DOCUMENT INFO
Description: [...] when Chelsea (who likes to go by "Juice") and I were well south of the border and just nine miles north of La Paz International Airport (at the crook of a bay on Baja's southeast coast), pedal to the metal at 9,500 feet and trying to make Cabo before customs closed, our best laid plans for an afternoon surf came crashing to a halt like a wave hitting a stone seawall. Filing the ICAO flight plan is a bit dissimilar, but really, it's no sweat, and perhaps the only quantifiable differences one might encounter on a flight are Spanish on the frequency, which 1 happily partook in-"Buenos das, Tijuana..."and the need for position reporting, since radar coverage is about as common as a gray whale in Magdalena Bay in the summertime (i.e., not very common). No problemo. immigration; the airport comandante, who typed and stamped aircraft entry forms after going over insurance, registration and other relevant papers; and the flightplan guy who helped us file and then process our flight plan.
