Bahamas Mon!


Recommended Posts

Just got back from Freeport Grand Bahama. Flew KMLB, KPBI, MYGF, and back after 2 day visit. 

No need to take on fuel. Still had 11 gallons left. The 912Is is just so efficient. Fun trip, but the paperwork and DHS procedures can be intimidating. 
N838Q if you’re interested in looking at the flight path. 
Highly recommend. It’s a whole different world over there, but you have to fly 80 miles over open ocean, and wear a life jacket. 
Eat the conch salad and enjoy.
