Just to let you guys know that KFA is still going strong. We are still a dedicated Tailwheel training facility so if you are looking for expert tailwheel training then this is the place to be. For info please visit http://www.fun2fly.co.za

If you are a com pilot looking to build hours and fly for peanuts then this is the place to apply for a job. Tailwheel and instructors rating a bonus but not essential. I am just looking for skill and might have an opening, you never know. info @ saplanes .co .za

(!!) Did my SA LSA license there (!!)
Best value for really learning to fly a taildragger.
There are a lot of good pilots around who think they can teach flying.
But the guys at Komati are one of the few that can instruct and fly.
^*^^
Those others steal your time,money and all the fun that flying can be.
Not to mention the nice atmosphere and the fantastic location (Kruger Park)

I have the pleasure of welcoming Gerhardt Schwarzer as our new instructor. Gerhardt worked as a charter and bush pilot in Namibia and Botswana over the past 2 years, he has 1100 hr's of bush flying experience behind him. Those looking for some taildragger time, this is the place to be.
