Flying to Egypt

20200705029300507 Lhe in flight new version Channels4 profile

In April 24’ I am looking at flying to Cairo via Italy & Greece – with 3 or 4 nights rest in Cairo.

A few things come to mind for this trip;

  1. Aircraft Insurance – It states North Africa (So should be fine)
  2. Access/Permits for Egypt
  3. Handling in Egypt
  4. Maintenance issues for a DA40 (Who can fix the aircraft this far from base)
  5. Oxygen refills down route (As I’ll be flying 3 up on oxygen there and back, I need a few airports that will refill via an adapter (Jet Centre in Greece/Italy?)

Also how does on access the Egyptian AIP? I can’t see the charts on

Lastly the easy bit, what places are worth visiting and have full Instrument capability – with challenging procedures etc?

All help would be appreciated

The majority of people I know who seat share are doing it primarily for cost sharing.

So the various “seat sharing” websites were really about cost sharing, but could not call it that.

With EASA’s liberalisation of cost sharing advertising (despite DGAC’s current amazing rearguard action) surely few people will bother running the old sites?

Flying a F Reg ULM from France to the UK

Img 3066 E78d6ee4 ec10 44c7 9ca5 b2e234b7e092

Hi, I currently live in France and I’m looking to purchase ULM.
Once purchased I will be looking to tour France and other European countries but also my main focus is the ability to fly back to UK to see family, I messaged the CIA seeking clarification that this is possible and some six weeks later I’ve still not had a response, I have sent a follow up message stating that if I did something illegal I’m sure I would get a very quick response!
Does anybody have any knowledge or can point me in the right direction where I can seek clarification that I will be able to fly without any problem subject of course flight plan
I have a French ULM licence, French PPL (A) licence transferred from UK
I’m very grateful for any knowledge shared
thanks Mike

I’d say that in my heavy cessna the only time a turn back would be possible, is at a huge airfield with multiple runways, having taken off from the longest runway, 1800m +, into a 10kt headwind and…

I gave them my full company name address and VAT number. Then they didn’t charge the Spanish VAT. That saved ~20%. Obviously I paid for it with…
