**Note: Many Caribbean Airports have limited Gates/Parking, it is suggested that "Crash Detection" is turned off. If you use FSPAX or other similar programs, please load these programs "offline" then connect to VATSIM for departure or upon arrival, disconnect then unload using these programs. This helps ensure there is space for other aircraft since parking may be limited at some airports. Many airports also require backtrack for landing and departing runways, If you need to backtrack, please expedite your movements so the next aircraft can depart or arrive with minimal delay. Please be prepared for possible Gate Holds, Holding Patterns or possible Diversions to alternate airports. Please check in advance the size of aircraft that can be accommodated at the airports your arriving and departing from. Many airports throughout the Caribbean are unable to handle larger aircraft, Turboprops are common for flights from Island to Island while larger Jets are accommodated at the larger airports.
