Whole morning above our heads, students pilots of some Swiss aero company practice.
Is that wise?
Why they do not exercise over uninhabited areas, rather than over our houses?

Good question! 😕
At least it gave you the opportunity of getting those nice shots! 🙂

Yes, that’s true! 🙂

I’m glad they get a chance to practice before flying me anywhere.

But…over my head?!

If there’s an airport nearby with training capacity, they’ll need to practice multiple landings and the best way is to fly circuits…

Yeah, they just do this! They were flying very low and in circles. We are a city of 70,000 people on the coast. We have the airport 15 km from the city, landing numerous planes because we are tourist resort on the Mediterranean. They can easily circle over the sea or over the fields where there is airport, why over houses. Normally planes do not fly that way.

Most holiday flights will be straight-in or out with no circuits. This looks a large plane which will fly a large circuit. The runway alignment may mean overflight of part of the city. When training they will practice unusual failures to the aircraft which may make their circuits larger than standard…

Accidents can always happen. I think our airport gets good money for it. 😉

Flying anywhere is pretty cool. Two weeks to go 😉

About flight training. When I worked for our national airline company Finnair, I heard that Swiss commercial pilots must also train for military air planes; was it true or not, I do not have any idea. I do not know what the situation today is.
