Our aircraft have a distinct look, feel, sound and personality.
A world in which we capture the emotion and soul of the early days of flight and in which together we work to give voice to recreational aviation and the safety thereof.
To serve our stakeholders through the:
Recognition and promotion of aviation excellence, air-mindedness and safety,
Maintenance of membership and external communication channels via print and electronic media enablers,
Hosting of events that inspire and develop recreational aviation,
Pooling of experience, the provision of advice and by maintaining
Vigilance in measured service delivery by regulatory and legislative structures.
Technology enhancements continuously improve in-flight safety and capability and this has extended the “home zone” of our aircraft from the proverbial cabbage patch to that of a global adventure.
Many pilots fly our aircraft from dawn to dusk not having ventured more than 10 Km from their home base, whilst enjoying the delight of a perch in the sky from which to take in the splendour. This includes that of coastal sea life, the cosmos fields of SA, the thrill of mountain ridge soaring or just sampling the breeze offered by the freedom of “Flying African Skies”. Over the past year the contrasts between the spectacular around the world adventures of some of our “pioneer pilots” and everyday flight have narrowed considerably. Flying the African skies is now a reality for many of our members. More and more pilots fly into central Africa and to Europe. The sophistication of the aircraft that we fly truly is making the world a smaller and more accessible place, at a much more affordable price.
Why Join MISASA?
Welcome to our world, a passionate world of recreational aviation pleasure. Do join us; we will exceed your expectations for fun, adventure and camaraderie amongst like minded people within our established recreational aviation community.
Goal for the year ahead
We remain committed to vigilance in service delivery. Our membership numbers currently approximate some one thousand plus pilots. This said, our numbers may in fact, in the short term, rise by another 500 or so pilots. We have, in the past had some 1,800 members but due to the economic economic scenario many pilots have hung up their "headsets!" Our size places us as the largest sub-section of the Aero Club. Our response to this is that we undertake to establish a system of performance audits in which we all, as sections of the Aero Club, submit to performance audits so that the membership, have their rights to service delivery met, in full, each and every year.
Our Constitution and ARO enable us to stand for responsible and accountable airspace governance structures without over regulation. Measurable service delivery and accountability is thus our goal for the year ahead.
Our Advocacy Role
We acknowledge and recognise aviation excellence through the granting of appropriate awards and designations.
Through our active communication channels we encourage air mindedness, safety, aviation excellence and we give a collective voice to the interests and rights of pilots and enthusiasts alike.
Our members provide financial support to the Aero Club of SA who are charged with the responsibility to maintain interfaces with stakeholder structures such as the CAA, RAASA, Weather Services, Dept of Sport & Recreation, FAI via CIMA and Air Traffic Services, to name a few.
