Fig Tree News TeamBahamas Habitat Announces March Fly-In
27 Jan '09

Take A Trip ... And, Do Some Good

Bahamas Habitat announced this week the upcoming Fly-In & Help Out weekend to Eleuthera in the Bahamas is scheduled for Thursday, March 5 through Sunday, March 8, 2009 and the organization is extending an open invitation to all interested pilots to join in this exciting mission.

"What makes this mission opportunity so unique is that the Bahamas are so easily accessible by general aviation aircraft and so in need that it provides the ideal opportunity for a mission minded pilot to give back to a community in need in an exciting and tax deductible way," explained John Armstrong, Vice President of Bahamas Habitat and Regional Manager for Dominion Aircraft Sales.

Pilots and crewmembers participating in the March Fly-In & Help Out mission will meet at Fort Pierce Airport (KFPR) on Thursday, March 5 for lunch and pilot briefings prior to departing to Eleuthera. Lodging and transportation on the island are arranged for the group.

"If you've ever wanted to fly your airplane to the Bahamas, this is the perfect way to learn the ropes while supporting a good cause," Armstrong said. "We had pilots join us from all over for our last Fly-In & Help Out event and in every case the experience really touched their hearts (see: Fly-In Help Out Touches Hearts post). We had about 14 aircraft on previous trips. We can house up to 60 people at Camp Symonette and we expect up to 20 aircraft for this next event."

Also, Bahamas Habitat has launched Dental Missions beginning in 2009 and the organization is seeking flying dentists and dental hygienists that wish to participated in these missions. Please see the details at the Dental Mission links on

"We hope to form partnerships with various aviation organizations including type clubs, flying clubs and aviation media organizations to grow and support this vital mission," continued Armstrong.
