Each week one of our 7 FIR's will host this event, we will feature

to fly, precision approaches, non-precision approaches, short fields,

terrain challenges we have it all. Whether you like long or short flights,

the Caribbean is situated in easy reach of the US, Mexico and South America.

Come enjoy the beauty as you hop from Island to Island and discover the

hidden treasures of the Caribbean.

**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.
