    Getting busy!

    Back on tour after a few days off and now getting some flying in as the busy seasons hots up! Yesterday was a 3 leg day starting from Rome Ciampino after a beautiful evening eating dinner overlooking the Lake Albano - an excellent start to the tour. From Rome we flew to Venice, with great views of the lagoon on the flight in, then on to Geneva before the final leg to Farnborough.  Arrived quite late in Farnborough but stayed in our usual hotel and met up with some other company colleagues for a drink.  Later we were joined by some Gulfstream pilots from our sister company in the States.  How do I know they were Gulfstream pilots?  Well, they always tell you within a few seconds of saying hello!

    Today was just a 2 leg day, flying up to Londonderry to drop some golfers, and then down to Pontoise which is on the outskirts of Paris.  A few thunderstorms around Paris today, so it was a challenging VOR approach to runway 23 (an offset approach) whilst under some heavy rain!  A nice relaxed evening in the hotel after a gentle jog through the park, and nicely set for another 3 leg day tomorrow - Northolt, Basle and then back to Farnborough!
