If this is in the wrong category, move it. If this by any chance offends you don’t hesitate to PM me and I’ll take it down.
I thought, in the spirit of GA, that I’d take to the skies in a Cessna 172, for a flight around the Caribbean.
My goal was to do a touch and go at every airport, starting in a loop from St Barts.
I departed St Barts, and from there took a nice 10 minute leg to TQPF, where I performed my first touch-and-go.
From there, I continued to TFPG, before a rather short onwards journey to TNCM, where I took a short, 10 minute layover.
Afterwards, I proceeded to Saba, which hosts the world’s shortest commercial runway.
From there I did a little island hopping, and found myself at Point-a-Pitre.
Sunset fell quickly which provided a lovely ambience to fly in.
By the time I had reached TAPT, night had fallen.
From TAPT came my final and longest leg of the journey, back to St Barts. By the midpoint of this leg, sunrise rose.
After 20 more minutes, I arrived back at St Barts, with a total flight time of 3:34.
It was great not to be in an airliner, and I tell you all that GA is massively underrated.
Fly smart, fly GA!
