Departure times from the hotel on Sunday are at the discretion of the pilot of the aircraft. Please be prompt when you are given times to meet the aircraft (both leaving the U.S. and returning on Sunday). Be sure to pack lightly for the trip. Most pilots limit maximum baggage weight for each passenger to 10 pounds. Soft-sided luggage works best and saves wear and tear on the airplane during loading and unloading. If you don’t own soft-sided luggage, try grocery bags. They work!
Ask your pilot if he or she has any restrictions on eating and drinking in the aircraft. Aircraft owners are very proud of their airplanes and appreciate the courtesy of their passengers. Be sure to clean up after yourself upon arrival back home. In other words, don’t leave your garbage for the pilot to dispose of.
Take your camera so you can capture memories. And, if you have good digital pictures, please send them to the webmaster for printing on this web site. Have a wonderful trip and enjoy the experience of Mexico and of helping others. You are very much appreciated!
