There are luggage restrictions in place on any itinerary, but this is especially the case with light aircraft transfers. There are strict luggage restrictions in this case for the following reasons:
- Light aircraft are designed with a maximum bodyweight and luggage weight allowance in mind.
- Light aircraft have physical space restrictions that have to be taken into account.
- Most airfields are over 3000 ft above sea level and located in the tropics. These conditions limit the carrying capacities of the aircraft operating in these regions.
- Luggage limitations for light aircraft also apply to helicopter and scenic flights.
