Beechcraft 1900 Operations

FlyAwesome is a highly experienced Beech 1900 operator, having processed over 250 Beech 1900 aircraft through its own maintenance facilities. The Beech 1900 is the benchmark aircraft in the 19 seater market.  It is a rugged and extremely versatile aircraft, proven to be the best in remote operations and is able to carry passengers in all weather conditions from airports with relatively short and rugged runways. 


Embraer 120 capability

Hot and hostile territories are on the increase and the threat to aircraft from Man Portable Air Defence Systems (MANPADS) is an unfortunate reality.


In the past 15 years, more than 50 attempts have been made to shoot down civilian aircraft, of which 29 were successful, resulting in the deaths of over 700 people. Countermeasures are already installed on mainly military aircraft and the Civil Aircraft Missile Protection System (CAMPS) has been specifically developed to protect civil aircraft.


Our Embraer EMB120 was the first civilian aircraft to be fitted with the CAMPS system and has been operating successfully with the system since 2007 flying over 10, 000 hours and carrying over 150, 000 passengers.  FlyAwesome is currently the only Embraer EMB120 operator in the world able to offer this product.


Embraer 145 Operations and Management Services

FlyAwesome specialises in the provision of ACMI and Management services for operation of the ERJ145. This highly versatile airliner is the benchmark in the 50 seater jet airliner environment.



Our maintenance support headquarters at Lanseria International Airport is geared for immediate response to maintenance requirements and support in remote locations.
