This weekend, we’re exploring the Sierra mountains in the west of Mexico! This area features rugged terrain and a lot of remote bush airstrips. Our flight will include several very short strips - some as short as 700 or 800 feet - so be prepared! The Sierra mountains run almost the full length of Mexico, but some areas have many more airstrips in the sim than others. This region - the northwest of Durango state - is one of them. The route features several canyon runs and steep descents, with a couple of significant climbs as well.
19 landings in total, 168nm. The highest point we’ll pass over is around 9,000 feet.

We at Bush Divers are a community of pilots focused on one thing, bush flying! Disregarding the ho-hum of big jets and long runways we opt for the dangers of low and slow flying through rugged terrain and ever-changing weather, landing at the most remote and inhospitable airfields in aviation history.
