Adventure Air was formed In November 2010 when an opportunity arose at Wonderboom airport to purchase a non-operational aircraft painting facility at Hangar 49. The facility was completely refurbished and equipped with the start of the electrostatic spraying equipment. Using our experience as a best-in-class supplier to the automotive industry in painting and our high-quality standards, the business has grown substantially since operations began in January 2011.
An automotive spray booth was added by Adventure Air In March 2011 to allow same-day delivery on smaller panel painting.
In June 2011, Adventure Air negotiated and took over the company Flying Cushion. Flying Cushion has been in the business of aircraft interior refurbishment for some 12 years and built up an enviable International reputation for quality and service.
Major expansion began in April 2012, with the addition of a 3 OOOM² hangar to house aircraft assembly piston engine maintenance and metalwork. A purpose-built wash bay has also been constructed. The completion of the new facilities at Adventure Air was established in June 2012.
In May 2012, Adventure Air took over another interior refurbishment business at Wonderboom airport, becoming the only interior trimming and refurbishment operation at the airport.
Adventure Air is now in a position to offer the aircraft industry a complete high-quality, top-class aircraft refurbishment and assembly service for small to medium-sized aircraft.
In October 2019 Adventure Air and Zenair signed an agreement to grant Adventure Air the rights to have the only professional-build facility In South Africa.
In July 2020, Adventure Air was approved and granted the Part 24 Type Approval in terms of the South African Civil Aviation Regulations under Category, Production Build (LSA) Under type, and model designation: Zenair CH STOL 750 / CH STOL 750 Cruzer and CH STOL 750 Super Duty.
