Can a private plane land at Cedros?


Any ideas of any restrictions or any prior approval to land at Cedros?

Thanks in advance

In all the old Senterfitt books and the newer 1998 'Air Baja!' book, it is listed without any restrictions. Baja Bush Pilots (or Bush Pilots International now) may be a resource if you pay them the membership fee.

From 1998:

I have flown in there many times to pick up lobsters for the trip back to the states. No problem but the dogs don't like it. I remember one years ago that was missing a part of his snout - he got a little too close.

Every airport has a military base by it or nearby... The one at the Serenidad hotel for example...

I flew in November 2014 from Ensenada to pick up some friends and was no problem. A small group of soldiers came over and checked our papers as usual. There is a small terminal there but no services. We did not stay overnight.

This is the outfit that offers direct (no customs clearance at Ensenada?) from Brown Field (Otay Mesa) to Cedros:

Reading their info on the link you posted under DO NOT INCLUDE, it says you have to get your FMM at the airport in Ensenada, so apparently it stops there to clear customs.

Further down their page it states....The pilot will take your passport information before your trip and pre-clear you with customs. The plane will stop in San Felipe, Mexico and you will clear Mexican immigration there......

Both San Felipe and Ensenada are international airports.

Ensenada airport is where I cleared into Mexico and bought my FMM when I flew in by helicopter in 2014. Note, a flying FMM is different than a driving FMM, so you won't be able to use the one you may still have that is active! Expect to pay going in and again coming out. See my June 2014 Trail of Missions trip report for the amounts: http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=74324

You can fly into Ensenada or San felipe ( airport of entry)to clear custom then on to Cedros.
You file US and mexican EAPIS prior to departing the USA.

What does that mean? Both the copter pilot and I (co-pilot) paid for the FMMs at Ensenada going in and coming out.

If you are a commercial airline pilot/crew, you are saying? I see that would make sense... of course. Must be some international agreement for airline crews to not undergo the paying of visas as they are working not on vacation?

No David,private pilot and your copilot with certificate number do not need to pay for tourist visa at Ensenada or San Felipe. It has been a few years already.
