The weather in Guatemala is absolutely great all year around. Especially in the mornings, you can almost always find some time to fly. Later in the year, mornings a great and then bad weather starts to build up in the afternoon. Between November and February, it seems like the weather is made for flying all day long. Only cold fronts bring strong winds, sometimes too strong to comfortably fly. The Aeroclub organizes Full Moon Fly-Ins called “lunadas” for instrument rated pilots between November and February. Participants leave Guatemala City to arrive in Iztapa before dark, then fly back later after sunset. Flying at night in Guatemala requires a instrument rating. Its absolutely worth it, great views assured and good practice for instrument flying as well. Check out some pictures below.
