FSEconomy World Tour 67: SBCJ-SNKE

I didn’t stay long at Carajás Airport, but instead took onboard another four passengers, bound for Santana Do Araguaia. The soupy weather was still around.

FSEconomy World Tour 66: SBIH-SBCJ

After picking up the four passengers in Itaituba, we set off for Carajás Airport, which serves the Carajás Mine. Weather at Itaituba is still foggy, but it looks like it’s clearer at Carajás.

FSEconomy World Tour 63: SB2X/SWUQ-SWOW

It was pretty hot in the rainforest, so I was happy yo get on my way again almost immediately. I wasn’t the only one: two passengers came onboard for transport to Moura. Other than that is on the bank of the Rio Negro there’s again little I can find on it. Appears to be an ongoing theme here in South America.


The weather had taken a turn for the worse on departure: this was the view out of the cockput just after take-off Continue reading

FSEconomy World Tour 62: SVAT-SB2X/SWUQ

I picked up two passengers in San Fernando de Atabapo, who were on their way to Surucucu, which will be the first stop in Brazil. Surucucu is apparently named after a venomous snake. Other than that, there’s very little I can find on it. The Google map images are very blurry, so I guess I will just have to fly over and see what’s up. At least there’s fuel avaible.

FSEconomy World Tour 61: SKPC-SVAT

I picked up five passengers at Puerto Carreño who were on their way to San Fernando de Atabapo, which apparently has a somewhat notorious history. Weather at Puerto Carreño is still cloudy with 30C, San Fernando de Atabapo appears to be a bit cooler: clear skies, 24C. Almost no wind in both places.


Take-off from Puerto Carreño Continue reading
