Kitplanes for Africa was established in the early 1990s by a group of aviation enthusiasts with a passion for designing and building affordable, versatile, and reliable aircraft. The company's goal was to provide aviation enthusiasts with the opportunity to build their own aircraft from kits, making flying more accessible.

Design Philosophy
Kitplanes for Africa focuses on designing aircraft that are simple to build and maintain, ensuring that amateur builders can successfully complete their projects. The kits come with comprehensive manuals and support to guide builders through the assembly process. The aircraft are designed to handle the tough flying conditions often encountered in Africa, making them suitable for bush flying, farming operations, and recreational use.

Community and Support
The company has built a strong community of builders and pilots who share their experiences and provide support to one another. Kitplanes for Africa organizes fly-ins, workshops, and events to bring enthusiasts together and promote the joy of building and flying kit aircraft.

Most KFA models are be available in kit or fly-away form. Factory completed Safari aircraft will only be available from end 2024 when all factory approvals will be in place. (depending on the country being exported too, every country has their own local rules with regards to accepting foreign production build UL aircraft) Kit delivery times vary according to factory work load but are currently at around 12 to 14 weeks.

The kits are easy to build and the average builder normally takes less than 700hr’s to complete a build from a standard non-quickbuild kit. Various quick-build options are available that significantly reduce build times.

KFA has the best builder support in the Industry. You become part of the KFA family when you build or own one of our aircraft and we will always be there to support you, no matter where you are in the world. No real special tools are required to build your own aircraft and the ones we recommend can be bought with the kit for less than 100 usd.

Engineered for Adventure is what we do and “Build For The Bush” is our motto. Built to be off-field aircraft and suited to the harsh African environment. With super STOL capabilities, high payloads, a decent 100kt cruise (depending on engine and prop) and good endurance, the KFA range of aircraft are of the worlds best in category aircraft when comparing safety, STOL performance, ease of maintenance, affordability and a long history behind it.

Development and refinement of the product range is ongoing.  Please visit our English News article section for new developments.
