Recently I’ve made a flight with 2 friends spotters on the Piper from Tenerife North to La Palma and back.
As this was the first time for them on a small plane like this one, they were really enjoying the views from the cockpit and also from the co-pilot seat.
The weather was actually pretty good, almost no wind, no turbulence. Only some cloud layers between 3.000 – 8.000 feet. We were able to climb to get about them and wnjoy the views of the sea of clouds. It feels like to fly a big airliner…
The basic instrument training I´ve done was a great help to maintain the plane on the desired track when descending through the cloud layer. The basic thing is to look inside the cockpit on the instruments and trust your instruments and don’t look outside.
We did one touch and go at La Palma Mazo Airport (GCLA) and returned back to Tenerife North (GCXO). It was a great trip with great views in a great company!
Here I share with you some of the views and of course a short video as well.
