From as far back as I can recall I have been crazy about flying. I started flying radio control aircraft at the age of 10. However, my latent aviation passion did not become more concrete until 2004 when I completed my PPL and started flying for the law firm in which I was a partner. As part of my legal studies I completed a Master of Laws selecting International Aviation Law as a focus. In 2009 I decided to study for and obtain my Commercial Pilot’s Licence and completed the FAA Instrument Commercial Licence as well as my Namibian Instrument and Commercial Licences. I began to free-lance for local operators and obtained my multi-engine, turbine endorsements.
Since having contracted a severe case of aviation influenza, I bought into Scenic Air in late 2010, quit formal legal practice, and now function as Scenic Air’s Managing Director and line pilot rated on all types Scenic Air operates.
I joined the Namibian Chapter of AOPA as executive board member. I am passionate about anything and everything aviation related with a special interest in Crew Resource Management. In my free time I fly my RV8 aerobatic aircraft and regularly take part in pylon races and air races. I also served as Airboss for Namibia’s International Airshow.
I’m a sophisticated individual who is results driven and motivated to succeed. I’m a Namibian who appreciates this country for its extraordinary natural beauty. I love being in nature as it takes me back to my roots. I also love my work and derive great satisfaction from helping others.
With over 18 years of experience in the aviation industry, along with strong customer liaison, administrative and managerial skills, I am confident in my abilities to provide Scenic Air’s passengers with a professional service. As Scenic Air’s General Manager I look forward to ensure that your flights with us are enjoyable and most memorable.
I was born and raised in Swakopmund and the love of the Namibian bushveld and the breath-taking beauty of its landscapes have been with me since my childhood days. I am very fond of being outdoors and just appreciating the silence that our country’s vast open spaces have to offer.
After school, I studied Tourism Management for 3 years in Stellenbosch , after which I continued my studies with another 2-year Hospitality & Catering Course, during which I gained quite a bit of experience. I started working on a Lodge in the North of Namibia as Food & Beverage Manager & Assistant Lodge Manager. I loved it – being outdoors, in nature – perfect! I moved to Windhoek in 2012 and shorty after started my career in the Events Industry which I truly enjoyed. Yet, I wanted a new and exciting challenge and the aviation industry has given me just that. Being in the industry now for nearly 3 years, I realized that each day brings something new and interesting. I have worked in the Charter Co-Ordination Department to improve my knowledge and am now the Quality Assurance Manager for Scenic Air.
I enjoy my present position as it gives me a very good insight into the safety and security of our passengers and staff and I feel that with our customers feeling safe and secure, they really can enjoy all that Namibia has to offer. Working with people has always given me great pleasure and making sure that Scenic Air always delivers to the best of everyone’s ability, gives me a lot of satisfaction.
Throughout my high school years in a small town called Hopefield in the Western Cape, South Africa, my mom and I always dreamed of me becoming a pilot. However, at that point she did not have the financial capacity.
In November 2011 I joined Air Namibia’s Ground Operations team, which I felt played a vital role in the general aviation sector. I started off as check-in agent and in 2015 I got promoted to Ticketing and Reservations. In 2018 I joined Wilderness Air as Quotes and Reservations Coordinator. When COVID hit, I returned to farming in the Leonardville / Nina Area where my mother owns a farm. In March 2023 I got the opportunity to return to aviation and joined Scenic Air. I am extremely excited about my journey here. My dream is to work towards becoming a Quality Assurance Manager in this exciting industry.
Born and raised in a small town called Tsumeb where I have spent most of my life, I decided to uproot, spread my wings and seek new adventures. I came to the holiday town Swakopmund where I fell in love with the beautiful scenes of aircraft passing our jetty at sunset.
Soon after I started my aviation career at a small company where I completed a few courses. During this time I met some of the most amazing people along the way and some of them was Scenic Air crew. I was invited to join the Scenic Air family in late 2016. I am proud to be part of this great family and workforce with their deep morals and dedication.
We are here to assist, help and advice you with every need in aviation for many years to come.
I was born in Namibia and raised in a beautiful small coastal town called Swakopmund. I love adventure and I am passionate about the Tourism Industry. I was fortunate enough to join the Aviation Industry in 2015 when I worked at the Swakopmund Airport. I soon realized my interest and quickly grew fond of the aviation world.
I am now privileged enough to be part of an amazing Scenic Air team. Be sure that a great adventure awaits.
One thing I learnt in my 20’s was that there are not many jobs out there quite as exciting as flying an aircraft.
I studied at Stellenbosch University, got the Business degree and proceeded to work in the financial sector. Naturally it wasn’t for me. Fast forward a few years and soon I was making my dream come true, building hours in the sky.
The career change made sense, considering my father was a captain for SAA and my uncle a captain for Emirates.
Take to the skies with me and experience that feeling where anything is possible.
For many, flying has become ordinary. For aviation enthusiasts, flying still inspires us and creates a fair amount of wonderful emotions.
During my highschool years, I loved the idea of flying. After completing highschool, my aviation career commenced in the airline industry where I was in Refunds, Corporate Communications, Flight Operations, Cabin Crew, Passenger Handling Agent/Reservations and Ticketing for over 14 years developing a solid foundation within the industry.
The majority of my flight training was spent in our beautiful vast country, Namibia and I graduated in Johannesburg. After a solid step towards my commercial pilot career start in 2018 and many challenges along the way, nevertheless, fortune favored the bold.
I am a goal-oriented individual with a pleasant personality and a tenacity that knows no restrictions. Adept at cultivating a performance-oriented team culture dedicated to exceptional skill, efficiency and customer service within our aviation industry.
