Pilot Membership

Jul 6, 2009

By Flying missions for us, or simply by becoming part of this group of concern, you will be making a direct contribution to the safe keeping of our precious environment.

We have flown many successful missions and there are many more ahead. We need pilots (Fixed wing, Helicopter and Microlight pilots) to fly the missions. Please join us to keep an eagle eye on things and to hang on to what we cannot afford to lose – our natural heritage.
The joining fee is R150.00

Bateleur’s contribute greatly to the protection of the Environment by giving policy makers, scientists, media representatives, community leaders and activists a birds-eye view of our portion of the planet. We are a registered Section 21 Company and our members are mostly volunteer pilots.
