I made numerous donations to the local hospital driving to Rosario beach in college. Weird they had motorcycle cops collecting the donations!

Please stay on topic.

This thread is important to those who care about flying to Mexico.

If you have new updated information regarding this, great. But there is no need to hear about anecdotal stories obout rental cars and motorcycle cops.

I can tell you that the paperwork can seem daunting at first, simply because they are foreign procedures. So I understand the concerns of pilots new to Mexico flying. I was in your shoes before. But it's basically a once-per-year thing, and after you have the multi entry permiso, subsequent trips are not administratively onerous. I absolutely love flying there. Checking in/out at a port of call is no big deal, and totally worth it in my humble opinion.
My recommendation is to use a local FBO or handler the first time you go. Once you learn the procedures then you realize, just like the US, it isn't that big a deal.

Graft and bribes are well known issues in Mexico. Pointing it out isn't racism or bigotry.

This is not an appropriate forum.

Default Bears in Mexico

Iíve flown to MMGM many times. Always a pleasant experience. Professional airport personnel every time that make it easy to return. The BBP organization is working a solution right now to allow EXP aircraft entry and exit from Mexicoís airports. If you feed the bears they wonít rely on their own ability, so donít feed the bears.

Default BBP needs your help

I received a request to post the following in reference to the BBP.

Bush Pilots International <membership@bushpilotsinternational.com>


Experimental Aircraft Update, Critical Request

As indicated in my Forum post yesterday, we are moving forward with Mexico regarding authorizations for Foreign Experimental Aircraft to fly in Mexico.

It was indicated in our first meeting that Mexican law does allow for procedures to accept non-certificated aircraft in Mexico and although in the past, this was allowed without special permission, now legal procedures must be established and completed for this to continue....

One huge question was the volume and kind of foreign aircraft that wish Mexican authorization.
In order to give a valid estimate, I am requesting that anyone who wishes to fly to Mexico in a non-Certificated aircraft provide me the following information. Please understand that this information is non-committal and only will be used by Mexico to determine the need for this special procedure:

1) Type of non-certificated aircraft (Fixed wing, Rotating wing, Paraglider, Delta wing, Glider)
2) If Kit, Make (Manufacturer)
3) Model of Kit (Example RV-6)
4) Who Assembled the aircraft (Owner, Third Party, unknown)
5) Year aircraft was first flown (Yep, put in a date)

Please provide the above information by number in your reply as well as any other information you wish to provide and we will tabulate and present to AFAC.

I need to have this information put together and presented by this Friday, March 19.
You need to do your part. This Alert is going to some 9,000 current and past current BBP Members.

Letís get this thing put together, accepted, and get experimental aircraft back into Mexico.
