We're always on the lookout for flying adventure features to inspire and entertain FLYER readers.

So, if you're planning, or have taken a trip, whether big or small, that you think other pilots would like to read about in FLYER, then drop me a line at ed.hicks@seager.aero and tell me about your idea.

Guernsey
Used my Flyer free landing voucher to visit Guernsey for the first time on Sept. 27th.
Everyone and especially the approach controller where so friendly and helpful that I was made to feel really welcome. Even better no handling fee from ASG for my single day visit and the round the island bus tour cost £1.

The furthest ‘south’ I’ve got to has been La Rochelle. My plan for a 2 week break in August is:
Sherburn
Troyes (customs/immigration)
Annecy
Cannes
Venice
Friedrichshafen
lelystad
Sherburn

Any comments or thoughts? Very early days planning. How tricky is the approach to Annecy for example?

Thanks!

Nothing particularly difficult or testing about any of these (Though it must be said I was in the RH seat for Annecy, so it was unlikely to cause me any issues). The low level route offshore Cannes is worth the trip alone.

Troyes
Annecy
Cannes
Venice

For Venice-Friedrichsafen (VFR), we did this in May over two legs, in a 182, in reasonable weather for the first 2/3rd of the trip, a bit rainy arriving at Friedrichsafen. Our route was:
Leg 1 - Venice-Voslau, routing over Trieste, south end of Ljubljana CTR, then pretty much direct from Celje to Voslau.
Leg 2 - Voslau-Friedrichshafen, routing overhead Wels, then direct Friedrichsafen with great views of the Alps all the way on our left (through the rain, despite them being lit by sun).
Very scenic all the way, views of rolling Slovenian hills made me want to revisit on foot to do some wandering.
