An Icy Charter to Antarctica

Punta Arenas, Ushuaia, Isla Rey Jorge, Palmer Station, Base Marambio, Petrel, Isla Rey Jorge, Rio Grande, Punta Arenas

DC-3 Airways has been awarded a contract to provide a ferry service for Cargo, Exploration Teams and Relief Crews between the tip of South America to the bases on the desolate sixth continent known as Antarctica. You will be flying in an area where the wind seldom drops below gale force and landing on oil-soaked gravel and ice runways. DC-3s, with Turbo Prop engines and skis, which retract to approx 5 inches below the wheels from the axle line, still fly this route today. You will be based at the town of Punta Arenas, the most southerly International Airport in the world.
