St. Barthelemy is a beautiful island in the Caribbean, famous for its gorgeous beaches, European style and celebrity guests. But among pilots, the island is famous for its intimidating airport – short, downhill and surrounded by hills on three sides. In this week’s fun flying video, ride along with young pilot Matt Guthmiller as he flies a Bonanza into St. Barts. You’ll see the landing from both inside and outside the cockpit, complete with GPS data and even the pilot’s pulse (watch it go up on short final!).
