Meet the Team

Jens Frischmuth

My background is in sales and marketing. I grew up in Johannesburg and relocated to Durban in 2002 to be with my sweetheart, Janine. We got married the same year. My interests include sports (especially motor racing), wildlife, reading, travelling and of course aviation and photography. Janine also enjoys a good airshow, so we travel to many of the airshows together. My aviation outings have turned out to be a very rewarding experience - in terms of meeting lots of interesting people, learing about aviation, developing as a photographer and journalist and having lots of fun doing so!

I am the editor of Going Airside.com, run the website and can be contacted at editor@goingairside.com . Feedback is always welcome.

Andre Vermeulen

My professional occupation is Procurement Manager for a large international organisation. However, my real passion lies in aviation and really anything to do with aviation. I have my PPL for over 22 years and really enjoy going for a flight to relax and be up in the sky. My other hobby is photography which when I am not flying allows me to be close to aircraft.





Garth Calitz

I spent my formative years in Durban, later moving to Pretoria where I am still based today. My working life started with Protea Hotels in the food and beverage department. I later qualified as a chef and spent many years working all over South Africa in a variety of restaurants and hotels. It was at one of the restaurants where I met my wife Christel. We have 3 daughters. My love for aviation was born at a very young age watching the activity at first at Virginia Airport and later Waterkloof Air Force Base. This passion has never died and I hope to share it with you.
