I'm planning to rent an aircraft and fly to the Bahamas. I've got all the requirements including the Restricted Radio license.
However, there was another requirement which concerns paying of the Annual decal fee through CBP DTOPs and filling the form through eAPIS which kind of got me confused. Now I'm about to pay the annual user decal fee for a private aircraft but is this required if its a rental aircraft?
And could someone please briefly explain the difference between the two and how they should be used for my trip?
