GoPro in General Aviation

I thought, that I would get the best views fom the cockpit; but I think the best views has the Gopro camera situated outsite the plane on the vertical stab, or on the wing. I am really happy with the use of the Gopro in general aviation; it helps me to remember my flights better and to reproduce my flights to make things even better.

Last saturday we went out for triangle flight; the weather was fun-tastic, with almost no wind. We did a flight between 3 islands (Tenerife – Gran Canaria, Gran Canaria – La Gomera and La Gomera – Tenerife). Under 3 pilots, each of us was flying one leg.

Here are some impressive pictures I took during this flight. I hope you will like them as much as I do 🙂

Today the BacPac did it’s job; the battery lasted to record the whole flight 🙂

Safe landings!

  1. Nice pics. I actually discovered a funny detail. One can see the GoPro on the wingtip in the shots made my the GoPro on the tail.
    About this flight. Since you were 3 pilots in the plane. Never thought of scotching one outside on the fuselage to make more dynamic images ? There was no wind, sunny weather … Com’on Stan. Think out of the fuselage – sorry – box. 🙂

    • Hahaha, Tjerri! 😉 Not a bad idea! But there was no autopilot on board 🙂

      Yes, you can see the gopro on one of the wings, but we have placed another adhesive mount on the other wing, to maintain the plane in a leveled flight (lol) :-).

      I’ll tell you a secret: I was trying to make a selfie at 10.000 feet, but the pole was constantly turning around when outside the plane, so I’ll have to find out something different.
