Dear participants, as a good tradition for airplane meetings here is a short briefing for all pilots providing some details to asssure a safe operation:

Make sure you have established radio contact with Kristiansund Kvernberget tower 121.2 for traffic information. The Vinjefjord is the common north- south routing for ambulance helicopters.


Stay well above 1000ft all the time as there are several power lines crossing the Vinjefjord. In the approach area around Bergfall there is no powerlines except one about 5NM west of Bergfall where the little fjord arm narrows.
Power lines are difficult to detect from the air! So be careful.
