Default Airspace

The day the Bahamas manages, key word being manages, their airspace, will be the day they get a "A." In customer service, hope it happens sooner than later.

I just registered mine on their aviation site in 3 minutes for free and printed out my certificate of aircraft registration. Easy peasy

Are you sure that was for US operators and not Bahamian Nationals?

From my perspective it seems the only thing that matters is having it registered when you go through customs whether you're local or not. After that don't fly it next to the airport ad you should be okay.

Gotcha. I know they had a pretty easy registration process (for Bahamian citizens), but foreigners have to receive a permission letter. I queried them on the status of my request a couple weeks ago and they told me to hang tight. They were inundated with requests and would get to mine closer to our trip date.

How long are they (permission letters) good for?

Last I knew you just sign up on the website and you're registered for your aircraft. Didn't know it expired after a certain time.

It's good for the duration of your trip. I'm going twice this summer and will need to request two separate authorizations.

Got a link? Please forgive my pessimism. It was made clear what we have to do so this just seems too easy.

Appeals court strikes down registering drones in US. Just seemed fitting for this conversation. Not sure how this will now effect the Bahamas laws.

Are you kidding? Do you think I produced the form myself?

Www.bcaa.gov.bs. tab on right in RED says DRONE

Register. They email a reg# immediately, login, fill out the short form, and you have your registration. No fee.

No, not at all. Just wanted to follow the link and read about it. Not questioning whether it exists or not. Just lazy I guess.

For you all that are registering in the Bahamas your drones, I did as well, and when I sent the Bahamian Aviation office a request for a letter of authorization to fly there, and submitted all the required information, including the Bahamian registration info, Gregory Edwards, who is apparently in charge of drone LOA's, said to throw the Bahamian registration away as it would be voided out.
He said the reasons were: You have to be a Bahamian National or permanent resident of Bahamas to register an aircraft or drone in the Bahamas, and also you cannot have an aircraft (drone) registered in more than one country.

He also told me they were inundated with applications for LOA's and were issuing them according to when your trip time was.

Thanks for confirming my suspicion. That is exactly how I understood it.

Interesting. The form does allowing w you to select a foreign corporation as an owner not just Bahamian national.

I've been through Bahamian customs at least 30X. They are about the most laid back customs people on the planet. I believe if you have the registration they are not going to confiscate your drone. Once you get it there don't fly it over Paradise Island or be an idiot. I'm taking mine on my boat. I'll post lots of pics when I return.

Also, my drone is not registered in more than one country, only Bahamas. I never registered it in the U.S. Lastly, the application clearly states that a U.S. Corp can register. So if they give me a hard time I will go online and register it under my Corporation, which will take another 3 minutes.
