Avgas for Helicopters Between Pretoria and Kasane

Unread post by Jadon Lovemore » Thu Sep 26, 2019 3:24 pm

Hello fellow aviators,

I am a recently graduated Helicopter Comm pilot working as a private helicopter pilot for a Doctor and I have been given the task of planning a trip to Kasane Botswana in a Robinson 44. I'm needing advice on what the best routing would be starting from Wonderboom airport. Are there places along the way to refuel with Avgas and finally what is your opinion of that fact that I'm a fresh comm pilot undertaking this responsibility?

Any input is greatly valued, I look forward to a possible online roasting.

Regards

Hi Jason. Maybe start a new thread on the front page/General to get more exposure.. Member @Tanglefoot has done similar trips in his R44 a few year ago..
