Flying near window seat :)






Repubblica.it published a wonderful slideshow about 28 photos taken from plane's window seats...

This is the main reason why you MUST always be seated near windows :)

Simulation of a real flight




In February, I made a business trip in Naples, of course by plane :)

In a rainy Saturday, I decided to simulated my trip to Naples, in my Learjet 45.

So, I planned a Torino Caselle - Napoli Capodichino flight.

This is the flight plan:

LIMF SID LAGEN UL50 ELB UM729 PNZ STAR LIRN


I flew OFFLINE, so no IVAO ATC...

It was raining...and it will be raining during the entire flight...


Takeoff from runway 36...


...and, through the Initial Climb Procedure, I reached VOR TOP


Then I decided to use the LAGEN 7L SID, which took me from VOR TOP to FIX LAGEN, the initial fix of my route towards LIRN


Inbound Elba Island


and then straight towards PONZA, the initial approach fix.

My final runway was 24...The STAR begins over PNZ and ends over POMIGLIANO VOR.


Over POM VOR, I began the ILS-Z procedure towards runway 24...


Hard landing, but I'm still alive :)



I will come back to Turin soon...

Here is the video:



Dedicated to my traveling friends, Silvio and Claudio, that like my hobby so much :)

Air traffic in the Europe's sky




A nice video about an animation made by National Air Traffic Services, which shows us the air traffic over Europe, mainly focused on Heathrow Airport, in London.
