Tomorrow. Well Augsburg actually. Will be nice to fly in this good weather although last week was very hazy.
Make sure you gold-plate your noise certificate, but it in a velvet box and wear white gloves when you hand it over.
Augsburg is the most noise certificate obsessed airport on this planet. They will xerox it and put it in a folder. When I asked the guy why they make such a fuzz about it as about the only airport in Germany, he started on a rant how everybody else in Germany grossly neglects proper treatment of noise certificates.
Great airport otherwise, a lot of GA activity.
I've been there quite a few times, but have never been asked about the noise certificate. Maybe they already have a copy from someone elses visit.
Didn't ask me for noise certificate just now.
Achim, I just him if he wanted my noise certificate. He said no. Maybe he just doesn't like you?
Maybe he just doesn't like you?
Yeah, Achim is suspicios guy - he makes a lot of noise
I bet he is on vacation and you got lucky. He keeps a collection of thousands of noise certificates. When he was younger he had a stamp collection.
I'm am not the only victim, the guy is notorious...
OK guys can we arrange a collection to fund a flight to this place, so I can test my new noise certificate. I make it about €600 return and I am happy to go halves.
On reflection, such a subsidised flight might be illegal in Germany... ok scrap the idea
I was planning to go there in a week, maybe Peter you can fax me your certificate and I can ask.
On second thought, my fax machine doesn't do gold plating on purple paper...
So here are a couple of photos.
Lots of cloud.
High for weather avoidance
Lots of weather at high altitude
