Arnar Thor Emilsson, from Reykjavik, Iceland, learned to fly his father''s Cessna Skyhawk at a young age and has been an active pilot ever since. he started his professional flying career in 2005, operating de Havilland Twin Otters for Air Iceland. Later he graduated to the Dash 8-200 and -400 types, flying domestic routes in Iceland, as well as to remote destinations in Greenland. Arnar's passion for bush flying and STOL aircraft has him continually learning as he flies his Super Cub off-airport in the land famous for its rugged volcanic terrain, as well enjoying the outdoors as a skier, and rock and ice climber.
Halfway around the world from the usual bush flying haunts lies the isolated Scandinavian island of Iceland: the "land of ice and fire", so named for its mountains, glaciers, and volcanoes. This is just as likely a place to explore by bushplane as any in Alaska or Canada. Super Cub pilot Arnar Thor Emilsson takes us on a photographic journey through the northern paradise he calls home.
