  • Kulula Pilot keeps a cool Head amid Turbulence
  • Jene du Plessis wrote to us to congratulate a Kulula Airlines pilot on doing a great job: "My last flight on Kulula was quite scary as the plane experienced some turbulence and was very unstable just prior to landing, but the skilled pilot took control and landed the plane skilfully! I would rate it a five as I absolutely love the thrill of experiencing turbulence! It made for a more exciting flight."
