First trip to the Bahamas-Simple!
by Bob RV-9 from Cape Coral FL USA 

Pros: Sturdy bound book with checklists and map and airport information.
Cons: None
Review: [This review refers to the 2013 edition.] After deciding to fly to the Bahamas,I needed to learn the proper procedures. I called flight service and they were very helpful. After explaining that this was my first international flight, the response was "get a Bahamas & Carribean Pilot's Guide. As a pilot you are responsible for ALL information concerning a flight. Follow the steps in the guide and have fun.

Can't do without it!
by Sylvain from St-Sauveur QC Canada 

Pros: Well organized, plenty of pictures, full of important information
Review: [This review refers to the 2013 edition.] There's no way you can plan and navigate in the Caribbean without this guide, it covers everything, from the runway information to the local hotel, immigration procedures, where you can get gaz and aerial pictures of each airport/island, runway conditions, etc etc... Fantastic help! Don't plan and don't leave without it. Get it, you won't regret it!

I will buy Next Year's Book, too
by Skylane Ray from Georgetown TX USA 

Pros: Excellent understanding of available airports, their characteristics and distance from the main town
Cons: I would have enjoyed more pictures of the hotels
Review: [This review refers to the 2012 edition.] The book is worth hours and hours of reading. There were a couple of possibilities for landing at more remote airports that I was interested in, but learned that they were no longer open - probably due to the storms from last year. That alone was worth the purchase. But the information in the book also enabled me to compare locations and make informed decisions pertaining to offerings within several areas which I could not otherwise have done.

Used this realtime a few times - definitely worth it
by Todd from Austin TX USA 

Pros: Comprehensive
Cons: Key info can be a little tough to locate because there is so much of it
Review: [This review refers to the 2012 edition.] Even when you spend a couple weeks going through the guide, talking to "been there done that" guys a few times, you'll still find yourself diverting to Nassau because of weather when you thought you were going straight to the Turks and Caicos, or something... that's when opening this book inflight is good. I mean, what's the weather in Nassau? XM weather isn't working over there. Who do I call? This book has it. It's out of date or wrong in a few places- but usually on the side of overkill. Customs hours in Isla Grande PR are wrong, no way to get them on the phone in advance, just do your EACRA and show up after 10 am and you'll be fine. Spend the bucks for the FBO's to spoon feed you when clearing customs, wherever you go, if there are extra bucks, which was good advice in the book. Flying straight from Providenciales T&C to San Juan - loved it - Miami center all the way. That's in the book.

Nice book but would like a few more things
by A Customer from Lorton VA USA 

Pros: Nice overview of resorts
Cons: Need more on transportation to resorts
Review: [This review refers to the 2012 edition.] The book was very nice but I would have liked to see more information of transportation to and from the airports.

Fairly Complete for the VFR Pilot
by Ed from Boylston MA USA 

Pros: Broad coverage not available elsewhere
Cons: Lacks detail and is out of date.
Review: [This review refers to the 2012 edition.] This book is fairly complete for the VFR pilot in flight. You will still need Jepp charts if you plan to fly any IFR (required at night) and it won't help much once you get on the ground. There is no info on how to find the various offices necessary to complete departure formalities, which towers will accept a flight plan by phone and which ones require you to make an in person visit. For example Nevis now requires every pilot to hire a handler. It is also a bit out of date since it is only updated annually. I hope that the forthcoming I-Pad version will allow pilots to post comments to keeep this manual up to date.

Great Guide
by Don Morrisey from Marshfield MA USA 

Pros: Detailed info and good pics
Cons: None
Review: [This review refers to the 2011 edition.] Lots of very detailed info and good pics. I wasn't sure I'd be up to this with all the logistics involved in going out of country in a single engine plane but this guide has set my mind at ease. Looks like a fairly simple process with examples of forms needed and step by step directions etc. The info on the airstrips and places to stay is excellent. Highly recommend

Exactly what's needed
by Larry5B6 from East Falmouth MA USA 

Pros: A ton of useful info in one place
Cons: The companion chart is somewhat useless - just buy a WAC chart for the area instead
Review: [This review refers to the 2011 edition.] Every December, I buy some planning material for a flight to the Bahamas. Sadly, every January, I pack it up for next year, without making the trip. Next year, however, will be different. Having said that, I can see that, despite being a bit pricey, this guide will be useful for both flights of fancy and real trips - there is a *LOT* of valuable information in one place. Real pretty pictured, too. If you're planning a flight to this area, or even just dreaming about it, buy the book.

The best resource for the Bahamas
by Robert from Miami FL USA 

Review: [This review refers to the 2010 edition.] Great guide for the Bahamas. If you use it feverishly the binder will tear the pages and the book will self destruct after a half dozen uses. We went to an Office Depot and had it spiral bound now we have the best Bahamas Guide on the planet.

Essential part of your Bahama's flying kit
by Tony from Winter Haven FL USA 

Review: [This review refers to the 2010 edition.] This is an excellent guide and a must have for all pilots visiting the Bahamas. I purchased the guide, the ifr and vfr charts , and needed all of them. It would have been nice if the IFR approach plates for nassau and freeport were included, a better airport diagram for nassau and freeport, and a few more notes about night flying and vhf coverage in the bahamas, but I am sure that will come with later updates. Don't leave home without it!

