An aviation expedition to Western Europe on a small aircraft.


Piper PA-28 Warrior, registration G-FLAV.


7-22 May 2022


The route and the schedule are hard to predict due to weather and other conditions. An approximate and very optimistic plan is below. Dates specified are the earliest possible and, most probably, will be shifted to later ones. Some legs would probably be dropped to return the aircraft on time. At least one landing in every country (UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Luxembourg, France, Guernsey) is desired. A reserve day will hopefully cover some delays.
