During the grey fall days it is hard to believe that there’s blue skies – anywhere above. One lucky Saturday the clouds opened up a bit to let us catch a bit of sunlight. Knowing there weren’t any clouds in the alps, we headed toward them for a $100 fondue.
The alps holding back the clouds for our visual approach at Saanen. 🙂 And since this is all about pictures… I won’t talk too much. 😉
The fondue, mission accomplished!
As it was getting dark early we went back to the airplane. We were not sure if the clouds allowed us to descend back to our homebase. The lady from ground service ensured us we were welcome to come back if things didn’t work out. But we’ve been lucky and went back below the overcast at Lausanne.
The pilot’s licence is just worth it, no doubt. After this flight I count 137 hours on aeroplanes. Now, my plan towards the commercial licence is to gain experience and enjoy flying until I have at least 200 hours. Then it’s time for America and to make sure I am well within Practical Test Standards. Plus there’s the Instrument Rating, and, and, and… looking forward to it.
