It takes a five to seven hour bus ride to get from Panama City to Santa Catalina. With the airstrip, this would be reduced to roughly one hour.

The Construction

To construct the airstrip, it took some heavy equipment.

It took a few months to build the airstrip. We brought in excavators, road rollers, bulldozers, backhoes, and dump trucks to build today's 3.000 feet airstrip.

The Environmental Impact Study

The hardest part was to pass the environmental impact study as Lago Bay houses various exotic birds, reptiles and other species. With this out of the way, the official recognition and certification of authorities is only a matter of time.

The airstrip today

Having passed the environmental impact study, the official recognition and certification of authorities is only a matter of time. We await certification by the end of 2021.
