Northern Air Maintenance, Maun, Botswana

Anyone in the dustbowl know if Northern Air Maintenance is still around? Their website has been pretty sparse for quite a while. Another casualty of Covid perhaps, due to work drying up?

Hi, yes they are still operating, they only maintain aircraft for Wilderness Air, therefore they probably dont need a website

Thanks for that, flyingnut.
I guess KASAC is doing all third-party maintenance in the delta now.

KASAC's Maun branch have been bought out by Chobe Holdings (Desert and Delta Safaris, Ker and Downey, Safari Air ens) it is now called North West Air.

Major Blue do their own maintenance.

Mack Air's maintenance is done by Absolute Aviation.

North West Air does mostly Safari Air, Moremi Air and some other bits and bobs for privately owned aircraft.

Cheers for the further info, FN
I've managed to contact one of my old Maun workmates and getting up to date on the news now. A lot of changes since I left there 20 years ago.
It was quite a place to live.
