9:30am Fly to La Cerdanya mountain airport and go hiking - back by 6pm

Mountain Time!  We'll be making a quick flight to the closest ski resort airport in the Pyranees. No snow yet so we'll hike for a couple of hours and then probably replace those valuable calories lost at a lodge or at the very nice small airport restaurant in La Cerdanya.

 

It will be an easy relaxed flight through the mountain pass.  Smix, the seaplane, has done it several times before.   One time though, we lost an oar over the ski slopes.  I am sure some skier must have wondered when s/he found an oar lying on the snow....

 

Costs, it will entail about 2 hours of flying or 120 litres at about 2.70/litre plus airport fees and some oil costs.  So cost will be EUR[masked] per person depending on if we can keep the gas guzzling to a minimum or not.  Now you know why I love to have a full airplane and share expenses!  I can't wait for electric motors!

    Super could not have been better. Nice easy drop over the mountains and some great hiking. The way back was some more exciting flying low over the lakes and rivers.

    This was a super flight to Cerdanya where we got a chance to hike up the mountains and see the beautiful scenery. The flight was about an hout each way and on the return we flew low over the rivers and lakes. Spectacular sights. Martin is the most interesting person to fly with and I will do it again soon.
