Pico del Teide, or Mt. Teide is Spain’s highest Mountain. It is 3.718 mtrs high (= 12.198 feet). It was always my dream to climb with a plane to this altitude to see it from above. As the most dreams come truth ;-), we have decided on the way home from the island El Hierro to climb to 12.500 feet to see some snow left on Teide. With 3 people on board it took almost 50 minutes to climb so high, but it was worth it.
It was for the first time in my life to fly at FL125 on board of a general aviation plane (Piper Archer2) and to be the pilot in command. We took some awesome pictures, hope you will like them as well! I’ll get definitely back to take some more pics in the future ;-). Enjoy Mt. Teide from bird’s eye view and safe flights!
