Any pilot who has flown over international borders knows about the problems which can be encountered when entering or leaving countries. With the help of Earthrounders, private pilots on long-distance adventure trips and experienced ferry pilots, we are collating information about costs, difficulties and possible pitfalls, as well as tips on airports of entry and at interesting destinations around the globe. This section of the Earthrounders site has been suggested by Dick Smith and the information is entered without verification.
New data will be added as it is received and placed on top. The initials are those of the person who provided it. Pilots who agree to be available for contact from others are listed under Contributors. Where initials are not included the submitter wishes to remain anonymous.
Your submissions on information on airports, as well as on obtaining overflight and landing clearances without using a clearance company, are welcome. Please send your information to : firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you...........................

Great news from White Rose Aviation:
KOil have agreed to supply avgas 100LL at PLCH (Kiribati, aka Christmas Island) but it must be preordered well in advance.
Not too sure of lead in time. I would suggest that pilots prepay as well to hopefully be extra safe.
It has been reported that AVGAS in those countries is only available in drums and has to be paid un cash:
AL AIN in UAE, MUSCAT in OMAN, COLOMBO in SRI LANKA.
