join Virtual Horizons as we explore the world from the perspective
of those select few who view the earth from above. You will share in
watching the earth revolve and evolve beneath you as only a pilot can. The emphasis will be on pilots and
aircraft that can fly without airports and control towers, but the
connecting theme throughout the site will be the desire to fly to the remote areas of the world.
Live the virtual present and relive the past as we visit the
incredibly beautiful landscapes of the bush pilot's realm.
Experience the sheer excitement of flying into an otherwise
inaccessible rainforest river, tropical lagoon, desert bush camp,
remote mountain lake, mountain top, or offshore helideck in a Cessna, de Havilland, Bell,
Sikorsky or any one of a variety of bush worthy aircraft flying today.
Not just for
bush pilots, however, the Virtual Horizons site will be for anyone who has
flown or who has ever wanted to fly. We will bring you stories, articles,
letters, and photographs (fact or fiction; past or present) from and about
bush pilots, seaplane pilots and helicopter pilots and the places they visit. Read about and communicate with
bush pilots as they wing their way across the vast areas of the world's
Let the "horizon" take you away! When you are not sure of where

Pilot's Blog Book
Bush Pilot Journals
Blogs have become a popular
way to share thoughts and adventures with the world at large. Check in
here for a pilot's journal.
Pilot's Face Book Page
Face Book is the world's most popular method of social networking. Check in
here for a pilot's version.
Current updates on news and job opportunities in the world of aviation.These are travel and adventure updates associated with the "being there" rather than the "getting there."
The Bush Pilot
Knowledge based articles
and stories providing information & training required for operating
modern bush planes and helicopters. The Bush Pilot Company will show you
"how to take the bush out of the bush pilot", and better yet "how to take
the bush out of the bush operation."
On the Virtual
Horizons' Home Page, the next page down from here,
first time visitors can use the bush plane images for moving to the start
of these select pages: Feature Stories ; Aviation
Friends ; Helicopter
Friends ; eBush Communications or
the Bush Pilot Company.
Feature Stories has a collection of aviation
stories. Aviation Friends has the bush plane
photo gallery, job links, and great flying stories from any one of you.
Friends has vertical lift
stories and images including offshore flying. Prop Thrust has stories from the old and bold pilots.
The Bush Pilot Company presents knowledge based articles and stories on operating modern bush
planes. Every other page can be found from those four centers. For
revisits, bookmark the home page. From there you can use the text links to
jump ahead to your destination page.
Once inside, the attitude indicator (or
horizon) at the bottom right of each page will guide you back to where you
started or to the next destination of choice. The eBush Communications page is the way out. In
other words the "Exit." From there you can jump off into any one
of my Select Site locations.
Thanks for your support
