There's certainly a lot of aircraft movement - every few seconds another one takes off.

I am starting to hear it as well and we do not usually hear them a lot especially in the direction the sound is coming from (north east)

San Pedro based Belize Blog since 2007 - great travel resources & discounts

A new pilot is being tested out and they're doing touch and go landings.

There were at least 4 aircraft - I am thinking maybe even 6. I took my little guy (David not Cal) up on the roof to watch and enjoy.

Seems like they do this every year around this time. Finally gets dark enough, early enough I suppose.

Thank goodness they train and practice! The pilot who flew me out after the tropical storm in May was great! The wind gusts were incredible and lining up for Caye Caulker had me just a little nervous but he nailed it perfectly. That little runway at the Belize city airport that's right on the ocean looked a little dicey also.

I've gotta say I've been very impressed with the pilots for Maya and TropicAir. Keep trainin' boys!

God Bless The Reef!
