There are three simple rules for making a perfect landing. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.

Stellenbosch Airshow 2019 PRESS RELEASE no 2

Dubbed FASHKOSH, a play on Stellenbosch’s official airfield name FASH and OSHKOSH, the single biggest airshow and gathering of aviation enthusiasts in the world which takes place annually at Oshkosh Wisconsin in the USA, the 2019 Stellenbosch Airshow takes place on the 23rd of March and promises to be bigger, louder and more exciting than in previous years.

Friday 22nd March is a practice day for the participating pilots and the Stellenbosch Flying Club will host a youth development day with around 200 learners from local schools attending where they will have the opportunity to gain first hand insights into possible careers in aviation. They will also be able to get up close to the participating pilots and aircraft, in particular the South African Airforce.

Flying in Aviators are welcome to fly in and are required to register their intention to do so by emailing airshow@stelfly.co.za or by whatsapp to the club GM Anton Theart on 0798734567. Due to limited space the cutoff for fly-in registration is 19 March and all aircraft flying in are required to be on the ground and parked by 09 00 on the day of the event. The normal FASH joining procedure as published on the club website at www.stelfly.co.za is to be followed and ATC instructions should be listened for on the airfield frequency which is 119.3. Parking will be in the visitors area and you should bring your own tow bar for ground handling. All arriving pilots and their passengers are required to pay the normal R150 per person entrance fee by purchasing a ticket on Webtickets before arriving.

Those wishing to fly in the day before and camp on the field may do so for a fee of R200 which is payable on arrival. Bring your own tent to camp under the wing of your aircraft. Ablutions and braai facilities will be available.

Departures will be permitted after the completion of the display program from 16 00

Unfortunately for many the fact that no payments being allowed at the gate was not communicated and due to it being an option for previous years many took this for granted and will now miss out. Understandably there are a good few upset people. Hope the organizers will have better comms next time.

I wrote and issued the press releases leading up to the event and in all comms we made it clear that tickets should be purchased online, that we were expecting strong support for the event and that numbers were limited. We intended making available at the gate what would not have been sold online however on Friday everything was sold. Certainly beyond our expectations. Planning for the next show will take this into consideration.

Thanks for the reply Stuart , you can't make everyone happy. Have a look at this coms using the SFA facebook account the afternoon before the show saying tickets are available at the gate. So you can understand the confusion by many.
