Each flight request received by The Bateleurs is subject to a review process which ensures that two basic limitations are observed, namely:  The Bateleurs will not fly in support of any commercial activity, and will not transport people from place to place.  In addition, the assessment of requests ensures also that there must be an authentic potential benefit to conservation and/or the environment inherent in the objective for each flight. Accordingly, not all flight requests received are sanctioned.  All flight requests are reviewed by the full Board of Directors, and there must be a minimum of three positive responses before a flight request can be approved. Also - for a variety of reasons, inclement weather being a major factor affecting light aircraft - not all the approved flights actually take place.

Our ability to carry out a flight request is dependant on pilot availability. The Bateleurs rely on volunteer pilots to do most of our flying. These men and woman not only donate their time and expertise, but also contribute the operating costs of the aircraft. Depending on the aircraft, this can be in the region of R500.00 per hour. Out of consideration to these dedicated volunteers, we ask you to work with us to accomodate their schedules.

Fuel share request:
The Bateleurs do not charge for any flights. We do, however, ask our partners to make a donation to enable us to reimburse our pilots for their fuel costs.

The Bateleurs cannot do any transportation flights. All Bateleur flights should ideally start and end at the same place. There are occasional exceptions to this which can be discussed with the committee.    

Contacting Pilots:
All flight requests are to be directed to Executive Committee of The Bateleurs by way of a duly completed flight request form and not to individual Bateleur pilots who are not members of the Executive Committee. You agree, by your signature hereunder, not to approach Bateleur pilots for the purpose of making a flight request unless they are also members of the Executive Committee or unless so authorised by the Executive Committee.

Please click here to download the form. Feel free to include any background information, which would help us better understand your request. All flight requests are brought before the committee. After we have reviewed the information, we will contact you to discuss your request.

Once your request has been given the go-ahead, the pilot and each of the passengers will need to complete an indemnity form. Please click on the relavent link below to download the appropriate form (in pdf format) for your role in the mission.
