It was a very gray day when I went up in the air for a local flight to keep my currency up-to-date. I tuned into the tower frequency of Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and noticed that it wasn’t too busy. A typical case of fingers crossed, asked for permission to enter the Amsterdam sector, and got it! Of course I want to share this experience with you. This flight ends with 3 low approaches over the airfield of Hilversum as Touch & Go is because of the very dry period still not permitted.
