Air 2000 have a variety of aircraft available for hunters to charter. Choice of aircraft depends on the runway surface and length at the destination, distances between stops, the number of passengers, and the speed and comfort required. All aircraft are maintained to the same standards laid down by the Federal Aviation Administration, whilst the pilots are qualified to the same levels that you would expect to find in a US charter operation.
Charter in Southern Africa is remarkably effective; there is a wide range of aircraft available, fuel and airfields are plentiful, well maintained and strategically located to all the principal hunting areas.
These are an ideal alternative to driving around Southern Africa. With a choice of seating configurations, you can have between 4 and 6 passengers accommodated in these aircraft.
Air 2000 operate both the Cessna Grand Caravan - the ultimate aircraft for a fly-in safari to the wilder parts of Africa and the Pilatius PC 12 which is a fast, reliable option with a pressurised cabin.
If time and comfort is of the essence or a client prefers a pressurized aircraft, a Beechcraft Kingair is recommended. These aircraft are ideally suited to African conditions and generally the choice of the corporate market and individuals who know general aviation aircraft.
If you are in a hurry, how about a jet?
These aircraft have all the mod cons like airshow, compact disc players/dvd and with toilet and a galley.
