Hi!

I just wanted to share some pics from yesterday with you.
They are taken at Sola Lufthavn (ENZV)
----------------------------------------------------------
Yesterday I got to fly in a Saab Safir. This was my first opportunity to fly in a small single engine prop (Thanks to Rune Bjørkli, a friend of mine).
It was an amazing experience both for me and Rune. We had about half an hour with flying each. The pilot took rolls, loops stalls, immelmanns and a split s. An amazing experience. The most amazing thing was to experience 4Gs, I was really pressed down into the seat. I also got to try flying myself, which was interesting (easier than I thought) After the flight my stumack was quite upset, but I guess that is something that happens the first times when flying acrobatics.



Enjoy the pics !!(sorry for .jpg compression)
And please comment!

Quite old fashioned cockpit (just the way I like it)

Very cool Oystein! I enjoy seeing people's "first flights!" Will you be having lessons then?

Thanks for the kind replies! It was an amazing experience indeed, especially when experiencing the g-forces during loops, rolls++(4 g at the most) It was also very cool to dive directly towards the ocean when doing the stalls...
I am considering starting to take flying lessons, but it is very expensive....will at least fly more in the future.

And, yes I live only 5 km. from Stavanger, and have been at Tou many times..
