The airport seem to have put a gate with a code to get back in. Very easy.

I have been taught that you need to be under a flight plan when crossing borders. This is VFR.
Last friday, I was flying between France and Switzerland. After take off I contacted ATC (Geneva information) to activate my flight plan. The operator told me that they could not find it. I asked if I could file one in the air and it was refused. At that moment I really hesitated. I was about to go back to my starting point when they called and said that they finally “found” my flight plan.
What would you do in this situation ? How much trouble can you get into when crossing border without a flight plan ?

Since I’m a Garmin man, I had ordered a new EIS/map in the form of a G3X GDU470 touchscreen to complement the rest of my panel, and a big box containing all the necessary hardware is sitting next to me as I write these words. Drawing the new schematics and preparing the installation requires a few hours, the implementation itself will probably take 1-2 weeks at my leisurely pace.
Diamond DA62 D-IRAY crashed in France:
Diamond DA50 OO-HAN crashed in Netherlands:
And last month DA42-VI OE-FVG landed OEI after suffering engine failure caused with HP pump failure, pieces of pump gear teeth found all over the engine.
Not risking it; they may well do just about anything even if the runway is totally empty.
I love them to bits.

Maybe the best thing about Sedona airport other than the scenery is that there’s a hotel directly across the street. Prices there like all US hotel prices have gone up a lot but on the scale of a…
