Bahamas Fly-out - Registration Full
October 29-31, 2017
In the Bahamas, nearly every day, the weather is as clear as the water. Cumulus clouds dot the sky at around 2,500 feet in the morning, rising to 7,500 feet in the afternoon - perfect conditions for flying!
The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism is offering AOPA Fly-In attendees a three-day, fun-in-the-sun flying adventure to the Bahamas. Depart as a group from either Peter O. Knight Airport (KTPF) or from your home airport. You’ll fly direct to Grand Bahama Island for two nights at the Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach Resort. Transportation, meals, and a special VIP meet and greet will all be arranged for you.
If you want even more sun, an additional fly-out to nearby Cat Island can be planned for you as well. Just check the box on the registration page to indicate your interest and the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism will contact you to arrange your own custom fly-out.
Assistance with customs and paperwork will be provided if needed.
