How many can fit in the planes?
Our plane is a Cessna 207 with 7 passenger seats. However, for flights to the NW Province, with the fuel required, we can take an average of 4 adults with 25 kgs. of luggage each. We can take more if the passengers are light weight or children. Our Cessna 182 is a 3 passenger plane.
If I plan ahead is there any benefit?
Yes, there is a greater chance of having a seat on an existing flight which would save you the cost of chartering the whole plane.
Do you fly on Sundays?
We prefer not to fly on Sundays, but in cases of emergency, or where absolutely necessary, we do make exceptions. Please try to book your flights during the week days. Thank you.
