I really enjoyed the Aeropostal DVD. It gave us a nice perspective and overview of Venezuela and I felt it was a very scenic country. I really enjoyed the flights over the coast and the mountain ranges were very impressive as well. The airport in Caracas was just as a relative described it. It sits on a lower elevation with the city on a mountain or plateau. The most interesting flights in my opinion were to Aruba in the classic three holer and in the DC-9-30 on a roundtrip from Caracas to San Antonio. This is because the airport in San Antonio is situated between mountains with a shorter runway and we can truly see the more powerful engines installed on the airline's DC-9-30s to full effect as it was described to us at some point in the program. Very quick accelaration and rotation out of this airport, fascinating! I also liked the tour of the maintenance facilities at the beginning of this program. Without those dedicated personnel our pilots in the videos wouldn't be able to show us what they do. A great DVD for those out there who like classic jets. Jeff Schapira, CANADA

Aeropostal staff and pilots are dedicated professional committed to provide good service. Beautiful scenery! Thank you to the people of Aeropostal. Carlos Montero, USA

Another great DVD from Just Planes, with this time a nice South American based airline. I liked this DVD especially cause it showed a number of approaches in Caracas by day and night, also it shows a number of Caribean destinations and above all I like DC-9s. Donald Klaassen, NETHERLANDS
I bought 4 DVD's, Avicsa, Cubana, Gol and Aeropostal. You have excellent dvd's! I send you a congratulations. Thank you for bringing us videos of the fantastic world of aviation! Ever Rosas, MEXICO
The Aeropostal DVD is an excellent DVD. This was my 3rd DVD that I had ordered. The views are extremely beautiful. I didn't know that on the top of the mountains of Venezuela has snow. I live just 45 minutes of flight from Venezuela, but never saw snow on the mountains when I flew to Venezuela. There was an excellent view also on the controls when the aircraft is going to land or take off. The part that I loved the most is when the aircraft passes over Curacao to Aruba. I recommend everyone to buy this DVD to see what I mean. Congratulations with this excellent DVD. Keep it up with the good work. And I hope to see more DVDs that fly in the Caribbean.

This is an excellent dvd. I enjoyed it very much… I loved the landscapes of the homeland; it was also great to hear some Spanish-speaking crews for a change. I hope to see more videos of South American airlines!! Daniel P., PUERTO RICO
Definitely great. Carlos Pachon, MEXICO
Congratulations for this excellent DVD. You are the first ones to finally show a complete flight inside a DC-9, in all its versions. The footage inside and outside the cockpit is beautiful, and the landscapes are breathtaking. Capt. Branca's explanation on the various DC-9 systems an flight intruments in very interesting. I recommend this DVD to all those who want to see a beautiful and glorious airplane like DC-9. Amos Migliavacca, ITALY
Another hit and excellent presentation from Just Planes! It is very interesting to see the DC 9 variants operate within Venezuela. The cockpit explanation is very well done. Also the B 727 flights are very nice. This is must see DVD for those interested in seeing the DC 9 flying. Congratulations again to the JP team for this outstanding DVD! Keep them coming!  Joaquin Gutierrez Kieczka, VENEZUELA
