St Barts Gustaf III Airport (also known as St Barths) is a short flight from Princess Juliana airport on St Maarten, however St Barts' short runway means that the airport is only accessible by small propeller aircraft.
Aircraft approach the airport over the island's hills, and take off over the heads of sunbathers on St Jean beach.
Due to the runway restrictions and wind patterns around the airport pilots must be specially trained to fly into St Barts Airport.
