The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) report the Bahamas and Caribbean Pilot’s Guides 2017 update is available, with AOPA serving as the new publisher of the two books.
The Bahamas Pilot’s Guide and the Caribbean Pilot’s Guide have been published since 1979 and contain maps, procedures, Customs and Immigration information, phone numbers, frequencies, fuel availability, aerial photos, forms, and other useful information for trip planning.
“Publishing the Bahamas and Caribbean Pilot’s Guide is part of a broader AOPA strategy to connect aviators with destinations and provide tools and inspiration to explore new and exciting places both in the United States and GA-accessible neighbors,” said AOPA Senior Vice President of Marketing Jiri Marousek.
Marousek also noted that it is about 50 miles from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Bimini, the westernmost Bahamas island, and that the Bahamian government has worked to make the country accessible to a diverse group of aviators, including sport pilots.
The books cost $34.95 each and are available on AOPA’s website.
