Flying over beautiful green landscape

I recently visited my home country Slovakia. The nature in the summer time is very nice, everything is green, and the landscape is simply beautiful.

I simply had to arrange a flight to see this beauty from the air and to enjoy the feeling of freedom to fly around. My brother joined me and we were able to hire a Cessna 172 at a near aerodrome Očová (LZOC) for a short 1 hour flight. They have a grass strip 26/08, 800 meters long.

A lot of gliders and other aviation activities can be found there, such as paragliding, etc.

In the Canary Islands there are no possibilities to land on a grass strip, and most of the flights are above the sea. It is really great to enjoy a different landscape, with a lots of “alternative” airstrips.

Here are some of my images taken with the Gopro.

Safe flying!

  1. Although the Rastafari in me whispers ‘Don’t land on the grass, just smoke it’, I encourage you to keep on practicing and crafting your landing skills on grass. After all, I discovered that the landing strip in Zemst is … yep, totally covered with grass. Give me a yell when you plan to arrive and I’ll personally jump on the grass mowing machine to give you a first class welcome …

    • Hey, this sounds as a good plan, my friend! 😉😀😀. Maybe we can smoke after a succesfull landing on the Zemst “international grass strip” 😀😀😀. Would love to see a pic of the field meanwhile I’ll be practicing some landings… Btw, it’s not so difficult to land on grass as I thought… 😉🌱🌱🌾🌾
