Fly Dominican Republic is a website created by Pilots in the Dominican Republic to provide information for general aviation pilots all over the world.
A little bit of history:
Fly Ins from the United States, Puerto Rico and other parts of the world were common but privately coordinated between frindley pilot communities.
Since 2007, in a joined private and gobernment efforts new laws have been put in place to facilitate general aviation flying to the DR. The result of that laws is the active participation of Dominican officials and different individuals in different events in the US and Europe to promote these new policys.
The DR government has made a concerted effort to ensure that aviation enthusiasts can enjoy our country’s magnificent beauty and fascinating culture using their favorite mode of transportation, flying in their own plane. This pilot-friendly approach has DR airports poised and eager to welcome more private pilots each year,” said the DR’s Vice Minister of International Promotion.
The DR’s Institute of Dominican Civil Aviation (IDAC) is partnering with the U.S. National Aviation Safety Foundation to ensure that their 199,000 member U.S. pilots have the latest information on the 13 airports that enthusiastically welcome them in the DR. The joint effort will help to inform U.S. pilots about all of the unique cultural, adventure, and historic tourism activities available to them when they visit.
“Our initiative to promote private aviation makes sense as there is an increased desire to explore the DR by private pilots from the U.S., as well as from around the world. The DR’s enviable position in the Caribbean with sophisticated domestic and international airports, amazing accommodations, unique culture and history, and breathtaking scenery are the main draw,” Said Dominican Officials
Since May 29, 2008, private airplanes under 30,000 pounds with no more than 12 passengers are exempt from any government fees in the DR. When the weather becomes cold and harsh in the north, pilots are secure in the warm tropical haven and welcome provided by the DR.
FlyDominicanRepublic is part of this efforts to increase, inform and welcome general aviation to the Dominican Republic.
So, Welcome and Happy Flying

The Boeing 777 is a family of long-range wide-body twin-engine jet airliners developed and manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It is the world’s largest twinjet and has a typical seating capacity for 314 to 451 passengers, with a range of 5,235 to 9,380 nautical miles (9,695 to 17,372 km). Commonly referred to as the “Triple Seven”, its distinguishing features include the largest-diameter turbofan engines of any aircraft, six wheels on each main landing gear, a circular fuselage cross-section, and a blade-shaped tail cone. Developed in consultation with eight major airlines, the 777 was designed to replace older wide-body airliners and bridge the capacity difference between the 767 and 747. As Boeing’s first fly-by-wire airliner, it has computer-mediated controls; it is also the first entirely computer-designed commercial aircraft.
As of 2013, the 777 is produced in two fuselage lengths. The original 777-200 variant entered commercial service in 1995, followed by the extended-range 777-200ER in 1997. The stretched 777-300, which is 33.3 ft (10.1 m) longer, entered service in 1998. The longer-range 777-300ER and 777-200LR variants entered service in 2004 and 2006 respectively, while a freighter version, the 777F, debuted in February 2009. Both longer-range versions and the freighter feature General Electric GE90 engines and extended raked wingtips. The earlier 777-200, -200ER and -300 versions are equipped with GE90, Pratt & Whitney PW4000 or Rolls-Royce Trent 800 engines. The 777-200LR is the world’s longest-range airliner and can fly more than halfway around the globe; it holds the record for the longest distance flown non-stop by a commercial aircraft. In November 2013, Boeing announced the development of upgraded 777-8X and 777-9X models featuring composite wings and GE9X engines.
United Airlines first placed the 777 into commercial airline service on June 7, 1995. As of June 2013, 60 customers had placed orders for 1,452 aircraft of all variants, with 1,113 delivered. The most common and successful variant is the 777-300ER with 452 delivered and over 700 orders as of December 2013. Emirates operates the largest 777 fleet, with 127 passenger and freighter aircraft as of June 2013. The airliner is rated as one of the safest aircraft based on its accident safety record and high number of flight hours. The 777 has been involved in four hull-loss accidents as of March 2014; the Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crash of July 6, 2013, was the first fatal crash of the aircraft in 18 years of revenue service.
The 777 ranks as one of Boeing’s best-selling models. Because of rising fuel costs, airlines have acquired the type as a comparatively fuel-efficient alternative to other wide-body jets and have increasingly deployed the aircraft on long-haul transoceanic routes. Direct market competitors include the Airbus A330-300, upcoming Airbus A350 XWB, and the out-of-production A340 and McDonnell Douglas MD-11. The 787 Dreamliner, which entered service in 2011, shares design features with the 777. The updated 777X, currently in development, further includes technologies used on the 787.
