Any idea of the process of hiring an aircraft for the race, or recommended contacts? Being RV6 builder and owner from Australia?

Thanks Dorfie. I am not sure but there were several items auctioned and it is also an awareness campaign by Botswana Tourism with spin offs down the line.

There are various flying schools that will rent you a C172 or similar. They will also validate your licence for you.
