All aircraft flying across any U.S. border & Mexico are required to file an eAPIS manifest (Electronic Advance Passenger Information System).

eApis requires the pilot to send an electronic manifest to CBP (Customs and Border Protection). This manifest should include flight, passenger and crew information and should be submitted on any flight arriving or departing the US and Mexico.
Starting with release 2 also supports Mexico Apis submissions (see our website for details).

FlashPass is designed to make the process of compliance efficient, quick and friendly.

Using a simple and easy to use design, FlashPass is the best way to submit a manifest and make flying bureaucracy a non-issue.

Best App For GA Pilots

I’ve been flying GA for 20 years and had never flown to Mexico before because I thought it was a huge hassle and was worried about my plane while on the ground. I searched and found a few sites with an old school way of submitting the MX and US customs paperwork via fax and email. Then I found that this FlashPass app does everything for you. It’s so easy to use, just create a profile for the airplane, one for the pilot and one for each passenger. Then when you know what day and time you are going to leave/return, create a new flight plan and add your occupants and the app will send both US and MX Customs forms for you. You also get an email confirmation so you know it was received on both ends. It’s so simple! The support is also excellent and you can get ahold of someone at FlashPass almost anytime you need. I now fly from SNA to Cabo San Lucas (MMSL) about once a month and this app made it insanely easy. Literally who, what plane, when and where you coming from and going to. Same for the return. So easy.

Flashpass excels

I have known about Flashpass for some time. I didn't understand the benefits. Now I am a believer. Flashpass takes eApis to a whole new level. Creating crew and passengers(and having them always available) along with manifests streamlines the process.

Gone are the days of one manifest partially completed at a time. Crossing the border just became extremely easy for me. Select the manifest, click to file it, forward a copy to your email for confirmation with all the info - safe that infest for future use. Nice!

Lastly, customer services is always right there for support if you have any question at all.

Makes the cumbersome eApis system easy

I have been using Flashpass for a few years now and it nothing short of amazing. The eApis system seems like it was designed to punish the user at every opportunity. I had a question the other night and submitted an email to support. About 30 seconds later I received a text from Arturo from Flashpass. My question was resolved immediately. I was asking how I printed the C7 forms for the Bahamas and I forgot they are automatically emailed once submission has been made. Even if I do one flight a year I would keep this app.
