The Fascinating North Atlantic
Still a thrill after countless of crossings
Although the summer season is short up north, the days are long, with 20 to 24 hours of sunlight in June and July. If the weather is good, you can easily fly three four-hour legs in a day, though most pilots prefer to stop and smell the sheep.
As this column is being written, I’m contracted to cross the Atlantic with a client at least once this summer, this time we’re headed for Vienna, Austria. After 25 years, you’d think it would get old, but it never does.
