Norway 2008, kick-off

With 4 months to go until fellow aviator Anders and myself start our longest trip so far…. in a Cessna, we had little kick-off at Café Valvet with a Cappuchino and a Dammsugare

  After discussing a few different alternatives we came up with the following routing:


From To Hdg Dist
6 segment path: 1257 nm
Vass  ENGM 281°  (W) 208 nm
ENGM ENVA 358°  (N) 196 nm
ENVA ENBO 19°  (N) 245 nm
ENBO ESPA 115°  (SE) 214 nm
ESPA ESNN 216°  (SW) 219 nm
ESNN VASS  175°  (S) 174 nm

It will take us from Vassunda to Gardermoen outside Oslo, up along Gudbrandsdalen to Trondheim before following the scenic coast until we reach Bodo where our intention is to stay for two nights at the Radisson SAS Bodö and experience the Air Show that is currently in the planning stages. The return will take us back over the border to Luleå and one of the longest runways in Sweden before heading down the coastline via Sundsvall and back to Vassunda. Total flying time is expected to be around 15,5-16 hours.


A Garmin 1000? No, two computers containing our master plan

More will follow as we get closer to depature!

    I am soooo much looking forward to this trip… And who needs a Garmin 1000 as we will have our four(!) moving map displays (and two “ordinary” gps:es) running in the cockpit – The most hightech veteran cessna in the world I recon. I bet we will get lost anyway ;-p

    varför inte en tur till Stauning? Trevligt ställe, kan rekommendera det ;D Iaf under deras KZ Rally, även om jag inte varit på det själv, bara på preview;n.

    Annars låter det som en väldigt trevlig tripp. 🙂

    Voj, voj, det kallar jag för en “Resa”.

    Behöver ni en sponsor, barlast, fotograf, trevlig resekompis, tolk, (har jobbat både i Norge och Danmark) så ställer jag gärna upp.

    Jag beundrar unga herrar som förmår att ta ut svängarna.

    Om ikke, trevlig resa.

    P S Behöver ni transport till och från Vassunda så ställer jag upp (att få vinka av er smakar ju lite fågel, ändå). D S
