Jean and Mike flew very well all the way to San Felipe to do customs and the necessary documentation as this was their first Mexican Airport Of Entry (MAOE).
After watching the tracker standing still for over an hour, Jack McCormick from Bush Pilots International was kind enough to contact the airport Commander just to check up on the guys, and he was informed the guys are finalizing paperwork but should be off soon.
Though after 2.5hours of no movement, Jack was kind enough to again phone the airport just to get confirmation that the guys had left safely but will be heading for the beautiful town of Loreto instead. Due to the fact that they can only fly VFR in Mexico, sunset would be before they reach La Paz, thus they decided to change the route to Loreto. Unfortunately it became apparent then Mike and Jean forgot to put on the satellite tracker at departure from San Felipe.
Thank you Jack for checking up on the guys, we really appreciate your help and advice.
Another thing I’d like to mention is that the team at liveATC.net did a stellar job. While the guys were en-route to San Felipe they contacted us to let us know that they were busy trying to get the ATC feed at La Paz up-and-running as it was currently down. Then shortly after we had heard Mike and Jean had left from San Felipe and were now heading for Loreta…we got another message from the liveATC team saying the ATC feed at La Paz was functional. So thank you guys, your effort definitely didn’t go unnoticed, and thank you so much again for helping us share our adventure with everyone out there. The liveATC team is fantastic!
