South American aviation goes back to the very early years of the 20th Century. Bolivia shines as probably the most air transportation minded country overall. With over 200 airfields of all kinds, aviation is going forward and is well. It is a large country, with some of the Andes mountains bellowing above the clouds. Its capital’s airport in La Paz, El Alto, is laid in a plain at an altitude of 4061 meters above sea level. Then there is the huge jungle as well as valleys that extend in all directions. Pilots flying here are a special breed who dare all kinds of weather both in winter and summer. You will be flying to this country that will amaze you.
