2020 Aviation Company Profiles Guide

Southern Africa has a world class aviation industry. We have proven over and again that we can stand proudly alongside the world leaders in aviation. This expertise extends throughout the industry, from the airlines to the Approved Maintenance Organisations (AMOs) maintaining light aircraft at your local airfield. At SA Flyer we have researched the industry and brought together the suppliers of everything aviation related and combined it into a useful A to Z reference guide.

Aero SA Feature

BizJet & CommercialJet

OR Tambo International Feature

Wonderboom Feature

Lowveld Feature

Grand Central Airport Feature

Based in Midrand on the Gautrain route, Grand Central Airport continues to be one of the busiest airports in South Africa, largely due to the flight training schools and helicopter movements. But as the Airport Manager Sarah Thepa rightly says, the welcoming atmosphere also plays a key role.

Helicopter Feature

The versatility and maneuverability of helicopters makes them a unique tool in a number of operations, from aerial patrols and game capture, to VIP transport to remote locations to military troop support. Flying them is an art. If you are an A to B kind of guy who wants to disappear smoothly into the blue, then helicopters are probably not for you. But, if you really want to get stuck into hands, feet and seat flying, then you have to fly a helicopter.

Lanseria International Airport Feature

Lanseria is South Africa’s only private international airport. Based in the north of Johannesburg, it provides a convenient alternative to OR Tambo for people wanting access to scheduled airlines operating to Southern Africa’s major cities. The airport continues to grow its scheduled traffic, while also accommodating general aviation and hosting a number of private charter companies, approved maintenance organisations (AMOs), flight schools. Lanseria is South Africa’s only private international airport.

AMO Refurbishment Feature

Cape Town International Airport

With its iconic Table Mountain, white beaches and rolling vineyards, Cape Town has become a popular tourist destination worldwide. Cape Town International Airport (CTIA) is over 60 years old and is located 20 kilometres from Cape Town’s central business district. To accommodate the growth in traffic, the airport has undergone continual upgrades stimulating investment in the airport and surrounds. Future upgrades include the re-alignment and expansion of the existing primary runway.

Meet The Team Supplement

Meet The Team enables companies to put a human face to the names, particularly of their front line staff, which will hopefully restore a bit of the personal perspective and show that the person on the other end of the line is in fact a real human!

Training Feature

If you long to fly, whether in the airlines, as a bush pilot, helicopters or light sport aircraft (LSA), we feature the necessary information so that you can find the training organisation that is right for you. South Africa is recognised, worldwide, as having exceptional pilots, most of whom would love to pass on their knowledge and experience. We are also lucky to have wide uncontrolled airspaces and wonderful weather all year round, making South Africa one of the best places in the world to fly. So find a school and realise your dreams.

Rand Airport Feature

Rand Airport has a rich history, not only for Germiston but for South Africa as a whole. Built nearly 100 years ago, originally as Germiston Airport, it has had its trials and tribulations, yet it keeps the aviation flag flying high and continues to be a welcoming hub to general aviation. It is home to many of South Africa’s top aerobatic pilots and teams, and a number of classic vintage aircraft are hangared at Rand.

Professional Services Guide

The aviation industry is complex. A short walk around even a small local airport, never mind an international hub, will reveal a multitude of professional businesses working behind the scenes to keep aircraft in the sky. And, this is particularly true in South Africa, where with its warm sunny climate and open spaces, it is one of the best suited countries in the world for general aviation.
