Crete2Cape Vintage Air Rally, let your dreams take flight
Date:
Saturday, January 9th - Saturday, February 13th (for 5 Weeks)
Name:
Crete2Cape Vintage Air Rally, let your dreams take flight
Location:
Crete to Cape Town
Contact:

Sam Rutherford
+32 475 930232
sam@prepare2go.com
www.crete2cape.com

Description:

A flying rally across Africa, from Crete to Cape Town, for aircraft built before the 31st December 1949.
Following in the footsteps of the pioneering flights in the 1920s – we’ll connect some of the most beautiful and evocative points in Africa. Flying low along the Nile from Cairo to Khartoum, past the highlands of Ethiopia before the plains of Kenya and the home of African aviation in Nairobi. Then off again past Kilimanjaro into the Serengeti – and on to the spice island of Zanzibar. After a short pause to enjoy the Indian ocean, we continue, crossing Zambia to Victoria Falls, before continuing to Bulawayo in Zimbabwe. Our final days take us into, and across, stunning South Africa – to the Cape, journey’s end.
A rally such as this has not been done before. Ever.
Throughout we will be staying in a wide variety of locations, from 5* hotels to tented camps in the Serengeti (and everything in between). Obligatory equipment will include a sleeping bag, full black tie and a beginners guide to Swahili (all three items will be needed at some stage or another, perhaps simultaneously!).
There will be trials and tribulations, mechanical and human stress – all in stunning visual settings. The support aircraft (both aeroplanes and helicopters) will be busy keeping the show in the air (and perhaps helping the vintage aeroplanes that have made precautionary landings here, there and everywhere).
We are looking for:
Adventurous pilots with aircraft built well over half a century ago (maximum 15 aircraft).
Adventurous pilots with more recent fixed wing aircraft, looking to help the endeavour.
Adventurous pilots with helicopters, looking to help the endeavour.
We are looking for a main (title) sponsor.
We are looking for a TV production company, interested in recording the event and all the action.
