Designers and manufacturers of Iridium-based satellite tracking solutions since 2002. Our devices are used for a wide range of applications, including aircraft, watercraft, vehicles, birds, animals, personnel and bespoke applications. Our customers include governments, conservation organizations, aircraft charter companies, aviation schools and private pilots. Beegle aviation trackers are battery powered and fully automatic. They are placed on the dashboard and require no pilot input to turn on or off. Position update frequency is done automatically depending on the phase of flight so that an accurate trace of your flightpath is recorded. The battery lasts for approximately 40 flight hours before recharging is required. Ground personnel are kept up to date with realtime flight progress using our online tracking portal, and optionally via text message for take-off, landing and emergency events. This assists customers in effective trip planning, whilst providing an important safety function by drastically reducing the time to locate an aircraft, especially in remote areas without cellphone reception. Furthermore, our trackers can easily be moved from one aircraft to another as needed. www.beegletracker.com info@beegletracker.com +27 (0)21 438 1888

CUBBY AIRCRAFT Plane Sales Based in the picturesque village of Barrydale near Swellendam in the Western Cape, Cubby Aircraft manufacture an 80% scale copy of the Piper Super Cub, with a variety of engine choices. The latest development is the Cubby Renegade which may be flown solo from the front seat and is substantially larger than the basic Cubby. With modern materials and technology, the performance has been vastly improved. The purchase price is remarkably low and operational costs are kept to a minimum due to the use of automotive fuel as opposed to expensive and sometimes hard to find Avgas. The price is dependent on the choice of engine. The Cubby can be registered as a Light Sport aircraft or a non-type certified light aircraft. Undercarriage can be either tri-gear or a tail dragger configuration The Cubby is available in kit form, fast built and basic kit. It is also available as ready to fly or fully built, but without engine, radio and instruments. Jean Crous welcomes visitors at his factory on Route 62 and can be contacted on 072 671 6240.

SABRE AIRCRAFT Plane Sales Sabre Aircraft are the exclusive importers of the Polish built full-composite Ekolot JK-05 and Topaz LSA high wing aircraft. To complement their stable Sabre Aircraft have also secured the distributorship for the low wing all-metal Direct Fly Alto TG which is expertly manufactured in the Czech Republic and available in either kit form or ‘ready to fly’. All aircraft are powered by the Rotax 912 series engines using a Ukrainian manufactured full composite ground or in-flight adjustable propeller from a company called NR Propellers for which Sabre Aircraft is the newly appointed South African agent. Although all these factory built aircraft are very well-appointed, customers have the flexibility to choose from several additional cost options to suit their specific needs and budget. Even with our constantly fluctuating exchange rate Sabre Aircraft is still able to offer real value in Rand terms against anything produced locally with comparable performance and/or specification levels. With an ever-increasing worldwide dealer footprint both Ekolot and Direct Fly continue to produce beautifully crafted LSA aircraft with spectacular performance, proven reliability and established aftersales support. We call it ‘affordable brilliance’.                       RICHARD STUBBS Tel: 27-11 467 3103/3193 083-655-0355 or email: richardstubbs@mweb.co.za or visit: www. aircraftafrica.co.za

Well established as the dominant operation in the flight training environment at Lanseria International Airport, Skyhawk Aviation offers all the resources required for the successful completion of all CAA licences and ratings. As a Designated Flight Examiner (DFE 1) as well as an Airbus Training Captain, Mike is able to assess student’s progress, and conduct final flight tests presenting realistic scenarios. We are also approved to conduct the full type rating for the Airbus 320, as well as proficiency checks and ATP revalidations.

Part of our services include accommodation, transport and visa services. Skyhawk is associated with the Sakhikamva Foundation, and offers programs to high school learners to expose the kids to aviation and spark interest in maths and science through this medium. Come and see our Boeing 737 nose section kitted out as a classroom! If you need a reality check about the sometimes hard truth about becoming a career pilot, then you can’t go far wrong by dropping in at Hanger 30, Gate 5 at Lanseria.
