Caribbean Islands Open Airspace To Experimental Aircraft

Streamlines Procedures, Reduces Fees For Private Pilots

Caribbean Flying Adventures, which produces a pilot’s guide for the Bahamas and Caribbean, has been working for years with many governments in the Caribbean to reduce airports fees and streamline airport procedures for private pilots. The FAA requirement that experimental aircraft obtain permission from Caribbean countries before flying to those destinations has prevented a lot of pilots from experiencing the joy of Island flying.

Caribbean Flying Adventures collaborated for many months with aviation officials in The Caymans Islands and Dominican Republic and successfully obtained from both island nations a blanket authorization for experimental aircraft to operate in their respective airspace. The authorizations are effective July 2012 – just in time for AirVenture 2012.

Both Islands will be in attendance at AirVenture in the “Caribbean Corner” organized by CaribbeanFlyingAdventures.com.

There are more than 33,000 experimental aircraft in the U.S.  All of these aircraft can now fly legally and safely to The Dominican Republic and to The Cayman Islands. Flights to The Caymans Islands are IFR only while in Cuban airspace.
