Flight seeing Palau with Pacific Mission Aviation.

My most favorite thing I did while I was in Palau? Nope, not diving because I failed to get my diving cert finished. It was definitely flying over the tiny island nation!

Pacific Mission Aviation offers a few different flight services. I chose the 40 minute flight seeing tour of the islands.

First, they send a car to come pick you up from wherever you are staying and bring you to the airport. You get driven right up on the tarmac and to the PMA desk.

Getting on the plane!

Check in takes no time and the day I flew with PMA there was only myself, a couple and their toddler on the flight. Before we knew it we were loaded up on the Cessna and taking off!

The best part of the flight is that the door is wide open!

In no time you’re airborne and flying over Palau’s Rock Islands with the wind whipping through your hair.

The ‘Milky Way’.

One of the first of Palau’s famous spots you fly over is the Milky Way, most of the boat tours stop off here so that you can paint yourself in the stinky white sand.

Above is the German Channel, a world famous dive site located in Palau. The German’s dredged the barrier reef to allow for Europe-bound phosphate carrying ships to pass.
