South Africa: Part 1 | Grand Caravan

The 2-part journey through South Africa begins with a departure from King Shaka Int’l airport. We will fly through the mountain range, which reminds me of the Grand Canyon, with the valleys, canyons and streams. Although we’ll start off low, you’ll need to pull up the aircraft before hitting the mountain range at 14,000 ft!

We have a 2-part flight once a month to accommodate European members with a more suitable time then flying through the early morning (past midnight start).

When: Fri, Nov 6th @ 7PM ET/midnight Zulu

Updated the original post with the details and flight plan for Friday night.

Just a few hours away from our weekly Friday night flight! This weekend is our monthly 2-part flight, where we fly both Friday night and Saturday afternoon to give a chance to our European members to join. The flight plan tomorrow will be a continuation of this flight.

In tonight’s flight, we’ll be going over tribal areas in South Africa and flying into the mountain range, where you’ll need to climb to 14,000 feet to avoid the peaks!

It doesn’t matter what your skill level is, all are welcome! See you tonight!

We had a lot of fun tonight! Great scenery on this flight plan and more to come in Part 2 tomorrow :point_right: South Africa: Part 2 | Grand Caravan
