My first trip to Baja some 40 years ago included a stop at the Serenidad where we were greeted by Don and Saul (now in La Paz)
As soon as all settles down, we will be talking to the family about a BBP celebration of life for Don.
It might be tough with the virus still a huge problem in both Mexico and the US however.... And the logistics could be even tougher as the hotel can only take so many and there are so many who knew him.
I have to believe that almost every pilot who has flown Baja either knows of or knew Don and what he has done for GA in Mexico. It is time for some personal reflection and thoughts for him and his family. jack@bbp
BBP Telephones, office hours:
We have now completed the changover to a PBX cloud based system. With the new system, we have a lot of "new" options to work out so work with us as we make the change.
Our office hours are 8:00A to 5:00P Monday through Friday, MST however our new system does allows you to call us for help other than normal working hours for emergency purposes.
Now is the time....
With our new BBP Store up and running, it is easier than ever to pick up something BBP. Be it our Brand New Airport Guide, a new BBP Cap, the original Khaki Denim BBP button-down shirt or....
Backing up to our new Airport Guide, it is all new for 2020.
Also, for the curious, we have added all the ICAO airports in Cuba. Not that US pilots will be landing there, it is for our foreign members as well as those that overfly Cuba and are looking for an emergency landing place (no problem)
Go to the Store to see more.

NOTAMS / Alerts
We have made a small change on our Member menu. I have made two choices on that menu, one for BBP Alerts and the second for NOTAMS. The NOTAM choice will take you into the FAA database that covers the US as well as Mexico, Central America, etc. All should review NOTAMS for their destination....
Mexican Liability insurance
The BBP now provides Mexican Liability insurance for aircraft that are not older than 50 years. This is a change as in the past, our underwriter allowed aircraft between 50 and 60 years old to be insured through a special application process.
There are some US underwriters in the US that do cover Mexico's liability requirements. If your aircraft is more than 50 years old, this could be a solution.
