Flight time to Iraklion was 2hrs 50m, nothing around except a couple of F16s also flying VFR but we didn’t see them. It was really windy on arrival but Patrick did a good landing, the nice long runway there helped
A short hop to Sitia where we had a full-on cross wind of 16-18 knots for landing: I closed my eyes and Patrick carried out an interesting landing! All down safely, we were directed to the Apron in front of the new terminal building still under construction – a huge area and we were the only occupants! Handling agents Anna and her colleague (Nicos?) aided putting the ‘plane to bed and then took us to the office where Maria sorted out the paperwork and phoned for a Taxi. Everyone is so helpful.
The Hotel was situated on the beach front with wonderful views across the harbour and bay from our balcony. Time to dip our toes in the sea and then another fine meal and well-earned cold beer rounded off yet another eventful day. We are sure that there will be lots more over the coming weeks!
We crossed the Isle of Peloponnisos to get to Crete:
- What is the highest point on the Island?
- What famous canal is just to the East of the Island?
