The Islands of The Bahamas Aviation Department recently launched The Bahamas Gateway FBOs program, with several operations located throughout South Florida to make it increasingly easier for private pilots to get travel procedural information to fly to and from the various Bahama Islands.
Four have been identified as Bahamas Gateway FBOs: Miami Executive Aviation at Opa Locka Airport; Banyan Air Service at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport; Galaxy Aviation of Palm Beach at Stuart/Palm Beach Airport; and Air Center at St. Lucie International Airport.
Personnel at the selected FBOs have been trained by the Bahamas Tourist Office staff on all facets of U.S. and Bahamas requirements of aircraft leaving/arriving the U.S. mainland. The selected FBOs are equipped to provide Customs and Immigration information as well as supplies and up-to-the minute information on the Bahamas.
