For fans of mountain flying, I posted this video clip on HBYPS Flug 2013 11 27 - YouTube.


The caption reads:
Published Nov. 27th, 2013.
Flight with my DF-02 (HB-YPS) from Mollis airfield. It was really cold, some 10 Centigrades below at 6000 ft.
Take off / landing on runway 19.
The last part shows the complete final approach and is rather lengthy (for pilots who want to land here).
There are two cranes on final which are better avoided.
Take care: Sound at the end of the clip is rather loud (serves to show the noise of my two stroke engine)!

Nice that you had a calm day. A little bit of wind with that terrain would make for a pretty sporty ride.

Yes I was getting a bit of the pucker factor before you decided to descend. I'll stick to Florida
Was thinking the same thing when viewing your flight over that long stretch of trees, loved both yours and his video's but think I'd pass on either :)
