Today i made the second leg of my mumble test, unfortunately alone.

Well, it was a nice flight, but the landscape and weather was not as interesting as in the previous trip.
The flight from La Gomera to Gran Canaria led me around Teneriffe with its beautiful cliffs. I did again spot some birds flying. The navigation using ADF and VOR radials really did help in crossing the water areas.
When i arrived at gran Canaria, the weather on the west side was good, however the airport was covered in rain showers. Thus, i already expected an ILS approach, but i could divert to a smaller airfield (which was not on the atlas) a little west of GCLP, ICAO GCLB. There was a cart racing track there :)
I had 060@12 knots wind there which was not that easy to land (the maximum for the C182S is 15 knots! EDIT now, half an hour later we are at 14 knots. i was lucky it seems!).

The taxiway nearly killed me (the lines broke my wheels), so there is a scenery bug at that place.

Total Flight time was about 1:45, including preflight and getting frequencies of the navaids it took about 2:00.


I think i will do the next and probably last leg (maybe i divide it into two) brings us from Gran Canaria (GCLB, Ramp_3) east via Fuertaventura to Lanzarote (GCRR) which will take about 1:30 flight time.
Most probably it will again occur next Friday, 19:00 UTC.

Hi Benih, sorry but virtual machines and compiling is a little above my expertise level, I wouldn't know where to start (and I'm on a 10yr old pc)

Took off from Juneau (PAJN) in the C172 (with 180hp engine and 26" bush tires) intending to reach Skagway (PAGY), but encountered a heavy headwind while still climbing. Broke cloud cover at about 6800 feet, but by that point my ground speed was down to about forty or fifty knots. I aborted the flight, but by that point the weather at Juneau had deteriorated to nearly zero (and the wind had picked up there as well), so I headed for Gustavus (PAGS) at about 7000 feet. Had some difficulty finding the runway as my cockpit fogged up completely during the descent (I may have hit some icing as well, but I'm not certain), but eventually managed to put it down in one piece.

The weather below about 6000 feet was absolutely nasty, but once I broke cloud cover I could see for miles.
