Message from Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands

August 27, 2008

Dear Cayman Islands Business Partners,

As we continue to monitor the predicted path of T/S Gustav, I would like to take this opportunity to remind those of you in the business community, who maybe considering either pre or post weather evacuation charters from the territory, of the requirement for all air transport operations to be duly licensed. As such, it is a requirement of the Air Navigation (Overseas Territory) Order 2007, that all scheduled and non-scheduled air transport operations have the appropriate operating permit.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAACI) will process these as received in the shortest time possible once all required technical aviation documentation has been received with the application. Once the operating permit has been granted, applicants are encouraged to check with the Cayman Islands Airports Authority (CIAA) in regards to airport operating times, landing fees, etc. The appropriate contact at the CIAA would be Mr. Walter Ebanks, Senior Manager of Air Traffic Services, [email protected] or 345-925-5174.

The check-list of required documents, associated fees, application form etc., can all be found on the CAACI website at
