In October I had a wonderful solo cross country flight in a Cessna 172SP. It was a great day with excellent weather! The Black Sea looked amazing! . . . . . . #flying #crosscountry #blacksea #sea #seaside #flight #fromabove #morninglight #morningsun #landscape at Costinești, Constanța

A flight from 2 days ago when we went over an entire mountain range from east to west. This is Vidra Lake in the Carpathian Mountains. Expect more pictures from this flight. You can even see on the left side the Transalpina Ski Resort. . . . . . . . . #landscapephotography #landscape #photography #lake #nature #mountains #ig_romania #romania #flying #worldfromabove #fromabove #Carpathianmountains at Vidra Lake

These pictures were taken a few days ago near Giurgeni- Romania. I was in a solo cross country flight on a beautiful autumn morning. This is the beautiful Danube river. It creates a beautiful ecosystem here near the Danube Delta. From here there are just a few more hundred kilometers until the river reaches the Black Sea. In the first picture you can see the small island of Braila. I hope in the next few days I will reach the coast of the Black Sea and I will post pictures from that flight. Sorry for the reflections but I couldn't control the lighting to well. . . . . . . . . #soloflight #pilotlife #flying #crosscountryflight #vfr #lowlevel #aviation #pilots #aircraft #avgeek #landscape #danube #danuberiver #bridge #flight #crosscountry #romania #ig_romania #worldfromabove at Giurgeni–Vadu Oii Bridge

Those subway trains look amazing at night. It's impressive to see them in so many numbers. New York needs so many subway trains to move massive amounts of people everyday on quite large distances . . . . . . #subway #subwaytrains #depo #trainyard #night #city #citylife #mta #newyork_ig #newyork #queens #urban #transportation #nycsubway #nightlights at Mets–Willets Point

So we left NYC and headed to Las Vegas where we met with my good old friend Lucian who showed us what the desert has to offer. We were astonished by the beautiful Zion Canyon which you can reach in less than 3 hours drive from Las Vegas. These pictures talk for themselves. Thank you for having us @zionnps it was such a great experience to hike the trails of this beautiful canyon. . . . . . . . . #zioncanyon #hike #canyon #utah #desertoasis #landscape #vacation #zion #nature #history at Zion Canyon

First thing we did when I reached state side is that we went to the beautiful Jones Beach in Long Island. The waves of the Atlantic Ocean are quite big near the shoreline. I'm not used to it since the Black Sea and the Mediterranean are quite calm compared to an Ocean. The water gets deep really fast and the currents are no joke. Despite that, the water was very warm. I really enjoyed my first swim in an Ocean. . . . . #ocean #swim #beach #jonesbeach #longisland #summer #sun #vacation #atlantic at Jones Beach State Park

Got to fly to from Ploiesti to Brasov this summer and went a little under this beauty. This is a part of Bucegi Mountains, part of the Carpathian Mountains. The scenery was breathtaking. I love flying VFR although my IR training is well underway. I will leave for USA in the next days so expect some photos from my trip in the next few weeks. . . . . . . . #flying #pilotlife #clouds #nature #piloting #flight #aviation #weather #mountains #vfr #pilot at Valea Prahovei

Earlier this summer we had an air rally competition at Brasov. The weather was not so great so we didn't fly as much as we wished but the scenery was amazing. In one of the rainy days I took some pictures of this wonderful bird sitting near the windsock. Can you imagine this kind of airplane the Antonov 2 was designed over 72 years a go? It is an icon in this part of the world. A real workhorse. I'm really glad I get to see this bird fly. . . . . . . . #antonov2 #an2 #aircraft #olddesign #oldbird #aviation #airfield #cloudy #overcast #rainyday #freedom #landscape #flying #oldwings #plane at Brasov-Ghimbav

On first of August 2018 I started a new chapter. I left my full time job to pursue a career in aviation. In the past 5 months I took all my ATPL exams and now I have to take my Instrument rating, multi engine, jet orientation course and MCC. I will take you with me on this journey. I can't wait for what lies ahead. I will try to post weekly from now on and sorry for the long "off the radar" but my ATPL exams where no easy task. . . . . . . . #pilot #pilotlife #pilotsofinstagram #aviation #civilaviation #fly #aircraft #airtoair #sunsetlight #sunset #iar46s #iar46 #aviationlife #loveaviation #flying #flight #picoftheday at Mizil

Great flights today with my good friend and colleague @mitrachealin . Learned a lot and got in shape for the National Air Rally Championship that starts in a week. It takes a lot of team work to fly precise and against the clock. Especially when you are faced by changing wind direction and no indication of ground speed. By the way, I love how the tail of the plane stands tall in this picture. @mitrachealin have a great day tomorrow and happy landings! :) . . . . . . #pilots #flight #aircraft #flying #pilotlife #flysafe #loveforflight #flighttraining #crew #airrally at Strejnic, Prahova, Romania

There is something special about black and white photography that fascinates me. I think it blends perfectly with city streets and portraits of people. It can move you in different ways. I think it has more emotion, the contours in black and white makes you see details that you otherwise wouldn't notice. What is your opinion about black and white photography?. . . . . . . . #newyork_ig #citylife #citystreets #urban #streets #explore #blackandwhite #skyscraper #newyorkcity #galaxys7 #urbanlandscape #newyorkinstagram at New York, New York

I haven't posted in a while and I apologise for that. It was quite a week at the office since I returned from state side. I was in New York City 2 days before Christmas and I celebrated the new year in the heart of Manhattan. It was my first time over the Atlantic Ocean and seeing a completely new continent and culture. New York is a bustling metropolis! This is just a small preview. I will post more pictures in the days to come. I was fascinated by the city and it's people. Thank you for having me New York. We will see each other again really soon! . . . . . . #newyork #newyorkcity #winterinnewyork #manhattan #night #citylights #streets #architecture #travel #newyork_ig #ig_newyork #therock #rockefellercenter #urban #citylife #urban #explore #metropolis at New York, New York

This picture was taken before the training flight of the Air Rally National Championship 2017. It was a great evening with a very warm light. The flight went well and learned a lot. At the end of the competition we came in a very close 4'th place at just 5 points off a podium finish. Everyone had a lot of fun and gained experience in air navigation and precision landing. It was a blast and I can't wait for the next edition. . . . . . . #pilot #pilotlife #instapilot #generalaviation #avgeek #aviation #plane #aircraft #propeller #airrally #aerodrome #fly #flight #ilovetofly #bestjobintheworld #sunset #autumn #october at Strejnic, Prahova, Romania
