Randolph Engineering is truly honored to be a sponsor of the first ever VintageAirRally-  a flying rally across Africa, from Crete to Cape Town, for aircraft built before the 31st December 1939.

Crete to Cape Town

A total of 20 teams will be wearing our military-spec Aviators as they take off to the sky on November 12th. The departure point is Crete, Greece with a destination of Cape Town, South Africa which has been dubbed Crete2Cape. Furthermore, the route almost exactly recreates the 1931 Imperial Airways ‘Africa Route’.

11 Countries in 35 Days

According to the flight path, the crews travel through 11 countries in just 35 days. The stopping points connect some of the most beautiful places in Africa, such as Zanzibar and Cairo, Egypt. The pilots plan to complete the journey on December 16th followed by a celebration at the Castle of Good Hope.
