    Hi Marcus,

    That is correct, the Click2Clear system has been delayed. We are communicating with The Bahamas Customs and Tourism groups to find a solution that meets their needs without making it tedious for pilots. Fellow Bahamas Flying Ambassadors like myself, as well as AOPA's president, Mark Baker, successfully convinced them that this was a really bad idea and it has been delayed. There is no new implementation date but we have expressed our willingness to help them find a better solution than what they had planned to implement. I personally spent many hours using the proposed system and documenting its many shortfalls so that we had facts and not just "opinions" of why the Click2Clear system was unworkable.

    They need to drop all testing requirements for Covid. Until then, it's not worth taking a chance going. If you're unvaccinated and get a false positive test, then what?

    Covid isn't even a thing anymore. The Bahamas need to move on.
