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.

Standardized training offered by Cirrus is now accepted by OpenAirplane, thanks to an agreement between the companies.

Though just 20 miles off the Southern California Coast, Santa Catalina Island is one of the most challenging locations for an airshow you could find.
