I remember having turtle steaks at the Diaz compound. It was probably the early 80s.

Toughest piece of meat I ever attempted to subdue.........

Hey “still to be determined buck” don’t forget about BajaBush pilots when you go back to flying. They do a lot for the baja pilots and provide lots of resources.

Great flying stories!
Flying to Baja is a quick way to begin enjoying the peninsula!
I have had a couple of fun flying trips over Baja:

*I got to fly with Doug Bowles from Alfonsina's to Oceanside, via Calexico back in 1999.
*I flew with Captain Mike over Mulegé and Punta Chivato in 2001.
*In 2014, I flew in Jim McCoy's helicopter from El Cajon to San Vicente then again from Mission San Fernando back to El Cajon, in 2014.


Good stuff David. I never had the chance to fly with private pilots over Baja. Your 2001 Capt. Mike flight would be my favorite....

My wife and I had the good fortune of travelling on Screaming Airlines down to La Paz during the Baja 1000 some years ago. It was a gas. Capt. Mike was a solid pilot. Brown Field - San Felipe - Mulege - La Paz - Mulege - Guaymas - - Douglass ? - Scottsdale.

Another time I flew in a plane with some buddies to Isla Natividad for surf. While there we hopped down to Abreojos one morning for a session. Good times. :dudette:

That is what an airplane can do for you alright.
The only thing in this world you can't buy more of is time... unless you're a pilot.:cool:

I used to fly my Lancair 4p from Oregon to Mulege in five hours. Leave in the morning and have lunch and a margarita at the Serenidad by noon. I still have that option but For the last couple of years We have been taking our RV and bringing our dogs and all kinds of gear and towing a Jeep Wrangler for off road exploring and taking three days for the trip. I’m in no hurry so the extra comfort and convenience is worth the extra time and camping comfortably on the beautiful Conception beaches. An airplane takes you from a to b quickly, but you need to have ground transport and everything you need in place when you get there. It all depends on your mission.


I love the 4p. Amazing.
Since your not flying it can I borrow?

Maybe consider borrow with a nice deposit. Maybe consider selling.
I still fly it a lot around the states, just got back from a run to Florida. Not Baja so much anymore. I have been flying Lancair’s for the past fifteen years with no problems. If you have an interest in flying one I would recommend you google Lancair 4p, there is a lot of discussion on various posts on the airplane.
Here are a couple of links on the discussions and comments.
