Celebration of Round Latin America
02 Dec 2018 - 03 Mar 2019

Peter travelled with Robin Doten landing in 23 countries to complete the journey of about 17,500 nm in 91 days.  They became the first helicopter to fly round Latin America from West Palm Beach to Puerto Williams return.

They have had the good fortune to experience the Caribbean, South America and Central America from the helicopter platform: the beaches and reefs; the Amazon River and Forest; the Moxos Plain and the Pantanal; the Patagonia Steppe, Tierra del Fuego, the Southern Icecap, glaciers, and volcanoes; the Atacama and Sechura Deserts, an earthquake in Ecuador; spectacular wildlife including, Condor, Giant River Otters and the penguins!  It was absolutely breath-taking scenery throughout.

 

It has been absolutely breath-taking scenery throughout. South America is a beautiful continent of BIG contrasts: forests and desert, flat and mountainous, wet and dry, windy and calm. The constant has been the generosity and hospitality of all whom they had the privilege to meet.
