We are a South African Civil Aviation Authority Part 147 approved Design Organisation. We pride ourselves on providing top quality design work and analysis tailored to your needs.

Our scope includes any aircraft from crop-dusters and helicopters to large airliners. We are capable of designing most modifications and repairs to these aircraft utilizing in-house design and analysis – visit our projects page for a glimpse of what Challenge Air is currently working on.

Challenge Air is a Design Organisation in South Africa (catering to all aircraft types) with Fatigue and Damage Tolerance capabilities for extended fatigue life of modified components.

Perhaps you are looking for someone to design or analyse something unrelated to aircraft? You are still welcome here! Our personnel includes Aeronautical Engineers, Technicians and Design Draughtsmen with all-around engineering knowledge who are more than capable of handling any mechanical or electrical design that you require.

At Challenge Air, your satisfaction is paramount and we will go out of our way to deliver solutions to meet your requirements.
