Pilots, Public Invited To Hospitality Event
If it's cold where you are, here's a warm thought. The Third
Annual Bahamas Ministry Of Tourism and Aviation (BMOTA) Bahamas Day
aviation and cultural event will take place February 25th at Miami
Executive Aviation, Opa Locka Executive Airport, Opa Locka Florida,
from 1000-1500. The event is sponsored annually by The Islands Of
The Bahamas (TIOTB) to assist pilots who want to fly their aircraft
to the islands, but will also be open to members of the public who
desire general information on The Bahamas as well as information on
charter flights and accommodations.
One of the main objectives of the event is to educate general
aviation pilots on the ease of flying to TIOTB and therefore U. S.
Customs will provide an eAPIS seminar to help pilots understand
eAPIS requirements and how to file on-line. Other seminars for the
benefit of pilots flying to The Bahamas will also be featured and
The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Bahamian Customs officials will
be on hand to answer any additional questions.
Booths at the event will showcase information on accommodations,
dining, activities and shopping in The Islands of The Bahamas, as
well as general aviation pilot information and equipment.
As at past Bahamas Day events, a smorgasbord of Bahamas culture
will be presented including a lunch featuring authentic Bahamian
cuisine. Past meals have included traditional dishes such as peas
n' rice and conchfritters. A fully regaled Bahamas Police Officer
will be on hand for picture taking opportunities and the ultimate
Bahamian cultural experience of Bahamas Junkanoo will provide the
unique, explosive and rhythmic sounds of the island nation.
The Bahamas Day event is one of the major marketing and
promotional initiatives of the country’s aviation department,
based in Florida under the leadership of Aviation Chief, Greg
Rolle. The event is hosted each year by one of The Bahamas’s
Preferred Gateway partners along the Florida coast and previous
host have included Banyan Air Service at Fort Lauderdale Executive
Airport and Showalter Flying Service, Orlando Executive
