Petro soon established new opportunities for herself, and also helped to expand her family’s business. She has a self-titled coaching and mentoring company and gives motivational talks to groups. Through it, she is uplifting school students, churchgoers and others, with her inspiring stories, and even has a regular inspirational radio talk show.
She also spearheaded a company that preserves SAA pilot legacy, by celebrating their achievements. Her family’s business broadened from just offering flying safaris, to opening an academy, and including cargo services.
One of Petro’s life goals was to get involved in conservation. She found a way to connect aviation with the preservation of our planet and wildlife, through collaborations with projects in Southern Africa. One of the projects she is involved in is Fire Island Conservation. Through eco-tourism, travellers have the opportunity to fly out to our project base on Ilha de Fogo, and get hands-on with a variety of projects, including our turtle conservation campaign.
Some wish to just visit our incredible island to absorb the sights of the flora and fauna, and others appreciate scuba diving the untouched reefs, with mind-blowing biodiversity. Whatever our guests desire, Petro, and the rest of the Springbok Classic Air team, is on-hand to offer incredible flights over some of the most spectacular Mozambique scenery, to our remote island.
