Around the world in Cessna 182

January 04, 2004
Oslo, Norway (ENGM) to Inverness, Scotland (EGPE)

Flying in Europe is proving to be problematic due to the 8 hour time difference. I was ready at 14:30 local time this morning (06:30 my time), and was barely able to catch one hour of daylight. Even that did not help much as it was snowing on and off in Oslo so I did not get to see the city. Maybe I should just resign to doing quite a few flights in the darkness and not see much of the scenery. On a positive note, as I am moving further south, the days will be getting longer very fast.

Today's flight from Oslo to Inverness was just over 4 hours long following the heading of 258 at the altitude of 10,000 ft. Around Oslo it was snowing on and off, but it cleared up while flying over the mountains. I run into thick cloud cover around Haugesund. Of course the weather in Inverness was rainy, but I guess it is like that 99% of the time.

The approach and landing were easy, vectors, then visual landing. It was somewhat foggy, but the visibility was still good. I left the plane at the parking and went to deserved rest. It might be few days before I continue my trip.
