We learned by experience, that the gathering of a group of people in the Caribbean leads to the making of a party translating into a FESTIVAL celebrating culture and friendship. We are preparing a menu of exciting activities bringing out the authentic beauty and essence of the Caribbean islands as seen through the eyes of the Caribbean people.


Thirty three Caribbean countries are yours to discover ! Every year will bring a different experience always as
exciting and memorable as previous.

Discover the Caribbean like no one has ever before !

Concept

The International Air Rally aims the participation of 35-40 teams with planes, seaplanes and helicopters. International Air Rally is not a race! The winners of each leg are tested on different skills : navigation, physical skills and general knowledge (survival, first aid, etc..). The most efficient and complete team will be rewarded! Not the fastest!
Each team is composed of minimum two participants.

There are no restrictions as to which kind of electronic navigation equipment can be used by the teams. Competitions are created to bring out the particularities of the region: After each leg, the total of accumulated points designates the winner of this particular leg. The winning team receives the honours during the evening reception. The winner of the challenge will have accumulated (total) the highest number of points.

Participants will enjoy welcome receptions organized by our Hosts: Guided tours combined with ground competitions prepared daily by our hosts.

Dear pilot and adventurer, now it is your turn to join us in this new concept of adventure. Whether you register as a competitor or as a passenger, from the time of your confirmed reservation to the end of the international Air Rally our team will take care of all the details and assist you with any formalities if required. The International Air Rally team wishes to make this travel experience one of the greatest adventures you ever had.
