The Dominican Republic’s Civil Aviation Institute (IDAC) has projected the Dominican Republic at the most important air show in the United States as the next great destination for international private aviation in Latin America.
The IDAC delegation at the EAA AirVenture Fair, held July 24-31 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, highlighted during its participation in the event that the Congress of the Dominican Republic has just approved the new law for the Promotion and Competitiveness of Civil Aviation in the interest of attracting new domestic and foreign investment in this segment of the economy.
They have also highlighted the new protocol that will govern the operation of domestic flights, approved by decree by President Luis Abinader, to facilitate the operation of domestic flights, as part of a strategy to make the Dominican Republic the leading power in aviation tourism in the Caribbean.
The new regulation creates the conditions for the country to compete advantageously for the large aviation tourism market, which annually moves between 45,000 and 50,000 airplanes throughout the Caribbean”, explained Michael Rodríguez, assistant and representative of IDAC general director, Héctor Porcella, in what is considered the largest general aviation “Fly Adventure” in the United States.
During a meeting with pilots interested in the Caribbean’s main tourist destination, Rodriguez explained that, through the protocol of internal flights, the Dominican Republic seeks to attract thousands of pilots from different parts of the world every year, especially from the United States and Canada.
The IDAC delegation at the EAA AirVenture fair also includes Paula Valverde, Yira Yanguela and Raul Perez.
