Birds are pretty smart when it comes to flying where the weather is nice. As they head south this fall, you may want to follow them and enjoy the lingering warmth of Mexico and the Baja Peninsula. If you are going to attend AOPA Aviation Summit, Nov. 11 – 13 in Long Beach, Calif., consider joining the Fly-out to Baja and beyond, offered through Caribbean Sky Tours, which departs Long Beach on Sunday, Nov. 14 and returns to Calexico, Calif., on Friday, Nov. 19. Aircraft will stop in Loreto, Cabo San Lucas, and Alamos. Information about the fly-out is online.
There’s a lot involved in planning a trip across the border, but this one will be easier than most: Caribbean Sky Tours will process permits, flight plans and eAPIS, arrange for lodging, meals and tours as outlined in the itinerary, and assist participants throughout the entire trip. Although a lot of the work will be done for you as part of the fly-out group, the following information will be helpful:
AOPA will be hosting two Webinars on flying to Mexico on Tuesday, Oct. 12. Register for the Webinar online and plan to attend either the 3:00 or the 9:00 p.m. (Eastern time) session. We’ll make every effort to answer all of your questions. But, if we miss one, call AOPA’s Pilot Information Center Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Time, 1-800-USA-AOPA (872-2672).
