Knight Aviation Historical

Knight Aviation Historical

Knight Aviation always wanted to start a new division called Knight Aviation Historical since Knight got hold of a Grumman Goose G21A when the Cape Town City Council contacted Knight to hear if he could help with removing a Goose just floating in the harbour and none of their pilots they hired could get her to start. He said yes if they will pay us, and they agreed. When we got the Goose back to KA Hangers we soon discovered that the Engines were newly overhauled and the Airframe newly redone. S

Knight Aviation VIP Charters

Knight Aviation VIP Charters

We got a call from an old farmer with the name of Harry in Pofadder asking if we would be interested in a King Air 350 and of course we jumped to attention and listen. The deal was he is getting to old to fly and wanted to trade his 350 for some things he wanted. So he sent us a list of what he wanted and it consisted of 3x Sheepdogs, 1x bull calf, 4x chicken hens 1x chicken rooster and a pig. We could not believe this and loaded the Caravan and off we went to Pofadder (FAPD). When we got t

Just in time for 2019 Europe Tour 2018

Just in time for 2019 Europe Tour 2018

Knight Aviation completed the Europe 2018 Tour just in time to be back home @ Langebaanweg Airport FALW to see 2018 out. We arrived 12pm the afternoon 31/12/2018 just in time to light the braaivleis (barbecue) fires for the old years eve. The 2018 Europe tour took us to some of the best scenery there is, from stunning  mountains with white snow blankets covering them, to the darkest of the earth where the sun barely ever shines and where your compass wants to hit the floor, to an Island the

Asia 2018

Asia 2018

And so another tour for Knight Aviation comes to an end. Asia 2018. What a demanding and challenging tour this has been at times. The high mountains in the Northern part really made this an interesting journey for Knight Aviation. During this time KA went through some really big changes with P3D v4 still new to KA, KA also upgraded it fleet with a new GTX 1070 oc 8gb in the later stage of the tour. KA also found a FMC finally that works more or less with it's AC's (not yet totally ideal, but muc

Saving an Queen of the Skies

Saving an Queen of the Skies

Knight Aviation decided after the completion of the charter tour of Aussie, it is time to expand it's fleet and what better way to do it with an Queen of the skies? Through a very trusty broker and expert on B744 named Brian747, KA got hold of a good solid mid life B744 decommissioned by an well known Airline.    KA immediately jumped at the opportunity to rescue  such a beautiful young Queen of the sky and put her back where she belong at 41 000 ft. Only problem was she needed to be r

LOVING P3D

LOVING P3D

Here are some more feed back on the P3D conversion KA undertook. First I must say I am loving it. KA since done three more flights in the Ausie Pacific 2018 tour and not even so much as a stutter, I am maintaining a FPS rate of 60 and the sim is smooth. Had to do some fine tuning to some of the scenery density but got it now where my GPU are happy. Next will be to upgrade to a 8GB GPU....mmmmm Here are some pics of the last three approaches.

Knight Aviation finally took the plunge

As every one probably by now knows I was considering it for a while now to do a P3D step up from my old trusty (actually these days just crashing) FSX and last Sunday after yet another VAS OOM sim crush, just before I was to start my descend after a two hour flight , I decided it is time for all Knight Aviation Aircraft to get the P3D conversion.  What kept me from doing it in the first place turned out to be a breeze.  That was the buying online - "what if I do not receive the license like
