Single Engine Aircraft

We often get asked the question “Are single engine aircraft safe?” and the answer is, “Yes!” Whilst it is true that multi-engine aircraft offer extra redundancy, this can come at the expense of extra complexity which, of course, leads to more potential complications. Our fleet has been specifically chosen for safety, reliability and ease of maintenance, which means more time in the air and less time on the ground, allowing us to better serve our customers. Our 3 Cessna single engine aircraft are some of the most popular in the world and highly regarded for their dependability, versatility and robustness. This is why when you say the name “Cessna”, just about anyone knows that you’re talking about light aircraft built for bush conditions.
