Congrats to our N Flight Cam winner!

Thank you to everyone who entered to win the N Flight Cam! Mitch Ellis is the winner this time, but stick around because we are going to give another away soon! You all have made this blog a fun, inspiring place to talk aviation and it’s about to get much more exciting! We are beginning to plan the the transatlantic flight and it feels good to get started. Anyone know which airport is in the photo? It’s one of our stops along the route!

Here’s a great quote from Emerson to start your day off right…

“Don’t be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.What if they are a little course, and you may get your coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice. Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. Hi Amelia, indeed this is Orly airport (LFPO) but this airport as well as Paris Charles de Gaulle (LFPG) is not open to Genaral Aviation but only to commercial airlines traffic.

    You can use Le Bourget airport (LFPB), where Charles Lindbergh landed in May 1927. Today it’s more a bizjet airport but still open to General Aviation.The landing fee is a little bit expensive.

    If you want to use a more friendly General Aviation airport, close to Paris, I would recommend Toussus le Noble (LFPN). It is very well equipped with to parallel runways and instrument approaches . It’s the airport where I fly.

    You can have all the relevant information on French airports, on the French AIP site

    Hope to welcome you in Paris next summer !

  2. I had a funny feeling that I might win when I entered. The feeling was one that contained a bit of fear; for I knew that the N flight cam that took part in the recreation of the flight of Amelia Rose Earhart would bestow upon me a responsibility to pay it forward, and dare to follow a dream.
    Thank you,
    Mitch
