It’s easy with an GNSS and FMS equipped A/C. In the privacy of your own home you design the flight plan, establish the waypoints and load it into your plane’s FMS.
Then you execute the flight plan. (There maybe local ATC conditions that I’m not aware of in Germany. )
But essentially, the coupled autopilot flies the way points until the syringe is complete.

Wow what great propaganda! I wonder who financed that??

Propaganda? It's a celebration. Surely financed by the pilot who flew the airplane. It probably cost just a few hundred bucks.

First pick a day with no winds aloft. Dead calm else the picture in the sky gets redraws by mother nature.

Writing as a non-pilot, surely the autopilot would compensate for wind and point the nose accordingly. The GPS track would be unaffected. Or is my ignorance glaring?

I’m sure some curmudgeon will think so.

Happy New Year everyone!

Ian, you are correct.

This isn’t an actual picture in the sky but a ADS-B radar picture of his flight path !
