The pilots

Set in the breath-taking landscape of the Okavango Delta, Bush Pilots is the brand new and exclusive Dave original that follows plucky pilots as they battle treacherous weather, dangerous wildlife and a harsh wilderness.

Away from the usual comforts pilots on commercial airlines enjoy, bush flyers have no automatic pilot, radar, tarmac, or air traffic control. Their runways are often washed away in tropical storms, not to mention the very real problem of having to navigate mating lions or avoid decapitating a giraffe on the runway. It’s a bit like driving on the M69 in December, but in the air. And with aeroplanes. And in Africa.

Each episode sees constant challenges set to test their mettle - from medical evacuations and cargo runs, to facing 20km tropical storms and ferrying rich tourists on exclusive safaris, the challenges for our bush pilots are endless.
