What is “Discovering Eagle” all about?

The “Discovering Eagle” project has been invented by Florian Meissner as means of documenting and sharing his love for aviation and traveling. He likes to share what he experiences and hurdles he has to take to fly his airplane to far of destinations and meet new people.

While traveling all over Europe the main goal of “Discovering Eagle” is to brand a journey one will do only once in a lifetime. In the footsteps of well-known aviators like Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Elli Beinhorn and Michael Grzimek he plans on not just fly to Africa, but even surround it!

On this website we like to document the planning process for such a feat and what Florian does in the meantime to prepare himself.

Since a project of the magnitude surely requires lots of money, please feel free to check out hour you can support us.

So after breakfast I gave Hugo a good walk on the beach and we assessed our options. Continue reading

Day 3: Currock Hill – Fife/Glenrothes

Meet and Greet in the Middle of Nowhere

After a really quiet night on the hilltop gliderfield in Currock Hill, Hugo and I waited for our friend Nick to come by. Nick is a flightsimulator pilot and strives to get his realworld license one day.

Together we headed to town and found a little coffee shop and had kind of a late breakfast. Then it was time to fly further north. Continue reading

Day 2: Clacton – Duxford – Currock Hill

Rude awakening in Clacton

Quite early in the morning we were woken up by a lot of cars that seemed to drive around the airfield. But after looking out of the tent we discovered that a flea market war set up right next door.
