Flying to St Helena Airport

This trip to the St. Helena Airport took place on 15 February 2020, before the major current travel restrictions. Here's a video with my thoughts on that situation:

This video is about flying to the St. Helena Airport. St. Helena Airport is one of the most challenging airports in the world. Less than ten commercial airline pilots are certified to land here!

At either end of the runway are massive cliffs, which create challenging wind conditions.

I’ve wanted to visit St. Helena for a long time. When the St. Helena Airport received its first commercial flight in 2017, the trip became far more viable for me. Before St. Helena Airport opened, a trip there required a five day boat trip just to get there.

St. Helena’s role in the Age of Exploration cannot be understated. The Portuguese used St. Helena as a secret base for restocking their ships (they left a heard of goats and planted citrus trees. It then became a key possession of the British East India Company before it was suddenly converted into a prison for the world’s most feared man – Napoleon. He died there, too. Today, it’s a fascinating British Overseas Territory accessed thanks to the St. Helena Airport.

In this video, we’ll explore the flight’s route, the passenger experience, and even peak behind the scenes at the St. Helena Airport to understand how it all works.

Here’s a link to the unedited take-off and landing footage:

Napa Travel Tips: 10 Things to Know Before You Go to Napa

Things you'll want to know before you travel to the Napa Valley in California. The best time of year to come: September & October. Grape Harvest seasons. June/July/August is HOT! Really Hot in the day like 90-100F. But cold at night... in the 50's. The morning fog during June through August is deceptive; temperatures get toasty once it burns off

2. Napa is Expensive: Think Disneyland prices, Hotels, Food, and wine tasting. Wine tastings cost $20-$75

3. Napa is more than the city of Napa: The whole Napa Valley, St Helena, Calistoga, Sonoma too

4. Getting to Napa: Ultimately Driving, but you can fly in to
Sacramento, Oakland, SFO, SJC. Napa is located 40 miles south of Sacramento and 50 miles north of San Francisco. About an hour drive from each. You can also take a bus to Napa from Oakland and San Francisco.

5. Public transit is non-existant, but there are wine tours if you don't want to drive.

6. Reservations: Make reservations, for winery tastings, and dinner. You'll thank me later.

7. Wake up early: Especially on the weekends if you are visiting the wineries, go to the busy ones before noon. After 12 is when they get crazy busy.

8. No nightlife -- all the wineries close at 5-6pm to prevent drunk driving. Only thing to do a night is eat. And you better do that before 9pm.

9. Food: Best food is in the town of Napa itself. Think about a picnic lunch from V. Sattui or Dean and Deluca (Both in St. Helena)

10. Don't drink too much -- particularly on a hot day... the wine goes to your head faster. Many tasting rooms have a place that you can spit your wine. It's okay to spit it out after tasting, the more you spit, the more you can taste.

What To Do in St Helena

This trip to the St. Helena took place from 15 - 18 February 2020, before the major current travel restrictions. I do not encourage anyone to travel now. #StayHome. Here's a video with my thoughts on the current situation:

St. Helena may just be one of my favorite places I’ve ever visited. The Saints are some of the kindest people I’ve ever come across in my travels. Because I had such a great time, I thought I’d try something different for this video about St. Helena.

I normally make videos here on YouTube about airlines, but perhaps the most amazing part of aviation are the places it can take. Places like St Helena. So, in this video about St Helena, I’m trying a little experiment: Let’s check out some things on the ground in St Helena! We’ll explore some of the highlights of St. Helena and some of what I enjoyed while I was here. Let me know what you think about this experiment by leaving comments. I always appreciate feedback! And next week, I’ll post a more typical video about my return to the mainland.

St. Helena is home to epic history, out-of-this-world scenery, and incredible opportunities for intreprid travelers.

We’ll explore the infamous Jacobs Ladder, Napoleon’s two residences on St. Helena, some of the hiking available on the island, as well as some of the most amazing vistas.

This is my first attempt at a video about something unrelated to aviation, so I’d appreciate your feedback. I think it’s probably fair to say I need to expand my coverage of things like accomodations and food if I continue with this. Also, maybe I’ll do this on a separate channel. Anyway, let me know what you think of this first attempt. And, also, let me know if you’re heading to St. Helena once we can all travel again!
