at Stockerau Airport,
My visit on 14 Aug 2012 allowed me to fly a C172 with my cousin's son-in-law. A beautiful little airport with private flying club. A mix of sailplanes, motorigliders and powered aircraft. The C172 (actually an F172, built in France under license) rents for 195 Euros/hr wet. Fuel sold for 2.45 Euros/litre. We are so lucky in Canada. We flew west following the Danube to Melk,dd a 180, then all the way to Vienna as far a ATC wuld let us. Then back to Stockerau. A beautiful trip to remember. Upon landing, enjoyed a few cold local beers, right out of a vending machine. Now where would you find that in Canada.
