Mooniacs interested in a flight across the North Atlantic

 

On October 24, 2014 the weather is better than expected, so some Mooneys fly to the new airport of Kassel. When the third Mooney has landed the airport controller asked if there will be more Mooneys coming? Finally there were 7 Mooneys. Other Mooniacs came by car, our president David Kromka as well. In the evening there were 18 participants in the Hotel and restaurant Schaeferberg near the airport. After a good dinner Rainer and Birgit Hutz talk about their flight across the North Atlantic in 2009.

What is so fascinating about the North Atlantic, in how far is such a flight „dangerous“, what do you need to prepare, which survival equipment do you need, what about our Mooneys, which routings to take, how to give a position report, how much time do you need ... For both this flight was the greatest experience of their life, unbelievable beautiful and unforgettable, they would do it again.

The Mooniacs are very interested, there are many questions and discussions. Rainer concludes: „When you are well prepared and plan enough time and do not need to be at a certain place in due time because you have prebooked a hotel or any other appointments are waiting for you, this flight is not more dangerous than other flights with single engine planes.“

David askes all those present who would take part in a flight across the North Atlantic in 2016. More and more hands go up, most of the pilots present can imagine doing this flight themselves.

At night at the hotel bar they already start planing and discussing the flight.

Next step is a Sea Survival Training in March 2015 in Bremen.
