Pyramid was the busiest airfield over the weekend without incident or ATC. We had over 40 aircraft visiting and a great safety presentation was given by our own Heksie, Santjie White. Thanks to ALL who helped make this weekend the best ever, without you guys it could NEVER happen!!!

Jay Jay the pleasure was mine and thanks for making the effort to support this event. I believe this is the start of a great relationship between the Roodia and Pyramid pilots.

Hi PJL and gang,

We had a fantastic flying weekend, good tailwind on the way down on Friday morning, fantastic people to chat to, awesome aircraft to look at, great food and the most relaxing atmosphere one could ask for, in fact I was so relaxed by Sunday waking up for work this morning was quite a shock :shock: This is our second Pyramid Aviators Weekend and if you are going to have another one next year I will absolutely book that weekend in my diary. Thank you for a terrific weekend. =D> =D> =D>

Cheers, Don.
