This weekend, it was a sunny one. All planes in the Luxembourg club were booked, But I managed to secure a plane early Sunday morning at 08.30 am. My 7 year old son joined me enthusiastically as always and so we took off an headed to a place I never been to before, the airfield of Gouzy Sedan. We did not fly on a direct route, we first flew over our own house, but the rest of the family was still in bed….
we flew with a Cessna 172S , the LX-AIE. Our flight took some 45 minutes. We made a quick landing at the airfield…but no action or mouvement whatsoever at this early hour. Shortly afterwards we returned on a direct flight back to Luxembourg. There was some incoming traffic (Ryanair, Lufthansa) and so we had to make some 360’s over the Bravao waypoint, but the friendly controller arranged us a quick landing. My son loves this kind of little trips. We’ll likely repeat it to another destination.
