Cuba 2017; April 7, 2017
Cuba is now open.  Set to be back to back with Sun & Fun, now you can have the best of two worlds.  I have lost count of the number of members I have taken to the island however, I know the ins and outs of Cuba as well as the best places to get the experence you are looking for.

Note, trip closes on March 12, deadline for those who have registered to send additional aircraft paperwork has been moved to March 19.  Looking like about 7 aircraft with about 20 people. Perfect size trip....  Jack

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.

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”
