Email From Thierry
Please find attached (Link: https://www.wacoaircraft.com/trip) the latest presentation of the journey. We are setting up a departure on October 20 which should be after the height of the hurricane season.
I’ve made changes to the program based on avgas availability and distance as well as your email regarding the flight to San Andrea island in the Caribbean.
We are within 27 days on the program and I’m getting ready to create the budget as well as a flyer describing the journey. But I have more questions.
After our stay in Belize, we have to fly to Cozumel, Mexico, to refuel and clear customs and spend one night. Then the next day we could do Cozumel to Key West which is about 375 nautical miles or we can make a technical stop in Havana to refuel. Let me know your preference.
In the revision of the program, I removed the country of El Salvador which does not offer the safety and political environment for our journey. They are listed by the State Department as a place of high crime. I have replaced it with the airport of Guatemala City for us to transfer by land to the old capital of Antigua, Guatemala which is a pretty unique place to visit. Would a landing at an elevation of 5,000’ (Guatemala City airport) be a problem?
The following stop will be at the beautiful resort of Mukul in Nicaragua on the Pacific side where at this time there is no avgas. How comfortable would the pilots be to fly a leg of 325 nautical miles, not refuel, and fly another 60 nautical miles to the next airport in Costa Rica with avgas? If it’s too high for their comfort level, we can add a technical stop between Guatemala City and Mukul to refuel.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Tail Winds and Blue Skies Always.
