Our Episode #5 (Part 1) – Greenland: The Last Frontier with René Petersen.
We had the chance to chat with René Petersen aka @rep.air from Greenland 🇬🇱
In this two two parts episode, we learn what it means to live on a still truly Last Frontier and fly the only bush plane in the entire country of Greenland!
René Petersen was born and raised in Greenland´s capital Nuuk. He has now been working for thirty years as a helicopter mechanic and logged almost three thousand hours on the left seat of different helicopters mostly in Greenland. He is also a private pilot for many years but most of all, he is the only owner of a bush plane (an experimental registered Just Aircraft Super STOL) in Greenland and one of the only two guys flying private GA in the entire country… which is the considered to be the biggest island in the world!
As you will discover, Greenland is really a true Last Frontier deeply connected to both European and North American continents.
René explains us how he came to aviation, what it means to fly his Super STOL in one of the most remote country on the planet (mostly alone) but also simply living up north, dealing with the weather and the wild animals.
