ALL NTCA pilots flying to Matsieng on 26 May 2017.

Apply without delay for your Permit to Fly (PTF). See directions above. Botswana Civil Aviation inspectors will be on the ground and your PTF must be produced.

Time is unfortunately running out.

NTCA to Botswana International Airshow 2017

Civil Aviation Botswana (CAAB) is getting worried about a low number of applications for Permits To Fly (PTF) for the Airshow.

We know that the worldwide computer virus has affected email comms to Botswana. If you experience difficulty reaching Mr Phemelo Chominyana (ochominyana@caab.co.bw) at CAAB by email, please cc hentie@dwddrilling.com and gknipe@work.co.bw and we will try to assist.

YOU CAN ALSO CALL ME AT 00267 71310935

This is one of the best, if not the best, airshow on the circuit.

We are looking very forward to flying at Matsieng and meeting up with good friends over the weekend.

If you haven't been, make sure you don't miss out. Fly in, camp at the field, hot showers and cold beer with great hospitality.

Look forward to seeing you there Hentie.

I am told that the last two years Matsieng had its own temp frequency of 125.5

Will this year be the same?

Arriving from RSA: When entering FBSK Climb and Descend Area B: Contact Gaborone Approach on 128.20 advising the ATC that you are routing to Matsieng (FBMA) for the Airshow. Approach will redirect you to Matsieng and closer to Matsieng will direct you to change fequency to 125.5. FBMA TOWER will be manned from 0700Z on 26 May 2017.

Safe flight.
