My friend Nick flew with me and our wives to Rotterdam a week ago. We went to The Hague for lunch and a quick visit to the delightful Mauritshuis Musuem. It’s such a lovely museum: full of treasures, including Vermeer’s Girl with the Pearl Earring, but small enough so that it doesn’t give you culture indigestion. This was my first passenger flight with the new R9 avionics and you can see me checking the manual on a few things on the long autopilot flight over the North Sea. Nick made this video with his very shiny new HD170 helmet camera.
That’s what personal aviation is all about. Nicely done!
What a plane! Great avionics! (I'm still using steam gauges. Our DA40 has a G1000, but its diesel engine doesn't have enough oomph).
Also very well filmed. If Nick wants to come fly with me, I'd be happy to oblige! 🙂

Hi Hani, yes the R9 is pretty cool. It does some good stuff and makes life easier. I would prefer it with the satellite weather download – that's a big boost to safety. I keep wanting to come visit Geneva. I got as far as Annecy last year but it will happen soon! 🙂 Matthew
Any time Matthew! Just let me know. You're very close with Annecy 🙂
