Where I stayed
What I did
Wild coast of Salento
Trying to catch up now while Im in Florida trying to sell the House.
Flying from North to south in Switzerland takes about 20minutes in the SX and one gets really busy with all the Airspace restrictions ,MOA,s CTR,s TMA,s , so it is a real Challenge in a Quick Airplane.
Went to Italia to see Carlo .he lives in the Salento Area , the Heel side of the Adriatic See and I really liked the area a lot being there about 30 years ago, where the same house I looked at then is still sitting on a cliff about 8o feet above the Water and the house still not finished only the Walls and roof is done, and nobody knows anything about it
I really like to find out and would if possible by the property and finish
it which then would make and prefect Vacation spot or maybe even more.
I parked the SX in Brindisi , parking and landing fees are very cheap , but NO AVGAS here and in Foggia about 100 miles to the North they charged $18 for gallon, and no wonder there is no General Aviation in Italy.
At the Lecce Airport not far from my friend Carlo I inquired about Hangar space , beautiful built out Airport and Terminal with everything in Place built with EU money but the Airport is closed waiting for permission form the Goverment to open it.
When I asked an mechanic how the Airplane he was working on got here, he told me "special permission and we only fly when nobody is around " viva Italia".
end of October , it is getting cold in Switzerland and it is time to go to Florida to sell my House there and catch up with everything there while my SX is parked in Altenrhein LSZA Switzerland.
