Weather
At this time of year we start to feel a hint of winter with some lingering nuances of the summer. The higher mountains start to take on a spectacular mantle of new snow whilst the forests below offer a supplementary riot of bronzes, reds and gold’s to contrast with the usual greens of the pine forests. The temperature is usually quite comfortable but can sometimes be a little fresh without being actually cold. Flying conditions are perfect for buoyant thermic air but still allow our passengers to take the controls and become the pilot !
