Pilots no longer need a 24-hour request for domestic flights

Pilots will no longer have to obtain a permit to fly, 24 hours in advance, after an agreement signed by the Dominican Air Force and the Airport Department, which eliminated that requirement to carry out their operation.

The Airport Department and the Dominican Air Force agreed to remove the 24-hour permission to pilots and aircraft owners for domestic flights.

The measure is contemplated in the inter-institutional collaboration and support agreement, signed by the executive director of the DA, Víctor Pichardo, and Major General Carlos Febrillet Rodríguez, general commander of the FARD, which also includes the control and administration of domestic airports. current and those to be built in the future.

“This issue of domestic airports, the elimination of 24 hours and the facilities of arrival and departure, has been a fight of the flying clubs for more than 20 years, which makes this day become historic for the aviation of the Dominican Republic, with the signing of this agreement”, expressed Pichardo after expressing his congratulations to Febrillet Rodríguez.

He pointed out that with this initiative, the country makes a real transformation in managing the flow of non-commercial private aviation, and converting domestic airports into suitable spaces for the relaunch of tourism.

Meanwhile, Febrillet Rodríguez described the agreement as unprecedented, after indicating that many obstacles are eliminated with it.

“Previously, we had eliminated 48 hours. Now, the 24 hours are eliminated, because there is no reason for any aircraft that wants to move from one point A to another point B, within Dominican territory, can do so, as long as it is not an international airport where there are other protocols,” he said.
