Brakpan Aeroclub Flarepath rejuvenation celebration 19th OCTOBER 2018 FROM 17H00

Unread post by Trevcon » Tue Oct 09, 2018 3:22 pm

Brakpan Aeroclub recently overhauled the Runway lights at the Brakpan Airfield whereby the Runway lights are now permanently on to facilitate night flying activities.

A celebration toast / party to the new Runway lights has been scheduled for FRIDAY THE 19th October 2018 FROM 17H00. Those wishing to do some night flying that evening can fly-in to Brakpan Airport and socialise with other aviators at the club. Braai fires will be lit and Braai packs will be available at the Club's restaurant. Other meals are also available. Soft drinks / Coffee / Tea are available to those still flying and Hard drinks of course are available for those not performing any further flying in the evening.

There will be Senior instructors available to provide briefings for those who wish to knock some dust off their night ratings. Safety pilots are also available for those who would require some assistance to do some flying that evening. All are welcome to join us during the evening. Remember, Brakpan Aeroclub does NOT charge any landing fees when one lands at Brakpan Airport. Please just familiarise yourself with the joining and landing procedures of the Airfield as the Airport is under the O.R. Tambo TMA. You can refer to the site brakpanaeroclub.co.za to obtain information on location, circuit information and co-ordinates etc.

Maybe, but perimeter now secured, and the odd arrest made for trespassing, so the message is getting out. I haven't seen a pedestrian/cow/dog for the whole year so far...
