The Childrens Nav- Margate 2018

24 Apr 2018

 

A smaller event to the main annual September event, the Children’s Nav is about giving Children who’ve never flown or seen the Ocean the chance to experience it through the Spirit of Ubuntu and the heart of Aviation.

On the 20th of April, 15 Children and four Foster parents were flown to Margate by a group of pilots who answered the call of our children.

The flight was routed via Witbank for fuel direct to Margate, in the end six of the seven aircraft arrived at destination as scheduled while one diverted to Grand Central due to a toppled A/H, those children and nanny were flown to Durban by Kulula later on and re-joined the party that night.

On arrival Shaun at The Deck Restaurant very  treated the children to Burgers and Milkshakes and a Jumping Castle to kick off the hospitality from numerous local helping hands in Margate.

The children were treated to their first sight and swim in the ocean and various fun activities, including go Karting, the crocodile farm, the butterfly farm and other crafts at the Earthworm Back Packers.

 On the last night the Children were awarded certificates for their first flight and ocean visit, and they in turn awarded wings to the Pilots.

Cemair Airline very kindly assisted the event by flying 14 of the group home on Sunday due to technical issues with three of the Aircraft scheduled to fly.

A very special thank you to the numerous sponsors, the great pilots and most of all the Children who behaved so well and were a delight to host.

We are very pleased with the outcome and look forward to similar initiatives in the future. Now to prepare for the Childrens Flight 2018.
