Exploring Camiguin From the Sky

My daughter, Luna and I stayed inside a plane’s hangar throughout our 5-day holiday in Camiguin Island.

It’s not just any hangar, but a first-class hangar with a big air-conditioned bedroom with cozy beds, a children’s creativity area and library, a media room in the mezzanine, a lounge area, and fast WIFI.

The mainstay in the hangar is a yellow American Champion Super Decathlon 8KCAB. It is the aircraft used by our host, Captain Sean Clarke in his sight-seeing and acro-adventure flights.

Capt. Sean, a certified pilot of Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, takes his guests on his cool yellow plane to amazing aerial views of the island’s natural gems.

Flying just above the island’s rugged peaks, Capt. Sean presents a close-up look of the island’s volcanic craters: Mount Vulcan, the old volcano that had swept the whole municipality of Catarman underwater and caused the Sunken Cemetery; the active Mount Hibok-Hibok, which sustains the myriad of hot springs on the island; the hidden dome of Mount Mambajao, and the verdant Guinsiliban Peak.
