My Adventure Story
Direct VFR Juan Santamaria to Daniel Oduber. Off 25 direct the VOR then
follwed the outbount radial direct to Liberia. Cimbed to 8500 stayed
clear of cloud. Near Liberia went direct the 5 nm FAF for direct in to
25. Didn't pick up the LOC back course until about 3 DME, not that we
needed it (but if we did ...).
We asked the tower if using a
"ground handling company" was mandatory in Liberia, as it was at Juan
Santamaria. Found out it wasn't, so we said "thanks for coming but we
don't need you" to the cute agent (she & her colleage were sporting
"Westjet" lanyards for their ID). The DGAC agen was quite nice. The
fees were much more reasonable than at SJO ($100 fr landing, parking
etc, + $150 for ground handling services!).
