Flying Reports & Blogs

We can spend all day and all night telling you how great it is to come and fly with us. But why take our word for it? It’s much better to let our clients do the talking, and thankfully several of them have taken the time to capture their experiences in writing, pictures and video clips on various blogs, forums and online newspapers around the world. A big thanks and shout out to them all from the whole SkyAfrica team!
