The last lag of our Tököl – Portoroz – Venezia – Portoroz – Tököl tour, 5th August 2011, back from LJPZ to LHTL. After refueling and detailed weather info from Portoroz tower, a very clean ride back, nice weather, familiar scenery.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

On the way back from Venezia, on our Tököl – Portoroz – Venezia – Portoroz – Tököl tour, 5th August 2011. Initially a lot of radio talk before engine start, as our flight plan filed in Portoroz in the morning did not seem sufficient for the LIPV people. The same route back as here: LIPV – JESOLO – CAORLE – GRADO – VICKY – PN1 – LJPZ.

The second leg of our tour, Tököl – Portoroz – Venezia – Portoroz – Tököl, between LJPZ and LIPV, on 5th August, 2011. Excellent weather, beautiful view over the coast. Our route was LJPZ – PN1 – VICKY – GRADO – CAORLE – JESOLO – LIPV. lot of radio communication & frequency changes, everybody being very helpful on the way.

The first leg of our tour, Tököl – Portoroz – Venezia – Portoroz – Tököl, between LHTL and LJPZ, on 4th August, 2011. The weather within Hungary was quite bad with rain, cumulonimbus on the way, which got a lot better after crossing over to Slovenia.

People in the airspace were very nice, especially Maribor approach & Portoroz approach. It runs out that the published VFR Route in Slovenia works quite well, although one does not have to divert to Velika Nedelja after ME4, but can go ME4 – ME1 – MS3 instead, which is shorter.
