Lovely Quebec and our Launching off Point

By Art on (with 0 comments)

Our Hotel in Quebec Yep, made it up to Quebec today and met up with the rest of our group. The guys at Atlas Aviation Center in Portsmouth, NH fixed our fuel probe issue and had our airplane ready to go by 8:00 am this morning. What a terrific team with world class (and fast!) service. We owe you guys! The flight up to Quebec was in clear sunny skies at 21,000 and we had an uneventful flight (yeah!).

At the pilot's meeting this afternoon, we all decided to push on for Iceland tomorrow instead of spending the night in Greenland. There's a weather front moving in and we want to get to Iceland before it might impact our flight. Tomorrow morning we'll leave Quebec for Goose Bay, tanker up with full fuel and fly almost 1440 miles across the North Atlantic to Reykjavik, Iceland. We'll be wearing our Immersion suits just in case but we don't plan to land the airplane anywhere but on dry land in Iceland!

We'll catch up with all of you tomorrow night as we'll be spending three days in Iceland touring the island and eating fish! For tonight, we will have a lovely dinner at our Fairmont hotel here in historic Quebec (celebrating their 400 year birthday!).
