AOPA has redesigned its comprehensive AOPA Pilot Guides for the 2018 Bahamas and Caribbean editions. The guides, on sale now, have been a trusted source of flight planning information for the islands for more than 35 years.

The guides feature photographs of every airport in the islands (61 in the Bahamas and 88 in the Caribbean), and provide runway and navigation information, customs and immigration procedures, survival tips, and more.

Flying to the islands is only part of the fun—adventures await once you land. To help you plan the rest of your visit, the guides include hotel and recreation phone numbers, information about the local culture, the best way to get around on the islands, and what the food is like. Plus, read tips and suggestions from other pilots about where to stay and fun things to do.

"As a comprehensive resource for travelers and pilots alike, these guides make it easy to find everything you’d need to know about flying to the Bahamas and the Caribbean," said AOPA Senior Vice President of Marketing Jiri Marousek. "AOPA spent the last year making improvements, so the guides include even more information about airports as well as recommendations on places to eat, sleep, and play."

The guides cost $39.95 each; charts are $12.95 each. The guides are also available as an app on iTunes for $39.99 each.

AOPA provides links to downloadable forms that will be handy to take on the trip. Download the arrival report, Bahamas Transire, cruising permit, and general declaration forms from the Bahamas and Caribbean guides page.

"The redesign of the guides is part of a broader AOPA effort to give pilots more content about fun and exciting places to fly," Marousek said. "Expect more in 2018."
