Lisbon to Faro was a really enjoyable flight. It’s a short hop South and by using maps on my IPhone, I was able to follow the coastline and keep track of which towns and cities past by below me. When it was time to turn inland and cut across to Faro, I thought it would make for a nicer view to see the sun setting over the ocean behind me so stayed above the water. Faro is located on a small tip of southern Portugal with its runway perched on its shores. Being able to gain sight of the glowing lights on the runway from several miles distance with sun setting and sky turning a deep purple, the landing at Faro was the perfect end to very enjoyable flight. One I can recommend to those wanting a scenic flight with a little over an hour flight time.