In terms of the current industry situation as a result of Covid-19, I believe the market for travel will grow again and bounce back, hence there will always be the need for pilots.
I grew up in a small country called Kuwait in the Middle East. Throughout my childhood, I had the opportunity to engage with people from different cultures and backgrounds. This piqued my interest in travel and led me to my journey to pursue aviation.
Returning to South Africa many years later, I decided to pursue my interest in flying after completing my high school career. My passion for aviation has grown in the last several years and I would not give it up for the world.
My other interests are focused around nature conservation and medicine, fields that I aspire to combine with my flying career. It is an absolute joy and honour to be a part of the Scenic Air team. I hope to share with you the beauty and diversity that Namibia – it’s people and it’s landscapes – has to offer.
My Aviation Adventure started in 1994 when I joined the Comav Team as a Trainee Charter Coordinator. In 2002 I joined the Scenic Air Team as Charter Coordinator. During 2010 I had the amazing opportunity to buy shares in Scenic Air. This has now become my life journey.
Some people say the sky is the limit and I saw that as a challenge. My passion for aviation was fueled at a very young age.
I completed my Commercial Pilot’s License in 2006 and gained experience in numerous sectors as well as on many different aircraft types in the aviation industry. I grew up on a farm close to Windhoek where I discovered my love for nature.
Allow me to take you on a breathtaking journey through this beautiful country with its rich wildlife, vast landscapes and the most beautiful sunsets in the world.
I grew up in Windhoek, Namibia then studied Accounting in Stellenbosch.
After having completed my Articles in Windhoek, the travel bug bit me and I moved to Berlin.
While working there, I thoroughly enjoyed traveling to France, England, Switzerland, Turkey and Canada in my spare time.
I now work in the tourism industry in Namibia and enjoy traveling around Namibia.
I am very happy to be part of the awesome Scenic Air family.
Born and raised in Windhoek, I’ve had the opportunity to travel around Namibia extensively. I have visited some of the special places and have seen some spectacular views this country has to offer. With this knowledge I feel in touch with the touristic side of the industry and by working in aviation, I am able to contribute to their Namibian Experience.
For the past sixteen years I have been working in various sectors of the aviation industry. Organizing scheduled flights, dispatching mercy flights, operating with contracts in foreign countries and planning charters are all part of my experience. Attending to client needs by coordinating relevant information makes my job quite interesting. We cater for client’s needs which range from single turbine or single engine aircraft and any other special requests they might have. All of these fall into my area of expertise and I look forward to assisting you with your visit to this beautiful country.
Working in the aviation industry sometimes involves long hours, difficult situations and challenging experiences, but everyday has something new and entertaining to offer. The trick is to find that ‘something’ sometimes. Working with the crew and staff here at Scenic Air always brings out that something special each day.
I grew up on a farm in the Khomas Hochland area where the beauty of nature is indescribable.
I started working in aviation in February 2011 until May 2012 where I exchanged this for my second love; horses and agriculture. I worked at the Namibian Stud Breeders Association for 10 years, but as time went by, I realized that the Avgas and Jet A1 fumes would never leave my system. Therefore, I decided to return to the aviation industry in September 2022 where I joined the Scenic Air family.
For me, this is where I want to be, helping people to turn their Namibian travel dreams into a memorable reality.
I was born and raised in the beautiful capital City of Namibia, Windhoek. Inhaling the doctor spree that surrounded me, I decided to pursue the doctor’s career. It was upon my first flight at the age of 14 to Nigeria that I developed a huge interest and love for aviation which overpowered the medicine career instantly. I knew there and then when I saw the pilots, that this is what I will become.
I finished high school in Windhoek and went to South Africa to complete my PPL. I came back to Namibia, where I was fortunate and blessed enough to have joined and be part of the Scenic Air team.
I was born and raised in a small town called Unna in Germany.
After successfully completing my Vocational training as a Service Clerk in Air Traffic Control, I started working as Cabin Crew to get the necessary resources to fund my Pilot’s Licence. Not only did I gain experience in administration and ground processes, but also the implementation of flight operations.
I joined Scenic Air in 2018 and I really appreciate the opportunity to combine the two best jobs in the world.
I am looking forward to showing you the beauty of Namibia from the air.
I was born and raised in this breathtaking country called Namibia. I always had a passion for flying and always loved being up in the sky, no matter in what way it was. I started my aviation career in South Africa in 2014 and after that I couldn’t resist coming back to Namibia. It is amazing how much you can see from a birds eye view and I am extremely privileged to be a part of this amazing team.
Hello there, my name is Gustaf /Gawiseb. I grew up in the small town of Usakos, in Namibia.
I started off my initial flight training in 2018 in South Africa, and the same year I obtained my PPL. In 2021 I completed my CPL and returned back to Namibia to seek employment.
As the covid restrictions started to relax, I began my license conversion in Namibia and subsequently got an offer of employment at Scenic Air. I will meet you on your next adventure in our beautiful country. Let’s take to the skies together.
Growing up, my father who was a Fighter Pilot and later Airline Pilot, I always admired what he did and looked up to him. Looking skywards, loving the smell of Avgas and Jet A1, enjoying the symphony that the engine creates and searching for an aircraft in flight has been a thing since I can remember.
My interest in aviation has always been there, I definitely got the flying bug from my dad. Originally from the Hillcrest area in South Africa, it is incredible to be able to enjoy the unique beautiful scenery that Namibia has to offer and what a privilege it is to see from above. Blessed with the opportunity to do what I love, my aviation career started at the age of 17 then kicked off in 2019 at my home base, Virginia Airport in Durban. During the process of my career, I have been fortunate enough to experience a test flying environment and I thoroughly enjoy exhilarating flying.
