We are coming to Ambergris Caye for our honeymoon in March and as part of our package we have air transfers from Belize City to AC on Tropic Air. I hate to sound like a loser, but their planes seem really small. Is it safe? Has anyone had any problems or positive experiences with Tropic Air? I appreciate the help!

mikskibum - ignore him, most of us do. We've flown on the planes used by both Tropic Air and Maya Island Air. They appear to be well-maintained and as safe as airplanes anywhere. They are small & a little noisy - but the flight is only about 15 minutes and is beautiful. You will love AC - have a wonderful honeymoon!

small planes are better than those commercial jets, the pilots at tropic air are very experienced, fyi: since were talking about this topic i'd thought i throw this out there, I did my first Solo flight this morning, flew da plane all by myself!
