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.

Another first: Getting an airspace entry clearance on the ground

Hugo and I climbed back on board of 90B and taxied up the hillside towards runway 06. On the hold short it was time to call Newcastle Radar to get a clearance for their CTA. We got our VFR release a minute later and it was time to go.

After flying over the first impressions of the highlands for an hour we made it to Fife Glenrothes. But that is another story…
