  • directions109 nm
  • Follow the coast from Andros Town airport (length: 4,396ft) and enjoy the spectacular colours and textures in the nothern part of the Bahamas. NOTAM: WP 8 - The main lumber road is best seen by looking north, out your left window. Not a turn point. it is about 1/2 way across the island and at the only forest in this flight. Note that the entire route up to WP 7 can be flown by merely following the coast.

  • directions59 nm
  • The Berry Islands are located north of Nassau and The Bahamas, and south of Grand Bahama. Check the runway lengths before attempting any landings, as Little Whale Cay and Cistern Cay airports are only 1,977 and 2,271 feet respectively. At WP 7 you will notice edge of the huge sandbar which completes the island circle to the west.

  • Castaway Cay, Disney in the Bahamas
  • Bahamas  Bahamas
  • location_cityCastaway Cay
  • flight_takeoffMYAO Mores Island to MYAO Mores Island
  • directions29 nm
  • Fly from Moore's Island to Castaway Cay. Castaway Cay is under a 99 year lease to Disney as a private tourist destination. NOTAM: Moore's Island AP is only 3036ft in length. Castaway Cay is only 1.3nm wide and the facilities are on the west coast. There is a runway: Castaway Cay MYXB RWY 32/14, 1954 ft, which may or may not be servicable. It should be possible to land a seaplane at the beach/south side of the jetty.

  • Grand Bahama West
  • Bahamas  Bahamas
  • location_cityGrand Bahama
  • flight_takeoffMYGF Grand Bahama to MYGF Grand Bahama
  • directions64 nm
  • Explore the western third of Grand Bahama. Take off and fly RWY HDG 24 to the entrance to Freeport harbour, which is visible immediately after takeoff. When you reach WP 4 Crab Cay and turn HDG 290 to WP5 West End, you initially won't be able to see West End as it is 18 nm away. Just keep the coast on your left, or alternatively you can hug the coast... which may be the safer option, because if you miss West End the next landfall is 54nm away at Florida, U.S.A.!

  • A Slew of Strips
  • Bahamas  Bahamas
  • location_cityExuma
  • flight_takeoffMYEN Norman’s Cay to MYEN Norman’s Cay
  • directions83 nm
  • Take a cruise from Norman's Cay (MYEN 4697 ft) down to Exuma International (MYEF 7061 ft), passing a slew of small airstrips beyond the few marked in this flight plan. Norman's Cay was home to an infamous smuggling ring in the 1980's. to the main island of Exuma. This is one of the very few flight plans in MiGMan's World Tour where you do not land at your originating airport.

  • Scotland's Treasure
  • Bahamas  Bahamas
  • location_cityAbaco
  • flight_takeoffMYAM Marsh Harbour to MYAM Marsh Harbour
  • directions46 nm
  • Take off from Marsh Harbour and fly a counter-clockwise route around the neighbouring cays. I recommend enjoying one of Scotland's most successful cultural exports with a round of golf at Scotland Cay! The golf club is 5 nm NW of the airport, and reached by boat and car. And if you're up for a second round, land at Treasure Cay Airport just 5nm NW of Treasure Cay Golf Club, which can be reached via taxi, no boats required!
