Cuban Overflight Permit
Cuban overflight permits are required to fly through Cuban Airspace. However, there are a few airways that do not cross over Cuban territory where transit has been allowed without requiring an overflight permit.
Cuba is NO LONGER giving free overflight permits to light aircraft regardless of MTOW, ownership and purpose of flight. In the past, aircraft with an MTOW below 6,600 lbs, flown for tourism purposes by their owner, could be granted a FREE Cuban Overflight Permit. That exemption is no longer possible under the new rules and ALL aircraft that require Cuban Overflight Permits will be subject to the corresponding permit and airspace fees which must be paid to the Cuban government.
Southern Border Overflight Exemption
When returning to the USA from Mexico or any country south of 30 degrees north, you must make your first landing at a CBP Designated Airport Of Entry (AOE) closest to the point of border or coastline crossing, UNLESS you have a valid Southern Border Overflight Exemption (BOE) and you comply with the requirements of the Exemption.
All General Aviation operators utilizing a BOE must abide by all the applicable requirements and regulations, including:
As of June 2018 the Operator can use the BOE with any aircraft and any crewmembers, provided that the operator, aircraft and crewmembers are listed on the eAPIS manifest submitted to CBP for which said BOE is to be used and that the manifest is authorized by DHS.
NOTE: Processing time may take up to 30 days.
