Default Navegueta 2012 Agentina

NAVEGUETA (NOOH-VE-GETTA) is a Spanish slang word meaning a gathering of people navigating together and derives from the word NAVEGAR (Navigate)

Roberto Buonocore from Argentina's RV Team in his RV7 and friends from the different countries of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay enbarqued this past 2 weeks (Oct 2012) in this first ever trip to the southest most airport in the american continent to the city of USHUEIA "Where the world ends and the sky beggins".

From Experimental to Certified Aircraft, this video is a celebration of what we are all about no matter where we at and a result of months of planning, permits and all sorts of you typical non sense gobernment burocracy!

Enjoy the video, the views and celebrate togheter the spirit of private flying. Watch those Glaciers!

Fell free to write Robbie a few lines. he is watching!

Simply beautiful trip. Thanks for posting it. I really need to finish mine so I can head down there. I've been to Argentina, once, for business but never got to see the country. I count it as my loss.

Awesome video. Once I finish my 10 I plan to figure out how to fly it from Oregon down to Patagonia.

Thanks for sharing this inspiring video!!
