The easiest and quickest method to get around in the Falkland Islands is to charter the small red coloured, short take off and landing aircraft used by the Falkland Islands Air Services (FIGAS), which services many of the islands on a regular basis. These aircraft are literally two engines and load space commanded by some of best bush pilots on the planet. The weather in the Falkland's can be fickle, but these planes seem to always fly in conditions that other mainstream pilots would shy away from. I can remember quite a few crosswind landing approaches in which the offset angle to the dirt strip was in the order of 25 degrees and the wind gusting 30 knots!.
