Gliding over Finland

1 min read

Hi everyone!

On August 15th, I left to Lahti (Finland) where I will be studying and living for the next 4 months.

I was invited to spend the weekend at a friend's place in Jyväskylä, about 2 hours away from Lahti. On Saturday, I had the great opportunity to visit his flying club and airfield in Pieksämäki. After a short familiarization flight with him to explore the area and local procedures, I had the honor to fly his glider, twice. Finland is even more beautiful from the air, as you can tell from the pictures. We ended the day with a delicious dinner and traditional Finnish sauna.

Here are some pictures of my flights in Finland!

After the familiarization flight, it was time to fly my friend's glider, a Mini Nimbus. My first time in this glider and the first time I flew a glider with flaps solo. But what a great airplane to fly!

What an incredible scenery!

You can tell I was happy :) 

What an incredible first weekend here in Finland. On to the next adventures!

Have a great weekend!
