For oceanic flights in our single-engine airplane, we needed to wear an immersion suit. We also kept the emergency raft close for a quick egress if needed. Our departure out of Iqaluit was facilitated by a big opening in the cloud deck. We climbed initially to 19,000ft but found that we wouldn’t entirely clear the clouds. We then climbed to 21,000ft which kept us on top of mostly all clouds. Temperature was -30C but relatively warm in the cabin due to the sun and our suits.
Departure from Iqaluit:
VMC on top… and when the clouds under us cleared… we finally got to see the ocean and a few minutes later… Greenland!
Arrival Nuuk, Greenland:
Excellent dinning experience at the Hotel Hans Egede (hotel named after the missionary that founded Nuuk). Both the food as well as the view were extraordinary!
