Thanks to Captain Brann for his steady flying, Dad and I had a wonderful time flying high above Southwest Florida on a beautiful, sunny and clear December day last Christmas season.
The flight started at the Naples Airport. We took off heading north for Venice Airport. After a nice lunch, the plane flew for a touch, taxi and go at Fort Myers Airport, then South toward Marco Island. Just East of the island, we did a non-stop touch and go at the Marco Island Executive Airport. The photos clearly show how this small airstrip is surrounded completely by water and mangroves. Pretty cool.
Heading North again, we finally landed at Naples Airport. Unlike boating, we didn't have to spray clean the plane and flush the engine of salt. Nice.
