Last flights over Greece and short field take-offs

kopais_asg

More than 4 hours of flying today to complete the amount of hours needed to keep my licence valid before leaving Greece. Great flights with friends and with my former instructor.
Among other things, we tried several short field take-offs on a grass runway at Kopaida. The principle of the grass short field take-offs is to keep the nose gear light during acceleration and then ease back and fly in the ground effect in a shallow climb. You can actually feel the ground effect!
Kopaida is a small flying paradise; a quite place where you can meet some old fashioned aviation enthusiasts, away from the city noise. We didn’t have much time to spare there, but it was awesome!

On our way back, we flew 5,000ft above Thiva admiring a great view.
