Two months into being a qualified flight instructor, I was given the opportunity to fly the multi engined aircraft (DA42) since finishing my commercial training in December 2018. We were to man the static display at the Lleida Air Challenge 2019 the first weekend in June 2019.
Two instructors, two students and several hundred excited aviation enthusiasts wanting to jump into the aircraft over a 2 day weekend were it topped 30+ degrees on both days. It was a brilliant and exhausting weekend meeting many people from aviation enthusiasts to other pilots and firms displaying.
A quick montage of the flights there and back on the 1st and 2nd of June.
First and foremost, thanks to Lleida airport for having us and for the aerial photo in the featured image, looking forward to being back next year. My personal favourite displays were: Alex Balcells display in the Extra 330 and the Air Tractor water bombers of the Spainish Ministry of Environment.
A few of my own favourites from the weekend below.
