Checklist to Enter

Flying a private plane to The Bahamas is truly simple and well within the capabilities of the lightest single engine aircraft. Nearly every day, our weather is as clear as our water. Cumulus clouds dot blue skies at around 2,500 feet in the morning, rising to 7,500 feet in the afternoon, creating ideal flying conditions for private pilots.

Wherever you’re headed, every island has an airport with fast customs service and first-rate facilities, and more than 20 Bahamas- and U.S.-based FBOs offer the service and support you need for a safe, seamless experience.
