Our Mission
To provide our members with an informative, topical and social aviation forum.

History
International Flyerz was started in February 2012 as a small forum with just a few members situated around the African continent and the world. It provided us with a means of keeping in contact and sharing our aviation experiences, knowledge and pictures. The platform that was used was a free hosting site which initially suited our needs. As the forum began to expand over the years we realised that we needed our own website with reliable forum software that was user friendly and stable.

In July 2015 International Flyerz was revamped with the help of "Code Man" and "Bell 407" to the phpBB platform that we are using today. The forum has moved to a reliable server with the most stable forum software available and we can proudly say that our aviation forum has not experienced any outages following these changes. Of late we have created a landing page using a Portal design where members can find all the information they are interested in in one place. Members are essentially just one click away from keeping themselves up to date. We have even added useful widgets such as your local weather and currency converters.
