Vols Ă  Carriacou /Flights to Carriacou

Carriacou est une île magnifique avec une piste courte et étroite de 800m de long.

Je vous conseille de ne pas y atterrir trop chargé (ne pas atteindre la MTOW) car au décollage vous devrez éviter les arbres qui entourent la piste et une colline dans l'axe de piste en faisant un virage à gauche dès que possible.

A l'atterrissage faites attention dans la baie oĂą vous serez en finale, il peut y avoir des bateaux qui mouillent dans l'axe.

Ils n'ont pas d'AVGAS 100LL donc prévoyez assez de fuel pour revenir à l'aérodrome de départ.

Sinon vous avez TVSA qui a du 100LL si besoin.

Prenez soin de vous et bons vols !

ENGLISH :

Carriacou is a beautiful island with a short and narrow 800m long runway.

I advise you not to land there too loaded (do not reach the MTOW) because on take-off you will have to avoid the trees that surround the runway and a hill in the axis of the runway by making a left turn as soon as possible.

When landing, be careful in the bay where you will be on final, there may be boats anchoring in the axis.

They do not have AVGAS 100LL so take enough fuel to return to the departure aerodrome.

Otherwise you have TVSA (St Vincent) which has 100LL if necessary.

Take care of yourself and safe flights

During COVID time

As a pilot, during COVID time, it's not harder to go to this airport. You just need to find a nice Handler (HARRIS) that will take care of everything when you arrive there (even with a C172). The West Coast of the Island can be turbulent in the afternoon. When I go to Hewanorra coming from the north of the caribbean, I generally pass on the East Coast to make that flight comfortable for passengers.
