It is the dream of many pilots to fly around the world. But the task of planning such a trip is overwhelming, even for the most seasoned aviator.
Just the thought of dealing with landing permits, customs and immigration, and navigating across the oceans can make a pilot hesitate in deciding to make this epic journey — then add in making hotel arrangements, dealing with possible medical emergencies, and all the other things that can happen. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could leave all the details to someone else so all you had to do is concentrate on flying your own airplane?
You can, thanks to Air Journey, a company founded more than 10 years ago by Thierry Pouille (tee-airy poo-ee), who settled in Jupiter, Florida, after moving to the U.S. from France.
Flying adventure specialist Air Journey is adding Cuba to its list of destinations.
The company is now accepting registrations to take a limited number of GA pilots, flying their own airplanes, to Havana.
