Slow Down!

I had a day off. I flew seven days in a row up to six hours a day. I slept in this morning and Tom had a fishing patrol at ten anyways. He came back and told me he gives me a brake now. He meant it was good I had a hard week. As…

29.2h SES – Victoria Harbour

“Victoria Harbour it’s floatplane Golf Kilo November Hotel. We’re 10 miles to the west and we’ll follow the shoreline at one thousand five hundred for Elk Lake and Shawnigan Lake.” We flew around Victoria! I love the city. I went there with my girlfriend in June. It is a city where you can walk around…

26h SES – Whistler and Chatterbox Falls

Sky clear, winds light and variable, temperature 26. But that’s Vancouver right? Yes, I chose the best two weeks of the year to fly in the area! The first flight in the morning took us to the ski resort of Vancouver. Whistler lies in a gorgeous valley. As I overflew the town a Beaver took…

8.0h SES – 50hrs Course

I’m living in a hangar now! 🙂 I always dreamt of an airplane in the living room. But I must admit I didn’t think about the smell of fuel… Tom and Christine are running the business here and they gave me a warm welcome! 🙂 This is the place for my 50 hour course on floats….

C152 oder 172?

So sieht meine Entscheidung aus, nach der Frage ob Cessna 172 oder 152. 🙂 Meine Flugschule versuchte mich zur Skyhawk zu überreden. Einerseits ging es mir aber um den Preis, es sind eben doch bis zu 1-2000 Dollar mehr für die PPL, und andererseits fragte ich mich ob es überhaupt Sinn macht. Ich fragte direkt…
