Nothing conclusive however, and nothing on techniques where good instrumentation is not available.
I have done many crossings of the Alps and got many great photos, as well as (more recently) videos with an external camera, but they were just random opportunities, and most of the time there is cloud or haze.
Many years ago, in the days of 35mm film, I did a trip out of Wangen Lachen LSPV, Switzerland, with a local pilot, to Sion and back, and got great photos.
It may be best to fly to say southern France or southern Germany, refuel, stay the night and do a VFR flight the next day, to some preplanned places.
Does anyone have any ideas, and would anyone from “down there” who knows the particularly scenic spots be interested in coming along?
I have just heard about a newish concept in Italy – Albergo Diffuso. Someone buys an old (semi) abandoned hill town and concerts the whole thing into a hotel, with rooms in converted old homes centered around the main reception dining building, hence the “diffuso” bit.
For example this one https://www.sextantio.it/en/santostefano/abruzzo/ in the old walled town of Santa Stefano in Abruzzo.
Looks like a really wonderful way to see wilder parts of Italy, support and help revitalise old towns and also healthier than cramming into city hotels.
The only problem for us is that, by definition, these hill towns probably aren’t very close to airfields, given the terrain.
Do any of the Italian experts here know of any Albergo Diffusi which are close to out of the way, Avioportolano style, airfields? (preferably with 700, 800m runway min)
Might be a candidate for a EuroGA fly in!!??
No, but looking at the IM’s for the two units it does look identical – except for how the RS232 #1 in/out is labeled in the King IM.
Today, Sunday, I again drove the 5…
