Up in the air
Besonders interessant ist es natürlich, die eigene Heimat und ein bekanntes Gebiet von oben zu sehen. Das ist Igelsberg:
In summer, two guests from the Alsace in France have been my guests. They have come here to fly and that way, I found out about the flying group in then neighbour village Musbach. And I immediately got curious. A reader of my newsletter wrote me shortly afterwards, that it could also be of interest to my guests to participate in a flight, as an additional event. As for all that I offer to my guests (from mattresses to restaurant recommendations), the same holds true in this case: everything has to be tested first. It spontaneously worked out yesterday and I could go for a flight. My last flight dates back to 2015 and it was to New York - not that I had been flying on a daily basis before, but I have to admit that I missed it a little. So I have been really excited about this opportunity to fly and it has been spectacular! Flying in such a small machine with two seats has been a new experience for me, and I think that it's even more exciting than being in a passenger plane (the flight has unfortunately been shorter as well. Further, getting into a plane and getting off after a few hours e.g. in a much warmer country is appealing,too). But the feeling of freedom in the air and the excitement are always the same and that's why I love to fly.
It's very interesting to see known territory from above. This is Igelsberg:
You can even spot my house on this one:
Again ... you can see how the village is embedded into the forest.
The industrial area of Freudenstadt (I was too slow to take a pic of the market place):
The airplane. We had a speed of 200 km/h and were around 500 metres above the ground, if I remember correctly. The pure flight time was only 16 minutes - much to see in little time. It's not even expensive to participate in a flight. I will lay out information material in the lodge soon.
I am still amazed by this experience. Thank you for the flight and the tour, Mr. Pfau. And thank you for the idea, Paul.
