FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
GOVERNOR GENERAL’S CUP – CARIBBEAN AIR CHALLENGE 2012 COMES TO GRENADA
St. Georges, Grenada – After 10 years organizing the largest International Air Rallies in North America, the organizing committee Aviation Connection is this year extending its network of destinations to Latin America and the Caribbean. For the first time therefore, Grenada is pleased to have accepted an invitation to host one of the legs of this unique aviation event, where a 51-member team of pilots and journalists on 19 single, twin and turbine type aircraft from various continents will arrive at the Maurice Bishop International Airport on Wednesday April 18, 2012 for a 2 day visit.
This friendly initiative across the Caribbean by participants is aimed at increasing awareness about the rules and regulations of visited countries, and familiarizing the pilots with the local procedures while being confronted with various situations. It will also increase their confidence and capacity to travel beyond their present boundaries to the benefit of visited destinations. Established in 1953 by Canadian Governor the Right Honourable Vincent Massey, it is considered a noble way to acknowledge the important role that aviation played in the development of Canada.
The Grenada visit of this distinguished group is being coordinated by the Grenada Board of Tourism in collaboration with several local partners and stakeholders. The intention, as requested by the organizers, is to showcase the best of Grenada, so that the spin-off coverage on TVA-SPORTS in Canada will allow its “AIR Programme” audience to savour “the beautiful and friendly island of Spice to share great moments with its people, learn about the history and culture and simply celebrate together”. In this context, areas earmarked for them to visit include the Dinner Theatre at the Spice Basket, the River Antoine Rum Distillery; Belmont Estate, where they will actively participate in a Cocoa Dancing Competition, followed by a visit to the Grand Etang National Park.
Apart from Grenada, this year’s Governor General’s Cup Caribbean Air Challenge event is being hosted by the Turks and Caicos Islands, Martinique, and Anguilla. The professionalism associated with each event and the quality and quantity of support received from aviation partners over the years have positioned this event as one of the most important international events in its category.
The Grenada Board of Tourism views this inclusion of Grenada in this rally as one that will generate enormous promotional value for the destination and greater awareness among pilots globally about key elements of Grenada’s tourism product.
