Vuelo para los niños - charity flight across Spain

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

On the 22nd of September I will be setting off on an unsupported flight from Santander in the North of Spain to Motril in the South to raise money for Save the Children.

I would be grateful for any advice from those who have made unsupported multi stop flights.

I also need advice about insurance for flying in Spain.

Any help would be gratefully accepted.

Hoorah! Wheels and handles fitted. Ready for those long walks from landing to petrol-station / bed / food!

Getting excited now. I will be on the overnight ferry to Santander on Tuesday.

Thanks to everyone who has sponsored me. If you haven't already, please do! Here's the link. Just a couple of quid would help towards my (admittedly ambitious) target of £5,000 for Save the Children.

You know that saying about being on the ground wishing you were in the air and vice versa? Well I had the vice versa today....mid afternoon on the Spanish plain near Segovia. Bucking bronco thermals! Flippin' scary!

My fully loaded V5 weighs over 40 kg so I could have done with a bigger wing. Long takeoff runs!

It's raining now and I'm stuck in a village in the middle of nowhere.

Legs are killing me after one too many failed launches in ridiculously variable wind this morning.

Ok. Moan over! Here's looking forward to a better day tomorrow.
