Non-commercial air operations restricted in Maiquetía
Under administrative decision from the National Institute of Civil Aeronautics
The provision is based on Article 78 of the Civil Aeronautics Law.
Under the administrative decision PRE-CJU-285-12 from INAC, published in the Official Gazette No. 40,064, reads as follows: "Any persons engaged in general aviation to and from Maiquetía international airport shall conduct their flight operations with the restrictions, abiding by any authorizations that may be issued by the Venezuelan Aeronautics Authority."
The decision will be effective 30 days after its release in the Official Gazette.
Why did Gerardo come to Caracas? One day he took the decision, handed the car keys to his father, gave him his share of the cloth business they both owned in San Cristóbal and kissed his wife and two sons goodbye. "He told us he was going to continue fighting for Venezuela," the wife says. That was in mid-2013. He has been imprisoned since May 8, 2014.
