Helgoland reopens after Corona!

As you all know, travailing in times of Corona virus is heavily restricted. So for general aviation as well. In times it went even as far as to close entire airfields!

But at least in Germany thing started to open up again and travailing and flying becomes more and more possible. That said, Helgoland was the first German island to reopen for daytrippers again and so our family decided to head there on Whitmonday.

It was beautiful weather with no clouds and light winds from the north east. While climbing 90B to FL65 we went just above a small inversion layer and headed towards the North Sea. As expected Helgoland was quite busy so we checked in early for landing and after a busy approach we got almost the last parking sport available.

With the ferry we than set over to the main island and it became time to hunt for a fish sandwich and after lunch we began the ascend of the rock. And since Hugo and I had been on Helgoland before, we could act as a guide for Mom and Dirk and show them around a little bit.

On top of the rock we decided to do the grand hike all around it which would also bring us along the “Lange Anna” (long Anna) and the many bird breading colonies.

Helgoland has a to rich history to tell all. But I one does the hike along the cliff edge foot path, he or she will learn a lot! Long Story short, Helgoland is worth a visit!
