Video: backcountry airstrip landing in Indonesia

You may practice short and soft field landings in your Cessna or Piper, but it’s probably nothing like this. Fly along with Mission Aviation Fellowship pilot Daniel Geaslen in a Quest Kodiak turboprop to see what a truly short and soft runway looks like. He flies into Nalca in Papua, and explains how this seemingly crazy landing is actually very safe if you follow a few important rules. It’s also another example of the amazing places general aviation can take you that no airline or car can.
