Part one of flying the DA42 from London Wycombe to Helsinki International via a jet fuel stop at Billund Airport. Departing Wycombe before opening hours, including getting clearance over the phone from London Terminal Control. Cruising near the maximum certified altitude in the DA42 (Flight Level 170), then an ILS to near minimums at Billund Airport.

Video include set up and using the Garmin G1000 NXI, with also use of the weather radar and Garmin Connext Satellite Weather (really handy for long range weather and wind planning).
