Destination Bahamas

The event will attract not only the general aviation and marine community but also many residents from the surrounding Northeast Florida area. General aviation pilots will have the opportunity to “Fly-in” and be hosted by Galaxy Aviation. Special fuel prices and hotel rates have been secured for this event.

A 12,000 square foot “state-of-the-art” airline terminal will be transformed into a Bahamian island paradise. With the help of the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, the Northeast Florida Regional Airport anticipates hosting exhibitors that will promote all the wonderful things offered in the Islands. Air charter companies will also be on hand showcasing their aircraft for travel to and from the Bahamas. Marine related businesses will be promoting fishing, diving, snorkeling and more. Traditional Bahamian food will be offered for lunch and a live performance by a Bahamas Junkanoo band will entertain the attendees.

Seminars on flight planning, customs procedures and safety for "over water flight" will be conducted by the FAA and Department of Homeland Security.

Marketing efforts for this event will target the general aviation community in Florida as well as Georgia and the Carolinas. Exhibitor entry is $350.00 and sponsorship opportunities are available.
