Today – nice weather – I made for the first time the Biennial Flight Revue FAA (BFR) with Andrew Macmillon at EDTS (Villingen-Schwenningen). We had a good time and enjoyed the review. After that I went back to LFSB (Basel airport) to perform the 3 landings at night. Andrew is also the towerman. If you want to contact him call the tower EDTS. He as well takes BFR EASA.
Medical EASA and FAA at the same time, see BAZL (Switzerland, they are located in Zurich and in Geneva).
After this beautiful summer, which prevented us from flying, we headed to the autumn trip. First stage: Menorca Aero Club San Luis.
This place is still free of charge, but a cost-sharing is expected. After all, it has now tie downs, so you can pay something. Menorca Airport demands a handling agent for all planes which costs a horrendous amount of money. They probably want to keep away the small planes.
We refuelled at Beziers LFMH for 1.69€ per liter! When we arrived at San Luis Sol Car Hire already expected us.
We stayes in the Hotel Carlos III (adults only) which is a must for my wife. A lot of elderly people from UK were there also.
After a week we continued to Ile d’Oléron (refuelling again at LFMU) and called Olèron Classic Cars who brought us a 2CV6.
After a few days we had to head home again.
From the island Aero we visited two nice islands.
Am 1. August war das Fliegertreffen auf Föhr. Schlafen unter dem Flügel. Jeden ersten Samstag im August ist das Fly-in auf Föhr, Flugplatz EDXY. Mehr als 200 Maschinen sind eingeflogen und 150 Flugzeuge mit 200 Fliegern haben übernachtet. Bei strahlendem Sommerwetter war das wieder einmal ein perfekt organisierter Event.
This winter we spent in Australia, Sydney and North. Here some highlights.
No adventure flying, just relax and stay in the warm weather. T-shirt, shorts and flip-flops. We took over the C172 with glass cockpit in Bankstown from Smith Aviation, a recommendable plane.
Midcity Motor Inn, Mackay, was a good place to stay, cycle and staying in the pool.
Martina sent me for a flight with a Tiger Moth.
Approaching Emu Park, The warning was ennoying because the airfield was not in the database of the G1000.
Here we met a photographer from The Morning Bulletin in Rockhampton.
Approaching Orchid Beach on Fraser Island close to Hervey Bay.
Approaching Port Macquary.
The airport is close by the town. Thats the way we choose the places to stay – everthing reachable by the folding bikes.
The Konstanz Airport is an ideal place for a Sunday outing. From Basel , it’s only 120 kilometers, approximately 45 minutes by air .
Today we have easterly wind.

As always, we have our folding bikes there and ride into the city. Our favorite restaurant Seelig is a bit out off twon, direct at the lake . We enjoyed the view of the water and the mountains. Then we headed back to the airfield Constance EDTZ . The cozy little pilots lounge was open and we toke a coffee on the terrace.
On the way back we took a higher route, it rocks considerably less and after 45 minutes we landed in Basel LFSB . Due to traffic , we had to make some 360 and took the runway 26
