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.
On the check ride, it's all about gentle control inputs and straight and level flight. After you have your license, though, aerobatics can be a fun way to expand your skills. In this week's fun flying video, strap into the backseat of a Citabria for some loops, rolls and spins.
Incredible vistas. Remote grass strips. Towering mountains. If all your time has been logged around busy airports in the lower 48, flying in Alaska may look completely different. In this amazing video, you'll certainly see some very different sights, but you'll also see how much remains the same - pilots are pilots, no matter what the adventure.
