Promoting the DR for private piloting
The Ministry of Tourism is participating in the 2010 Experimental Aviation Association (EAA) event in Oshkosh, Wisconsin from 26 July to 1 August. Leading Dominican airport and aviation authorities, air clubs and tourism leaders are attending this annual gathering of more than 500,000 aviation buffs in the US to greet pilots, give away DR trips and provide information on the country's fee-free airports, rich culture and unparalleled scenery.
"With 14 modern and welcoming airports throughout the country's distinct geographic regions, the Dominican government aims to increase private flights to the DR. Pilots will discover stunning views of coastlines, beaches, mountains, waterfalls and valleys with charming rural towns and modern cities," said Magaly Toribio, Deputy Minister of International Promotion for the DR Ministry of Tourism.
"Eco-friendly policies keep the DR vibrant and green, so flying within the country offers breathtaking views of nature expressed in extreme and different forms. Pilots can cruise around the Central Mountain Range and land at Constanza, the highest airport above sea level where they will see Duarte Peak, the tallest point in the Caribbean. But they can also explore arid deserts and Lake Enriquillo in the southwest, which marks the lowest point in the Caribbean. With nearly 1,000 miles of coastline, pilots can make landings at short sea-side airstrips along the Atlantic Ocean or Caribbean Sea," said Jose Tomas Perez, director of the DR Institute of Civil Aviation.
The DR for Pilots EAA booth is located in EAA's Hangar C.
Fashion for the little ones
Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach and Palace is the photo-shooting site for the Mirtillo children fashion catalogue of Italy. For one week, from 26 to 31 July, little guests at the hotel are being invited to model for the Spring-Summer 2011 catalogue of the company, with 35,000 catalogues distributed at their stores in Italy. Enrico Scaglia, Italian photographer specialized in children's fashion, is shooting the young models. Mirtillo is known for its high quality fashion children's wear.
Never too late to make a difference
Prince Charles and his wife Camilla toured Brixton Market in South London last 21 July, trailed by hundreds of locals. The market is recognized for its cultural and historical value, particularly to the post-war African-Caribbean community. The royal couple made headlines and the DR, too with the visit of the royal couple. Fruit seller Derek Chong, 50, a long-time vendor at the market, was asked by the Duchess of Cornwall what was good. He told her the mangoes that were ripe and gave her a box. "She asked me what was nice, what would I recommend and I said we've got some nice mangoes. She asked me were they ripe and I said yes - they're from the Dominican Republic."
