Well, there are two possible ways to get there. The first, and most recommended, is to use an airline flying to either of two regular airports of Juan de Nova in Madagascar. The second and more complicated is to use one of the chartered Fokker aircraft available at the airport of the island. However, for a amateur, this second option is still interesting and urgent.
An aircraft transfer from the airport to town near the island can be done by helicopter, provided the transfer can be requested in advance. Landing field also available in a at the island (City of Morondava). The duration of the transfer is about 30 minutes.
You only settle there for a night. Then, you can go to continue your exploration farther east with a stopover for as long as it takes you. Finally, you can use again the rail transport to take you back to Madagascar.
The first difficulties encountered by the Polish G2 europe expedition, which stopped in an airstrip in the island in 1983, were reflected first on the magnetic deviation (about -4). A second difficulty was to take off (a slow flight without a previous experience spoiled the takeoff of the aircraft. This aircraft performed badly. The pilot had to decrease the collective of the main gear (already set on "pitot") and take off a little further, well beyond the edge of the airstrip. d2c66b5586
