The SAVAF fighter pilots have been without direction for far too long. It is time for an extended operation again. The Air Office has, in collaboration with the British Overseas Territories, determined that the pilots of the SAVAF pack their kit and depart immediately for St Helena Island.

Over the next few weeks, the SAVAF will be participating in various exercises, whilst being based on the island.

The first part of the trip will be in two parts: The fighter squadron will depart from AFB Langebaanweg (FALW), and night stop in Ondangwa (FYOA) for refuel and pre-briefings.

Thereafter the squadron will continue direct to the temporary base at St Helena, where they will remain until the operation is complete.


Move the entire SAVAF fighter squadron to St Helena for operational duties.
