if I land at Caen (for example) and clear customs etc there, landing anywhere else in France is just another flight from A to B - no customs required?
since France and Spain are both Schengen, can I then simply fly from anywhere to anywhere in either country, or do I need to clear customs in Spain?
sort of similar question, do I need to leave France from a customs airfield, or is that concept just a UK thing?
yes, I know Flight Plans will be need ed
a) for all FIR boundary crossings
b) all flights in Spain in controlled airspace
thank you all for your advice (and patience)
3b: I'd be tempted to file a flight plan for any XC flight in Spain.
There are big empty bits, big mountainous bits and big desert bits too.
It is also very hot and cold in places.
Its also a fantastic place to tour. The Biscay coast is amazing.
