Hi Guys

Our VA have started up a Bush Charter section with a C206; C210 and a Porter PC-6.
These aircraft will be based at Hosea Kutako International Airport FYWH and from here we will serve airports in Namibia..Some airports are very remote with grass strip.. Suggest you circle the field first to ensure your runway is clear of wild animals before you land :D
There will of course be connecting flights back to Kimberley FAKM

Only for the serious VFR Pilot as on some routes there will be no Navaids available to assist you with navigation.. Dead reckoning is the only option.. 8)
If you are up for a challenge, the first 20 routes have been uploaded :D

Go check them out...
