Caribbean Nights

Gorgeous beaches, crystal clear waters, year-round summer climate and pure joie de vivre. The Caribbean is a unique paradise. The countless islands in the tropical part of the Atlantic attract a huge number of tourists every year. The heart of the Central American subcontinent is not only a great place to relax, but also to experience culture and history. But with so many enchanting islands to choose from, it can be difficult: Cuba, Curacao, Barbados, Jamaica, the Bahamas, or another island. Which is your favorite Caribbean Island?

In the first part of the series, you're in the northern Caribbean: The Bahamas. But first, there's a short navigation course in Florida to help you find your destination when flying over the open water.

Prolog – Florida

A flight instructor will be waiting with a Cessna to teach you how to navigate with VOR and NDB. Over the Sunshine State of Florida you will fly from Key West via Miami and the Everglades to St. Petersburg and Tampa. After a visit to Busch Gardens, you fly to Orlando and compare the theme park with Disney Land, Seaworld and Universal Studios. Finally, Cape Canaveral awaits.

Grand Bahamas - Abaco - Berry Islands

The first leg takes you to the Bahamas at night, more precisely to the northern islands. At daybreak, you will first explore Grand Bahama with its beaches, bays lined with coral reefs and mangrove swamps. Continue via the Abaco Islands and the offshore Barrier Islands to the Berry Islands.

Bimini - Andros - New Providence - Eleuthera - Cat Islands

After the trip to the Bimini Island chain you visit Andros, the biggest Island of Bahamas. Andros is also the island with the largest number of blue holes. Via New Providence with its capital Nassau, you fly to Eleuthera with its picturesque villages in the north, the unique pale pink sandy beaches and the pineapple plantations with the sweetest fruits. At the end of the day, Cat Islands awaits you with the highest peak in the Bahamas.

Excuma - Long Island - San Salvador - Crooked Island – Mayaguana

The last leg of your Bahamas journey takes you to the Family Islands or Out Islands. Discover picturesque white beaches, exclusive luxury resorts, the deepest blue hole in the Bahamas and almost untouched and uninhabited islands. Christopher Columbus is said to have discovered the "New World" for the first time on one of these islands in October 1492. As we know today, it was not the transatlantic sea route to India.

You fly the Bushtrips with the Cessna 152 or the Cessna 172. Depending on the edition you use, the Gauge and G1000 versions are available. You can change the weather as you wish.

The missions are available in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Polish and Portuguese. Some languages are machine translated. If something is wrong, please contact us so we can adjust it.

Happy Landings!
