Flying The Bahamas is truly simple, well within the capabilities of the lightest single engine aircraft. Leaving the Florida east coast, first landfalls occur at Grand Bahama Island (60 NM) or Bimini (50 NM). Overlapping VOR/DME of NOB signals provide course guidance from the US coast and throughout the most frequently traveled routes in the Bahamas.
