The FAA is offering the Caribbean Flight Supplement online because the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s (NGA) print version expired on Dec. 20.
The NGA stopped publishing international chart information in October, but much of the Caribbean data will be available through the FAA, thanks to three years of work between AOPA and the government agencies.
The Caribbean instrument approach procedures (IAPs) also expired on Dec. 20, but the FAA has not been able to make them available. AOPA continues to work with the FAA to make the Caribbean IAPs available from the government, but pilots can currently purchase them through Jeppesen. See a list of international charts that the FAA is providing.
The FAA is seeking feedback on its Caribbean chart information. You can send your comments via e-mail.

As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
