Posted (edited)

Altiplano – Density Altitude Alert  (REDUX)

The tour starts in Peru at Arequipa (SPQU) at an elevation of 8400 feet and features the multiple landings at high altitude airports across the Altiplano region of South America including:

  • ·         El Alto (SLLP) - 13,314 Elevation
  • ·         Cochabamba (SLCB) – 8,360 Elevation
  • ·         Potosi (SLPO) - 12,923 Elevation
  • ·         Cruz De Machacamarca Airport (SLCZ) - 12,399 Elevation

The route concludes on the Pacific coast of Chile at Iquique (SCDA) – 157 Elevation. 

If this route seems familiar it is because it has been recycled from 2017 where we flew it in airliners.

Flightplan & Pilots Guide: Here.

Aircraft:

The route is 738 miles and a fast aircraft capable of performing at high altitudes will be required.  I will be flying the Working Title Cessna CJ4  in Kestrel livery but as always you are free to fly what you like.

I was able to fly this flight over the last 2 evenings...what a phenomenal trip with spectacular scenery - I would argue some of the best MFS has to offer. Great flight Jeff, one for the ages!
