    Run down coast to Valparaiso then follow hwy 68 past Lago Penuelas lake to Santiago international airport.

    ETA 1512 UT

    P.S. Cheated with smart phone for course, distance, and sight reductions. If charts available then a waypoint at Juan Fernandez Island would be useful for pre-landfall positioning.              

    I plotted the waypoints on google earth.

    • The runway of Aerodromo Robinson Crusoe is only 2904 ft long. Therefore the island cannot be used for an emergency landing but would enable the pilots to confirm track.
    • The landfall offset is only 185nm or approximately 20 minutes flying time. Is that sufficient to ensure that the crew can have confidence in the "turn right at the coast" instruction?
    • Bradshawing is the navigational technique you recommend from Valparaiso to the destination.
