For a long time already I had promised my family, who lives in the east of Belgium, to pay them a visit with the airplane. The prospect of also being able to take by 93 year old granny up in the skies was even more appealing !
My parents and my son joined me in the leg from Kortrijk (EBKT) to Budel (EHBD) in Holland, just accross the border with Belgium. I choose again the Piper Arrow IV OO-VHB.
It was a VFR flight via Mackel (MAK), Bruno (BUN) towards Budel (EHBD) without entering the prohibted area of Kleine Brogel. I called Brussels Departure to enter the Brussels TMA.
In Budel, my family was waiting eagerly to find out all about these small airplanes ! Of course, after some discussion, we convinced my granny to take the skies !
The return flight was great and uneventful, and soon we were back in Kortrijk where I landed on runway 06.
