Flight to La Gomera

It’s been a whileย since my last post… So it’s time to write some lines and share some images with the world…

Today from our trip to La Gomera. It was a great day to fly, nice for taking images, and enjoy the views.

Here are some of the images from my flight. At the end you can find a 10 minute long video from the visual approach to La Gomera airport; which was a big fun.

Hope youยดll enjoy it as much as I did!

Safe landings๐Ÿ™‚

When I was 16-17 I discovered how much I was impressed by everything that was flying. Later, when I was finishing the secondary school, I decided to apply to a military school, so I could follow my dream. Just at that point, the whole system changed in Slovakia and all of Eastern Europe, the future of our Migโ€™s were uncertain, and so were the studies.

I was going to start to study as an aeronautical engineer, but the situation didnโ€™t look promising. I decided to study at the University of Economics in Bratislavaโ€ฆ

Flight La Palma – Tenerife South

Just a normal sunday flying. We went for a “100โ‚ฌ airport sandwiches” from Tenerife North airport to La Palma island. The weather was OK, bit cloudy on the departure at the origin airport, but nice, smooth during the flight and a bumpy landing.

On arrival it was a bit windy, with a it crosswind, but all good managable๐Ÿ˜‰.


We had our sandwiches, checked the meteorology (which was fine: Broken clouds at 1400 feet) and we headed back home. The weather on our route was nice, and we were flying over the clouds.

The flight takes normally 1 hour, and weย wanted to proceed via the south of the Tenerife, when we got the message that the meteorology determinated at our destination, and there was rain, fog, visibility 500 meters, with which makes us imposible to land there. Our not favourite alternative was to land at Tenerife South airport. I love this airport, as I have it just 10 minutes from my house, and I learned fly there.

Not favourite, because the landing taxes there for a PA28 are 170โ‚ฌ and you have to pay extra handling. But safety goes first.


It was a quite different flight, we loved it. Here is a short timelapse video; just in 2:30 minutes you can get from La Palma to Tenerife South.

Safe landings!


Flying around snowy Mt. Teide

It is February, and finaly the winter has started in Tenerife… After one week of rain, the highest mountain of Spain has been covered with snow.

Today it was a privilege to enjoy good flying weather to enjoy this beautiful scenery.

During this 2 hours we were watching the planes taking off and landing and I made a short timelapse of the sunrise as well.

Safe landings!๐Ÿ™‚


Yesterday I was flying for the first time a Cessna 182 with 230 hp. It’s like an rocket in comparation with the 172 or PA-28 that I am flying usualy.

On this flight I’ve installed the gopro under the wing looking backwards to get a different view, and not always the same…๐Ÿ™‚

The result of this was findingย 2 images where you can clearly see the vortices behind the plane in the clouds.

Enjoy them with me!๐Ÿ™‚

Safe flying!
