This journey to the St. Helena Airport occurred 15 February 2020, earlier than the most important present journey restrictions. This isn’t a time to journey, however as an alternative…please Keep Dwelling! Stick round to the top of the video for a few of my ideas in regards to the state of journey right this moment.
On this video, I will share a bit from “behind the scenes” on the St. Helena airport in addition to some scenes from the flight again to Cape City with Airlink. However the actual star of the present on the flight from St Helena to Cape City was the method at sundown previous Desk Mountain. It was really jaw-dropping.
Watching this method into Cape City from St. Helena – undoubtedly probably the most stunning factor I’ve ever seen from the air – was a possibility to pause and mirror.
I’ve all the time taken nice consolation – even assigned a few of my very own id to the truth that, due to industrial aviation, I can get wherever, anytime, in unbelievable consolation. Producing these movies about St. Helena has been a cathartic course of for me. A reminder of what was doable not too way back.
After all, journey like this isn’t doable now. We’re every doing our half, staying house, washing our palms, sustaining social distance. This stuff are laborious, everyone knows that. We miss being within the sky. We miss what aviation gives – that’s connection. And, beautiful views like this. Views, I’m sorry to say, I didn’t absolutely recognize earlier than this disaster occurred.
Aviation brings the world collectively. A spot like St. Helena – beforehand weeks away – turns into solely a matter of hours from wherever else on the planet. However, now we’re extra aside than we’ve ever been.
We’re separated from our household, our pals, and the remainder of the world. I hope we use this time to rejoice the small moments and to really feel gratitude for what we are able to take pleasure in.
I really feel for everybody who works in journey or individuals who journey for work. Your world has been rocked. These are unusual instances. However we all know this: We all know journey will return. Sure! It will likely be totally different, however it’s going to return. Will journey be what it as soon as was? Will the glamor be gone? I don’t know.
However I’m positive of this: It can come again. People are explorers. We yearn to see the world, to hunt new experiences, to make strangers our pals, to see new locations. Business aviation will make this doable once more.
I look ahead to getting again within the air, to connecting with the world, as quickly because it’s doable to take action. Within the meantime, I’ll proceed posting on this channel with the purpose of bringing a bit of pleasure to you, together with a reminder of what was, and perhaps a prediction or two about what will likely be.
