Wiener Neustadt to Wildspitze and back

A potential record day in the Austrian Alps, so set a 1170km out and return to central Switzerland. In the event climbs were on the weak side, averaging 3.5 for the day and beyond the Wildspitze there were not many clouds. The favoured route on the North side of the main divide was almost completely blue so ran the South side both ways. Turned back at 400km from Wiener Neustadt.Still a good flight at just under 9 hours and 824kms.

36R at Wiener Neustadt


The furthest point just South of the Wildspitze


Best cloudbase around 12000' and 3.5kt averages kept our speed back to around 100kph, not good enough for the planned flight. Maybe tomorrow?
