2011 Bahamas & Caribbean Pilot's Guide Now On The iPad

By Shane Nolan

April 17, 2011 - The 2011 Bahamas & Caribbean Pilot's Guide is unbelievably beautiful and a great tool on the iPad. (If you like the book . . . you're gonna love the iPad app.) The photos are stunning. The search feature lets you easily find what you're looking for.  

The searchable index lets you run down through the island chains to find the island or airport you want. The bookmark feature lets you keep track of your favorites. The Bahamas & Caribbean Pilot's Guide app is a beautiful presentation of this well-known and widely used publication. 

The Bahamas & Caribbean Pilot's Guide has been updated and published every year since 1979. After 33 years in print, the Bahamas & Caribbean Pilot's Guide remains the only single-source reference for island travel. The Guide has complete airport information for the entire Bahamas & Caribbean region, as well as island and travel information.  

Sections include General Information and procedures, Islands of the Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, Hispaniola/Cuba, Western Caribbean (Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Yucatan, Belize and Roatan), Puerto Rico & U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Eastern Caribbean (Anguilla south to Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao), United States (Florida Airports of Entry) and Survival.

The Pilot's Guide is packed full of color photos, including an aerial photo of every airport in the Bahamas & Caribbean. Everything a pilot needs to know is included: phone numbers for airport managers and Customs & Immigration, frequencies, fuel availability, runway details, hours, procedures, GPS designators as well as longs & lats (a necessity to find some of the small airports that won't be in your GPS database.)  

The general information section covers customs, flight plans, forms, procedures, and required equipment in great detail. You don't have to spend hours on the web to glean bits and pieces of information - it's all right here in one beautiful application with nearly a thousand color photos! It's a must-have in the cockpit as you fly through the islands. 

You'll be able to identify airports by the aerial photographs as you fly over them - the pictures really are worth a thousand words. With extensive accommodations and recreational details and phone numbers, this application also helps you plan where to go, where to stay and what to do.


The 2011 Bahamas & Caribbean Pilot's Guide app is a must-have for your next trip to the islands! Grab your straw hat, sunglasses, and your iPad. Flying to the islands is fun, exciting - and easy -- the biggest hurdle is deciding where to go and what to do.


Because of mutual cooperation between the FAA and the Islands of the Bahamas, the procedures are straightforward, forms are simple, and the fees are minimal. With the islands only a few minutes off the coast of Florida, what are you waiting for? The 2011 Bahamas & Caribbean Pilot's Guide app for the iPad is available from the App Store.
