have some relaxing vacations with the wife in the islands around Tahiti; Society Islands of French Polynesia in South Pacific.

There, for 3 days I rented a PA28 from the aeroclub in Tahiti Aéroclub Les Ailes du Fenua (http://www.ailesfenua.net/) and toured around Bora Bora (NTTB) and Maupiti (NTTP) before returning it back to Tahiti Faaa Intl. (NTAA) and continuing the vacations in "ground mode" !

Excellent experience.
GA flying there is very simple without hassles.
The views are amazing.

No PNR, No handlers, No charges, Nothing special for VFR or IFR op's.
So basically there is nothing to report :-D
All goes smooth down under there.
It's French Territory and the JAR PPL is used as if in Europe.
All ATC & Pilots talk there (even NTAA's ATIS) is in French but they talk in English (to you only as everywhere :evil: ) as soon as you call in English.

There are plenty of islands to tour around and a couple of AVGAS refueling points (NTAA & NTTR).
Most info. can be found in France's on line AIP.

Here is an online album of my flying (and some ground!) multimedia from the trip.
Enjoy :wink:

Mike Parsons - We certainly weren't in wave. As far as I remember, the lower vario was total energy. The upper one wasn't. Just after I took that photo, a 737 went past us at the same height.
