This week we intensify the circuits around Locarno to be ready for our first Solo flight, during the week we went to the official alternate and done our first navigation flight, we fly to Lugano (LSZA) land and fly back to Locarno.
After the flight to Lugano we started to plan the next flight to Sion, Samedan, Bern and the VOR to SRN, in fact yesterday we had the opportunity to fly to SRN VOR trough the Maggiore Lake but with a lot of turbulence during the whole flight.
It was very interesting to see how it works a VOR but also other aspects like the low flight trough the Padania, Milano Information busy frequency and the way back to Locarno passing the CTR of Lugano with a strong North wind, at the end it was a really nice experience.
At the end i wasn't so nervous, maybe more when i touched down and I realized what I did but everything went well thanks to HB-PHV!!
Next week we expect some adverse weather, first with some snow fall and than some strong north wind, let's see when we can execute our navigational flight around Switzerland to keep you update with a lot of pictures and video.
P.S. about my first Solo, I had my GoPro with me but I realized that I did switch off (low battery) after the first circuit with the instructor!!! ahhhhh
