Westair Aviation (Pty) Ltd and the Namibian Chamber of Environment (NCE) signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Monday to make a four-seater Cessna C182 aircraft, registration V5-IIM, available to the NCE and its Members to support wildlife protection and conservation in Namibia. The NCE has a membership of over 50 environmental NGOs, all of whom are eligible to use the aircraft and benefit from this extremely generous donation.
The aircraft will fly for conservation. It will be used for aerial wildlife surveys, environmental monitoring and research, surveillance and anti-poaching, and any other similar work to promote conservation, law enforcement and protection of natural resources and Namibia’s environment. Members of the NCE can book the aircraft by contacting the NCE office.
Westair will also cover all line maintenance on the aircraft. Welwitschia Insurance Brokers and Specialised Risk Management (SRM) Ltd have kindly sponsored the insurance of the aircraft. The NCE and its Members are extremely grateful to Westair for their very generous support to the conservation sector, and also to Welwitschia and SRM. If a Member of the NCE needs aerial support but does not have a pilot, Westair will help find an experienced pilot who will volunteer his or her time to fly the Cessna, as a contribution to conservation.
