Sunday, May 22, and May 29 flight details:

Hi all,

This will be a flight plan for a visit to Costa Rica. We will need two flights to explore this country between Panama and Nicaragua. I will post an updated flight plan for the second flight after we finished part I.

The country is considered one of the most progressive in Latin America. For example, the army was abolished as early as 1948 in favor of promoting education and health programs, the country generates almost 100 % of its electricity from renewable sources, and ecotourism is strongly promoted. About 27 % of the country’s land is protected.

By international standards, Costa Rica stands out for its successful political and economic transformation. Unlike many other countries in the region, it has been a stable democracy since the 1950s and, thanks to early sociopolitical measures, was spared the problems of social unrest, civil wars, and dictatorships that were widespread in 20th-century Latin America. In the face of armed conflicts in neighboring countries at the time, it declared its “permanent and active unarmed neutrality” in 1983 and is also referred to as “the Switzerland of Central America.”

We depart from Sirena (MRSN) in the southwest of Costa Rica and fly east to reach Finca 63 (MRFS). From here we follow the west coast with some detours inland and land at Buenos Aires (MRBA), La Bonita (MRNI), La Managua (MRQP), and Juan Santamaria (MROC). Juan Santamaria is the international airport in San José, Costa Rica’s capital city. From here we turn west again and land at Dos Marías (MRDM), Palo Arco (MRPA), Nicoya (MRNC), Nosara (MRNS), and Tamarindo (MRTM) before we reach the next international airport Daniel Orduber Quirós (MRLB), which is the most northerly point of this flight.

We leave the Pacific Ocean and turn east towards the Caribbean Sea and land at Hacienda (MRHP), El Tanque (MRAN), De Guapiles (MRGP), and Barra de Parismina (MRBP) before we reach the final stop at Aeropuerto Limón (MRLM).

The whole flight has 462 miles and we will finish the first part about two hours after departure. I will be in the Kodiak, please fly what you like.
