CenAm 2017 

Join the BBP as we add another page to our book of memories as we do our 20th CenAm 

trip.  We meet informally in Laredo Texas and then on the following morning, we depart for Veracruz MX for day one of the trip. Then it is on to Guatemala as we visit Tikal, Rio Dulce, Chichicastanago, and Guatemala City.
This is one of my favorite trips....  Nine days south of the border including the people, the destination, the flying, and a lot more. Interested....

Whales 2017 

This year will find us in Loreto Mexico at the "Loreto Bay Golf Resort and Spa". This beautiful golf resort is located on one of the nicest beaches in all of Baja, offers an unlimited number of things to do, and promises to be a great change from downtown Loreto. In addition to the resort pool and white beaches, complementary things to do include mountain biking, paddle boating, kayaking, paddle surfing, and snorkeling.  And for a little more money, there is golf, cave tours, day trips into the mountains, boat tours, and more.
And we have not forgotten about old town Loreto as we have made special arrangements with the taxi people, they will be waiting to take you into Loreto for its shopping, food, and cultural experience

Cuba 2017; April 7, 2017
Watch our site for our next Cuban escorted trip scheduled for April.  I have lost count of the trips we have made but my estimate is that we have taken over 200 members over the past short period of years.  

Open soon, still working out several details

Cuba "self trips"

We now provide two ways for you to visit Cuba, all legal and meet the requirements of both the Cuban and US governments.

Option 1)  An all-inclusive group trip lead by BBP staff. The BBP takes care of all paperwork for you as well as your aircraft. A typical trip is 6 days, 5 nights and is in three different Cuban Cities.  Included are rooms, meals, (excluding lunches) scheduled ground transportation, and scheduled tours.  On these trips, both Claudia and Jack are your tour leaders.
Option 2)  The BBP will put together a custom trip to fit the unique needs of a person.  We will manage the entire trip be it one or more locations in Cuba regarding both the air and ground needs.  Per OFAC rules and guidelines, we provide a BBP person to accompany you as a personal guide while in Cuba.



Member/Public Alerts (from top of page)


BBP APIS for both Mexico and US is up to 600 flights a month  
11/03/2016  The BBP eAPIS continues to grow. Our most recent report reflects that the BBP eAPIS is transmitting over 600 flight approvals a month.  And as we go into into winter, the most traveled time of the year, this number is bound to increase.  
Filing to both the US and Mexico through special portals, our program contains databases that remembers past flights,  aircraft, crew, passengers, and more.
And it will do a reverse manifest, file to go down, reverse and file you to come back. 
And this services is being provided to our members at no charge….

Mexican law requires all GA flights to have submitted an APIS whenever crossing the border.  In the near future, the hammer is going to come down and if you are not filing a MX APIS, you might have some serious explaining to do.
How do you use our APIS.  If you are a current member, just go into the Member section and click on APIS.  It is easy and friendly to use. If you are not a member or not current, go to our website and either update your membership or click on “Become a Member
