“Follow Tom Claytor, an adventurous bush pilot, as he soars across the African continent”

Braving a solo existence in the sky, bush pilots are often the adventurers that link the lonely inhabitants of distant lands.
Soaring above the few wild places left on our planet - across endless deserts, tangled jungles, jagged mountains, treacherous plains of ice - these unique pioneers serve as doctors, missionaries, and communication links for their ‘neighbours’ residing in desolate regions.

In December 1990, bush pilot Tom Claytor set off on a five-year quest that will ultimately take him to all seven continents. Flying his Cessna 180, a small, classic bush plane, Claytor is working his way around the globe by taking on odd and dangerous challenges which only highly skilled, and experienced bush pilots could perform.

Tom’s landing in the middle of nowhere in Kafue in Zambia also makes for mirth when the locals arrive, one clutching a piece of paper and asking for landing fees. He and Tom calculate the fee to be 560 Kwachas, or one 100th of a US dollar. Tom gives him US$2 - when the ‘official’ is overawed at his generosity, Tom urges him to keep the change, “…. to improve your airport”.

From scanning the vast wilds of Zimbabwe for an injured rhino, to tracking elephants in Botswana, and wondering through the relics of diamond mining ghost towns in Namibia, follow Tom when he soars over dune, desert and delta on this African leg of his round-the-world solo flight: Flight Over Africa.

Please see Tom’s website for details, lots of pictures and a map of his amazing flying adventures across seven continents:
