Waypoints & Radio Communication Hand-offs

The following list provides checkpoints often referred to by Guatemala radio controllers.

When flying in Guatemala you are talking to a controller almost all the time. There are only a few exceptions. In mountainous areas you might not be able to communicate properly, for example. Over the lake Izabal, you would be making position reports to the Aeroclub Rio Dulce Unicom. The map shows the coverage areas and frequencies of ATC controllers and the typical hand-offs shown as red dots. Further below on this page you will find these hand-off points in reference to GPS coordinates and VOR radials.
