Obtaining international permits to comply with every country’s overflight and landing requirements can become an added burden in your international flight planning process. Part 135 Charter Operations are subject to a separate set of regulations and requirements that need to be met to operate legally in most countries. If you need assistance in obtaining the required permits, we can help.
The service includes the following country specific permits:
Cuba overflight permits: Single trip or monthly blanket permit
Central America permits: Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama
South America permits: Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname and Uruguay
The U.S. Federal Code of regulations 122.24 requires that aircraft arriving in the U.S. from points south of the border “shall land for Customs processing at the nearest designated airport to the border or coastline crossing point”. This requirement can result in unnecessary and expensive stops for General Aviation aircraft returning to the U.S. from Mexico, The Bahamas, Caribbean and other points south of the border. Having a CBP on-time or one-year “blanket” Overflight Exemption allows you to fly directly to an airport in the U.S. where CBP is present that is convenient to your itinerary and final destination. We can assist with the prompt and correct filing of the exemption with the appropriate CBP port before your next international flight.
For one-time permits please allow up to 15 days for processing. For one-year blanket permits we recommend to request the service 30 days in advance.
Foreign countries have their own unique regulations covering non-scheduled commercial traffic to/from their countries. Not having the correct permits and documentation can result in fines, delays or worse. Be in compliance before making your international trip by verifying country specific documentation requirements with us and have us process the permit needed.
I believe there is something out there watching us.
Unfortunately, it's the government.
