I have always carried a US printed blanket letter from the FAA authorizing my amateur built aircraft into US airspace . Never been asked for it though.

I have wanted to fly the Baja peninsula even before my plane was completed. The border regulations and policies have always kept me away. Hope to someday start making trips down there. Thanks for the information.

A Kitplanes article on cross border (North and South) experimental travel would be great!

You must have a trusting face, I have had to produce it a few times.

We had a great time taking the 7A down the Baja some years ago, regulations weren't bad & policies were as expected, nothing a wad of low denomination USD bills wouldn't fix. Hope Mexico figures it out for Exp aircraft because after Covid we will be wanting a big adventure!


Policy hurdles are inevitable where ever you want to venture - Canada has revived the Mandatory 406 ELT requirement for foreign & domestic aircraft, too bad a small wad of bills won't fix this new but expected hurdle for US visitors.

I sent an email to Daniel Padilla at MMSF, where we usually clear from Sacramento. Not sure if he meant to yell at me or if his caps lock was just on but here's the thread of emails.

IT WAS ENFORCED THANKS TO A PILOT WHO GOT THE PERMIT WITH A SEA REY BUT REGARDLES OF BEING TOLD NOT TO LAND IN WATER HE KEEP TRYING TO BEND THE RULE UNTILL HE BREAKIT AND EVERYBODY HEARD THE NOISE. AND THATS THE RESULT.

ONCE AGAIN THE RESTRICTION COMES FROM ICAOS AND FAA.

Well, I cannot fault you for enforcing your laws. It’s interesting that, while nothing has changed with respect to the airworthiness certificates, that the “letter of the law” rather than the intent is suddenly enforced. LEt’s hope that a resolution soon presents itself.

IN RESUME
AS LONG AS FAA DOESNT REMOVE, THE LIMITATION ON FLYING IN OTHER COUNTRIES BEHIND THE REGISTRATION WHERE IT SAYS:

THAT THE AIRCRAFT CANT FLY OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES, UNLESS PERMISION GRANTED B THE COUNTRY WHERE THE FLIGTH IS INTENDED,
AND THAT IS ALSO COMMING FROM ICAO :
21. This aircraft does not meet the requirements of the applicable, comprehensive, and detailed airworthiness code, as provided by Annex 8 to the Convention on International Civil Aviation. The owner/operator of this aircraft must obtain written permission from another CAA before operating this aircraft in or over that country. That written permission must be carried aboard the aircraft together with the U.S. airworthiness certificate and, upon request, be made available to an FAA inspector or the CAA in the country of operation.


ALSO MEXICO DOESNT HAVE A SPECIAL PERMIT FOR EXPERIMENTALS AND IT DOESNT SEEM TO HAVE IN A NEAR BY FUTURE.

THE THEME IS ON THE TABLE BUT NO ANWSER YET.
