Pilotsencouraged to plan ahead
February 18, 2022
Contrary to what some are hearing, the Cayman Islands are open and welcoming to general aviation travel.
Landing slots and fees do remain in line with what pilots have expected from airports and FBOs in the Caymans; according to AOPA’s partner CST Flight Services, landing fees at Owen Roberts International Airport remain $10 to $15 USD for a Cessna 182 with parking still at $5 per day USD. AOPA continually monitors FBO fees and transparency in the United States and abroad.
If the Cayman Islands are on your flight radar, take a look at this important document on slot approvals and crew requirements from the Cayman Islands Airports Authority. You also should call ahead and check on any increased ground handling fees, Cuban overflight permits, and COVID guidelines.
