The movements are primarily from a main operating location in Panama Pacifico to austere locations along the Darien Gap and Panama/Colombia border. Movements occur every 30 days and consist of carrying passengers and cargo to the outposts and backhauling passengers and cargo to the main operating base. At a minimum, the vendor/operator must comply with AAC guidance (This is the Panamanian version of the FAA). 3.0 Requirements for Aviation Support Schedule: Monthly rotations, over a 4-day period, scheduled on a yearly basis. Once the GOP publishes the dates, they are firm. The service provider must complete 100% of the rotation every month.

Requirements may include hazmat in the form of Petroleum, Oils, and Lubricants (POL), propane, and small arms ammunition. Locations: Panama Pacifico to austere locations along the Darien Gap and Panama/Colombia border. Flight Time: Historically 600 flight hours per year, typically utilizing Bell 212-type aircraft (vendor to propose type of rotary wing).
