About The Airports

Famous for Maho Beach, Princess Juliana International Airport is by far the most well known airport on the island of Sint Maarten/Saint Martin. Located near Phillipsburg, on the Dutch side of the island, Princess Juliana International Airport serves destinations in North, Central, and South America, Europe, and other islands near it, making it one of the biggest international airports in the Caribbean. On the French side of the island, the lesser known Grand Case Airport serves only 2 destinations (according to FlightConnections.com), Point-a-Pitre and the infamous Saint Barthelemy. One thing that makes this lesser known airport interesting is that after the ATR’s that operate there, back taxi the runway, they use reverse thrust to use the entire runway.

  • Aircraft designated with * will use the generic livery
  • Pilots doing the Island Hopping route may use any livery except for Iraqi Army, Columbia Army, Air Caraibes, DHL, and FedEx
  • DHC 8 stands in for the ATR 72 normally used

Island Hopping

For this special island hopping route, we will use the Cessna 208 Caravan and hop from island to island, eventually finishing up in Port of Spain. The route features places such as the famous St. Barths, with a hill obstructing a clear approach, and Saba, the worlds shortest runway with scheduled airline service. Hopefully, we will have everyone arrive safely, at Port of Spain! After you land at an airport, you will refuel (if necessary), and then head for the next airfield. If required, you will need to vacate the ramp to make room for arriving traffic, depending on apron size. We hope you can join us on this fun-filled journey through the Caribbean!

A detailed PM will be sent to all those who sign up 3 days prior to the flyout

This is a lot of people this early on! Hopefully we can get some more island hopping gates filled up!

Can’t wait! Grand Case is unique and there are so many unique and frankly, dangerous and challenging airports along the way!
