The Baja Bush Pilots has been renamed Bush Pilots International, expanding to include the US, Canada, The Bahamas, The Caribbean, and Colombia. In addition, the organization will continue to provide services in Mexico and Central America, as it has in the past.
Adding these additional countries, as well as providing flight information, insurance, and group trips for general aviation flights into Mexico and Central America for more than 30 years, the name “Bush Pilots International” better reflects the services that it provides, officials said.
Its website is being expanded to allow for Pilot Alerts and input from pilots in these countries. In addition to its group trips throughout Mexico and Central America, the company will now offer group trips in the US, Canada, and the islands of the Caribbean.
In addition to its Airports of Mexico flight guide, the company now carries Galen Hanselman’s Fly Idaho, Fly Utah, and Fly Montana pilots guides, as well as John & Betty Obradovich’s Bahamas and Caribbean Pilot’s Guide.
The Baja Bush Pilots was founded in 1970 by Arnold Senterfitt. In 1996, Jack and Karaen McCormick purchased the name and assets from Senterfitt and, over the past few years, increased its membership from 400 members to over 4,000 members. McCormick has been active working in Mexico including sitting on a Mexican senatorial committee that was charged to simplify rules and increase safety for GA aircraft flying in Mexico. In addition, he is a member of a Guatemalan flying club and works with flying clubs in Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica, and Panama. McCormick also publishes the airport guide book Airports of Mexico, an English language airport guide book that lists all airports and most airstrips in Mexico.
