Trip To La Gomera

On this particular day, our initial intentions were flying from Tenerife North to Gran Canaria, but due to forcasted turbulence on the rute and more than 20 kts wind on approach we have decided to go to La Gomera.

It is quite airport, and you get always welcomed over the radio after landing.

Our journey took less than 1 hour, due to tailwind on our way to La Gomera.

Flying at 6’500 feet allows you a smooth ride, in this case a good tailwind and as well some safety factor in the case of engine failure.
