07FEB21 / 1800Z - The Andes Athens - Bogotá Fly-Out with IFATC @ SKBO

¡ Welcome to Colombia - Bienvenidos a Bogotá !

¡ Hello !

I’m Andrés, a 20 years old Colombian aviation lover, I’m studying Aeronautical Engineering, I’m on my 3rd year, SKBO is my home airport and the beginning of my dreams and my motivations as a student, and I’m here to invite you to this great event that will take place at Aeropuerto Internacional El Dorado Luis Carlos Galán Sarmiento.

Throughout my stay here in Infinite Flight, I’ve been so interested to show the world that Colombia is a perfect country to fly, to the south with Leticia and its colorful amazonic landscapes , to the north with Cartagena, Barranquilla and Santa Marta’s airports and coasts , to Pasto with its dangerous and tricky approach and landing, also Bogotá, the busiest cargo airport in South America and second on passengers.

Who’s Luis Carlos Galán Sarmiento? He was a liberal politician who ran for the presidency, but as you may know, between the 80s and the 90s, Colombia experienced a serious time of violence on behalf of the drug trafficking promoted by Escobar and other nefarious characters, Galan was murdered in the central square of Soacha (Municipality near Bogotá) during a campaign speech , then as a tribute, The Colombian Government named Bogota’s airport like that, but for everyone it’s better to called as El Dorado, which in fact is named like that because of the breathe-taking afternoon landscapes and El Dorado Legend, a gold piece exposed to the public on Museo del Oro in Bogotá Downtown.

A very special thanks to Tyler for allowing me to control this event!