In a changeing area, they keep up with the changes
by E. Paul from Alexander City AL USA 

Pros: Great guide book with lots of inside information.
Cons: Everyone can't like or visit the same places, so there will be places you like which are not described.
Review: [This review refers to the 2010 edition.] Not only is this an interesting book to read just for entertainment, but it is essential if you plan to tour the island, especially for the first time. The airport information is accurate, and the photos of the runways help with identification (let's be honest, the navaids in the islands are not that great or reliable). The tips on where to go and what to see are great, making this a volume that would be helpful to any visitor, not just the pilots who are visiting.

I was very disappointed with this book
by Bruce from Wheeling WV USA 

Pros: Preparation information for flying to the Bahamas is (and has been for decades) well done.
Cons: I realize that it would be next to impossible to fly to every airport in the guide every year, but I do not think it is unreasonable to at least make phone calls to airports or advertisers to confirm the information that is going to be printed in each new edition. I have been using the guide off and on for over 25 years and after this passt years poor experience, I pulled out some of my older editions and was shocked to see the EXACT same information listed from decades ago. Navigating pilots and travellers who pay good money for this guide deserve better.
Review: [This review refers to the 2010 edition.] I flew around the Bahamas last year (2008-2009) with a 2007 Bahamas & Caribbean Pilot's Guide and saw so many things that were not as depicted in the guide that I figured it was because I had an out of date book. I bought the 2009 Guide thinking it would be updated and boy, was I wrong! Here are some examples where it is not only wrong but could be dangerous for pilots. 1) Cutlass Bay-MYCX airport on Cat Island. The guide shows it as asphalt in good condition (ppB114-115). In reality it has been closed for several years with barrels and barricades on the runway which has large holes in it and 8' trees growing on it. The guide also says a hangar is available for 'Olivia D'Windrift guests'. I walked around the hangar (after landing at New Bight and renting a car) and it is falling down with heavy equipment inside. I talked to people in a beachhouse nearby who said the airport was closed by the government years ago due to drug activity. Amazingly, the description of the 'Olivia D'Windrift' house for rent (ppB107) describes guests being met at the airport by the island hosts….I can only assume in a hearse because that is what you would need if you tried to land there. 2)Eleuthra: I have been to Eleuthra the past three years and the Cocodimama Resort has been closed all three years, yet it continues to be mentioned in the guide (ppB71). Locals say it hasn't been operating for more than five years. To list the Cotton Bay golf course as open for play (ppB73) is a joke. It is a cow pasture. After travelling 45 minutes by car (the last five over roads that required a HumVee to safely pass on) to play golf there, the clubhouse was falling down and there was no one there. I spoke to some people in a beachfront home who told me that other than grass cutting twice a year, the golf course hasn't been maintained since it was bought by a Columbian twenty years ago.

Very good to have but could be better
by A Customer from FL USA 

Pros: good start to doing homework, color, some good ads
Cons: too much on non bahamas for me, inconsistency in data
Review: [This review refers to the 2009 edition.] If going to Bahamas this is nice to have.  Seems to be a bit inconsitent on data provided for each airport and location and hard to make any hotel decisions from what is presented. This book really helps you find what you want to search on the web.

by Frank from Watchung, NJ USA 
Review: [This review refers to the 2009 edition.] I've purchased the guide in the past and I thought the old format was better. The past editions had better views of the airports as seen from the cockpit as the islands are approached, which had them easier to set up for a pattern. Maybe with almost universal GPS they feel that it is no longer needed.

You need this guide when flying in the Caribbean
by Brian Lloyd from Cameron Park, CA, USA 

Pros: Provides necessary entry, fuel, weather, and lodging phone numbers
Cons: Occasionally info about available fuel is wrong -- call ahead.
Review: [This review refers to the 2008 edition.] I moved down to St. Thomas for three years to set up a new business. I ended up flying all over the Caribbean in my Comanche and Aztec. I have purchased a new copy every year for 6 years. This book is the bible. The only other thing you need is the DOD Caribbean and South America Enroute Low Altitude chart L-5/L-6. One reviewer panned it for not having enough information. I have never found I needed more info about each island I went to. So if you are going to the Caribbean, you need this book. Period.

A must for dream pilots
by Stan from Warsaw, Poland 

Pros: well balanced information, useful in trip planning
Cons: ageing photos
Review: [This review refers to the 2008 edition.] Each time I visit the region I buy the B&CPG. The 2008 edition was in my pilot bag for the trip. It doesn't replace the Jeppesen's trip tool, but complete it in a very useful way. I wish that the authors have another opportunity to re-visit the islands to replace the pictures with new ones of better quality. Maybe a professional photographer wouldn't be a bad idea. Otherwise, the info is quite up to date, but not always as it is the case of FWI.

Not worth the money
by A Customer from Elizabethton, TN 

Pros: Covers most of the islands.
Cons: Not as thorough as expected.
Review: [This review refers to the 2007 edition.] Most if not all information in this book can be found online. I was under the impression that it came with all the carribean approach charts but it only has a few of them. It would be better to search online and buy a Jeppesen Caribbean Trip Kit. Which is what I do from now on.
