Friday Night Flight: Cubs and Icebergs @ Iceland - 120600ZJUL19

Join us for this week's FNF!

Welcome to this week’s Friday Night Flight! After a great release, it is time to let loose and celebrate! We take this week’s FNF to a location not used before. You may know it for its beautiful hot springs, volcanoes and ice, but we know it for its amazing airports and awesome GA capabilities! We are, of course, talking about Iceland!

Please be aware the both Keflavik and Rekyavik airports will be open, with no inter-airport flying between the two permitted. You can find a full list of airports open towards the end of this post. Many airports only have tower, so please make sure you are acting appropriately on ground at all times with unicom.

What volcano erupted in 2010 causing air traffic chaos?

  • Öræfajökull
  • Edfell
  • Kalta
  • Eyjafjallajökull
  • Snæfellsjökull

Great, but do we have to fly the Xcub?

i’ve an idea for you that will be more realistic:
YMML-YPPH
YPPH-EGLL (overnight)
EGLL-BIKF

We can fly the TBM right?

Ye you can

we can fly every aircraft we want. But you’ll need to depart from a intl airport and need to do an international flight
and domestic flights can only be GA aircraft

I’m gonna do DEN-KEF at least once tommorow. See y’all then!

Hopefully we don’t see the “No small aircraft accepted” at airports even though that was the theme of the whole week :)

Iceland is a fun place to fly. Maybe I’ll fly in the WOW livery.

Only one airport will accept commercial aircraft, all the others will be GA. BIKF will likely be no GA during busy periods.

Wait, no terrain as well? Iceland is above 60°N degrees.

As well as what? And no, no terrain, however I can assure you it is great to fly around regardless. I scoped the whole are out!

The area around Iceland is beautiful to fly in IF, even without topography. I can’t imagine what it would look like with full terrain details, but maybe at some point in the future we’ll see that as well.

I just took off from Basel headed to Manchester from where I’ll fly to Reykjavik to he there just in time. I look forward to this event, what a great idea. Thank you.
