When in doubt, hold your altitude; nobody ever collided with the sky.

Unfortunately you cannot visit during the flight due to a world wide locked door policy but When you board ask the cabin attendant if it would be possible to see the cockpit when you get to your destination. Crew generally get ready and setup when the pax are boarding so not a good time for visitors but once the flight is complete and people are disembarked then you can pop in and say hi. :D

Hi there fellow Avcommers,

I am flying from East London to Johannesburg on Kulula flight MN802 on Tuesday the 10th of April and returning on Kulula flight MN805 on the 11th April. I am one of those people having a go at my commercial subjects and building hours and I would really appreciate to see the business end of those green machines. Anyone here that could assist with getting a jump seat on either of the flights?

Kind Regards

Good afternoon ladies and gents

I am booked on a few Comair flights in the near future. Are there any pilots maybe willing to let a medical professional who is an aviation enthusiast join in the business end?
My flights are as follows:

MN465 HLA-CPT 29 June
MN480 CPT-HLA 8 July
MN461 HLA-CPT 14 July

Would be much appreciated!

Hi All,

Not sure if this is at all possible anymore, I am on MN451, FALA TO FACT on Aug 8th 2018 and then back again on MN460. If at all possible I would love a jump seat.
