Yesterday I had the chance to ride along on a flight to pick up a missionary with Extreme Missionary Adventures from a town out in the jungle. It was my first time riding in one of SAMAir's planes and it was pretty exciting. The flight was about an hour long and I had the chance to fly about half of the way there.

I had the chance to fly the plane a bit on the way there. I offered to land it as well, but Dave didn't think it would be a good idea.

Our 1 hour (120 mile) flight would probably have take 2 or 3 days by boat due to all the curves in the river.
