AIRBUS Aviation Calendar 2016 – all calendars are in stock!

All calendars are in stock! The most important and best news comes first: I have received all calendars this morning, just as I got back from my last rotation to Nairobi. It had been a long and exhaustive night flight from Kenya to Frankfurt, but I could not wait and jumped right into the car to head home. The calendars had just been delivered and I was super excited and anxious to see them! I am extremely happy with the results and hope you will be as well.

Lufthansa Airbus A321-200 Cockpit at night

Approach to Cairo at night on an Airbus A321-200

It has been a while since I last sat in the cockpit of an Airbus A321, after flying the type for about three years at the beginning of my career. So I was more than happy to say hello to my colleagues on a dead-head flight to Cairo.

After landing on runway 23 we had some very good views on the apron as we were taxing all the way … Continue reading

Lufthansa to Algiers – Part 2

I have been flying from Dresden to Frankfurt to continue further to Algiers, the capital of Algeria. After getting on board and taxing out, it was time to get airborne on Lufthansa Airbus A321-100 D-AIRB! The usual spotting location west of runway 18 was still pretty deserted as it was too early in the day for that spot. Departure was smooth and we were heading directly south towards the Alps and the view was really fantastic – the mountains were all covered in snow and even though it was early November it looked like a real winter wonderland already. Here is a view on the Aosta Valley and if you … Continue reading

Lufthansa to Algiers – Part 1

Have you ever been to Algeria? Did you know that it is the 10th largest country in the world? Me neither, but I was about to find out! I have been travelling to Algiers to attend a meeting of the IFALPA (International Federation of Airline Pilot Associations) Air Traffic Services Committee. About fifteen pilots from all over the world are coming together to discuss all kinds of aviation related matters that influence the work of a pilot and I am one of two representatives of our German pilot association Vereinigung Cockpit. But first I had to get to Frankfurt. I took the first flight of the day leaving at 06.15 … Continue reading
