Dear Africa Lovers, Aviation Aficionados, Eagles, Family and Friends
SkyAfrica would like to announce that we have officially closed our hangar doors at the end of April 2017. It has been a very memorable ride, and throughout the years we have been blessed with getting to know hundreds of pilots and guests who have come to fly with us on epic safaris, adventure-filled bush pilot courses, gained experience whilst hour building, and obtained their wings through our organisation. They arrived as guests and left as our good friends.
SkyAfrica began with nothing more than a baseball cap with “African Air Safaris” stitched onto it at a visit to Oshkosh and a dream to offer pilots the opportunity to discover the beauty of Africa from the air. It grew from one proud Piper Cherokee 235 to a fleet 15 colourful birds gracing the Southern African skies. From Cape Town to the Okavango Delta, from the red sand dunes of the Namib Desert to the azure waters of Mozambique. From the thundering Victoria Falls to the vast plains of Kenya – SkyAfrica has seen it all!
Most of all we would like to thank our amazing staff who have been with us through thick and thin. Their passion, warmth, kindness, knowledge and unapologetic politically incorrect sense of humour have made this journey an unforgettable one for us all.
The memories will last us a lifetime, and the Finatzer family would like to thank you all for the love and support you have shown us throughout the years.
For those of you who are keen to keep adventuring and discovering new corners of the Southern Hemisphere, we would love to welcome you Down Under to experience flying Australian skies with us at SkyAustralia .
Hamba Kahle Eagles,
The Sky Management
