Little trip: Lelystad EHLE - Rouen LFOP

I did a little trip yesterday. Flying conditions were actually very nice! We went to Rouen LFOP. My friend flew the outbound leg VFR, and I did the return flight IFR. Rotterdam ATC is always very friendly and let us fly over the city center at 1000ft

The Zeeland Bridge, longest bridge in The Netherlands

Neeltje Jans, an artificial island constructed to facilitate the construction of the Oosterschelde dam

Flying along the beach near Oostende EBOS

The first snow I saw this season. Haute-Normandie
Short final RWY04 LFOP
Parked in front of the Terminal building. We where the only visitors…

The airport restaurant 777 serves traditional french food. They offer a 3 course lunch for 14EUR.
It was very good for an airport restaurant!

The Belgium Airforce also knows about the Rouen Airport restaurant. They flew in with their Agusta helicopters for lunch

The return flight was done IFR at FL090. The temperature was -6°C. We had a 30kts headwind.

At FL050 near Hilversum EHHV in the Schiphol TMA.
Having an IR gives access to the large class A airspace in The Netherlands. Here we are at FL050 near Hilversum EHHV in the Schiphol TMA.
My mate said this was the first time he could see this lake (Loosdrechtse plassen) in a single view. VFR you’re limited to 1500ft here.
Schiphol Approach was very helpful and vectored us to Lelystad.
Officially you need PRNAV approval to fly in the Schiphol TMA. But nobody really cares. I hope it will stay like that.
