Happy August

I had almost forgot about my blog, for the entire summer. But now I will try and keep you guys updated on a more regular basis, especially since this fall will include a lot of stress related to the start of CPL in February. I will write about the application process, the visa process +++. More on that later.

This summer I got to travel A LOT. I traveled all over Norway with a friend for 5 days. I flew 24 flights in 5 days. On the Dash 8 Q100/Q200/Q400. So much fun! I even got to ride jumpseat on some of the flights. If you want to check out some cool photos from my trip, visit my Instagram profile http://instagram.com/cecebg# (from the seatbelt and onward)

My favorite shot is of the Q100 propeller in the sunset, flying from Bodø (ENBO) to Mo i Rana (ENRA)

So far, 2013 has brought me to the US 3 times, and a few trips around Europe as well. In May, I also went on a day trip to Barcelona with some friends. I went to Stockholm for the first time in June to shoot a video for Disney’s new Pixar project “Planes” and on my day off I flew off to Helsinki, Finland for the day, just for fun 🙂 I got to sit in the jumpseat on the B737-800 from Kristiansand to Oslo, and I rode the B717 (Airline: Blue1) for the first time in my life! Awesome airplane!

In August I haven’t traveled anywhere but in September, me and some friends at the Scandinavian avgeek forum Flyprat (www.flyprat.no) have chartered a SAS MD-80 that will take us on a SAS MD80-farewell tour across Scandinavia. SAS is retiring the MD80 this October. In November I’m going on a long weekend trip to Dublin!

Thanks for still following my blog (those of you who still are)
I will not wait 3 months until the next blog, that’s for sure 🙂

Lufthansa Airbus 380-800 til OSL

I anledning “only God knows what” kommer en av Lufthansens lufthvaler (Airbus 380) til Oslo Lufthavn Gardermoen (OSL) 15.september 2010 i 11-tiden. Hvis jeg går glipp av dette eventet, tror jeg ikke at jeg har noe å leve for lenger. Nesten. Takket være Scanair-forumet fikk jeg øynene opp for denne begivenheten. Tusen takk!

Lufthvalen i all hennes prakt

Derfor har jeg allerede nå begynt å kikke på flybilletter fra Kristiansand Kjevik til OSL, med litt forskjellige routinger. Det helt klart enkleste (og billigste) ville helt klart vært å gå for Norwegian t/r KRS-OSL for 400 kroner, men det er helt klart et kjedelig alternativ. Derfor kikket jeg litt rundt på wideroe.no

Under ungdomsbilletter åpenbarte det seg et paradis for flyfreaks som meg selv. Routingen Kristiansand-OSL (med SAS) og retur via Bergen med Widerøe til 1200,- er faktisk ikke så ille. Dessuten ligger det an til en ny flytype mellom BGO og KRS, nemlig De Havilland DHC-8 Series 300. Great success! Mye mer spennende routing, og mer flying – ultimat kombinasjon.

Da ønsker jeg meg selv en riktig god tur! Har leseren(e) min(e) noen flyplaner i nærmeste fremtid?
