Low pass at Punta de Jandia strip, Fuerteventura

This landing strip was built during the 2nd World War by Gustav Winter, and it was the first landing strip on Fuerteventura. It is situated in the south of the island, at Punta de Jandรญa. Now it’s not being used, but it’s nice to make a low pass is always a great fun!

Hope you’ll enjoy the video as we enjoyed the low pass!

Safe flying ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Finally a new airport in the Canarian region! It might look a bit worn out but you gotta get started somewhere. With an impressive length of 1.000 m and 60 m of width it’s not exactly Qamdo Bamda Airport but there’s room for improvement. A bodega at walking distance and inviting beaches are assets beyond competition. Not to mention a completely lack of neighbors whining over noisy airplanes. Why not considering buying this marvel and start a flight school business? No need to refresh the existing airport buildings, an army tent will do.

    • There are more like this, and even better! On a cliff for example. If you overshoot the approach, you fail… ๐Ÿ˜€
      This one has 800 meters, more than enough for our PA28 ๐Ÿ˜€ A flight school? Eeh… Who would like to mess with the local authorities… But you’re right, no buildings would be necessary a simple army tent would be a great solution ๐Ÿ˜€ However, sometimes it can get quite windy there… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Thanks for sharing this Stan really enjoyed watching this ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve visited Fuerteventura a couple of times and would imagine a low pass over the island would be an amazing experience.

    Keep up the great work Stan ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. FYI, this strip was NOT built during the 2nd World War by Gustav Winter (also YouTube description is wrong, as are many other websites). The strip was built later in 60s/70s for military and possibly later tourism, but was never really used.

    The southwest to northeast strip built by Gustav Winter is located east of Puerto de la Cruz village and barely visible, the road crosses the strip today, see here: https://goo.gl/maps/vxsGtwo2eMs

    Thanks for correcting the video description.

    • Thank you Don Fuerte for rectifying this information.

      My article was based on a numerous searches indeed in Google.

      If I may ask, what is the source of your information?

      All the best,
      Stan
