Just 75 miles separate West Palm Beach, Florida, and Grand Bahama Island, just one of dozens of destinations throughout the island chain known for beautiful beaches, relaxation, and recreation. Pilots are warmly welcomed, even to the point of the hosts picking up the fuel bill.
Out Islands hotel and resort bookings made through June 30 come with a $300 fuel credit for those who stay four nights or longer (terms and conditions apply), or a $150 credit is offered for those who fly to any two Out Islands during the same visit and stay at least two nights in participating hotels on each island.
Another online deal offers $250 in savings on a four-night (or longer) stay on Nassau and Paradise Island, or the Out Islands, for bookings made through May 31.
Pilots who have never flown to the Bahamas (or even those who have) can learn the ins and outs of getting in and out with a video, podcast, and detailed information compiled by AOPA. A 2014 feature took readers along for the ride, and the Bahamas & Caribbean Pilot’s Guide has long been the go-to source for the inside scoop on aviation travel to the islands.
