Tour Aviation Chile guides pilots through a stunning slice of South America
Villarrica Airfield is on the western shore of Villarrica Lake at the base of Villarrica volcano, a popular ski center.
More than 75% of Chile’s airports are unpaved. The grass strip at Haluaihue Airfield sits on the coast of Seno de Reloncaví, a gulf on the Pacific Ocean that marks the end of the Central Valley and is considered the beginning of Patagonia.
|It’s not uncommon to find mountain goats at SCLD, the high-elevation runway at Llanada Grande in the Río Puelo Valley.||Smoke plumes can be seen coming from Chaitén, a volcano in southern Chile that entered an eruptive phase in May 2008.|
