VFR Night

Yesterday we finished the most of my VFR-Night traning, total of 4 hours. The weather was quite good with CAVOK and no wind basicly. However the runway was coverd with an inch of ice, witch proved to make taxying somewhat more exciting than usual. Here are some pictures:

>>> ENAL (AALESUND/VIGRA RWY 07/25) <<< METAR 251820Z 23053G84KT

Theres no place for airplanes in the skies over the western coastlines of Norway today, gusts up to 84 knots would lift bascily small planes of the ground where they stand.

Winter in Norway = IMC

Its December, and December in Norway means IMC, so no flying now for a while. I managed to fly 3 hours of VFR Night last week but now its christmas time and Il guess i will have to finish my night qualification next year.

However this is a perfect oportunity to study! I came across this site witch explains a timed VOR approach very well, so if you have Microsoft FSX or any other flight simulation software i suggest you take a look at the link here.

I'm also thinking about creating a video that explains the VOR approach, stay tuned!

Meanwhile heres a picture of an accident on ENHA (Hamar Airport) in Norway. This was right before we were about to take off and the micro airplane of type Zephyr Faeta made a hard landing and jumped back in the air when the left wing stalled and out in the forest it went.. Nobody was harmed in this accident.
LN-YCW in the hills..
