good morning:
I am interested in receiving information about the possibility of renting a plane, because I am part of a project for the publication of a book of 500 years of discovery of the Panama Canal, so be conducted aerial photo shots from the strait Bering to Cape Horn (Chile. We seek help from you with information on costs and practicalities of renting a Cessna 172 or similar (consider that will take aerial photo) if possible, for flight from Nome to Wales (Bering Strait) and to Pastol Bay (mouth Yukon river).
