The pilot's handbook for a Florida vacation in the skies!
Florida is a mecca for general aviation. Quick and easy to reach from Europe, the Sunshine State is the ideal place to go for an extended vacation spent flying especially when winter has Europe in its icy grip. And the whole family can enjoy the excursion destinations the Sunshine State has to offer – from Miami to Tallahassee, there's no end to the options. Disney World in Orlando is just one of many places to visit! In thinking about where to go, you could consider visiting a lively metropolis like Miami or perhaps decide you'd prefer a bit of peace and quiet in the state's northwest panhandle, a region that's often underrated.
Aviator’s Guide to Florida
The Aviator’s Guide is a travel guide by pilots for pilots. It provides all the information you need to plan outings with your own plane or one you charter. Will you find an airport café at your destination or perhaps even a golf course? How do you get from the airfield into the city? Or would you rather head to an isolated beach? How about shopping in Palm Beach? Or swimming with manatees in Crystal River? The Aviator’s Guide to Florida provides answers to all of these questions and more.
What makes the Sunshine State stand out is its broad range of day-trip destinations – from pure sightseeing flights over incredible landscapes to special destinations for golfers, naturalists, ornithologists, beach lovers and more. And to enjoy all this, you don't need to have extensive experience flying in the U.S. The Aviator’s Guide to Florida is a travel guide for pilots that provides descriptions of areas that make for challenging flying as well as of airports that are easier to fly into. This lets everyone find the best destination that suits him or her. In addition, the book contains practical tips about flying in the U.S. and information about the peculiarities pilots will be confronted with in U.S. airspace.
