    Once again, Just Planes is introducing the world to a very unique airline based out of Bolivia. Amaszonas was founded in 1998 and it began its operations in 2000. Starting off with a fleet of just 1 single engine piston aircraft, the airline has seen tremendous growth through the determination of their dedicated staff and company owner. Today, Amaszonas operates a fleet of 10 CRJ-200s with plans of increasing this number in the near future. In this program, we follow the day to day operations of the airline sitting alongside their pilots to some of the most intriguing destinations in this region. Let’s have a look at some of the highlights

    HIGHLIGHTS

    This program follows the traditional format of most Just Planes programs. We begin with an introduction to the flight crew as they review their flight documentation prior to departure. Unlike most preflight briefings however, the crew has to take into consideration the fact that they are situated at an altitude of 13,000ft! This means that careful performance planning is essential to safely flying in this region. In addition to high altitude operations, our first flight to Santa Cruz and later to La Paz and Sucre highlight the added challenge of airports that are surrounded by mountainous terrain. When you combine these elements, it creates a program that is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seats as the highly skilled flight crew makes their way in and out of these airports.

     

    In addition to these highlights, flying in this region affords the flight crew and viewers a luxury that is seldom experienced by the average traveler. Given the unique high altitude and mountains terrain of this region, it also affords some of the most spectacular views that one can imagine. With views so beautiful, it’s no wonder the pilots of Amaszonas seem to enjoy their job so much and it goes without saying that the scenery seen in this program is a definite highlight that shouldn’t be missed.

     

    Focusing more on the aviation side of things, this program nicely showcases the capabilities of the CRJ-200 to operate quite comfortably in this region. Given the high altitude operation however, modifications were needed to avoid having erroneous pressurization warnings in the cockpit. For more information on this modification, be sure to pay close attention to some of the pilot presentations as they are very insightful into the operation of the aircraft and other flying procedures.

     

    For those of you who are fans of the CRJ series, rest assured that this program provides a wealth of information which is presented during external walkarounds and a detailed cockpit and cabin presentation. The final presentation in this program focuses on the company itself which tells an inspiring story of how dreams and aspiration can come true with hard work and dedication. Through this presentation we learn of the humble beginning of this airline and the path to what it has now become. It’s without a doubt that this program is one of the best featuring high altitude operations and it is one that I would definitely recommend to aviation enthusiast and pilots alike.
