LELL to LEMS

The other day (10/06/2016) I got the opportunity to fly my loved PC-6 for a short position flight and I didn’t wanted to skip the chance to share it with you.

First thing in the morning we wake up and we go to LELL to pick up the PC-6 EC-LZI so we can start the activity dropping some crazy people who is looking to have a fun day (sure they are going to get it)

We took the plane out of the hangar and I said goodbye to Ariel who droved me there and was going back with the car.

I was alone.

I love the feeling of flying alone with a plane it’s like freedom, calm, excitement and love, everything together.

Requested start up the engine, received a transponder, taxi and called ready for departure. I got clearance for line up and hold, and finally cleared to take off, out to say that with the PC-6 and alone, the take-off run was really short and in an instant I was flying…

Had to do some deviation on my route, because the November point was reserved for incoming traffic, so I went over the whiskey point and handed over to BCN control, from here I was cleared to go directly to LEMS, I traced with my GPS a direct to Manresa and immediately the controller asked me which level I wanted to climb, since I was going alone and was a position flight, 3000 ft were more than enough and I could contemplate the wonderful view.

What I didn’t told you before, was that on Manresa there was a dense fog when we left earlier with the car, so what I saw was a wonderful view, see it for yourself.

Obviously before departure we called the dropzone to confirm that the fog went away at the aerodrome.

In the following, I am headed north and you can see Manresa on the front of the plane and the aerodrome is located to the northeast of the city.

it was a short but lovely flight, I hope you liked the pictures.

See you soon.
