BTE World Tour '17 - Legs 7 & 8

Recommended Posts

I forgot to post after my flights yesterday. Anyway, here's legs 7 and 8.

After spending a couple of days in London it was time to continue the World Tour. I managed to get to Heathrow around 8am local and after the pre-flight I fired up the PC-12 and was ready for my IFR instructions.

I got back at around noon with plenty of daylight and good weather left to knock off what will be the shortest leg of the tour so far - Brussels to Amsterdam.

This one may have been short but it was plenty of fun. A low enough cruise altitude and great weather gave me a chance to see a lot of scenery along the way and of course, take pictures.

Leg 8 May 17-17 Brussels National (EBBR) to Schiphol (EHAM) 87 nm, 0 h 26 m, Low Altitude 3,000ft
Weather - Wind Direction and Speed 216°M, 4 kts, Temperature 21°C, 69°F, Pressure 29.87 inHg, Visibility > 20 nm:

I'll probably run out of plane before I run out of flags to put on it:

Wheels up - 144pm local 1144am UTC from the tower:


EBAW and the city of Antwerp from 3,000ft:

3,000ft over Rotterdam:

Cleared to land, ILS runway 36R:

Landed - 2:14pm local 4:14pm UTC
Flight time - :30
Accumulated flight time - 23hrs 35mins
Accumulated distance - 5042

I touched down at 2:14 local. I think I spent more time taxiing than flying on this trip. Anyway, I decided to spend some time seeing the sights and I'll head for Luxembourg Saturday.

Until next time, happy landings!
