GATS – Falcon 900


It was mid-August and I was early at Eros airport to join a flight to Katima Mulillo airport in the far north-east of Namibia.GATS02

The airport at Katima Mulillo is the target for great investments by the Namibian Government. I will be back later with some information on those projects. This post is only about the flight in this nice machine, above shown before departure at Eros airport.GATS03

The Department of Government Air Transport Services (GATS) is providing services for the President and the Government of Namibia. In the fleet you find a Dassault Falcon 7x and the Falcon 900 you see in this post. There is also a Learjet 31A and a newly acquired Learjet 75 plus two AW139 helicopters. Pictures above and below from Katima Mulillo.GATS04

The Falcon 900 is a beautiful aircraft.GATS05

A few pictures from the air. Above looking west (Hochland Park?) soon after departure runway 01…GATS09

…and this is Katutura north-west of Windhoek.GATS10

Above is a village close to Katima Mulillo with small family houses/farms grouped together close to the mainroad B8.

It was a very nice flight in all luxury. And I will be back with some photos and information on our destination – Katima Mulillo airport.

    som vanligt intressant att läsa och se…
    Men dessas maskiner kostar ju en del; varifrån får man medel till detta?
    undrar jockeb

    Hej Jocke,
    Namibia är ett tämligen rikt land – mineraler, stor biffkötts-produktion, lång kust med mycket fisk, turism osv. Inkomsterna är dock inte särskilt väl fördelade. Trots att det är en demokrati är det ett av världens allra mest ojämlika länder.

  4. Hi Anders,

    I wonder if this nice machine is available for private charters? Am in Nairobi…
