The Pilot’s Guide to Mexico and Central America is now available with the most current information and photos of airports throughout the region.
The guide contains detailed instructions on arrival and departure procedures as well as current contact information for 229 large and small airports (143 in Mexico and 86 in Central America).
The 2013-2015 guide sells for $54.49 and is the sixth in the series of books by Rick Gardner, a highly experienced general aviation pilot and flight instructor who travels the region in a Cessna 337 Skymaster.
Gardner has been writing and compiling aeronautical information about the region since 2006 and leads other pilots on guided flights with Caribbean Sky Tours.
The guide also shows how to plan international flights to and from the United States.
Question: One of my friends is working to raise money for a charity. She wants to offer an airplane ride as a prize to one of the donors and has asked me to be the pilot in command. If am a private pilot, then how many hours of flight time would I need to have logged in order to act as pilot in command on this flight?
History abounds at San Marcos, Texas, where the Commemorative Air Force has a hangar full of warbirds and a museum with Doolittle Raider artifacts.
Alaska seaplane pilots will gather at Lake Hood April 26 for a day of free seminars, briefings, and conversation to kick off the season.
