Let’s help the Dominican Republic

July 30, 2008 by Alton K. Marsh, Senior Editor, AOPA Pilot

As happened at Sun `n Fun, aviation officials–heck, top government officials–came to a major air show to ask all of us to consider flying to the Dominican Republic. And, as happened at Sun `n Fun, few reporters came to hear their plea. In fact, I may have been the only reporter there. But still you sit before your TVs eating Baskin Robbins, or whatever it is you do, and fail to go. Put it on your to-do list, or your bucket list, and flog your aircraft towards paradise.

The top three cities for your visit should be Constanza, Santiago, and Punta Cana. The best part? By decree, user fees have been eliminated at those airports. And they have 70,000 hotel rooms waiting.

The Dominican Republic Secretary of State, Jose Tomas Perez, came in person to Oshkosh to ask as nicely as possible for just a single visit. Put the lid back on the ice cream carton and see the Dominican Republic before you kick the bucket.
