Shanna and I recently took a week-long trip to Iceland, where I was lucky enough to get some flying in. When we’d stopped over in Reykjavik for a couple days during a previous trip to Europe, I noticed how many light aircraft were in the air. The landscape is so weird and compelling that getting up in the air became a mandatory part of our return to Iceland.
Unfortunately, there’s not a ton of information about flying in Iceland on an FAA certificate. I found a 2004 thread on the PPRuNe forum that didn’t offer much, and another article that had some useful info on where to fly, but prices & recommendations from 1998. Eventually, I just scraped around the English-language version of the ICAA website (the Icelandic Civil Aviation Authority) and emailed them directly, asking what I needed to do to fly there.
