All African Airways Tours

Welcome to the All African Airways 'September Island Scout' event

Island Scout Event Badge

To earn the All African Airways September Island Scout event award, pilots must scout the islands to the East of Southern Africa for a suitable December tourist holiday destination.

This excursion consists of 6 flight legs of varying lengths. You have the freedom of choice of any aircraft, and as long as you complete all legs during the month of September, you will be successful.

Once you've completed the tour, you may vote for your most popular island destination, and the winning island will be selected for ferrying tourists to and fro in our upcoming Summer Holidays event.

This event is now closed.
