Post Best place to rent DA42 in Scandinavia?

Good day,

Ill graduate flight school soon with CPL MEIR MEP and APS MCC all done and Id like to fly with my family from Denmark up to northern Norway for a few days and back.. Does anyone have any experience in renting a Diamond DA42 anywhere in Scandinavia? I know Aeropole has some in Finland but thats pretty far away. Maybe some aeroclubs that have them? Preferably in Denmark, Sweden or Norway. Any information would be greatly appreciated, have a nice day

I like your sense of adventure and would encourage you to develop your experience.
Without poring too much cold water in your idea, there are a number of issues that you will encounter.

A DA42 is a major asset to an organisation and they will want to protect their investment. Therefore if they do allow the aircraft to be hired (and I can think of two in the area) they will put a high PIC limit and then require an extensive checkout.

The insurance requirements are typically a minimum of 100hrs PIC on MEP for pilots who are not instructors.

Although a fresh CPL ME/IR feels great, it takes time to build up experience to a competent level to fly into Scandinavia. If you look at DEA / 2Excel / FCSL and see when pilots fly light twins overseas you will get the idea.

Keep posting to let us know how you get on.
