We’ve just completed a fabulous flying holiday to the Italian island of Elba and on to the Greek Islands. 26 hours flying in 11 days!
For our first big trip in the A36 we flew from Denham (EGLD) near London, to Mali Losinj (LDLO) Croatia, for the EuroGA.org fly-in.
While there I took the chance to fly the DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ quadcopter – some footage is included here.
The Bonanza is finally airworthy! The engine has been zero-timed and we’ve replaced the Garmin GNS530 with a Garmin GTN750. Also added are an ADL120 datalink weather box and a PMA8000BT Bluetooth Audio panel.
For our first major trip we joined the EuroGA.org fly-in to Mali Losinj in Croatia. Strong headwinds gave us a 6 hr 5 minute flight outbound, but with tip tanks installed we landed with 37 US gallons of fuel, over three hours reserve. After a day and a half socialising and flying the Phantom 2 Vision+ (video to follow), we returned to the UK in glorious weather.
