🇺🇸USA here we come! •
@aesthetic.aviator and I just booked a special kind of "US road trip"! From January 20th next year on we will cross the US from east to west and vise versa within just 2 Days and eight flights of which four will be US Domestic flights.
I am super excited and really looking forward to my first visit to the US 😍

Let me know, if you find us crazy or not. 😅

Attention, fighters are coming in!

May I introduce to you:
Messerschmidt Bf 109 G-4, the most efficient and deadliest fighter airplane in the European theater of WWII.
Developed in 1934, the 109 saw its first combat during Spanish Civil war in 1936. When WWII broke loose in September 1939 the Bf 109 was the backbone of the German "Luftwaffe". Throughout the war, there were several versions and stages of development, making the Bf 109 not only the "Jäger" airplane with the most kills, but also an able light Bomber aircraft (Jagdbomber or JaBo)
With Nazi Germany being defeated in 1945, Spanish and Czech companies continued the production of the Bf 109 for it to remain on active duty until 1965!

On our trip last Thursday we made a stopover at "Technikmuseum Speyer", a museum dedicated to all kinds of technical achievements man has created in the last century. Among a vast number of vintage cars, motorcycles and trucks, their main focus lies on Aviation as they have a retired Ex-Lufthansa Boeing 747-200 on exhibition.

If you are deciding to make a trip to the "Rhein-Main-Area" you really should consider a visit to the Museum!

Chasing thunderstorms! ⛈ •
Last Thursday, me and three of my fellow student pilots, were on a 3h and 500km solo flight. While departing Mönchengladbach having the best weather imaginable, it changed drastically on our way back home. Even though it wasn't forecasted, a long line of thunderstorms built up, while we were on Ground in Speyer (EDRY) for visiting the "Speyer Technik Museum".
It ended up, in us looking for a way through the clouds in order to get back home.
The video shows very well, how critically the conditions were.
Luckily we made it home back safely and always stayed VMC, but the point were we would have had to decide to turn around and divert to our alternate was more than close.

The point is: Expect the unexpected. When we departed in the morning, we didn't expect the weather to change that drastically. We were proven wrong and got into a situation, which could have gone wrong very easily..

What did we learn? We learned to always have an eye on the weather when you stop over somewhere. Even on sunny summer days.
So guys keep that in mind when going on a day trip by plane. It could safe your life!

They beauty in the skies! ✈️

Did you know, that the Dutch King Willem-Alexander used to fly the Fokker 70/100 twice a month as a first officer for KLM?

The Fokker 70/100 series is my absolute all time favorite when it comes to commuter airplanes. For me not only its marvelous and classic design but also its comfortable cabin, which, on average, even provides more leg space than a A320 in a typical domestic Economy Class configuration makes it the best way to travel on shorthaul routes within Europe.
Sadly most operators like KLM Cityhopper are to retire the Fokker in favor of the "more modern" and more economical ERJ-170/190 Series pretty much soon. Nevertheless, as long as there are airlines like @avantiair who know of reliability and utility of the Fokker 70/100 for small and aspiring Airlines, its legacy will go on for decades.

Finally, the wars of Low cost have reached @dusairport ! With the arrival of @flynorwegian at Düsseldorf Airport, and as @airberlin never has been a proper low cost carrier, local hero @eurowings is facing its first real competition at their home base.
Yet, Norwegian is challenging Eurowings on only 5 Spanish holiday Routes and only 18 flights a week, but officials already announced that Düsseldorf will become a focus city and base for Norwegian in the future, not only for European but also for their transatlantic destinations.

#tbt to yesterday's flying lesson when the weather was on point.. well except from some thermal turbulences - but anyway a great day flying!
Today I'm unfortunately grounded. Not due to the difficult weather conditions as you might think, but because of a partial radio failure at EDLN which makes traffic pattern impossible...

Kudos to @aesthetic.aviator for the picture!

Beautiful Tunisair Boeing 737-600, Registration: TS-ION shortly before touchdown on Düsseldorf Rwy 23L. •
Did you now that the tunisian flag carrier is one of only four airlines remaining operating the smallest version of the Boeing 737NG.

Can you name the other three? •

After only 3.5hrs of flying, landings are getting better and better on each approach!
This Video was recorded two days ago when the Centerline was yet hard to aim at! 🙈

T+32 "Patience is a virtue..."

Finally made it into the cockpit... Well, at least on the Ground 😂
Since our PPL theory exam was postponed to end of the month, I'll not be able to commence flying until early May... although it sucks to be grounded that long but as an upside it gives me more time to be prepared for the exams. •
Wishing you a great day!

GNAV got me like... It takes me some time to get familiar with using an E6B Navigation calculator. The E6B seems to be a tool from the past, when computers could barely sum up one and one but even today it is a mighty tool when it comes to flight planning - at least during flight school. •
