TBM Hop!

Hey everybody! Today I decided since it is GA featured day to take a TBM for a 25 minute hop! The flight was from Geneva (LSGG) to Bern (LSZB. There was a lot of turbulence!

Aircraft: TBM 930
Route: LSGG-LSZB
Flight time: 0:25

Here Iโ€™m starting my engines after getting the fuel ready for the flight.


In this photo this is seconds after rotating while battling winds.

I am making a turn towards Bern right over some hills.

This is at my cruising altitude of 12,000 feet, I cruised so low because of the amazing scenery!

This is me starting my descent during the sunset.

This is me turning on final towards the runway.

Here Iโ€™m battling 40 knot crosswinds while on final!

Here I am before touching down, buttered the landing by the way ๐Ÿ˜.

And last but not least, this is me parked with some mountains in the background.

Yes, the winds were crazy. But they calmed down and at the end turned out to be 6 knots.

Great photos! The scenery is amazing! The wind was pretty bad. I did a short flight from LSGG to Paris and landed in 45 knot cross winds!

The winds today all around the world are bad. The winds at 31,000 feet over PAOM were 95 knots, glad I got through that!

Yeah @Butter_Boi! Right now Iโ€™m cruising over Kansas on my way to Boston from LAX at 35,000 feet, and the winds are at 86 knots!
