A little trip Shoreham EGKA to Guernsey EGBJ - February 2019

Just a few pics from a day trip yesterday.

Isle of Wight, with a bit of snow left on it

The NW bit of France

Alderney

Approaching the localiser at EGBJ rwy 27


On the ILS. I always fly the ILS to make sure the whole system is worthing 100% – all receivers and all indicators

A friend in a Jetprop. Always super service and excellent parking at ASG.

EuroGA leaflets – always do this bit

The harbour



Fish soup

Amazing scenery on the flight back – this is typical winter flying conditions, FL070

Yeah, no way I can hide

Guernsey in particular clearly has enthusiastic local FR24 detectors. Almost all the way to the surface, rwy 27

I have very good memories from our mini fly-in in Guernesey in August. Hope to go back and spend more time visiting the island.
One needs a lot of luck and time flexibility to travel in light GA in winter.

Yes; you have to grab the day and go for it. This is today

On these ad hoc fly-ins it tends to be a small group of regulars, but it’s true in the summer too, probably because peoples’ lives get dominated by other stuff. Most people have their lives booked up for maybe 6 months ahead.

You don’t have to own a buisness, just take a weekday off from work and go flying ;)?

Ps: better have a crystal ball for the weather and don’t brag about it with your boss next day !
