We filed our flight plan for 8 am departure out of Morocco . We arrived at the airport before 7 am to get fuel and leave for Mandelieu (LFMD), France.

They told us there are no avgas and we need to go to Rabat airport (GMME).

 

After a short 20 minutes flight, we landed at Rabat and requested fuel. To our surprise they rolled two 55 gallon drums with avegas , and a hand pup to give us fuel.

Our flight to Mandelieu was very smooth at flight level 110, until we got to Eastern part of Spain . It was a little bumpy over the mountain and we lost radio communication due to mountain, but it only lasted about 35 minutes.

 

Flight over the Mediterranean see was breathtaking. We landed at Mandelieu about 6:45 pm.
