How is Namibian air safety lately?

Jump to last reply

In looking at how one might move about the country, air travel appears to be a logical means. But a few years ago Namibia's air safety record seemed to have suffered.

I've included some links to substantiate the problems I am referring to.

Just wondering what the word on the ground, or in the air, has been lately.

Sept 2008
Windhoek — A woman had to dive for her life to escape the left wing of a light aircraft that cut through the steel pins at the top of a brick wall at her Hochland Park home yesterday morning.
A Cessna 210 aircraft crashed just after take-off from Eros Airport yesterday morning. Five people were on board.
June 2008
Swakopmund — While investigations into the latest plane crash at Swakopmund are continuing, members of the public and tourists in particular remain concerned about the number of plane crashes experienced lately.
Owners of tourist establishments, especially aviation companies New Era spoke to said they were very worried about the number of aircraft crashes experienced in the country. A Cessna aircraft bound for the Swakop-mund Airport after a sightseeing flight over Sossusvlei crashed last weekend, after attempting an emergency landing.
