We departed Mandelieu on June 12th at 9:45 am. The forecast called for some high clouds and possible thunderstorm on the eastern side of Italy .

Due to high mountains at Italian Alps, we filed our flight plan for level 150 (15000 feet).  In Europe anything over 5000 feet is standard flight level with the altimeter setting of 29.92. They also give you the altimeter setting in Pascal, and you need to convert it to inches of mercury.        

 As we started to approach central Italy the clouds started to build at higher altitude. That is when we could appreciate our turbo system that allowed us to clime to 20000 feet or flight level 200.

We run into a bit of rain on our final approach, but it was nothing that could deter us from landing in beautiful Vienna .
