In this episode, (an adventure filmed in “the before times” of 2019), we’re hosted by our friends at Hässlö Flygförening, just outside of Stockholm and have the opportunity to fly a 1941 Klemm 35 WWII German Air Force warbird trainer.
Hässlö Flygförening is located at Stockholm Västerås Airport (ICAO code ESOW) about an hour drive from Stockholm. With more than 600 members they are the largest flying club in northern Europe.
Being so close to Stockholm, while still keeping out of the more congested airspace around the big international airport, HFF is a great place to start your flying adventure in Sweden.
They have access to many different airplanes to rent, together with a group of highly competent instructors ranging from airline captains to aerobatic instructors.
For pilots visiting Sweden, they can assist with anything from information, checkout flights on new types to the paperwork needed to act as PIC on a Swedish registered plane without an EASA license.

I am a “weekend warrior” private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience – I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve…. Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share.
Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.
